Designed to rally big mountain terrain and conquer World Cup podiums, the Switchblade has proven itself equally adept at getting you to the grocery store and ripping down your local hill safely. The mellow drops, long wheelbase and low ride height combine to offer a drifty, confidence-inspiring feel perfect for riders looking to up their freeride game. The Switchblade 40 is the longer version, offering a more stable ride and slightly easier slide initiation, as well as being a bit more comfortable for taller riders.

100% Canadian Maple

Canadian Maple is a strong and proven material used in the world’s best skateboards. We source only the finest veneers found in Eastern Canada.

DROP DOWN

A lowered foot platform provides the most stable ride and gives your feet pockets to lock into while skating. These boards are also easier for pushing and foot-breaking.

DROP THROUGH

Drop through decks are lower to the ground and enjoy increase stability without sacrificing maneuverability.

Made in Canada

Ohhh Canada Eh!

SYMMETRICAL

Go both ways with symmetrical board design. Generally found in freeride and downhill decks, these boards allow the rider to skate both regular and switch without changing up their stance.

Length: 40

The Switchblade is a double dropped freeride shape that is designed to give you a low, comfortable platform for exploring big hills as well as getting around town as quickly as possible. Deep concave and foot pockets at the drops give you the reference points you need to explore the limits of your freeriding, and the 9 ply maple construction keeps the board stiff and under control. The 40 is the larger of the two sizes we offer, measuring 40" long by 10" wide and offers a driftier and more stable ride. This board comes set up with 180mm Gen 6 Grizzly trucks and 70mm 80a Mini Zombie Hawgs wheels for premium freeride capabilities straight out of the box.

Flex Rating

So, what’s flex and why is it important to a skateboard? In skate-nerd terms, flex is the amount of displacement a deck sees when a specific amount of force is applied to it. Check out our formula to the left! There are a few factors that affect flex, like deck thickness, wheelbase, and the amount of force on a deck. We built a machine and put our entire lineup to the test by applying the exact same amount of force to all our boards and measured the displacement we saw in each. This gives a totally scientific and accurate flex range across our entire line! It’s important to understand flex when choosing a board. Here are some basics: Downhill/freeride skateboards will have less flex because you need a stiff platform to stand on when you’re bombing or gripping a corner at speed. Carving skateboards will have more flex, giving you the ability to sink into your turns and pump or carve with ease. Most cruisers, dance and ATV boards will have less flex for control when doing tricks but just enough to be forgiving when pushing around town. We’ve engineered our boards with the best flex for each style of riding but remember, flex is subjective so get out a see what you like the most!

Locked in; snowboarders switch to the switchblade!

Perfect foot grooves for a double drop setup that feels uncanny. Minimum height and maximum stability make speedy descents and long straight edge swaps. Great for a beginner coming off the mountain!

What a ROCKET

This board has a beautiful design and it came ready to shred right out of the box. Couldn’t complain at all.

Perfect for freeriding

I really wanted to learn how to freeride and blast big check slides so understandably so I got this beast I had done some research and supposedly this board was really easy to slide so I picked it up and this board blew me away it was my first time sliding am actual longboard I had a bit of experience sliding skateboards and my landyachts dinghy but I was new to longboard sliding and after a day of practice I was able to start breaking traction of all four wheels the board itself is very easy to slide and the shape and concave makes things super comfortable and helps you keep locked in while sliding its also a perfect board for commuting its extremely low to the ground and makes it easy to push and get around only downside to this board is that sometimes the graphic can get scraped and scuffed easily when on uneven ground other than that I don't see anything to complain about no wheel bite and it makes for an absurdly comfy ride
