TRAMPA MOUNTAIN BOARDS are amazing! TRAMPA BOARDS are custom made, by hand in the UK, specific to the weight, height & ability of the rider. Regardless of your weight or height there is a tailor made TRAMPA deck that can be made just for you. It DOES MATTER which model you ride however every TRAMPA deck is sold as un-breakable. Since the very first prototype of the TRAMPA deck was made way back in 2002, the incredible TRAMPA material has never once failed on us or any customer in any shape or form - No cracks, No snaps, No de-lams or splits or anything what so ever, EVER!! :-)
A Mountainboard can be ridden on any Hard Packed Terrain such as a mud tracks, trails through the woods, down a hill in a farmers field or maybe even in your back yard if it is large enough! Hilly, well groomed slopes (such as hilly Golf Courses), are like the Mecca of ride venues... They are amazing to ride but you are quite likely to get into trouble unless permission has been granted (which in my experience doesn't usually happen on a golf course so just get a quick ride in when no-one is looking & then scarpa before you get caught!!). However there are many dedicated Mountainboard centres around the world where you can get tuition from a professional or compare / show off your skills whilst competing at the events or just ride with other like minded progressing riders as a crew & sharing your skills... Check out the Ride Guide for some great suggestions of where to ride & who to ride with... :-)
The harsh elements that Mountainboards usually operate in, such as mud, sand, sea-salt or dirty puddle water - non one of these harsh elements will harm the TRAMPA Board what so ever. When producing the TRAMPA decks, the fibers of secret material almost turn to a liquid like state, almost swimming around each other gaining inter-twined fiber contact, but during cooling their close contact fuses these fibers together making a fantastic molecular connection, as Stringer than one one solid piece.... Ensuring the air is continuously sucked out of the mould the during entire baking process pulls the fibers even closer, close enough for us to be able to say the TRAMPA DECKS ARE UN- BREAKABLE well beyond their intended use!
To complement the TRAMPA decks un-breakable reputation, high purity metals coated in top quality surface coatings such as Powder-coating & Anodising are applied to protect all the metal components from corrosion in the naturally harsh elements. TRAMPA prioritises quality before price in all aspects of what it does, especially when it comes to avoiding corrosion & rust. To ensure there is no rust, all of the Nuts & Bolts used to construct all of the Parts & Components in a TRAMPA Board including the construction of the deck, is all made using MARINE GRADE (A4) STAINLESS STEEL fixings, which means your board will never grow any unsightly rust, EVER!!
TRAMPA Decks are custom made to the riders weight, height & riders ability. We can make the perfect custom model for every shape & size of rider there is. As a guide, smaller / younger 'Gromit' riders benefit from lighter decks such as the 15º SHORT or the super-light-weight 15º HOLY PRO, which both use Skate style Trucks, whilst larger / heavier riders need something bigger & more robust to handle their weight on the rough terrain, such as the Spring Steering system... As a guide, progressing teenage riders tend to choose models such as the 35º Short Deck, whilst Adult Sized Riders tend to take a the 35º LONG. If you are an advanced level rider looking for an all-round board that is perfect to Free-ride & Freestyle then choose the hugely attractive & very popular 35º HOLYPRO deck as this will not let you down!
As well as your physical size and riding ability, it very much depends on the type of riding you are hoping to do, ie, Mountainboard Free-ride or Mountainboard Freestyle? A TRAMPA deck can be used to enjoy all applications of Mountainboarding but just like purchasing a bike, you probably wouldn't purchase a BMX to ride a Road race... This is what stands TRAMPA decks out from the competition as we give the rider the advantage by tuning the performance to their requirements so please don't purchase a Kiteboard if you wish to predominantly Mountainboard as the performance information is supplied on the product page is completely different to that of a Mountainboard, this is because (again generally speaking) the Kite board riders prefer a much more Flexy deck compared to the Mountain Boarders...
If the terrain is very soft then you may benefit more so with a 35º LONG deck but fitted with the 9 Inch wheels, where as Big-Air or Freestyle riders tend to benefit from shorter, faster rotating decks, such as the 35º SHORT or for the more recreational or slightly older rider who still wants the thrill of dirt riding but hasn't got the movement to get down & power-slide, the NEW MAGURA HS11 Brakeboard is the perfect answer should you wish to add the powerful Hydraulic brakes to their ride.
