The Loaded Icarus: The carving board, reimagined – Available July 6th
The Icarus is a milestone in Loaded’s exploration of the soulful carving experience.
In 2007 we pioneered the flexible drop-through board with the Dervish, and then expanded on it with the Tan Tien in 2012. We spent the past few years developing a variety of freeride boards, downhill boards, and our snowboard. Returning our design focus to our carving roots, we’ve appropriated much of what we learned (and our love for lasagna) to produce the highest performing carving board we’ve ever built.
Shapely Curves—The right curves in all the right places enhance rider ergonomics while contributing to a responsive and high-performance ride. Wheel well flares accommodate big wheels and improve turning leverage and control. Variable concave yields a consistent flex pattern while providing a variety of riding experiences based on foot placement.
Powerful Flex—Vertically laminated bamboo and fiberglass construction pair with a cambered profile and variable concave for a lively and engaging ride. A cork bottom helps dampen out vibrations without compromising the liveliness.
User Friendly—Drop-through truck mounting positions the deck lower to the ground for easier pushing and enhanced stability. Light weight and compact size make the Icarus intuitive and commuter friendly.
Practical Kicks—Minimal nose and tail kicks help navigate city streets and open the door for freestyle trickery.
The Icarus: Because sometimes you need to fly too high.
