Review : Mini logo skateboard - deck - wheel - bearing - trucks

 

Mini logo complete skateboard review after only 5 hours of street skating. I mention street skating as it's not the same as super clean park ground.

I have a bunch of picks and vids that I took to send back that poor quality skateboard but I choose the wheel, not the sadest pic though.

I will not elaborate on tricks made or my actual capacities as after only 5 hours it's not relevant. Let's say for a + 40 years dude, I'm still not landing a kickflip, but I'm perfecting all the tricks in between that and the ollie...

 

Mini logo Chevron deck : chips so easy after the first hour I could have made a couple of small toothpicks with it. It looks like it's made of balsa wood, super soft. DO NOT EXPECT A LONG LIFE. Pop was great but for how long? I do not have an answer to that.

Mini Logo trucks : After 5 hours the Pivot cup was destroyed. there was like 2 to 3mm play on a 5 axis scale. SCARY. Useable : yes. Engeenering quality : questionable. My new tensor mag light (review coming) after 5 hours have NO PLAY whatsoever.

Mini logo Bushings : probably good if you weight less than 80kg.

Mini logo Bearings : after 2 hours made the quality sound of a 30$ complete purchased at the supermarket. And I know what quality bearing sound like (redz, oust, skf)

Mini logo Wheels : well the pic speaks for itslef, after 5 hours. Bad slideability on street concrete (compared to bones stf for exemple) and start chiping.

 

I've been told, the complete was defective. Yeah right...like 100% of the parts were defective at the same time. I don't understand what makes some pro skaters endorse this product. Simple marketing or real honesty?

Probably a good complete for a kid i guess.

Review : Bern Macon Helmet

This helmet has a removable liner so you can use it for skateboarding or snoboarding, which is exactly what I was looking for.

The best way to test a helmet is to crash. I did not so I will only review comfort and how thought of the product is.

For skateboarding there is nothing to report. This lid is just great and low profile and it feels light with a perfect airflow on medium and high temperatures.

For Snowboarding it's a great Helmet but it depends on the condition.

Goggle clip works great.

With the included liner it's for sunny days in the afternoon when it's not really cold, for me 4 to 8°C with sun is OK.

Below, like -5 to 4°C if I had to give an aproximate value, I have to wear also a Merino woolpower ultra low profile : Helmet cap 400.

Below -10°C, it's just not wearable for me, too much ventilation and not enough liner. Maybe a different under helmet cap could work?

A small, under shin confortable strap wouldn't be a luxury given the price tag but all in all a great investement!
