Carver Skateboards: Ride Review – 33″ Haedron No. 6

Carver Skateboards: Ride Review – 33″ Haedron No. 6


The Haedron No. 6 surfskate is 33 inches long,
by 9 7/8 wide, with a 18 1/2 inch wheelbase. Featuring a Black Fumed Oak eco-veneer that
also helps preserve the environment, the No. 6 is the mid-length board in the Haedron series. The added length provides a bit more stability
for pushing and faster runs while still being easy to pump, splitting the difference between
long and short for a very versatile setup. 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 No. 6 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 an 18 1/2 inch wheelbase, the No. 6 is
a versatile mid-length ripper, and with bit extra wheelbase you get slightly more drawn
out carves that can still pump easily in tighter sections. To watch more videos, get tech info, or shop
