The Overland has been designed to bridge the size gap between the Kanthaka and Tesseract decks.
The Overland takes its name from a major avenue in the LA Westside connecting Culver City in the south with Rancho Park in the north. The board's graphic is an illustration of this region (with the Loaded office highlighted in red). The textured pattern in the urethane bottom sheet is a topographical map showing the undulating elevation gradients in Loaded's backyard.
This new Overland deck from Loaded is a perfect all rounder. Sitting happily between the riders wanting a shorter, technical deck with a double kick and those who are looking for a lean, mean, downhill freeriding machine! Mild wheel-well flares, and a concave deck ensure a comfortable stance on the Overland is yours, with a beefy kicktail and steeper nose give a crisp pop and provides more leverage for ollies, slides and manuals. With a subtle, tapered waistand directional shape, the Overland helps with quick back foot changes from rail to rail and accentuates the rear wheel-well flares., while a moderately stiff flex allows for responsive turning.
Slight rocker complements the board's subtle flex and allows you to sink into a comfortable hammock-like interface for both leisurely and aggressive riding. The rocker helps freestyle tricks feel more natural and also creates a solid platform for pushing and commuting. The rocker blends smoothly into the rear wheel well flares.
WHEEL WELL FLARES
Mild flares pressed into the deck increase wheel clearance while also serving as ergonomic reference points.
The Overland features mild radial concave, slightly deeper near the front to lock your foot in and mellower in the back.
The Overland features two wheelbase options. The longer 22" wheelbase is intended for reverse-kingpin trucks and provides additional stability for faster riding; the shorter 20.75" wheelbase accommodates conventional trucks and allows for improved agility and responsiveness.
NOSE & TAIL KICKS
The longer rear kicktail has a shallower angle to facilitate ollies and no-complies. A wider shape also provides ample leverage for bluntslides and tail-heavy freeriding. The shorter and steeper nose is better suited for nollie freestyle tricks, nose manuals, and leveling out ollies.
The Overland features a moderately rigid flex. The directional shape causes the flex pattern to feel stiffer near the front and slightly looser near the back, maintaining an energetic feel while pumping and hard carving without compromising the board's high-speed stability or sliding response.
The Overland is equipped with coarse griptape along the rails for optimal edge control in aggressive sliding and pumping maneuvers. A strip of mellower grip down the centerline of the board allows for less abrasive ollies and street freestyle tricks.
Old-school nostalgia meets modern functionality. The Overland's '80s pool-style shape is wider in the front for lots of leverage and narrower in the back for quicker rail-to-rail foot movement while sliding and cornering. The hourglass waist accentuates the wheel well flares for better tactile feedback in slides. The kicktail is large and in charge for primarily directional riding.
THERMOPLASTIC URETHANE BASE
A TPU bottom sheet provides vibration damping and protects the board against abrasion. Additionally, the low-friction material glides easily over rough surfaces, allowing for more effortless boardslides and tailslides.
We recommend reverse-kingpin trucks and 70mm wheels on the Overland for freeriding, carving, pumping and downhill aficionados. 43-44° baseplates provide more lean and stability for faster riding, while 50° baseplates are more responsive for quick maneuvering and aggressive slashing. On narrower (160-170mm) hangers, we recommend offset wheels; on wider (180mm) hangers, centerset wheels are ideal.
Conventional trucks and 58-66mm wheels complement the Overland in street, freestyle, transition, and light freeriding applications. On narrower (8.5" or 159) hangers, we recommend offset wheels; on wider (9" or 169) hangers, centerset wheels are ideal.
