Rayne‘s “Vandal” is a top-mount, downhill skateboard, featuring a stiff, vertical bamboo and fiberglass construction, a length of 35.5″, a width of 10″, as well as an adjustable wheelbase of either 25.25″ or 26.5″. This deck is built with a deep concave, distinct and various curvatures, as well as a sharp edge throughout.
The Vandal‘s lightweight construction, ample width, well designed concave, as well as the board’s sharp edges provide for a locked-in feeling that gives you confidence when riding fast roads with multiple, tight corners. We can’t forget to also mention that the tattoo-style graphic on this board is pretty sick as well.
You do have to be careful with your truck and wheel combination choice when riding this board. We used 75mm wheels and 42º trucks, and we did get some wheelbite.
The Vandal is a super-responsive, top-mount, downhill skateboard. It’s lightweight construction, solid width, sharp edges, and technical contouring combine to create an able speed-board that’s ready for anything. We recommend this deck to the skater interested in a top-mount that is quality, and ready for speed.
