Pros and Cons of Zoo York Blue Print Heritage Complete Skateboard
If you’re into skating, then there’s every chance that you are going to know the name Zoo York, and there’s also every chance that you will immediately recognise it as a name that means quality and style in equal measure. The Blue Print Heritage set up does not let the company down. From the first ride, it is smooth, supple with plenty of pop, but with a sense of the hard wearing future this board will undoubtedly deliver.
Set up to be relatively forgiving and hard wearing, the Blue Print sits on 51mm Urethane wheels, and is constructed from the highest quality Hardrock Maple, which gives flex, pop but a firm feel which will ensure that the board lasts its full life span. The low profile trucks are strong as an Ox and will provide any skater with the platform for performing even the most outrageous moves which pile a whole load of pressure on the board.
Whether you are new to skating and just looking to carve it up in your local neighbourhood, or you are planning to hit the closest skate park and bust some air off the top of the vert ramp, you can be confident in the performance of this deck. Thankfully it looks as good as it performs, so you’ll be the envy of the other skaters, no matter where you go.
Zoo York have done what everyone would expect of them – produced a full set up that gets people out on the board with the minimum fuss and the maximum style. Retaining high quality along with an affordable price, this is quality skateboarding for the masses. The graphics on the underside of the bar might not last long if you are a fan of rail slides and grinds, but for as long as it’s intact, it looks great! The Zoo York Blue Print Heritage Complete Skateboard set up is everything you could possibly need to enter the world of skating.
