New Comet “Cosmic Bling” Series – Liam Morgan pro model and The Archetype[wptouch target=”mobile”]
Comet Skateboards has just released two new downhill/freeride skateboard shapes for 2013. Liam Morgan has updated his signature shape with new concave, rocker, wheelwells, and a different nose contour. And a ballin’ graphic.
The Archetype is a topmount freeride “brick” shape, resulting in a very functional, no-frills deck. Topmount shapes like this are really starting to take off this season.
The Archetype is the bare bones of what you need in a symmetrical freeride board. It has an extremely comfortable concave, symmetrical rocker, wheel wells to satisfy the two mounting options and width where you need it regardless of riding switch or regular. The flush mount compensates for the rocker keeping your trucks at the angle they were made to be at.
The shape of most skateboards has been the same popsicle stick shape for more than twenty years because it is the most functional and was the inspiration for this board. From the first hand cut version by Anthony Flis through the extensive testing of Jesse Breiman and others we finally cut away enough fat to give you this awesome shape giving you the most purely functional board possible.

“I designed this board after years of riding the Grease Hammer and Grease Shark. It’s like my final greasy master piece… haha! Anyways, the shape is not much different but slightly improved for greater foot space and function. The new shape paired with improved rocker and concave makes for one of the most comfortable boards I’ve stood on in a while. I’ve felt super locked in and stable during all slides. And let’s be real… the graphic is pretty bangin. Hope you’re feelin it as much as I am!”
