Reviews: The Axis Skateboard
â€œArbor just released their new freeride skateboard, the Axis so team rider, Jimmy Riha and I thought it would be a good idea to go out and give them a test run," says Arbor skateboard team rider, Josh Hunt. "I grabbed the Bamboo Axis and Jimmy snagged the Koa Axis. The skateboard comes complete with 9" Gullwing Chargers, ABEC 5 bearings and the new bio-urethane Arbor 72mm, 75A Durometer Slalom Series Wheels. We went out to some of the local San Diego hills to lay it out on some bio-urethane!"
"The Axis is an epic freeride board with a little bit of flex and with the drop-through itâ€™s easy to slide and just have fun. Carving was a snap, back and fourth listening to the wheels grip the pavement, you could just hear how solid the ride was. Itâ€™s a skateboard you can also have fun on flat ground just shredding around town. Jimmy took a couple runs down some underground garages that night. His review was simple, â€˜too much fun!â€™ Taking it to a parking garage with some friends was a good timeâ€“carving and gripping around turns. I love the way I can slide these boards and bring it back inline so easy. Thanks Ardor for hooking it up and making another sweet skateboard.â€
