The Ember is the street-skater’s commuter deck. We designed it specifically around 149mm street trucks. Slap some Indys on it and some big ass wheels and you are ready to go! We actually prefer this board with Paris Street 149mm, though you are welcome to use any street truck you want. Paris just have THAT FEEL, and this isn’t any favoritism being played here for any reason other than that we tested everything on them, and those are the trucks that we can push the hardest while feeling balanced and turn the best off of one foot, which is imperative for a true commuter board. If you can’t steer the thing, you can’t dodge baby strollers, and you don’t want to hit babies. That’s not really setting a good precedent for skateboarding, is it? We love skateboarding. Don’t hit the babies.
The Ember is tiny. Any skater who can skate a street deck will be very familiar with the stance. There’s plenty of space you need, and nothing extra. Eight plies of Canadian maple hold this sucker together, and we’ve dropped the platform low with a 3/4-inch crescent drop and 1/4 of rocker between the drops. It is the perfect commuter. Easy to push, easy to footbrake, easy to slide, nimble, lightweight, supports huge wheels and thin trucks, which keeps you from kicking the wheels and smashing your face. We have been riding ours with 80mm Orangatang Kegels, but you can fit 85mm Speed Vents on it no problem. Though the deck is small, it is nearly ALL platform, and we don’t waste space on arbitrarily long necks. Because the deck is specifically designed around street trucks, you get to stand next to the wheels, where you have the most control and leverage. No other commuter board is made this way.
