Stash the quiver, clear your mind, and let the Tesseract be your versatile companion in the quest for four-wheeled illumination.
The Tesseract integrates rocker, wheel well flares, W concave, and multiple wheelbase options into a lightweight package designed for big mountain roads, high speeds, snappy slides, lofty ollies, and techy manual combos. Escape the three-dimensional confines of contemporary skateboarding and embrace the fourth dimension.
Symmetrical rocker throughout the deck cups the outer edges of your feet and creates a subtle locked-in sensation, helping you stay firmly planted in slides and facilitating confident and natural movement up and down the length of the board. Additionally, rocker slightly lowers your center of gravity for enhanced stability.
Wheel Well Flares
The Tesseract features flared wheel wells that increase wheel clearance and also create surface transitions that provide lateral and longitudinal support for your feet, both inside the trucks and on the kicktails. These flares promote board awareness and keep your feet locked into a compound contoured pocket while sliding, cornering, and tucking.
We've designed the Tesseract with an intuitive W concave to enhance rider control in all toeside manoeuvres. The central hump is tall yet wide, providing strong lateral support near the transitions without compromising arch comfort. The W concave on the Tesseract follows a mellow elliptical profile and fades gradually in amplitude approaching the trucks, disappearing 3/4" behind the innermost mounting holes. This design allows the inside edges of your feet to nestle up against the W (for toeside slides) while also allowing the outside of your foot to rest in a more radial dish just behind the flared wheel wells (for comfort while tucking on long downhill runs). Progressive yet mild rail concave provides optimal edge control without sacrificing comfort.
Symmetrical Shape: The Tesseract's outline shape is designed for maximum functionality and versatility. A slight taper toward the kicktails places the greatest width at the center of the board (for rear-foot leverage while tucking in a shorter stance) but is mild enough to keep the deck wide at the neck, over the bolts, and on the tails for plenty of leverage and control in a variety of stances. Completely symmetrical shape and contours guarantee that the Tesseract is ready for anything you throw its way - in any stance or orientation.
Designed to satiate both freeride and freestyle appetites, the Tesseract is endowed with tailored kicktails to get the job done with gusto. The width has been dialled in to provide exceptional toe and heel edge control, and the length and upturned tips generate powerful pop and accommodate the entire width of your foot. Subtle dished concave keeps your shoes glued to the board and aids in catching tricks into manuals and pivots. The contours of the kicktails blend in a tight transition with the outer surfaces of the wheel well flares to create compound contoured pockets for your feet both over and outside of the bolts, contributing to enhanced control for manuals and 360 slides.
The Tesseract offers both 24.5" and 26" wheelbase options, allowing you to fine tune your setup based on your riding style and specific truck geometry. Move your axles in for quicker pop, increased agility, higher traction, and lower swing weight; move them out for greater stability and more lean.
Our pressing need to explore the unconventional in skateboarding has influenced our design sensibilities and in late 2012 we released a downhill board with the intention to ollie and flip (Chubby Unicorn) and a double-kick with the ability to slide and blast down hills (Kanthaka). Fast forward to 2013.
Constant swapping, chopping, tweaking, and re-drilling revealed an opportunity for expansion in our freeride line-up. Leveraging this growing knowledge base we regrouped and developed a multitude of exciting ideas that planted the seeds for the Tesseract and numerous future projects. The parameters of the Tesseract were decided upon iteratively, and a lot of time was spent exploring exotic materials and constructions resulting in a stiff, light, and damp.
Two layers of custom fibreglass/epoxy skins sandwich two vertically-laminated bamboo cores to create a stiff yet light and damp structure. Laminated to the bottom of the board is a layer of cork which provides vibration damping and (as we learned to our surprise during testing) a significant level of durability. The granular, non-directional structure of the cork helps prevent abrasive damage from propagating (in contrast to a traditional wood or bamboo veneer with long, oriented fibres).
The tessellated pattern in the cork is generated in 4-dimensional space and can only be fully understood if you lick it.

Second longboard for me. Set up in short wheelbase, super sharp handling. Very aggressive concave 'W' really secures your feet, which in turn gives lots of confidence. Love my Loaded Tesseract!
