This Tesseract is directional, which means it has a different shape front and back. Nose is torpedo shaped and the tail is squared off. The tail gives you room to put your foot over the back truck. The lack of kick tail reduces the swing weight of the deck and makes it more responsive drifting and tucking in behind your draft victim.
It has almost a 1cm of rocker from front to back. It helps with your tuck, your back foot has something to push against and your front foot has something to push against, so your tuck will be locked in for high speeds. It also helps lower your centre of gravity and increases stability. The outer edges of the rocker grip your feet and you get a gentle lock in when sliding.
There is a nice W concave that tapers off towards the bolts. It does run in to the wheel flares and creates a pocket for toe side checks and locks in your front foot for heelside checks.
Construction is dual vertically laminated core, with a fibreglass on the top and bottom. There is also a cork layer on the bottom which adds vibration dampening.
This board is designed for big hills, high speeds and spreading urethane.
The design and particularly the 3.5° wedging angle works best with a low degree angle truck such as the Paris 180mm with 43 degree baseplate or Grizzly 840 or the Caliber forty four. Using one of these trucks you get lean and turn with a low ride height.
If you are going to get technical and want turny responsive wheel then use a smaller wheel like Fat Free or The Keanu.
Use the Kilmer, Cage or Morongas for fast freeriding.
For downhill: 4Presidents for fast takeoff, inHeat for big roll speed and Kegel for total domination. The bigger the wheel the more risers you will need. Please check for wheelbite before you use big wheels.
