Push effortlessly around town and down the street on a complete that rolls forever! The AZ's wedged shape promotes pumping in the front and stability in the back. Enjoy precise turns thanks to the Caliber III trucks and maintain momentum on the new Zenit LDPs. The Calibers let you choose whether you want rake or not, and the LDPs 90mm diameter make the ride feel like it never loses its speed.
The complete board is shipped unassembled so, if you don't own one already, we recommend the purchase of a Skate Tool to setup your complete board.
A sturdy long distance pusher with a tail. Take it off curbs and over speed bumps, all while keeping the graphic pristene.
A 10° wedge and 13° dewedge make for a lively carve in the front and a less sensitive truck in the back. The extra truck angle at the front helps you pump, and the lower angle in the back reduces the truck's angle for a damper turn.

A bio sourced epoxy laminates five plies of Canadian Maple into a rigid, water-resistant core that’s protected by a sheet of pre-tensioned fibreglass on either side, eliminating warping entirely. A solid board with ideal flex.
You bet! When a pesky pedestrian directs your sidewalk surfing off the curb or you heading for a great big crack in the road, having a tail to get the front wheels up off the ground can keep away scratches and stress fractures. If you ride it with Zenit LDPs, you could probably hold a rediculously long manual too.
Simplicity enthralls; complexity gets lost in the cacophony.
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.
