Loaded Tan Tien Topo

The Loaded Tan Tien pretty much revolutionised longboarding when it appeared a few years back. Small, light, flexy and nimble, it features small kicktails to allow a plethora of flips and dancing tricks.

The Tan Tien is a great alternative to a cruiser, being small enough to lug around when you're not skating it, but not so small that there's not enough to stand on - which we find to be a common problem from a lot of our customers when it comes to a mini longboard like this.

The deck itself using a combination of bamboo and fibreglass, with extra glass reinforcement at the nose and tail to prevent too much damage. It's drop-through, and it'll fit pretty much any skate truck out there.

The glass and bamboo construction, pressed into the cambered "moustache" profile that you can see in the pictures, gives the board a springy, responsive flex. The Tan Tien is a great little board for pumping in and out of turns, with a lot of energy return.

You can choose your flex to suit your weight and riding style. If you're not sure which flex is best for you - get in touch and we'll help you make the right choice!

Is the Elite setup worth the extra £45?

For only an extra £45, 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 £45 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!
