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...
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 kind 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
Are you thinking of an electric board? Im saying that because pushing the street or Urban carver around town might be a little cumbersome...
The Street carver is ok to push, but not perfect, i get on with it fine, but that's because im not a regular longboarder, regular longboarders are used to more narrow trucks and they find the change difficult somehow, the deck is 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... if pushing on the Urban carver, ur right the wheels cruise over all the cracks and bumps with ease, but the deck sits to high to push comfortably... Again, this deck comes into its own when coupled with an electric motor and high powered battery but i would not recommend pushing on this my friend...
Best bit is, the Street carver and the Urban carver are basically the same deck...only difference is the wheels (obviously) and the direction of which the hanger is facing as too the difference between them... the axle in the hanger is off centered, so when we mount the hanger the other way around the wheel base changes, making it longer for the Urban carver deck (compensating for the bigger wheels) and shorter for the faster turning 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.... :-)

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.

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!
