The Flowlab Bullit 32 Shortboard Carves Like A Snowboard

By David Ponce

It pisses the living snot out of me that I don’t skateboard. I say this because I firmly believe that the Flowlab Bullit 32 Shortboard is a work of pure, delicious, unadulterated genius.

See, it’s a board with not four wheels, but rather 14, arranged in two semi-circular rows of 7.

The patented 14 wheeled Deep Carve System (DCS) allows you to carve with the rhythm and flow of snowboarding and surfing. Most skateboards reach their turning limit at about a 25 degree angle. With Flowlab Skateboards, you’ll flow through 45 degree turns with the edges of the board almost kissing the pavement.

Designed to control speed by carving, these boards are a great alternative to lift lines, long drives to the mountains, and the summertime blues.

There’s a video of it in action, too.

It’s $200, at Carveboards.com. Story VIA Travelizmo.

    The flowboard isn’t as cool as it looks. I have ridden one its heavy and doesn’t flow from wheel to wheel like it says. It’s more of a jerking feel as you transition from wheel to wheel. The tierney board however is much better. It’s a better street carver than them all by far. Although if you want to get as close to snowboarding on the pavement as possible then the freeboard is best, it’s the only one that actually carves. I own a freeboard and a tierney board and my friend has a flowboard, the one we ride the most is the tierney board by far.

    Snowboarding is the best. Let's stop global warming to save this sport.

    Impractical, how are you supposed to push on that thing?  And with a wheel system like that, freestyle must be virtually impossible, so what’s with the kicks? Though it must carve brilliantly, It might carve a little too well, the wheels of a regular skateboard help keep the board stable, but standing on this must be like standing on a giant tube, I don’t trust the stability, it just looks like it’ll tip right over. If you want a reliable carve, just get a longboard.
