Longboard Skate LOADED Icarus 38.4″

Loaded pioneered the flex drop thru in 2007 with the Dervish and in 2010 with the Tan Tien.

They’ve gone back to their carving roots using what they’ve learned over the past few years on their freeride, downhill and snowboards.

Combining wheel flares, cork, a balanced flex pattern and new construction techniques, the Longboard Skate LOADED Icarus 38.4″ is a new stepping stone in the soul carving experience.

Powerful Flex – Vertically laminated bamboo and fiberglass construction are paired with a cambered profile, a variable concave for an engaging and lively ride. The cork lining reduces vibrations without compromising reactivity.

Easy to use – the drop thru brings the board closer to the ground, making it easier to kick off and keep your balance. Its light weight and compact size make it intuitive and perfect for moving around.

Well Proportioned Curves – Good curves in the right places aid in good rider positioning as well as providing a more responsive skating experience. Wheel flares help clear the big wheels and improve turning and control. With the variable concave a consistent flex pattern is achieved at the same time with a great series of different sensations depending on where the foot is placed.

Practical Tail and Nose – Minimal tail and nose to help navigate city streets and open the door for Freestyle tricks.

The Icarus : because sometimes you have to fly too high

Overall, the Loaded Icarus is a great choice for riders who are looking for a longboard that is specifically designed for carving.

It is smooth, comfortable, and provides a great deal of flex, making it easy to carve even tight turns. The Icarus is also durable and can handle a variety of riding conditions.

Here are some additional details about the Icarus longboard:

Deck: The Icarus deck is made from bamboo and fiberglass, which provides a combination of flex and strength. The bamboo adds to the flex, while the fiberglass provides strength and durability. The deck is also drop-through, which lowers the center of gravity and makes it easier to push and turn.

Trucks: The Icarus comes with Paris V3 trucks, which are known for their smooth turning and stability. The trucks are 180mm wide and have a 50° degree baseplate. This combination of width and degree makes the Icarus stable at high speeds and easy to turn at low speeds.

Wheels: The Icarus comes with Orangatang Kegel wheels, which are 80mm in diameter and 80a in durometer. These wheels are a good all-around choice for carving and freeride. They provide good grip for carving and are easy to slide.

Bearings: The Icarus comes with Loaded Jehu V2 bearings, which are high quality and provide smooth, consistent rolling.

Here are some of the pros and cons of the Loaded Icarus longboard:

Pros:

Excellent for carving
Smooth, comfortable ride
Balanced flex pattern
Wheel flares and cork inserts add to the flex
Durable construction
Good for riders of all sizes and skill levels

Cons:

Loaded Boards Loaded Longboards offers different types of High Performance Skateboards to maximize your ride

Compared to traditional skateboards, longboard have several subtleties in their design and setups. These small details can drastically change the riding experience from one board to another. With this helpful guide, Loaded is happy to help boil down your options into easily digestible categories. We hope to give you the knowledge you need to choose your next ride and get you on board.

HYBRID BOARDS

These kind of  longboards combine elements of traditional skateboards and modern longboard design and construction. Hybrid boards provide the user with the ability to snap ollies or do other street-skating tricks. They also provide a longer wheelbase to make commuting and standing on board more comfortable. For those looking for something small and easy to carry, check out the Loaded Poke. If you want a more robust yet modern take on the traditional skateboard, check out the board page for the Kanthaka. For a truly unique hybrid experience using old-school designs combined with moderate flex, be sure to look into the Loaded Overland.

DANCING BOARDS

Dancing longboards feature a spacious standing platform and longer length to give the rider maximum space for  doing fancy foot work maneuvers. Though most larger sized longboards can feel heavy and cumbersome, the Loaded Bhangra and Loaded Tarab are designed to give you an agile ride and unique riding experience thanks to their different flex patterns. Be sure to check out their board pages to make sure you are getting a dancing board that fits your preferences.

CARVING BOARDS

Carving boards are designed with flex in mind. Using unique concaves and outline shapes, these boards offer the rider a high performance ride. This characteristic makes every trip to the store or around your neighborhood an adventure. The Loaded lineup offers two different types of carving boards. Top-Mounted carving boards offer a blend of traditional longboards and high performance flex patterns usually found in snowboards. A top mounted carving board provides the user with responsive turning and a spacious standing platform to move around on. If this sounds like your style, then check out the board pages for Loaded Vanguard and Fattail for more details on which one fits your needs.
Drop-Thru Carving boards are designed to give the user the most comfortable and efficient ride for pushing and commuting. Sharing many similarities in performance to the top-mounted carving boards, drop-thru carving boards differ by being significantly lower to the ground. This will allow to reduce ride height and fatigue from pushing. Loaded Icarus, Dervish Sama and Tan Tien all feature drop-thru mounting. Find out what makes each one unique by visiting their board pages.

DOWNHILL / FREERIDE BOARDS

The Downhill/Freeride Boards are designed to be stable and safe at high speeds. Compared to the rest of the Loaded lineup, these boards focus on being stiff and keeping the user glued to the top of the board. All of the boards are top mounted for ideal leverage and control, but also feature a rockered platform to keep you slightly lower to the ground and craddled. Wheel flares to fit larger wheels and give you a reference point for your feet, and W concave that provides a lump running through the center of the board to aid in slide control. Our Tesseract family, which include the Cantellated and Truncated versions, as well as the Loaded Chubby Unicorn BloodSlayer are the ideal boards for experimenting with going fast and busting out big slides. You can find which one best suits your style by visiting their board pages.

CONCLUSION

We hope these categories will help you make your decision in which board to add to your quiver or which board to start you longboarding adventure with. If you want to find out more information on each specific board, visit the board page to grab the specs and a closer look at what makes it unique. Though we like to design our boards to excel in a certain style of riding, many of them can cross over into other styles, expanding your versatility and riding experience. The Blood Slayer is stiff for downhill, but its spacious platform makes for a fun dancing experience. The Bhangra is long and flexible, but the stiffer flexes make for a fun sliding experience. Don’t feel confined to ride a certain way. Explore what styles you like the most and you might just find yourself having more fun than you originally intended.
