LeanBoard Longboards

Comments

I'm not happy with the leanboard. This is a review of the 38” Bamboo Zerogravity Leanboard. Which can be found here https://leanboard.us/collections/all/products/zerogravity-leanboard on leandboard’s site. This will be a review of my experience buying and riding a leanboard. If you are familiar with the leanboard advertising you know they make it look sleek, sexy and the next step in longboard technology. If you aren’t familiar with leanboard here is a quick blurb from their site: “ We made the LeanBoard for: Long distance pushes The wheels are 108 millimeters and made out of urethane. These big wheels allow it to easily go over any terrain, giving it a smooth ride without compromising the ground clearance. It will get you around town little faster. Better handling and stability It has a low center of gravity. This longboard is lower to the ground which makes it perfect for cruising and carving purposes and is also better for handling. The increased stability and gives you more confidence to make those quick sharp turns. These trucks are spring-loaded so you get a constant force. It’s very consistent throughout your ride, which makes it very responsive.” I currently ride a landyacht drop switch 40” with double barrel bushings in the back and double cone 82a bushings in the front. The front has a 15-degree riser. The trucks are the standard bear trucks that come with the board along with 70mm 75a fatty hawgs. I mostly do long distance longboarding and freeriding. So I like my setup to be low, carvy and able to do a little pumping. My current setup does all of these things, but there is always room for improvement. So I started looking to try a new board and to have a backup. I was considering a pantheon board, but then I heard about the leanboard and my interest was peaked. Along with the claims above they also claimed it was like snowboarding on the pavement. This had my attention because I got into longboarding through freebording(which is designed to be like snowboarding) so anything like snowboarding was a bonus. I managed to get the board 5% off with free shipping they were running coming out to around $380 as opposed to $416. This wasn’t easy and took some help from customer service, they did a great job communicating and helping me use both of these discounts they were offering. The board came in and I was stoked. I put the board down on my kitchen floor just to see how responsive The carving and leaning was. It felt rather slow. Kind of like carving through molasses. So I put the board over and looked at their spring setup where the bushings would usually be on another longboard. It looked as though the two nuts that lock the spring on had already been loosened as much as they could. So I took it out onto my driveway and pushed around a little bit and found the carving was hard to do. It just felt like handling a freight train compared to the setup I currently have. On top of this even once you're maxed out leaning in it doesn't have a great turn radius. I was expecting this thing to be better than my current longboard in carving or at the very least equal. Unfortunately, it was neither. I ended up loosening this spring as much as I could by taking one of the nuts off. Just to see how it felt as Loose as I could get it. It's hard to describe how it felt after that. It was kind of like a teeter-totter and how quickly it would go back and forth. After skating around the neighborhood a few times it would take too long to go from heelside to toeside and vice versa on carves even loosened all the way up. This in turn made it rather hard to do precise slides. The big wheels however made for a smoother ride and let me go over potholes and other things without a second thought that I would usually avoid on my other board. When I got back in the house I went ahead and remove the spring and put in bushings to see if this felt any better. Once again the hardest way to describe how it felt but even with bushings it didn't feel like a regular longboard and once again it felt like Teeter tottering which was hard for long-distance pushing. The one thing it's rather frustrating is that the two hanger bars that make up the trucks could still extend further without hitting the wheel it looks like in allowing for bigger car as well as the board could still carve a little deeper so the potential for bigger carve was there but it looked like it was designed to not get its full potential. I could be wrong about that because I'm not an engineer, but I thought it was worth mentioning. I was super frustrated and disappointed with this board. After skating around on it in the neighborhood for about 30 minutes it was getting late so I decided to sleep and go on a long ride on it the next day before I passed judgment. I should also mention that the clear grip stuff, I wouldn't call it tape, on the top of the board, was more for the board’s looks and was not very good at gripping. I took the board on a 7 Mile ride the next day up hills, down hills both steep and mellow you name it I tried it on this board. Even though I'm going down some steep hills, I'm not bombing them going straight down, I'm doing wide carves to shed speed. This is the exact same route I take on my other board so I was expecting this board to handle the same. It did not. For starters, it sits higher than what I read online. This brought it up about 3/4 of an inch higher than my regular setup. It sits around 4.25 inches. I plan on doing a video showing all of this and I'll get exact measurements then. Along with this as I said the trucks just weren't as snappy to go back and forth on carves so just didn't feel as responsive and as a result, I didn't feel as in control. Also, due to the trucks and the grip tape, I had trouble taking a fast wide turn, I usually do without a problem on my other board, and I had to bail into somebody's yard because I could not trust the grip tape along with the trucks. Lastly, you can technically pump this board however the amount of work and energy you have to put in doesn’t justify the momentum you gain. You are better off just pushing. Once again I have to explain my frustrations with this board. I paid $380 for it and unfortunately when it comes to most skate gear, and specifically this company, they only accept returns on unused brand new gear. So there was no way for me to test this before buying it. So I'm stuck with this board. Thankfully my wife has gotten into longboarding and this board is actually a good fit for her. It's easy to learn to carve with. The big wheels help make sure you don't catch a crack and eat it and the board is nice and wide and long and for the size of the wheels it's it's pretty low. These are the beneficial things I have to say about this board. It is a good beginner board however at the price it currently sits there are plenty of other beginner boards that are just as good that are much cheaper. I reached out to Leanboard several times, with some of my concerns since receiving the board, and they still have yet to return my emails. So good customer service buying the board, not so good after. So here is an overall summary Pros - Large wheels are great for keeping speed and going over small debris and cracks. - Sits relatively low for how large the wheels are. - Stable ride - Solid beginner board. - Quick response from customer service before buying a board. Cons - Grip on top of the board is lacking. - Doesn’t stand up to the claims of their advertising, including ride height.. - Turn radius for the carves is average, possibly even below average. - The spring tension system makes for a different ride/carve than other boards and not in a beneficial way. Feels like carving through honey. - Expensive for just a beginner board. You can better beginner boards at a cheaper price. - No customer service since buying the board. - Although possible pumping isn’t effecient or practical even at higher speeds/ TLDR; Doesn’t stand up to advertisement claims on carving and pumping. It's an okay beginner board, but there are equal quality or better beginner boards at almost half the price.
I have a question about the wheels... it looks like the wheels are rounded side to side which means there is a smaller contact patch which typically means less grip. Would this be the case with lean boards? I’m not into sliding, I just like cruising and carving hard
How much is it for such a board wanna get me a full setup
Do you ship to London?
Hi Pramash, The lean concept really speaks to my and I would love to try one out. Therefore I wonder if someone in Holland has a board so I maybe can try a board before I buy one, the shipping is so expensive :(
i want to prove it
How long do they normally take to arrive in the UK?
Tx rollin on peagravel
Just a slow cruz Down street
Just got my for the weekend had some fun on a hard pack dirt road and yes it rolled fine and Smooth takes no effort to get moving thou it dosent work in high cut grass but that was nice to bail into .... But it did roll on Golf course trimmed short grass I played on ..... So it will take some time to get the hang of the lean for me it kinda rides and turns more like a snowboard and I have yet to find my settings will update soon add pic also got to break out helm and pads now for some downhill speed runs as soon as I get this tuned right

WE LOVE LONG BOARDING.

When no such board existed, the team decided to create it themselves. After three years and numerous prototypes, the patented radical high-performance trucks of Lean Boards were born.

WHERE WE COME FROM.

CEO and primary engineer, Enzo Shinde, had just arrived in California from Mumbai, India in 2008 when he came across his first longboard. Enzo got hooked right away and soon started to look for ways to improve the ride. When he found that bigger wheels made the ride smoother but threw off the center of gravity, he decided to put the engineering degree he was pursuing to work by creating the perfect trucks.
