All new for 2023, the Top Cat is a rockered, tapered, top mounted drop-deck that destroys any terrain you throw at it. The board is slightly wider at the front than it is at the back to give you lots of leverage over the front truck. The dropped platform provides a snug pocket for your feet at the ends of the board, and combined with the aggressive rocker, this board is low to the ground which makes it stable and easy to push long distances. The board is going to touch the ground enough to scrape, and because of the clever design of the board and chamfered edges, the scraping will have zero effect on the strength & longevity of the board. The concave is very mellow and curves up towards the chamfered edges very gradually. Your feet will have a nice firm contact with the board, leaving you with a secure feeling and lots of confidence when riding. You get classic wheelbite cut-outs that historically appear on drop deck style boards, which provide you with the wheel clearance you need to run anything 72mm & under. The wheel cutouts also give the board a pleasing shape, curving outwards from the mounting area and joining up harmoniously with the standing platform to complete the shape of the board. The truck mounting area at the nose and tail do not have any drop through mounting options; this board is purely top mount for added control and precision, also increasing the grip you get out of your wheels. The extreme shape of the board is likely to have a little more of a twist than other models, but when you’re on the board, the flex ensures a straight ride.
