Getting a board was a long time coming for me. The website tells you everything you need to know, even if you're a newbie! The delivery was faster than expected, but Rich still kept me updated at every step of the way. The personal note in the box was just the cherry on the top.
Excellent quality with exceptional service! Thank you, guys!

Loaded Basalt Tesseract Freeride Longboard

The latest incarnation of the Loaded Tesseract is an updated version of the older double kick Tesseract. With new materials, the Basalt Tesseract is the ultimate do-everything longboard. It'll slide, dance, freeride, cruise, even go fast if you have the need...

 

From Loaded:

"GET LIT WITH LAVA: Building on our experience manufacturing the Tarab, we've updated the Basalt Tesseract with a high-performance, eco-conscious basalt fabric construction for a lighter, damper, and more freestyle-friendly board. 4 color options to match your road rash.

Stash the quiver, clear your mind, and let the Basalt Tesseract be your versatile companion in the quest for four-wheeled illumination. The Basalt Tesseract integrates rocker, wheel well flares, W concave, and multiple wheelbase options into a lightweight package designed for hilly descents, snappy slides, lofty ollies, techy manual combos, and cross-steps galore.

Functional Design "” Symmetrical shape and kicktails encourage switch riding and a multitude of tricks and slides. Multiple wheelbase options allow you to fine tune your setup based on riding style and truck geometry. Updated semi-aggressive griptape: Grippy but not evil.

Curvaceous Confidence "” Rocker cradles your feet for locked-in slides. Tall, wide W concave mellows out near the trucks for comfort while providing strong lateral support for carving and sliding. Wheel well flares increase wheel clearance and create ergonomic reference points for your feet.

Light and Durable "” Dual bamboo cores are sandwiched between layers of basalt fabric to create a strong and lightweight structure with the perfect balance of flex and pop for a more dynamic and forgiving ride. A bottom layer of cork provides vibration damping and helps prevent abrasive damage from spreading."

Both completes are finished off Loaded's own logo griptape pattern.

We can also do custom completes with whatever wheels and trucks you want - get in touch if you want something special!

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 Chronicle 65mm Longboard Wheels White (Stoneground), 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 Chronicle over the Pro build's Cult Nova. Apart from the obvious size difference, the Cult Chronicle 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!

Useful Extra Info

Customise your ride!

We can change the truck bushings on this board to suit your weight and riding style!

This way your board will come set up perfectly for you, straight out of the box.

Just refer to the table below and make your choice as you add to cart!

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!

All around Awesome Service and Board!

So pleased with my new longboard! As a very new rider, the board has great stability and turns lovely! The graphic is also beautiful - I am in love. Both me and my boyfriend have brought boards from Vandem over the last few months and are both over the moon with not only the boards, but also the customer service. They have answered all our questions as novices so promptly and delivery has been amazing!
