There are a few things that we did with the Chaisy design that are truly one-of-a-kind. Riders don’t necessarily have to recognize these features; the board just has to feel good! But we are going to tell you what they are, because they’re cool and unique.
First, we flared the front wheel wells and combined the flare with a crescent drop so that there’s plenty of wheel clearance despite this deck having a 3/8″ micro drop, which is quite rare. Furthermore, we brought in the truck mounting area really tightly into the drop with an angled flush mount to the tune of a positive 3 degrees. This angled flush gives the board some directionality and also uniquely fixes the issue of the deck potentially having a weak spot in this area, because the angled flush actually takes less plies away. We also 3D shaped the wheel wells so that they’re thinnest toward the edges of the board, where the bite would form, and there’s a little more meat near the flush mount. We’ve seen decks break by combining deep flush with deep 2-dimensionally projected wheel wells, and this was our answer to that problem. Chase has absolutely manhandled these boards, and they’re staying strong.
Next, we added a unique mustache rocker design. Because the deck’s platform is quite tight (we’re fitting everything into a 22.75″ wheelbase between two microdrops, after all), it has pretty obvious positions where your feet will go. Separating with a funky camber in the center with microdrops on either side is like sticking your feet into bindings. You are going to be really locked in on this board!
