BANZAI Skateboard Series #01
The unique brushing technique of Banzai’s aluminum decks actually provides a rather grippy surface and does not necessarily require a traditional grip tape. However, it is an option and several strips of grip tape are part of every Banzai package. You decide how to cut and place the grip tape. Get creative and give the board a personal touch.
No matter which surface, the translucent, ultra-grippy Banzai Speed Seal wheels never lose track. With a softness of 85a and a diameter of 59mm, you will almost be unstoppable. The rigid inner core of the wheel ensures stability and absolute concentricity.
One of the biggest improvements over the original 70’s Banzai setup are our newly developed low-friction custom ceramic bearings. Ceramic balls behind stainless steel shields are not only fast and smooth but also extremely durable.
A custom-designed tool in a classy leather case is part of every Banzai skateboard. Minimalized engineering for smooth and hustle-free assembling.
For maximum control and stability, we have brought back the original Banzai x-caliber truck. The foundation of this truck is a weight-saving aluminum hanger and a robust, non-bendable carbon steel axle. Bushings with a medium hardness of 90a provide for sharp turns and thanks to the matching shock absorbers a vibration-free ride is guaranteed.
Laser-engraved serial numbers ensure that each Banzai aluminum skateboard is a unique piece, limited to an edition of 50 per color and size.
