#FlatspotDeckofTheDay: Loaded Icarus

The Loaded Icarus is the latest addition to the Loaded family, and its unlike anything else.

Loaded doesn’t redo their board lineup every season. They don’t even do it every second season. Its because they don’t need to. When you put years into prototyping, designing and then redesigning a board, it will be timeless. The Loaded Icarus is the latest board to come from Loaded, and its the next natural step after the dervish and tan tien lineage.

Its got curves in the right places for a ergonomic and comfortable ride. The construction is amazing (as always), and will keep its spring for years. Basically this board is the bees knees, will be great for pumping, carving and a bit of dancing too.

If you want to have more than just a pretty deck, here are some things we suggest to combine with the Loaded Icarus to make it a fun complete skateboard.

  • Zealous Bearings


    Steel Balls
    – Precision 8mm axle holes
    – .4045″ built in spacers
    – .5mm built in speedrings
    – Green rubber seals to keep dirt and debris on the outside of the bearing.
    – Lubed with Custom Nanoceramic Grease
    -The unique feature of the lubricant is how the nanoceramic compound fills in deformations or asperities in the bearing. These deformations cause friction and heat around them which hardens the nano-ceramic compound to that specific area. This micro coating is 5 times the hardness of the host alloy and has a molecular bond with the host metal, filling in all the asperities and eliminating friction over time.
    -The coefficient of friction is the lowest in the field of Tribology at 0.003% creating a near frictionless surface. Mainly because the nanoceramic compound eliminates all asperities.
    -Extremely low water washout
    -Corrosion on the inside of the bearing is nearly eliminated.

    Sold in sets of 8 bearings.
