Shaun White Skateboard Viking
Skateboard Shaun White Viking is a great skate set for all riders who demand high quality. Seven-layered board made of Canadian maple glued with epoxy resin has a high resistance, flexibility and durability. The skateboard is as wide at the front as in the rear (Double KickTail - double tail), making it easier to perform tricks, because the rider does not need to pay attention to where the board has beginning or the so called nose. Skateboard Shaun White Viking diverts the accumulated energy recovered by landing away from the sensitive area, is light, solid and with quality chassis that is heat-treated, can withstand any hard impacts. The wheels are perfectly adhesive to any surface and in combination with chrome ABEC 7 bearings with precision grooving ensure excellent performance even at the most extreme rides. In addition, the skate was designed and developed in cooperation with Shaun White – the world champion in skateboarding and double Olympic champion in snowboarding. He and his team carefully tested it to suit both beginners and demanding riders. Skateboard Shaun White Viking is ideal for jumping on U ramp, riding at the skate park or a free ride. It is suitable for beginners, but advanced riders who perform complex tricks appreciate it as well.

Shaun White Skateboard Viking - Product parameters
The length of the board is basically the length of the entire item. The longer the board, the more space there is. On the other hand, shorter boards are easier to carry around. The length is usually given in inches. 1 inch = 2.54 cm.
Boards are usually made of wood. The highest quality you can get is Canadian maple. Other types of wood present more affordable options.
The cheapest option are boards made of PVC or other plastic material. Aside from price, their advantage lies also in high durability. However, we recommend them mainly for beginners, only occasional riders and children. They are also not really suitable for stunts. The exception are penny boards, where the majority of products is made of plastic.
By observing the weight limit of the product, you significantly increase its service life and prevent it from wearing down prematurely. It is not recommended to exceed this limit.
The ABEC-1 through ABEC-9 scale denotes the presision of the manufacture process. The higher the number, the more precisely the bearings are made (smaller margin). Other scales are used mainly on children's skates.
The thickness of the board goes hand in hand with the number of layers and material used. The thicker the board, the more durable it is. However, it's also heavier.
To beginners, we recommend using boards of average thickness, starting with a good compromise between weight and durability.
These days, most skateboard, penny board and longboard wheels are usually made of the same material - polyurethane (PU) with various admixtures. It's because these wheels have good riding qualities and are resistant to damage. Wheels made of PVC are recommended mainly for children. Their advantage is a low price.
Wheel hardness between 76A and 90A is ideal for casual skating.
Wheel hardness over 90A is better suitable for speed and race skating.
Standard board width ranges between 17.5 cm (7") and 21 cm (8.25"). However, there are both wider and narrower models. Generally speaking, narrower boards under 20.1 cm (8") are better for beginners or riders that are not that tall. Wider boards are more suitable for advanced and taller riders.
