The AZ provides ample leg room, feels secure/stable/ solid with the front leg on the centre line as you push with the other. A slight flex is evident (more flex than the AB3.0) which helps pumping after getting up to speed. I set this up with surfy TKP front, narrower TKP rear + 85mm wheels, and the pump performance is just shy of a top mount with precision trucks. Averaged 17kmh on a debut 8km test... and I am sure it can be pushed further with the right adjustments. Convenient for new entrants to LDP without thinking of brackets or wedges; a fresh feel for some of us who have done it longer. Love thr deck construction & the overall ride feel!
I mean, I thought the AB was the perfect deck (aside from the lack of kicktail) - but no, its this one, this one is the perfect deck...
Build quality looks top notch! Excellent wedged front and de-wedged rear. Set up with Kegels and will try Bennetts for pumping. Might try Paris 165's on it as well. The grip tape is a really cool design with the Zenit logo cut outs. Have to wait for the snow to melt before I can take it for a ride. I can hardly wait! Thanks Zenit for creating a board for Canadian LDP riders who want to buy local.
