Amazing board

It only took me 30min of riding to fall in love with the board. The flex is on point (dampers rough pavement without feeling too flexy when pushing), stability is stellar (with 180mm RKPs) and the super low platform makes it really effortless to push. It's also super nimble and it feels like it would slide smoothly with freeride wheels. Such an upgrade from my good old Landyachtz. I just can't stop riding!

Amazing Board

This board pushes and foot brakes like an absolute dream! Super stable, and has paired exceptionally well with 165mm Paris RKP trucks and 85mm Speed Vents! Not quite rail matched, but close enough for me.

Like a cloud

At 32 years old I decided to get back into skateboarding. I purchased an AB after trying a friends board. I’m so glad I chose the AB, I can cruise anywhere however I want. If I want to go fast I easily can, if I want to chill and push a couple times a minute I can relax. This board is so fun to explore pathways and suburbs with. My feet feel well planted and there’s board under them, I’m comfortable taking this board out all day and doing errands or whatever I need to. It’s so confidence inspiring my wife has claimed it as her own.

Great upgrade from the previous ABs

I was hesitant at first getting an ldp board that had a taper, but I couldn’t be happier with it. The taper is mild enough, I haven’t kicked a wheel a single time, even when exhausted 30mi into a session. I do appreciate a flex for long distance, but this being a stiffer board I get better speed than ever before. Adjusting my trucks to the farthest length, I do get a bit of flex when pumping (I’m 190lbs). The deck itself looks super slick, having had many compliments in just a few weeks. The carbon fiber and fiberglass really hold up against the rain as well. The concave helps lock in for some of the sketchier turns and hills, as well as preventing foot fatigue. Out of my current 11 setups, this takes 1st, and I highly recommend grabbing one for yourself.

Nearly Perfect Commuter

The AB is one of the best commuter boards around. It's light, flexy, carvy, extremely fun, and beautiful. I've landed on using 165mm RKP trucks with 85mm wheels. It's one of the most fun double drops on the market.

The strengths of the AB as a commuter also somewhat limit it as a proper LDP board. It has a good bit of flex, which does a few things: it dampens vibrations, it makes for a pumpable deck when setup with appropriate trucks, and it makes pushing very easy. Unfortunately, the flexiness also makes it feel a bit unstable when going down hills. I'm not talking about freeriding or high speeds, I mean hitting any notable incline on your commute. It's sort of springy, which is a lot of fun in most cases, but not confidence-inspiring on inclines at speeds where more stiffness would offer a bit more control and stability.

The asymmetrical shape is similarly mixed in terms of impact. It helps create a more carvy ride and gives a certain power carve from the rear. It also feels a bit cramped. The drops are less progressive that other top tier double drops so I sometimes struggle to find the best spot to put my feet, especially when hitting speed.

Something about the design limits wheel options. On other double drops, I'm able to put 150mm trucks on with 85mm Speed Vents without getting wheelbite. It's not as easy with the AB, I think because the drops are less progressive, which creates a smaller space on the neck for big wheels. Not a major problem, 165mm trucks are nearly as fun. But it's not perfect for me.

Overall, the AB is one of the best boards you can get for commuting, carving, and cruising. I own a half dozen double drops and the AB is arguably the carviest of them all. I'd like to see future editions add even more progressive drops, add a little more stiffness, and make the deck more symmetrical. Imperfect, but still stellar.
