Artwork by Max Löffler. The Globe Pintail 37 in colour "The Launcher" is a full-length pintail carver made of Resin-7 hard rock maple. It is a flat shape with no concave and it features 180mm Slant reverse kingpin trucks and 70mm 78a wheels. It also has a printed griptape and a dipped deck. It is available in size 37.5" x 8.5" x 26.5"WB."
Epoxy resin is used to press all of our boards which make them lighter, stronger and longer lasting than normal water-based decks.
Slant Reverse Kingpin Trucks
Typically used on models greater than 34" long Reversible 50/54° hangers. 50° for stability at high speeds. 54° for tighter, more responsive turns.
Globe's high-rebound urethane formulas are abrasion resistant, smoother, faster, and provide excellent grip. Standard on every complete, Globe Abec-7 bearings spin faster and longer which means less effort and faster.
As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of premium skateboards, we use a significant amount of wood in our production. In order to off-set the timber we use to construct our skateboards, our goal is to engage in forestry efforts that replace far more than we consume.
To that effect, we have partnered with the National Forest Foundation (NFF) to donate to their tree-planting program. Globe’s yearly donations to the NFF help plant more than three times the amount of trees we harvest annually in making our skateboards.
The NFF is a United States non-profit organisation that launched an ambitious campaign to plant 50 million trees across public National Forests between 2018 and 2023. The NFF partners with the United States Forest Service to target National Forests impacted by wildfire, pests and other disturbances. Globe is proud to be making a contribution towards that effort.
