Quest Rorshack Bamboo Longboard Skateboard Review

Quest Rorshack brought a budget longboard option to satisfy the rider’s need. For a beginner or a quality deck lover, this one is a steal. Though it won’t be an all-round performer, I think it will be enough to go around.

You can get it with a very small amount of money and then upgrade it according to your will. We can’t really call that a bad option.

PROS

  • Hybrid bamboo and maple made deck
  • Kicktail available for easy maneuverability
  • Easy to slow it down
  • A good one for beginners, cheap option
  • Quality graphics work on the deck

CONS

  • The trucks and bearings might need changing

Quest Rorshack Bamboo Longboard Skateboard Review at a glance

Quest Rorshack hybrid Longboard can be a good option for cruising around or to start learning. The combination of maple and bamboo was used in an artistic way to build the deck of this board. They did everything right with the deck and that’s why it’s a piece of beauty.

Along with the deck, the manufacturer tried to put together quality parts that will be affordable for the riders. It’s a pretty cheap board, to be honest. The parts are not the best one to have but you can’t really ask for more in that price range.

This one is a viable longboard for beginners but not a good one for advanced riders.

Quest Rorshack Longboard: Deck

The best feature of this longboard is the hybrid deck. The deck is built using bamboo and maple wood together. The bamboo makes it more sturdy, light, and flexible. They also used multi-ply hardwood maple to make it invincible.

The bamboo is used in an artistic manner to make the deck more appealing. The beautiful artwork also makes it a good looking one.

The deck is 34 inches long, which is a little small than a standard longboard. So, we can call it a crossover between a Longboard and a Skateboard.

The deck can handle immense pressure so you don’t have to worry about your weight. It got a kicktail that will enable more maneuverability on your ride. Basically, every rider who knows about the longboard loves kicktail. It gives them great control over the board.

The deck of this one has the quality to impress you at first glance.

Quest Rorshack Longboard: Trucks

To handle the load they used 6 inch rugged aluminum trucks. The trucks are not the best of quality but again you can’t ask for more in the price range it comes in.

Some users complain about it being waggly. The best thing to do is to replace it with a better one if you can.

Quest Rorshack Longboard: Wheels

The wheels fall right into the standard longboard wheel category.  The wheels used in this one are polyurethane70 x 51mm wheels. The hardness rating for the wheels is 80A which is pretty soft. It will help you to slow down faster.

The manufacturer promised that the wheels will be a durable and top-performing one.

Quest Rorshack Longboard: Size

As I mentioned earlier in this review, it is not the standard size for a longboard or a skateboard. It falls right between them and that’s okay. It has plenty of space on the deck to stand on enjoy a stable and comfy ride. Plus, it is not so heavy, so you can carry it along with you anywhere you want.

NPET Pro Skateboard: Grip tape

There is grip tape available on top of the deck. But according to the users, it’s not up to the mark. It wears off very fast after using it for a bit.

Quest Rorshack Longboard: Bearings

The high precision ABEC 7 bearings will handle the speed producing part in this one. During my research, I got a lot of complaints about the bearings too. Another part of this board, you might have to upgrade on your own.


Should You Buy Quest Rorshack Bamboo Longboard Skateboard?

This one is for those who are looking for a cheap longboard option to start with. The deck and the price are the two best features of this one. I can’t really complain about it too much as it is not a $200 longboard. So, it is obvious that you won’t get all the best features stack together here.

That being said, if you can afford to do those upgrades or want to just use a longboard for casual cruising, then you can give this Quest Rorshack Bamboo Longboard a try.
