  • Regular price $289.99


Everything you love about the Switchblade 38 but now top mounted from the factory for increased responsiveness and deeper turns. Premium construction featuring carbon stringers and fiberglass, assembled at our Kimberley, BC factory, means this board leaves nothing on the table when it comes to performance. The Fixed Blade is absolutely your board of choice whether you’re taking on big mountain roads, steep freeride spots, or just crushing your daily commute.

The Fixed Blade is a drop-down DH/Freeride shape that is designed to give you a low, comfortable platform for exploring big hills as well as getting around town as quickly as possible. You may have seen team riders like Dillon Stephens rocking top mounted Switchblades over the years on the race circuit, but now we’ve dialed it in and made it available to everyone. The top mounted design gives you ultimate control over your trucks while deep concave, matched with aggressive W concave and foot pockets at the drops, give you the reference points you need to explore the limits of your freeriding. The 8 ply maple construction, bolstered by carbon stringers and a bottom fiberglass ply, keeps the board stiff and under control. The Fixed Blade measures in at 38" long by 9.8" wide with a wheelbase of 29” and comes set up with 180mm Gen 6 Grizzly trucks and 70mm 78a Hawgs Supremes wheels for premium freeride capabilities straight out of the box.

FLEX RATING

So, what’s flex and why is it important to a skateboard? In skate-nerd terms, flex is the amount of displacement a deck sees when a specific amount of force is applied to it. Check out our formula to the left! There are a few factors that affect flex, like deck thickness, wheelbase, and the amount of force on a deck. We built a machine and put our entire lineup to the test by applying the exact same amount of force to all our boards and measured the displacement we saw in each. This gives a totally scientific and accurate flex range across our entire line! It’s important to understand flex when choosing a board. Here are some basics: Downhill/freeride skateboards will have less flex because you need a stiff platform to stand on when you’re bombing or gripping a corner at speed. Carving skateboards will have more flex, giving you the ability to sink into your turns and pump or carve with ease. Most cruisers, dance and ATV boards will have less flex for control when doing tricks but just enough to be forgiving when pushing around town. We’ve engineered our boards with the best flex for each style of riding but remember, flex is subjective so get out and see what you like the most!
