By altering the number of layers of material that we add into the mould, we are are able to tune the final performance of the TRAMPA decks relevant to the riders weight height & ability. Please use the FLEXOMETER above as a guide to help you choose the right ply board for you. TRAMPA's FLEXOMETER information is to be interpreted as a 'GUIDE ONLY' as there is no fixed rule as to which is the exact right deck for you. The weight, height & ability of the rider will all help determine which is the right sort of deck for you, but of course the most important factor is personal preference as to how the rider wants their deck to feel.... Some riders like it flexi, some like it firm, some like it very very stiff.... It depends on what you are doing on your board, i.e. freestyle, freeride, boarder-cross, altho there is guidance there is no right & no wrong just personal preference but when purchasing a deck from TRAMPA we want to make sure you get it exactly the way you want it! so if your stuck as to which one is the best for you them please drop as a line...
Having a larger sized hub & fitted with up to 7 Inch Pneumatic Tyres, the URBAN CARVE Decks, are in my opinion the answer as to what board you should buy if your wanting a 1 board for all applications... The Pneumatic tyred Urban Carver is the all rounder! It is suitable for the City or Urban environment, it can easily roll over the cracks in the pavement & it bashes over curbs you would normally crash into! It bombs over little stones that regular longboard wheels so often get jammed up on, plus it will take you off road & down dirt tracks, up steep hills & survive in bad weather! More than anything the Urban Carve can be set up to be super loose for the most un-real carving or set Super tight for flat out top speed! The range of riding & the comfort of the URBAN Carve is like the board you have always dreamed of.... It is as far as im concerned the 1 everyone should have!!!
TRAMPA's awesome range of URBAN CARVER Decks are constructed using the finest quality materials we know of. Their performance is quite amazing & totally un-comparable to anything that's ever been created before! The entire TRAMPA Street Carve product range instantly looks & performs radically different to all Longboard.... Heads will turn i drooling jealousy as you carve passed open mouthed on-lookers.
Created to simulate the carving sensations that are commonly enjoyed when Surfing, Snowboarding or Wakeboarding the design of the URBAN Carver Deck is based around the original dimensions of a 35º TRAMPA Mountainboard Deck. The URBAN Carver Deck, like its originator, is available as SOLID or HOLYPRO & uses the same mould for its construction, so this means the 'Creases' are in the same position but the Deck is 're-shaped & drilled close to the Crease', making the resulting Street Carver Deck performance to be naturally stiffer & so by using less materials to create the same stiffness, its considerably lighter than the regular Mountainboard Deck & of course by altering the mounting positions giving enough space for lots of steering range & using its own unique shape generates a completely different performance characteristic to that of its originator...
Amazingly the Hanger in the Carve Truck is reversible...! The Axle is located in an offset position in the hanger, NOT Centrally located, so turning the hanger around during assembly changes all the dimensions, performance & applicational use of the Truck when fitted to the deck... This enables the Carve Truck to be able to assemble & fit to either Street or Urban Carve Decks & so when we assemble the Truck, depending on what we are assembling it for (Street or Urban) will depend on which way around we assemble the hanger. It also means you can purchase an additional set of wheels & convert your Street Carve Deck into Urban Carve Deck (or vice versa) very easily.
The hanger faces forwards (Same as mountainboard) for the URBAN Carve Deck assembly making the overall wheel base longer & the ride height as low as possible to accept the larger sized 7 inch HYPA or SUPERSTAR wheels that lift the deck height back up & by increasing the wheel base gives the extra space to fit the larger wheels at the ends, whilst setting the deck up for the Street Carve we turn the hanger 180º so it faces inwards (Axles to the inside) shortening the wheel base, raising the ride height to a more acceptable position to be able to accommodate the smaller sized 83 & 90mm Longboard wheels.
In order for the Urban Carver Deck to perform as its name suggests, the trimmed down 35º Deck needs to be fitted to a 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 ATB Hanger body has been modified to a more suitable size to take a smaller length 9.525mm Axle which as it so happens to remain long enough to fit both sizes of TRAMPA Longboard wheels (83 & 90mm Longboard wheels) & also both of the 7 inch HYPA & SUPERSTAR wheels! Amazing!
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, plus in our minds far more safer than regular Skate Trucks. Let me explain...
Skate Trucks use a vertically mounted kingpin to hold the Hanger and Baseplate together. They need a mounting angle of roughly 15º to create their steering. 15º is quite a flimsy angle, mounting the kingpin in such a way with not a lot of Urethane to support the assembly will not give a huge amount of control over your steering & 15º is not much of an angle to steer against... Imagine balancing a ruler on on your pencil at school and then tilting it side to side, everything will be a bit wobbly as there is no resistance to keep it in position. So a vertically mounted kingpin (like that of a Longboard truck) will always have its limitations in performance, in particular at high speed when speed wobble can become a major issue... Speed Wobble is not a pleasure to be endured & is something that is most likely to happen to any rider at some stage especially on skate style trucks...
Spring Trucks use a horizontally mounted Kingpin to hold the Baseplate & Hanger together. The kingpin positions completely differently when compared to a Skate Truck. Using a horizontally mounted kingpin means the Spring Trucks need to be mounted at 35º to make the steering happen. The movement between the Baseplate & the Hanger is the steering. The Horizontally mounted Kingpin is mounted in some high quality precision made Nylon Bushings that allow the metal parts to move easily without creating any wear on each other. This easy movement is soon controlled by inserting Spring Retainers into either end of the Springs & then Squeezing the spring assembly into the connecting positions inside the Hanger & Baseplate, which are when assembled now referred to as the Truck!
Pushing Springs into the the truck assembly either side of the horizontally mounted kingpin eliminates the easy movement by pre-loading tension into the Truck assembly. The pre-load tension in the springs can be Adjusted & tuned to your exact personal preferences or tuned on the fly by turning the Spring Adjuster, plus for even more performance the Springs can be positioned in 2 places... Locating the Springs into the inside position makes the steering feel super loose & easy to steer giving the ultimate sensation in fast carvy steering, however lock the springs into the outside position & fitting the TRAMPA DAMPA's into the springs, will make the steering feel super tight & perfect for setting the board up for sliding or achieving the highest speeds possible...
The Springs are locked into position using Marine grade Stainless Steel Countersunk Bolts (for flush fitting) inserting into the threaded Spring Retainers through the underside of the Hanger & with the use of the very special part made by TRAMPA the Marine grade Stainless Steel Spring Adjuster, which Screws through the Top side of the Baseplate pre-compressing the Retainer in the Spring.
The entire Mini Spring Truck range is beautifully constructed from the finest materials, using the latest high tech machinery guaranteeing th 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.
The Urban Carver can be pushed like any conventional Longboard but the deck comes into its own league when turning tightly on steep slope or when built in the addition of an electric motor. The Carving ability of the Street Carve enhances the switch back steering performance of that of a regular Longboard, giving the sensation like that of a surfer or on a huge wave...
The 35° TRAMPA Carve deck is the latest deck in the TRAMPA range. It has been specifically shaped to work with the new Carver range of Truck steering systems. Choosing a low ply flexier deck makes carving on the street a fantastic sensation, whilst choosing a stiffer deck & adding DAMPA's into the Trucks, tightens the steering incredibly, turning the deck one of the fastest, most stable decks on the market!
The 35° TRAMPA Carve deck can be assembled as any of the Carve Deck options in the TRAMPA product range (Street Carve, Urban Carve, Gummies Carve) & is available in 3 different flex rates, 14ply is the most flexible, 16ply is the stiffest. Please use the FLEXOMETER in the TAB ABOVE for guidance as to which is the most suitable ply deck for you or mail this link if you need some extra guidance. The 35° TRAMPA Carve deck is only supplied as Drilled, Edged & Sanded, its Fully Gripped & supplied with a Countersunk Marine Grade Stainless Steel Bolt Kit to fix the Trucks to the Deck!
Regardless of which deck you choose, all TRAMPA Decks are totally Un-Breakable! We offer you a lifetime gaurantee! Our incredible composite material is so strong whilst still flexible, the material will not split, delaminate or break in any way regardless of the environment you use it in. TRAMPA decks are considered the "Poppiest" decks on the market, the performance is un-matched, you will fly higher & have more cushioned landings thanks to the performance of the deck! All TRAMPA deck's are customised to suit the riders weight, ability & personal preference.
The entire CARVE TRUCK Range is without doubt the sweetest most advanced steering system ever to be created! CARVE TRUCK's are also totally amazing! The Hanger is reversible & it can be assembled to make two entirely different Trucks in one! They can be fitted with either the 83 & 90mm Stickies Longboard wheels for STREET CARVE use & for URBAN CARVE they can be assembled to any of the amazing 7 inch HYPA or SUPERSTAR wheels, using Urban Treads, Gummies or any other 7 Inch tyre on the website!
Amazingly the Hanger is reversible... The Axle is positioned offset in the hanger, NOT Centrally located... This means when we assemble the Truck, depending on what we are assembling it for (The Carve Truck will assemble to fit to either Street or Urban Carve Decks) will depend on which way around we assemble the hanger.. The hanger faces forwards (Same as mountainboard) for the URBAN Carve Deck assembly making the overall wheel base longer & the ride height as low as possible to accept the larger sized wheels that lift the deck height back up & by increasing the wheel base gives the extra space to fit the larger wheels at the ends. Setting up the deck for the Street Carve we turn the hanger 180º so it faces inwards (Axles to the inside) shortening the wheel base, raising the ride height to a more acceptable position to be able to accommodate the smaller sized 83 & 90mm Longboard wheels.
The Carve Truck has 'Dual Spring Positions'. Having Dual Spring positions means the rider has even more tune-ability than what they can shake a stick at! The rider can adjust & custom tune their steering range to just about any setting for any kind of terrain or ride type they can imagine.... It is possible to 'move the springs into the inside position', making the steering easy to turn & super loose, making the performance perfect for incredibly sexy CARVY TURNS.... Alternatively if your not in that mood or Carvy turns is not your thing try moving the springs 'into the outside position' & then 'Adding TRAMPA DAMPA's into the springs' before inserting into the truck, thus making the steering as STIFF as you could ever imagine, setting you up perfectly for the fastest of high speed runs when & where ever possible....!
The INFINITY CARVE TRUCK has not been CNC'd for light weight, it is therefore full fat & of course full strength! The CNC Machine has only been used to precision drill the Kingpin Holes to ensure the connection between the Hanger & Baseplate are exact. So as it's name suggests, the INFINITY CARVE TRUCK has been designed to last forever!! The precision milled CNC holes allow the Truck to assemble like a dream - everything fixes together perfectly enabling the INFINITY CARVE TRUCK to provide problem free, precision riding for forever!
TRAMPA's Carve Boards range is the perfect all round deck aimed at Snowboarders, Surfers, Skaters, Longboarders & of course Mountainboarders wanting to cross over to ride the non seasonal Tarmac.... :-)
TRAMPA's 170mm x 45mm - 7 Inch wheels are the primary choice sized wheel for many inventors developing sporting equipment requiring very strong whilst very light weight, small pneumatic wheels for their applications to work correctly. Mountainboards, Kiteboards, 2Wheel, Dirt-Scooters, Bikes Skates, Sledges, Trikes, Skikes, Model Planes, Single Seater Planes, Dog Sledding, Dirt Skiing, Transportation Chariots & now lots of exciting electronic applications all due to come to the market very soon, all require an 8 inch wheel for their best movement... If you have a wheeled project on the go & you would like to fit TRAMPA's 8 inch wheels onto it, then in your design you need to use a 12mm axle & you will need to give an axle mounting space of 34.2mm in order to fit the TRAMPA Hubs correctly.
The 6 Spoke HYPA Wheel
is the lightest & strongest plastic injected 7 & 8 inch Hub / Wheel on the market today! Its produced using original DuPont ingredients & the best Injection Moulding machinery, no quality expense is spared during the production of this amazingly strong little hub!
During testing the HYPA Wheels performance surpassed all expectations. :-) This little 8 inch wheel proved to be so strong, when the "Crash Test Dummies" (i mean the Mountainboard Team Riders) inflated their tyres well beyond factory recommendations! (Tut-Tut Naughty-Naughty!) The extra inflation resulted in substantially faster roll speeds, giving them the extra time in the air to complete their huge freestyle moves & still have time land in 1 piece! I'm pleased to tell you there were no explosions from the over inflation to report whilst breaking a HYPA HUB is just about unheard of, something extraordinary has to go wrong before these hubs do! If you have seen some of the crazy stuff the MTB & KTB teams have put the equipment through over the years, with genuinely almost no problems to report, you will have no doubt of the HYPA WHEELS performance capabilities.
HYPA Hubs are available in loads of coordinating colour combinations its difficult to make the decision as to which option you like the most! You can choose from naked Matt Black or White to Painted Gloss Red or Gloss Blue with Painted Black or White TRAMPA Logo's or Printed in Winter or Army Camo, the choice is all yours... :-)
TRAMPA's HYPA hubs are held together using Marine Grade (A4) Stainless steel Nuts & Bolts that will never rust on you. Our bolts are perfect for bad conditions. Not only will the nuts & Bolts never rust on you all the Bolts used by TRAMPA have been dipped in a special Blue Locking Paste, whilst all the Nuts that TRAMPA uses are fitted with the world renowned Nyloc nylon nut locking system, all of these no expense spared small details ensure you get the absolute best product possible! To help prevent you from purchasing imitations, TRAMPA's HYPA Hubs are always TRAMPA embossed between the spokes proving our top quality!
Currently, we only have the INLINE tyre tread in the 7 inch Tyres. This makes them perfect for hard packed surfaces from asphalt to Tarmac and suitable for all kinds of creations from Junior sized Mountainboards to fast Pumpy Dirt Scooter tyres in the skate park....
TRAMPA’s very own & genuine ABEC 5 rated Bearings, push perfectly into the 'Centre Set' bearing housings either side of the hub. The bearings are held in position internally by use of a 'Bearing Support Spacer' sitting on the axle in the middle of the hub guaranteeing the smoothest spin rate possible. TRAMPA's Bearings will fit onto 9.525mm, 10mm & 12mm Axles. 9.525mm is the same as USA Imperial measurement 3/8ths of an inch, AKA '10mm Bearings'. Bearing Reducer Sleeves downsize your 12mm Bearings to fit onto 10mm Metric Scooter Axles or 9.525mm (3/8ths of an inch) Imperial Skate Axles. Bearings can be supplied at 50% of the usual retail price when purchased with a wheel... 2x Bearings cost just £2.50 per pair (usually £2.50 each), resulting in a £10 saving per set of 8x bearings, 8 bearings are enough for a set of 4 wheels!

The range of riding & the comfort of the URBAN Carve is like the board you have always dreamed of.... It is as far as im concerned the 1 everyone should have!!!
Im thinking to buy a board but im not sure which kind would be better for me, I plan to use it to cruise into London most of the time. My choice is between to kinds of board, should i take a street carver or urban carver? I mean, considering the wheels i think an urban carver will be better but can you validate it for me, what are the main differences between this 2 kinds? Thanks you for your help, A Customer
Have you thought of an electric board if you are commuting far? Im saying that because pushing the Street or Urban carver around town might be a little cumbersome for a long way...
The Street carver is ok to push, ive done it for years around Nottingham, but its not perfect, i get on with it fine, specially riding down steep hills (we have lots of them in Nttingham & before the days of electric boards my main street ride was Street Carver down Steep hills), and im quite happy to push but that's because im not a regular longboarder, I was quite late to boarding & took straight to the Street Carver, regular longboarders are used to much more narrow trucks with slightly longer decks, they find the change difficult somehow, & somehow because of this the deck is different to a Longboard, specially when pushing as it should really to be used on steep hills where fast turns are required or with a motor where it comes into its own class of performance... E-Boarding is the future for sure... BUT if pushing on the Urban carver, ur right the wheels cruise over all the cracks & bumps with ease, but the deck sits way to high too push comfortably in my opinion... Again, this deck comes into its own when ridden down steep hills and most in particualr when coupled with an electric motor but i would not recommend pushing on this my friend...
Best bit is, the Street carver & the Urban carver are basically the same deck... The only difference between them is the wheels (obviously) & the direction of which the hanger is facing when constructing the Truck as too the only difference's between them... The axle in the hanger is off centered, so when we assemble the hanger facing forwards or backwards the wheel base of the deck changes, making it longer for the Urban Carve deck (allowing extra space for the bigger wheels) & of course, suitably shorter for the faster turning & mush smaller Stickies Longboard wheels on the Street carver Deck...
To make the change you would need to remove the spring adjusters from the baseplate and the countersunk bolts at the bottom of the hanger, then pull out the unsecured springs, undo the M6 nut and pull out the kingpin, making sure you dont loose any bushings pull apart the hanger from the baseplate and simple turn one of the 180º and re-connect them back together...
Once the truck is removed from the deck (2 minutess work) you should be able to make the hanger swap in less than 5 minutes if you have the correct tools and the knack of popping the springs back in.... :-)
