The Eggboard skateboard is solid if you’re looking for something portable, and you can commute short distances. You can even take it as a carry-on when flying since it’s under 20 inches. Or even if you’re getting it for a younger kid. Keep in mind that because of the short wheelbase, it doesn’t handle higher speeds well.
Here’s where I completely take this board apart and inspect each part.
The deck is probably my favorite part of this board.
It’s made out of bamboo which will chip less compared to what most skate decks are made of – Canadian maple.
Because this deck is short, made of bamboo, and about half an inch thick, it doesn’t flex at all. It can hold up to 300lbs. The grip tape design is a cool touch with the egg crack.
The trucks are 7-inch aluminum reverse kingpins.
They’re powder-coded, which is a nice addition from an aesthetic standpoint.
You can loosen them to carve sharply, but you don’t want to go too far because you can get wheel bite.
The wheels are 69mm 76a, which essentially means they’re wide and soft
Because of this, they allow you to cruise over rough environments with ease and perform deep carves.
The bushings are standard barrel and cone. I didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary. They allowed for smooth turning.
The bearings are single-capped, making them easy to maintain. I would love to see them have built-in spacers in the future, but it’s not a big deal.
The overall size of the Eggboard is great for easily stashing away.
I’ve dropped this board numerous times, and it’s durable. This is nice compared to, say, a plastic penny board deck that easily gets eaten up by pavement.
The wheels can hit your feet if you have a larger shoe size.
