Lush Longboards Throttle Short Longboard

The Throttle is one very rad little package form Lush Longboards

If you are looking for a mini cruiser that isn't so mini or a longboard that isn't that so long then the Throttle could be the one for you. 

It's big enough to see you down some decent sized hill and cruise about in style while still being small and light enough to be convenient to carry about. 

All in all a very fun deck with lots of scope for all shapes , sizes and type of skater. 

The Throttle  is built up in three spec options:

Lush Longboards Throttle Short Longboard: Precision Complete Spec

The Precision Complete is about as smooth, plush and carvy as a longboard can get, built up with Sabre Forged Precision Mk3 Trucks. These trucks give outstanding board feel, and give the Throttle unmatched stability and agility - not to mentioned strength and good looks. A higher spec or better feeling complete you will not find anywhere! Take it to the hills, take it through town, rip the pumptrack to shreds. This setup is really why its called the Throttle!

Lush Longboards Throttle Short Longboard: Elite Complete Spec

The Elite Throttle is your go-to for an all-round longboard that you can take to the hills for a carve, a slide and maybe more, but is equally comfortable to get you through the city. A great candidate for the quiver-killer title, if such a thing is really possible. Super functional, light and nippy, stable and slidey. Awesome.

Lush Longboards Throttle Short Longboard: Pro Complete Spec

The Throttle Pro comes with TKP Sabre Trucks and smaller nippy wheels. I like to think of this one as the lower speed option - TKPs will feel more agile and surfy when you're cruising along on the flat. This setup really fits the bill for urban commutes that aren't too hilly, you can whip it round corners, up and down curbs and generally play around whilst still being more stable than a smaller cruiser.
Length 34.0" / 86.4cm See similar length boards
Width 9.125" / 23.2cm See similar width boards
Wheelbase 20.5" / 52.1cm See boards with a similar wheelbase
Nose Length 3.25" / 8.3cm
Tail Length 6.0" / 15.2cm
Truck Mounting Topmount
Deck Flex Stiff
Concave Deep Concave
Deck construction Fibreglass, Maple
Profile Kicktail, Rocker

Is the Elite setup worth the extra £40?

For only an extra £40, you can upgrade the "Pro" setup to the "Elite" Level build.

The Elite setup is a solid 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 trucks are a huge part of any longboard or cruiser setup - and extra spend on the Elite takes you to a pair of Sabre Standard Longboard Trucks.

These trucks make a HUGE difference to how your board will skate - you'll be able to turn harder and carve deeper, whilst being more stable. That's the magic of a proper longboard truck!

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 £90, you get a wheel upgarde to a set of super fast Cult Invader 66mm Longboard Wheels White, adding even more roll speed. Bearings are the same 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

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 quality set-up

This board rides so smoothly and it’s the perfect size for me. I just wanted something to get me from A-B and go for rides around parks and by the beach and it’s perfect for that!! You can tell it’s a top quality board. Couldn’t recommend it more.

Pretty Awesome

Like almost every review on this site I’m an older guy getting back into boarding with my kids. I knew I didn’t want a standard rattling skatepark skateboard but really wasn’t sure where that lead me. In the end I did t take the advice of the guy in the shop and instead went for this which is a few inches longer than they advised. I am very glad I did. It’s a ton more money than I planned spending but it’s also a heck of a board and I have been blasting the skatepark and pump track every spare minute since I got it. Tables have turned where I’m dragging the kids to the skatepark rather than them me.
