The 2017 Samba X-Flex carving longboard by Lush Longboards

The original version of the Samba by Lush Longboards got tweaked to become their new so called ”ultimate freestyle carving machine”, the Samba X-Flex.

Samba X-Flex 2017 complete by Lush Longboards

The Samba is 90 cm long and 23.5 cm wide and has a 72.4 cm wheelbase. The design includes an Angled Drop Down profile with a Flushmount. In addition, it also features the Lush X-Flex Composite construction, with which they were able to tweak the board’s flex pattern to just the right amount for carving.

Further improvements include a little more concave, a shorter overall length and a tweaked platform, to eliminate wheel bite at maximum lean.

The board is designed to alter the truck geometry which in essence creates a very turny ride, similar to snowboarding and surfing.

Although the board is not really made for speed, freeride or tricks, it is a great cruising & carving deck for the every day commuter.

Happy cruising & carving!
