A unique longboard has been launched via Kickstarter this week in the form of the Lucid, offering a handcrafted high-performance board with strength and a distinctive style with no foam or wood used in its construction. Constructed using aircraft grade materials and a unique composite deck skeleton designed and perfected over five years of development and testing. The Lucid Longboard as this month launched via Kickstarter and is now available to back with earlybird pledges available from $190 for the Lucid SOULo deck.
“Our custom designed aircraft grade aluminum drop down brackets lower the board and your center of gravity. The lowered board makes pumping that much easier. You will not want to switch back to a standard height board. The drop down brackets also create a 14º + wedge, meaning it adds an angle to the trucks making the board want to turn faster and become more responsive. The combination of a lowered ride and a higher angle truck creates a perfect blend of responsiveness to turns and stability. “
“The SOULo board by Lucid is a multi-concaved deck coming in with a 34″ wheel base. It is dipped to the ground with custom drop down brackets. The SouLo’s U.I.H.T (Ultra Impact High Thermal) rail system adds edge durability and added strength wrapping around the heart of our board, the Lucid Core. Our high modulus composite skin has been tested and perfected to take the abuse and give a responsive ride. Yes, we included a permanently bonded clear deck grip! To top it off, a Lucid Core allows light to shine through adding a luminous glow that’s bound to catch attention. “
