Taking Loaded Boards fantastic performance to another level, the Icarus is lean, mean and ready to have fun on!
Loaded pioneered the flexible drop-thru board with the Dervish in 2007 and the Tan Tien in 2010. Since then they returned to their carving roots using many of the things learned from free-ride boards, downhill boards, and even snowboards, the Icarus is the final product. It combines wheel flares, cork, a balanced flex pattern and novel manufacturing methods, creating a soulful carving experience.
The Icarus features:
Functional Design -Drop-through truck mounting for stability and easier pushing, cambered profile and variable edge concave create a lively and precise riding experience and cut-outs and flared wheel wells to maximize clearance for big wheels and allow deep carves and tight turns. Add in minimal nose/tail kicks help navigate city streets and open the door for a little freestyle
Strong, Light and Damp - Snowboard-inspired composite construction combines vertically laminated bamboo and fiberglass for a durable, lightweight and energetic ride, while the cork bottom layer provides vibration damping
High-performance Flex - Bamboo and fiberglass provide lively and energetic flex perfect for hard carving and pumping. Flex 1 is ideal for heavier riders or aggressive tricksters seeking more stiffness and stability, while flex 2 is the best choice for lighter riders or those looking for a more responsive board
