The New UFO Downhill is a great setup for people who want to go fast and drift through corners like it's nothing. The board is a smaller version of our Mini Marble series and features Caliber III Raked trucks with a 50 degree angle that can handle any terrain you throw at it, and whether you tighten the trucks for a faster ride or leave them playful for freeride is your choice. The Orangatang Kegels are amazing for Downhill since their bigger contact patch and diameter means there's more grip between the wheel and the road, meaning engaging in corners more aggressivly and efficently.
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.
Back from its interstellar ellipsis, the UFO is a board that neither gods nor mortals can avert their gaze from. An otherworldly font stands out amongst a splattering of stars that litter the depths of the deck’s dark night sky. It is engineered for DH and fast freeriding, accelerating out of the apexes at puzzlingly rapid velocities.
Its microdrops at the front and back and its widened hips create the ideal leverage for slides, and its gentle concave secures your feet, ensuring you remain on the craft for the duration of your descent. Because of its flared wheel wells, you can fit trucks from 110 to 165mm on the board depending on the size and core placement of your wheels.

Seven plies of Hard Rock Canadian Maple are laminated by a bio sourced Greenpoxy resin between two sheets of ultra resistant pre-tensioned triaxial fibreglass. Further reinforced by unidirectional carbon fiber cross, the UFO doesn't torsion.
Simplicity enthralls; complexity gets lost in the cacophony
