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 Mata Hari Dancing Longboard

FUN THINGS COME IN SMALL(ER) PACKAGES.

Continuing the legacy of Loaded dancers, the Mata Hari embraces a progressive and rapidly evolving new era of longboard dancing and freestyle. Compact dimensions, lightweight construction, poppy kicktails, and a range of wheelbase options make the Mata Hari our most technically adept board for those who live to explore and challenge what is possible on a dancing skateboard.

VERSATILE VARIATIONS – The Mata Hari includes three wheelbase options for a range of performance characteristics.

Outer: (29.25”): Ideal for dancing. Increased stability and space for footwork. Yields a slightly softer (but subtle) effective flex from the deck for cruising and carving comfort. Allows the rider to progressively shorten the wheelbase to maintain leverage at the kicktails as they wear.

Middle: (28.25”): Ideal for a blend of freestyle and dancing.

Inner: (27.25”): Ideal for freestyle. Increased agility, greater kicktail leverage, quicker pop, and reduced swingweight for more technical, aggressive freestyle riding. Yields a slightly firmer effective flex from the deck for enhanced control and resilience under heavy landings.

FUNCTIONAL DESIGN – Compact, symmetrical shape with mild rocker and concave provide a comfortable and highly versatile platform for longboard dancing and freestyle trickery. Aggressive, street-inspired kicks generate powerful pop and help protect the rails and top surface of the deck when the board lands upside down.

STRONG, LIGHT, AND POPPY – Dual vertically laminated bamboo cores are sandwiched between layers of triaxial fiberglass, epoxy resin, and bamboo veneers to create a light, strong, and poppy platform for freestyle and dancing manoeuvres. CNC-milled wheel wells allow for loose trucks and reduce the chance of wheelbite.

GRAPHICS – Hearkening back to an era of significant progress in music and dance, we’ve opted for an Art Deco influenced design to inspire you to get your swing on. The griptape design echoes the Art Deco bottom graphic and ensures traction where needed while facilitating spins and pivots on top of the laser-etched top logo.

We are setting these rad planks up in both Pro and Elite spec.

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!

//vandemlongboardshop.co.uk/cdn/shop/products/Sabre-Built-In-Labyrinth-Bearings-2.jpg?v=1679414662

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!

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 £55, you get a wheel upgarde to a set of super fast Cult Nova 60mm Longboard Wheels White, adding even more roll speed. Bearings are the same as the Elite build, but with a set of Sabre Forged Precision Mk3s.

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

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!

Rider weightBushing Hardness

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!

Fantastic Mata Hari from the boys at Vandem!

Have been keeping a keen eye on when the Mata Hari arrived in stock at Vandem - would not want to purchase this from anywhere else! This is my fourth complete from Vandem - and as usual service was prompt and board well packaged. Love the board - completes my quiver and keen to get more into freestyle - first few rides out have been great! The elite set up worth the extra - just hope the rubbish British weather improves soon. Thanks to Adam and the team at Vandem - excellent as always.

Mata Hari Elite Complete

The guys at Vandem were very helpful with some product advice and delivery was extremely swift. I went for the Elite Complete spec and I'm extremely happy with the setup. The deck itself is very lightweight and responsive and for me the flex is just about right in the middle wheelbase option and the pop is great. I'm about 69 kg and 5' 10". I also tried the longer wheelbase option and while I prefer the slight increase in swing weight and usable dancing area the middle option is my preferred choice. The Elite ships with Cult Chronicle freeride wheels and these are a superb ride, gripping when I need them too and easy to ease into a slide. The Sabre Trucks built in race bearings are a real dream to ride, very smooth and quiet with no play in the wheels on the axle. Perhaps the only downside of the setup for me is that the trucks ship with 90a bushings which were a little hard for a rider of my weight, but this was easily sorted with some replacement Sabre bushings and the trucks now ride really well and are lightweight and strong. I would definitely recommend the Mata Hari for riders looking to get into longboard dance and freestyle, very versatile deck and the service from the guys at Vandem Longboard Shop was great!
