Carbon Feather Proto V2 Longboard bracket
V2 - we have added material to meet the GBomb reliability standards and done a lot more testing. This Carbon Feather is the ultralight premium member of our Longboard composite series. At 168 grams this is the lightest adustable bracket.
Designed for hangers around 150mm, the Carbon Feather Longboard bracket has 35mm of drop combined with 30 degrees of angle adjust (15 degrees of dewedge and up to 15 degrees of wedge). The carbon fiber composite material is stronger in tension than the aluminum alloy used most brackets, yet it has a density of less than half of aluminum. At 168 grams the Carbon Feather Frame is an about 50% lighter than our aluminum DD series, and about 30% lighter than the Glass Drop Longboard. The molding process allows us to strengthen the structure by putting the material where traditional metal working can't. The composite design positions the truck 11mm closer to the deck than the aluminum DD series to maximize pumping leverage, but still permits big wheels.
We have minimized the need for shock pads by integrating robust and compliant O-rings to protect the bracket and deck interface. With the addition of 2mm of riser at the truck, the composite series brackets are Paris truck compatible. A recess down the center of the deck interface accommodates heavy concave platforms. We have our machinist CNC away extra material from the molding process that is not needed due to the high strength of the carbon fiber composite.
Color options. The electrical conductivity of the carbon fiber composite allows the Carbon Feather to be powder coated. Super cool huh? We are offering Red and White color options in addition to the carbon black.
Longboard Infinity Bolt Hardware is included.
One final note, we recommend that you tighten the truck attach infinity bolts a bit more with this bracket to prevent slipping. The interface is a bit more slippery than with our aluminum brackets. However, the truck attach infinty minor bolts are not subject to the stresses of the deck interface and the majors can handle the additional torque needed to clamp things tight.
