GET LIT WITH LAVA: Building on our experience manufacturing the Tarab, we've updated the Basalt Tesseract with a high-performance, eco-conscious basalt fabric construction for a lighter, damper, and more freestyle-friendly board. 4 color options to match your road rash.
Stash the quiver, clear your mind, and let the Basalt Tesseract be your versatile companion in the quest for four-wheeled illumination. The Basalt Tesseract integrates rocker, wheel well flares, W concave, and multiple wheelbase options into a lightweight package designed for hilly descents, snappy slides, lofty ollies, techy manual combos, and cross-steps galore.
Functional Design— Symmetrical shape and kicktails encourage switch riding and a multitude of tricks and slides. Multiple wheelbase options allow you to fine tune your setup based on riding style and truck geometry. Updated semi-aggressive griptape: Grippy but not evil.
Curvaceous Confidence— Rocker cradles your feet for locked-in slides. Tall, wide W concave mellows out near the trucks for comfort while providing strong lateral support for carving and sliding. Wheel well flares increase wheel clearance and create ergonomic reference points for your feet.
Light and Durable— Dual bamboo cores are sandwiched between layers of basalt fabric to create a strong and lightweight structure with the perfect balance of flex and pop for a more dynamic and forgiving ride. A bottom layer of cork provides vibration damping and helps prevent abrasive damage from spreading.

For freestyle, freeride, dancing, and carving we recommend setting up the Basalt Tesseract with 43° reverse-kingpin trucks for optimal agility and control. 50° trucks also work well for a more maneuverable freestyle and dancing setup.
We run a range of wheel sizes from 62mm to 75mm on the Basalt Tesseract with great results. 62-65mm freeride — lightweight and compact for technical freestyle and freeride 69-70mm freeride — good all-around wheel size for freeride, freestyle, and dancing 70mm race — grippier option for smooth carving, dancing, and freestyle with less sliding 73-75mm freeride — larger diameter for rough roads and more roll speed 75mm race — largest option for smooth and grippy carving and dancing
