find more information in our shop.
SICK of WINTER LONGBOARDS are designed, engineered and made in germany. With the goal to make great products made of eco-friendly materials, the combination of a 3mm renewable Bamboo core, local maple and beech veneer as well as certified bio-resin with german 3D molding technology makes our board a durable high performance longboard with little adverse impacts on the environment.
In contrast to the majority of longboards on the market, which mostly use polluting and toxic materials, our boards exclusively contain certified sustainable materials, such as FSC certified bamboo, PEFC certified local maple and beech as well as non-toxic resin. the local sourcing of most of the wood and the production in Germany furthermore guarantees little CO2 emissions and contributes to saving the environment.
to create a flexible and ergonomic W-concave for a comfortable stance in the middle of the board and flares for performance and a solid stance towards the trucks - the wood is bended and pressed with heat. a 3mm core of flexible and renewable bamboo and 6 layers of maple (flex I) or beech (flex II) give the board a gentle and responsive flex. to achieve those attributes, we’re using special techniques used in furniture-design.
