The Maze is a casual and compact version of the AB 2.0. Pressed in the same mold, it features everything you need for an enjoyable long-distance push.
The double drop brings the deck's standing platform close to the ground. This year, the slightly stiffer construction has been designed to provide maximum pumping potential while avoiding bottoming out. Its abrupt cut-outs and absence of kicktails noticeably reduce its weight to make this long distance pusher as portable as any other cruiser out there. The very same cut-outs are now home to newly designed wheel wells so you can fearlessly ride those big wheels you've been dying to go fast on!
Stiffness: 7 / 10
Push : 10 / 10
Cruise : 9 / 10
Weight : 3.34 lbs
We recommend you add a ply if you weigh more than 260 lbs.
Bio sourced Greenpoxy laminates two sheets of pre-tensioned, pre-cured triaxial fibreglass to four plies of Hard Rock Canadian Maple and one central Poplar ply. Put together, you have a water resistant distance board,
It goes without mentioning that the fibreglass eternally protects the graphic from rocks, curbs, and worst of all, speed bumps. That’s right, the graphic’s there forever!
Simplicity enthralls; complexity gets lost in the cacophony.
I bought this board to do long distance pushing and it does that so well. The deck is about 3 inches from the ground with 85mm wheels and paris street trucks. Pushing has never felt so easy and there is plenty of standing platform. That's what I was most worried about being 6'1". It is a pretty flexy board and I like that alot aswell really makes the ride more fun and you can use said flex to pump. Super glad with my purchase I've put 35 miles on it so far. I doubled my 4 miles push my first day and keep progressing. If you wand a good board for cruising or ldp this is it.
The folks at Zenit helped me decide on a setup. They were very patient during the order process and provided me with knowledge on various aspects of their products. When I did finally submit an order they had the board to me in under 3 days! Enjoying the riding experience so far and I will be back for more when the time comes.
im so glad i got this board. its super stable & cruises for such long distances. im a bit new to boarding so the drop helps me consistently place my feet in the same spots, & also the lowness makes it easier to push since i dont have to lean down as far. it turns perfectly fine. not as sharp as my sisters pintail but thats to be expected.
i got the basic set up that zenit recommends & have a small bit of wheelbite. its sublte enough that i didnt notice until i looked at the bottom of my board but its still there. my trucks arent loose either. my only other complaint is zenit doesnt have a setup video specific to this type of board. i followed along their other one on youtube & accidentally top mounted it at first because i wasn't thinking lol
id give this 4.5 if i could but the only options are whole stars
The AB Maze 2.0 is a great board for cruising, its low profile makes pushing significantly less strenuous even for beginner cruisers. The board has quite a bit of flex, which may require getting used to but upon adjusting for this, the flex helps out a lot in transferring energy from each push. If you are not a fan of high-flex boards, make sure to add additional maple ply and it will be great!
Perfect for long treks. Comes with clear grip already applied. I put a Bennett Vector 5.0 on the front with 7° drop through wedged riser, and 1/8 axle spacers to prevent wheel bite with 85mm Seismic Speed Vents. I used Teflon tape on the axle threads to accomplish this. For the back truck I found that a Thunder 137mm with 1/8 inch drop through shock pad has the same ride height, works great, and is extremely light. With this setup you can curve, pump, bomb, and skog with no problem. I recommend custom bushings, and washers.
