Q & A:

What advantages does SNAP Longboard have over other longboards?
All longboards will flex to varying degrees and may eventually incur stress cracks.  Our Canadian maple board is divided into 3 shorter sections, making each section much stronger than any simple wooden deck, which means our sections will not break.  When SNAP Longboard bears weight, the downward force is predictably absorbed by the incredibly durable hinges, which results in a controlled flex – like a vehicle's suspension system.  Although the hinges clearly enable our foldable longboard to conveniently transform into a portable skateboard – equally important is each hinge's function as an independent suspension mechanism to impart a super-smooth ride quality that's unmatched by any conventional longboard.  Even after many hours of cruising around, your feet and knees will remain comfortable.
 
Is it safe to use?
We use high quality Canadian boards along with our tough custom-made hinges not regular cabinet or piano hinges.  Our hinges are made of proprietary parts that can support a lot of weight and lock in place, so whenever the longboard is unfolded, the sections will always remain straight and secure to ensure safety to the rider.  These ultra strong yet discreetly sized hinges integrate with a beautiful and sturdy maple deck, so what you'll get is an aesthetically pleasing, practical, and functionally superior longboard.
 
How strong is the longboard?
We recommend a limit of 200 lbs (90 kg) and although the longboard will support much more weight, excessive weight will induce more flexing of the deck and lessen its ground clearance.  Of note, our $6 Combo Pack includes 4 risers (see pics) to raise the deck higher off the ground.  SNAP Longboard's patented hinge system is extremely durable and we confidently stand behind our product 100%.

How well does it ride?
SNAP Longboard has a low center of gravity which is ideal for ease of balance and pushing-off, and the robust folding mechanism provides tons of road vibration dampening to offer a super-smooth cruising experience.  Please check out the Reviews Page.
