Arbor Advances With An Assault

This new fiberglass-reinforced, drop-through skateboard design provides the ultimate freeride experience with unmatched control and stability at speed.
Arbor’s most advanced downhill design, the Assault is a fiberglass reinforced, drop-through skateboard that’s built to deliver high-level speed, drift, and carve performance. The new Assault’s cambered, symmetrical shape is ideal for switch and slide management, while its flex provides an amazing level of rail-to-rail power with a phenomenally smooth ride. Added sidecut creates a centered stance and improves turn initiation. Expect stability, control, and return in a lightweight package.
“With the Assault, we set out to refine the shape of our new Axis skateboard deck and create the ultimate all-around freeride design,” says Arbor’s President, Bob Carlson. “We enhanced the materials and adjusted the specs to deliver a flex, wheelbase, and lightweight shape ideal for hardcore downhill freeriding. What we ended up with is the most responsive drop-through on the market, built with a completely unique fiberglass-reinforced lay-up.” The Assault is built with a combination of sustainably sourced maple and pre-cured fiberglass. The deck is finished with tip-to-tail Jessup grip tape that includes a die-cut logo. Completes come Arbor’s new 72mm, 75A Durometer Slalom Series Wheels (made from sucrose-based bio-urethane), 9” Gullwing Chargers Trucks, ABEC 5 bearings, and recycled plastic risers. Complete Assaults are competitively prices at an MSRP of $249.50. Arbor Assault Video from Arbor Collective on Vimeo.
