TRAMPA's CARVE DECKS have been created to simulate the carving sensations that are enjoyed when Surfing, Snowboarding or Wakeboarding. The Carve Deck is available as SOLID or the amazing lightweight HOLYPRO & is designed to fit to any of the Mini Spring Trucks in the TRAMPA range. The Carve Deck can be pushed like any conventional Longboard but the deck comes into its own league when turning tightly especially on steep slopes or in particular when assembled in the addition of a Motor Mount & an TRAMPA Electric Motor.
The 35º Carve Deck is cut from the same mould as all other 35º Decks, so the foot stance area of the Deck measures the same as all 35º Decks but Carve Deck has been cut short at the Tips & has been given its very own beautiful slimmer shape resulting in smaller deck in all dimensions. The Carve Deck therefore has to be 'drilled very close to the Crease' raising the deck's ride Height up, resulting in a substantially closer wheel base more suitable for a smaller wheel, whislt adjusting the performance characteristics to be naturally tighter & much faster turning & reducing weight whilst retaining the same if not gaining more performance than the original ATB deck shape... Brilliant!!
The Carve Deck is considerably lighter than the original Mountainboard Deck & of course by altering the mounting positions & by giving loads of space around the Truck for lots of steering range, the special shape of the shorter deck generates a completely different performance characteristic & when coupled up with the correct steering system genuinely Carves likes a beast... AWESOME!
In order for the Carve Deck to perform as its name suggests, the trimmed down 35º Deck needs to be fitted to suitably sized steering system & so we created the MINI SPRING TRUCKS. Mini Spring Trucks are as their name suggests, smaller versions of the original ATB Spring Truck. The original Forged Alloy body of the ATB Hanger has been miniaturised to a more suitable size to compliment the deck size of the Carve Deck, giving us the performance we were hoping for. To retain low weight the smaller Carve Hanger has been complimented with shorter length & narrower thickness 9.525mm Axles which although shorter remain long enough to fit both sizes of TRAMPA Longboard wheels (83 & 90mm Longboard wheels) & also both of the amazing TRAMPA HYPA & TRAMPA SUPERSTAR wheels which brings a whole world of riding options! ATB Spring Trucks are time tested & proven as being the best steering system your money can buy. They sacrifice a little bit of extra weight over a regular Skate or Longboard style Truck but gain huge amounts of performance in return. Spring Trucks are far more robust, far more adjustable & far more tunable to your personal requirements than any alternative.... TRAMPA's Mini Spring Truck range is genuinly Amazing!
EVEN BETTER! Many people are asking, is the STREET CARVE Deck the same as the URBAN CARVE Deck? The answer is YES! - apart from the different wheels! The same Mini Spring Truck is designed to be assembled in 2 different ways so that you can make 2 DECKS IN 1 !!
By turning the Hanger around 180º in the assembly of the Truck, makes all the difference to the finished product. This is because the Axles in the Hanger are fitted 'offset' in the Hanger & not as you might imagine in the center of the Hanger, so this means that when the Hanger is turned around 180º in assembly, the axle position changes from 'Front' to the 'Back' or vice versa of the Truck. Turning the hanger around instantly alters the wheel base & ride height of the deck making the setup perfect to fit just about every wheel option that TRAMPA offers.... :-)
When setting up in URBAN Carve we position the axle at the FRONT of the Truck, (Facing Outwards). This is to make the wheel base as long as possible & to lower the ride Height as Low as possible which is suitable for the larger sized HYPA or SUPERSTAR Wheels, allowing for loads of amazing kinds of rides by changing between tyre options such as 125mm Gummies, 6.5 Inch Urban Treads or 7 Inch Slicks (AWESOME).
When setting up in STREET Carve we position the axle at the REAR of the Truck (Facing Inwards). Positioning the Axle at the rear of the truck substantially shortens the wheel base whilst raising the ride height & is therefore suitable for smaller sized (83 or 90mm) Stickies Longboard wheels.
TRAMPA now offers a complete range of 83 & 90mm Longboard Wheel options that have all been made from the absolute best Super High Rebound - Top Quality Premium Urethane. TRAMPA's Longboard wheels use a Center-set bearing position, can be fitted to TRAMPA Slave Gears for Longboards & are colour coded to show the Urethane Hardness performance
BLUE = 74a Super-soft Urethane
BLACK = 76a Soft Urethane
WHITE = 78a Regular Urethane
RED = 81a Hard Urethane
So changing the Axle position instantly changes the wheel base measurement, BUT does not change any the special adjustment characteristics or amazing performance of the Mini Spring Truck in anyway. The Mini Spring Trucks have 2 Spring positions. Fixing them on the inside position will allow for easy steering allowing for very tight carving turns whilst fixing them into the outside position will stiffen the steering considerably (this can further be stiffened by adding ) allowing you to hit top speeds that you have only ever dreamed of before!
The entire Mini Spring Truck range is beautifully constructed from the finest materials, using the latest high tech machinery, guaranteeing the highest quality possible is available in the complete INFINITY (Solid Steel Axles) VERTIGO (Hollow Steel Axle with CNC) & ULTIMATE (Titanium Axles with CNC) purchase options.
Adding a TRAMPA Motor, a TRAMPA 12s Battery box & the new TRAMPA VESC 6 to the CARVE DECK will quite simply transform your life! Un-believable performance with up to 50kmph of Top speed & potential range of up to 70 Kilometers (depends on batteries & Box used) can easily be achieved. So far in our extensive tests (Nottingham is a very hilly place claiming the 2nd steepest Street in England), by using the correct gearing we have not found a hill that these beasts cant get up, in fact its not a case of just getting up the hill, its a case of ripping back up the hill, being able to stay on the board under such power becomes a beautiful 'Hill-arious' challenge when heading up hills the first time!!
To describe what its like to ride TRAMPA's awesome range of ELECTRIC CARVE DECKS is almost beyond description.... Its RADICALLY DIFFERENT, its the most BREATHTAKING BOARDING EXPERIENCE you have only ever dreamed off before... It is totally un-comparable to anything that's ever been created & i guess the closest i can get to describing the sensation is 'It feels like the power of a motor cross bike but stood on a Snowboard!!' The entire TRAMPA STREET & URBAN CARVE product range instantly looks & performs completely different to everything.... Heads will turn in drooling envy as you circle around or fly by open mouthed on-lookers!
