What ARe Cruiser Boards

If you want a board primarily for commuting purposes, then your options come down to just these two. Longboards and cruiser boards. Indeed, these two board types share many similarities. Meanwhile, skateboards are a totally different type, used for riders who are keen to do tricks and other technical manoeuvres.

Cruisers come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. Typically, however, they have flat surfaces, which allows the rider to hop on and off curbs quickly. This feature is also what enable riders to correct the board more easily.

Whereas longboards are used for long-distance travelling, cruisers are more suitable for short to medium distances. In fact, they are the ideal boards to use when travelling around a small city such as Singapore. They are not suitable for downhill riding (though you’ll be hard-pressed to find many hills in Singapore) or carving.

The size of cruiser board belongs to the in-between range, with them being longer than skateboards but shorter than longboards. A typical cruiser board has length ranging between 60cm – 80cm, and widths between 19.5cm – 21.5cm.

Past Customers

"Very pleased with the quality of this board! I am a beginner, yet it was fairly easy to ride; very smooth ride and great balance to it. It is beautifully made and won't disappoint! It would be perfect for any age, since it is a smaller style board. I am nearly 30-years-old and had a blast with it!"

– Tiffany Liu (Customer)

"I got this for my adult son who loves to longboard and now that he lives in a city he needed a more compact board that he could carry into classrooms and stores. He assures me that this board works really well. He appreciates the thoughtfulness of the wheel-size and the grip on the board. Apparently, his friends who have penny boards slip right off of them, however, the grip on this gives him a lot more control. Great board!"

– Jason Koh (Customer)

"I wanted something that would fit the lifestyle of a city commuter and this has been perfect. It takes a little breaking into, but that is typical of anything new. You do not need any grip tape as the board's surface is fairly rough making the ride feel super stable. This cruiser is light too so when you're not riding, carrying it around is also fairly easy and comfortable. I am very pleased with my purchase."

What To Look Out For WHen Buying A Cruiser Board

Smooth Ride

Wheels.

 

Ideally, when you cruise around the city, you want the smoothest ride possible. It’s not going to be particularly enjoyable if you feel vibrations every few minutes due to the uneven terrain of the ground.

Whether this happens to you depends largely on the wheels you choose. Soft wheels are highly recommended for cruiser boards, since they are perfect for rough roads. They deal with cracks on the ground and uneven surfaces very well. 

Another point to note, is that cruisers should always have larger wheels than the typical skateboards. Most cruiser board wheels would have a diameter of 65mm, but anything above 60mm would do the job. 

Ride Control

FleX.

 

Flex, short for flexibility, describes the stiffness of the board. This is mostly affected by the material of choice. The thicker the material, the less flex there is. There is no universal agreed flex for cruiser boards. It all depends on personal preferences.

Boards with greater flex (less stiff), can absorb more shock, providing the rider with a smoother journey. However, the trade-off is in the lack of stability at higher speed. Going at high speeds with a high flex board is defintely not recommended.

Instead, if speed is important for you, then choose a board with lower flex (more stiff).

Schooner Swell Cruiser Board

Description

The Schooner is essentially a stretched out and scaled up Dinghy designed to give you a slightly more stable feel and deeper carves out of your cruiser board. At 30.75″ long and 8.6″ wide it’s still quite compact and has a good amount of pop, but the longer wheelbase and wider trucks allow for deeper turns and more stability. This board is perfect for someone looking for a stable, comfortable board to learn on, or taller riders who need a bit more room to operate on their cruiser board. We set this board up with Polar Bear 130mm trucks to give it the combination of agility and stability that it needed and finished it off with a set of 63mm 78a Easy Hawgs wheels to keep the board nice and light while still giving a fast, smooth ride.

Tips and Advice

What To Consider When Buying Cruiser Boards

Comfort

The one thing that many riders look for when choosing a board for commuting is comfort. After all, you’ll be spending significant amounts of time on these boards. If the boards vibrate constantly whilst cruising, it will make the journey that much less enjoyable.

Fortunately, cruiser boards are designed specifically with comfort in mind. Their lightweight nature allows them to pick up speed fast, whilst also using less energy to accelerate through the streets. The larger wheels also provide greater shock absorption from rougher terrains, allowing riders to have a smoother ride.

Storage

Just like the skateboard, a cruiser is small and lightweight. More so than its longboard counterpart. Their petite size makes them relatively easy to carry  carry around. You can bring your cruiser board with you just about anywhere. Through the city, on the bus. You can even store these boards on the overhead compartment in a plane. That’s how portable they are.

Compared to other vehicle types, such as a bicycle, these cruiser boards are so much easier to store. They do not take up much space, and can be chucked safely in one corner of the room. 

Purpose

Of course, the primary purpose for anyone considering getting a cruiser board is commuting. However, is there also a secondary purpose? For example, is the rider someone who knows how to skateboard? Or perhaps, an individual who is keen to do freestyle in his/her spare time? Does the rider also want to do downhill riding? 

Cruiser boards are slightly limited in these aspect. Every part of its design is maximised for travelling. As such, it does not do well when it comes to freestyling or downhill riding. Instead, a better alternative would be the longboard.

Support

One thing that many buyers neglect when buying a board, is the after-sales support. No matter how good your boards are, they tend to require a bit of maintenance and repair from time to time. It is therefore important to find a shop that provides such assistance. General board shops may not have the expertise to provide you with what you need.

As such, it is important to buy your cruiser board from a shop that provides good after-sales service. At SingaporeSkateboard, we provide an extensive range of support, ensuring that you have your doubts, qestions, and issues resolved in no time at all.
