Loaded Icarus Deck

Description

The Icarus - Because Sometimes You Need To Fly Too High.

Loaded Longboards are making a triumphant return to their carving roots with the all new Icarus deck. Combining big wheel flares, a balanced flex pattern and new manufacturing methods the Icarus is creating a new milestone in Loaded's quest for a soulful carving experience.


According to Greek mythology, Icarus was the son of a master craftsman, Daedalus, who built labyrinths for the King to imprison the Minotaur. Daedalus also became imprisoned by the King and to escape, he built wings using wax and feathers so he and Icarus could fly to freedom. Only Icarus didn't heed his fathers warning to not fly too close to the waves or too close to the sun and captivated by the thrill of flight he soared too high until the heat from the sun melted the wax in his wings causing him to fall into the sea.

The moral of the story? Get better wings!

Based around the popular shapes of the Dervish and Tan Tien decks, the Icarus strikes a balance between stability and manoeuvrability by combining straight rails along the standing platform for a stable and firm ride with full cut-outs at the tips to allow deep turns without the wheelbite.

User Friendly - Drop-through truck mounting positions the deck lower to the ground for easier, more efficient pushing and enhanced stability. Light weight and compact size make the Icarus intuitive and commuter friendly.

Shapely Curves - The right curves in the right places enhance rider ergonomics while contributing to a responsive and high performance ride. Wheel well flares accommodate big wheel and improve turning leverage and control. Variable concave yields a consistent flex pattern while providing a variety of riding experiences based on foot placement.

Practical Kicks - Minimal nose and tail kicks help navigate city streets and open the door for freestyle trickery.
