A limited amount of each of our most renowned boards have been decorated with a Birdseye Maple veneer just under the graphic. Each veneer has been carefully observed by all of us here at Zenit to assure that only the most outstanding pieces show up at the bottom of your deck.
Birdseye is the name given to a growth anomaly occurring in hard maple. These little eye-looking knots are most likely formed from the tree’s attempt to create new buds in its grain in order to absorb more sunlight. Due to many debatable factors, the tree must halt the procedure and resume its normal growth. While Birdseye Maple is not its own species, its distribution is almost EXCLUSIVE to Northeastern North American
A rarity found in automobile trim, jewellery boxes, guitars, and custom rifle stocks to name a few of its uses, it’s not an easy feat to find Birdseye Maple. No one knows exactly why Birdseye Maple comes about, but all the real ones know that it’s synonymous with Luxury. Land your feet on one of the 10 Tango made before this limited collection flies off the shelves!
The board description you will see BELOW is that of the Tango. This is a reminder that you are on the Birdseye Maple page, so be confident that if you add one of the options ABOVE to your cart, you are selecting the Birdseye Maple edition.
Dancing so elegantly and enticingly will come to you naturally as your feet move in cadence with the Tango. A gracefully rigid flex throughout the deck provides a predictable platform tailored equally to dancers and freestylers with a flow running through their veins. Vivacious curves along the board’s middle gradually progress into square tails subtly introduced by 1/8” microdrops creating a contour with ample room to confidently land with your feet over the wheels, perfect for those who use the entire length of the board or who practice no
Sitting atop two inches of different wheelbase options, the Tango inspires a plethora of different steps and maneuvers that are certain to fascinate onlookers and to enchant the artist lucky enough to ride along on it.
Weight: 4.2 lbs
The recommended rider weight for this board is below 250 lbs.
Laminated together with bio sourced Greenpoxy, five plies of Hard Rock Canadian Maple create the strong core needed to withstand deep dancing carves and multiple freestyle impacts. A top layer of pre-tensioned triaxial fibreglass offer a smooth outer surface perfect for quick footwork, and a bottom layer works as a water resistant and graphic containing shield.
Pre-tensioned triaxial fibreglass is exceptionally durable and splinter-proof, as opposed to
a traditional triaxial fibreglass application. It adds strength to the board
and noticeably increases pop, so while the natural flex pattern of the wood is
maintained, the potential for tricks is elevated.
Simplicity enthralls; complexity gets lost in the cacophony.
