The Loaded Boards Vanguard Flex 1 Complete Longboard is the one that started it all. The symmetrical shape and stance for a balanced center of gravity to increase the ability to weight the deck through turns for better control and energy generation. The sidecuts allow for decreased torsional stiffness between the feet to exploit the boar's torsional energy to allow for greater nuances in the turning radius. The Vanguard was designed and intended for speeds under 25mph due to its flex characteristics. A great board for carving this bamboo core, pressed into a concave and convex cambers for liveliness, responsiveness and high energy potential. The Flex 1 is a stiffer flex giving it slightly more control at higher speeds and hard pounding tricks. Boards tend to break in and become slightly flexier over time increasing control and tighter turn radius at slower speeds.
