Hackbrett Krokodil Freeride Longboard

A symmetrical twin brother to Hackbrett's "Das Schnelle", this turns the directional downhill machine into an ultra reactive freerider.

The Krokodil, like Das Schnelle, is state of the art shaping with every feature imaginable. Rocker, drop, wheel flares, pockets, toewrapper concave, gas pedals, wheel wells, flushcuts and three core variations. The transition between features is organic and ergonomic.

This deck is really responsive, thanks to the deep concave and relatively short wheelbase. that same concave gives a ton of grip for your feet, and you will always be able to feel where you are standing on the deck. Built for high speeds, with a focus on the most radical shredding.

  • Features: Flushcuts, Wheel wells, gas pedal, Pockets
  • Weight category: 40-85kg

We're building these into three complete options but can also do custom completes with whatever wheels and trucks you want - get in touch if you want something special!

We have a longstanding relationship with Hack - click here to read more about what exactly makes these boards so special.

Hackbrett Krokodil Freeride Longboard: Precision Complete Spec

Well well... I see you are one with fine taste. The Hackbrett Krokodil Precision complete is a longboard like few others. This level of design, rider input, engineering and love put into each and every single component, you just don't see that. This isn't a factory build by any stretch of the imagination. This is the creme de la creme, the real deal. This thing will hug your feet as you take your first steps into the world of sliding, and even while you cruise to the spot. It'll still be hugging them if you want to take it 100kmh down your favourite mountain road. Have I done it? Yes. Would I recommend it?...Put a helmet on.

Hackbrett Krokodil Freeride Longboard: Elite Complete Spec

The Elite complete is a premium cruising, carving and speedy setup! It'll roll fast and forever and grip like nothing else in corners. A real pleasure to take down hill fast but equally comfortable on the bike path, chewing up the miles on its comfy platform, carving to its (and your) hearts content. Gripped with extra coarse griptape for full control whether its the last corner in the race or dodging that small dog that just appeared out the hedge.

Hackbrett Krokodil Freeride Longboard: Pro Complete Spec

The Krokodil Pro comes in slightly cheaper than the Elite version and has more of a focus on smooth and juicy slides than pure speed. That's not to say it won't roll along at a good pace, but the Emperor wheels are more forgiving when it comes to going sideways as opposed to full steam ahead. A great board for a great price, gripped with extra coarse tape for full control in all situations.

Is the Elite setup worth the extra £15?

For only an extra £15, you can upgrade the "Pro" setup to the "Elite" Level build.

The Elite setup is a pretty heavy wheel and bearing upgrade over the Pro.

You get Sabre Built-In Labyrinth Bearings - fully shielded, easy to clean, with built in bearing spacers. They roll faster and last longer than the Pro level metal shielded ABEC5 bearings.

The Elite complete also includes Cult Cultron 74mm Longboard Wheels White, poured from a higher grade urethane. Premium urethane rolls fater, lasts longer, and generally injects a whole new level of life into the board - once you've skated decent wheels, you won't want anything else!

Less obvious is the wheel upgrade. Your extra £15 gets you a set of Cult Cultron over the Pro build's Cult Emperor. Apart from the obvious size difference, the Cult Cultron are poured from a higher grade of urethane - an invisible difference that you will immediately notice as soon as you push the board off.

Just like the bearings, the wheel upgrade makes your board roll faster and last longer - what's not to like??

If you look at the SRP difference of these components and add them together you'll see that the upgrade from Pro to Elite represents serious value - trust us, it's well worth it.

Coupled with this, we've noticed that almost everyone who makes it into our shop ends up with an Elite setup - the value is clear once you have the board in your hands!

How about the Precision build?

If you're ready to skate the best setup out there the best of the best, step it up to the Precison Build!

For an extra £115, you get the same wheels and bearings as the Elite build, but with a set of Sabre Trucks Forged Precisions.

Given that a set of these trucks would normally set you back £180, that's a serious value for a serious setup!

Useful Extra Info

Skateboard Bushings

Some other things to consider...

  • If in doubt - go softer! Turnier boards are easier to balance on, and a lot more fun to skate.
  • If you are "between hardnesses," we would recommend the softer option. So for example, for a 73kg rider, "Soft" rather than "Stock Setup" might be a better choice. Get in touch if you're not sure!
  • if you want a very turny board - say for a dancing longboard - then it's worth going one stop softer than you otherwise would do. Watch out for wheelbite though!
  • Likewise, if you want a board for downhill speed, then go up a step harder than the weight table suggests.
  • You do have a bit of adjustment in the truck's kingpin nut, but we would suggest that if you have more than two threads showing then it's time to go to a harder bushing.
  • If you already have a board (or some trucks!) and you would like to change your bushings to suit your weight, check out our truck/bushing compatability chart!
