Carver Skateboards: Ride Review – 31.25″ Knox Quill

Carver Skateboards: Ride Review – 31.25″ Knox Quill


The Knox Quill surfskate is 31 1/4 inches long, by 9 7/8 wide, with a 17 1/2 inch wheelbase. After a decade of collaboration, Surf Hall
of Famer and rail master Taylor Knox has refined his Carver pro model to perfection over the years. Featuring a wide spooned nose and full kick tail for increased heel-to-toe energy transfer, this is the board for power surfing all day
long. This model comes with one of two Carver surfskate truck sets; the dual-axis C7 truck for fluid surfing motion and a wider range of adjustability,
or the reverse kingpin CX truck set for snappy rail-to-rail carving and lighter weight. The Knox Quill comes with our 69mm Roundhouse Concave wheel, hand poured in our custom 78a formula, and assembled with Carver’s Built-In ABEC
7 precision speed bearings. This wheel has incredible grip, so you can
lean deep into your carves with complete confidence. Wheelbase is the distance between the trucks,
and it determines how easy it is to initiate a pump, versus how fast you can pump for speed. A longer wheelbase needs more room to pump
but has a faster top speed, and flows with wider, more drawn out turns. A shorter wheelbase is easier to pump in a
smaller space with great control, and is snappier with its tighter turning radius. With a 17 1/2 inch wheelbase, the Quill has
the right combination of width and length for powerful rail-to-rail surfing, and fun
all-around cruising. To watch more videos, get tech info, or shop
