AB 3.0 - Complete Builder

Fantastic deck with one limiting personality quirk

Purchased the AB 3.0 back in November and wanted to spend plenty of time with it before reviewing to ensure that I could give honest long-term impressions. The set-up I've been riding the most has been 160mm Cal Standard TKPs w/ a variety of wheels from 80 to 90mm.

The AB 3.0 deck is fantastic; it's low with great wheel clearance for LDP/cruising with admirable rail-to-rail carving ability without any wheelbite to speak of. The deck has a good amount of flex to absorb vibrations over rough terrain or sidewalks making for an ultra smooth ride. The subtle concave and tapered width lends itself to a stable, controllable, and comfy standing platform for longer rides. I honestly love this board, which makes it painful to write about the only big caveat, which I've found mentioned by a few others online as well: the truck mounting holes.

The mounting holes are either not spaced correctly when they were drilled or were drilled at not quite the right angle on my deck. This limits the wheelbase and truck options significantly; my board mounts Caliber Standard TKP and Bear Gen 6 RKP trucks correctly only when I use the longest wheelbase option (1st & 3rd mounting holes) and nothing else. I've tried Caliber II, Caliber III, Paris Street, Paris V3s, Indepedent Stage 11s, and Thunder Hollow trucks and not one of them mounts properly on this specific deck. The baseplate gets jammed up at an angle unless I quite literally hammer the screws in with my skate tool. When/if the screws do go in, they do not sit square with the deck by 5-10 degrees and shave material from within the truck mounting holes.

I like experimenting with my deck set-ups over time and I reached out to support when I discovered this earlier this month when trying to swap over to Cal III RKPs; it's been weeks at this point with no acknowledgement-- I understand it's a smaller operation and we're at the peak of busy season as winter clears, but not a lot of options left on my end.

Hey Zach!
Sorry about that! That was a problem we had with some of our boards before, but we've sinced ironed out the kinks in the drilling process and slightly widened the holes to further avoid this problem.

AB 3.0 very short term review

The weather and work have prevented longer rides but so far, I love my new board. Build quality seems great. The only glitch was very minor, I think it should have come with some thin, soft risers/shock pads. Being a double drop, the "name" of the trucks sits right on the board. I ended up creating my own from gasket material. Not a big deal, just something that should be included I think. Not saying for free either, just to be clear. The board is configured with Paris V3 165mm 50º and Orangatang Caguama - 77a 85mm wheels. Again, very low distance on it, at this point, but it rolls like butter! Nice turning, but not twitchy. Will need to push harder to check for wheel bite, a static test on carpet reveals it's close! Might replace roadside cones with barrels and go harder all the way around too. Need some more time on the board to figure that out for sure. Overall, 5 stars for the company, ordering and the board itself.
