2019 was dream come true from Australian downhill. Mitch Thompson won Newtons, first Australian to ever win a World Cup race! Harry Clarke becomes the first Australian downhill skateboard World Champion. Downhill is included in the World Roller Games, and Australia creates the first Australian Downhill Team to represent Australia. This deck celebrates all those first and a lot more. This is the Harry Clarke Pro Model, in Australian team colours. Not only was Harry a member of Team Australia, he made the final and the podium, narrowly coming second in the final. Harry's good form continued after that Portugal event, and he went on the become World Champion.
This deck represents everything that is amazing about Australian downhill and Harry Clarke. It is the green and gold version of the Snitch.
This longboard deck was designed for downhill and fast freeride. The W-Concave extends from the front foot pocket all the way down to the tail of the deck. The nose is designed with a wedge that acts as a pocket to lock your front foot and control your board.
The Madrid Snitch Harry Clarke has sharp rails, big wheels-wells and is constructed with a top layer of Formica. Formica is to stiff the deck and reduce vibrations.
It was on this deck that Harry Clarke won the 2019 IDF World Championship.
If you want to set it up like Harry: he uses Rogue Precision trucks, 106 on the front and a 119 on the back with Venom Magnum Mach 1 wheels.
For mere mortals, such as you and me, Caliber 184mm and 76mm Venom Cannibal wheels. If you want to emulate Harry's small truck set up without spending $500+ on precision trucks, then use Paris 150 trucks and 72mm Cannibal wheels in 76a or 71mm Harlots in 80a for a freeride machine.
