Continuing the evolutionary legacy of the Fish and Ceviche, the Poke is the newest performance-driven stage of a timelessly delightful tradition from Loaded. Featuring highly functional kicktails and a comfortable platform with concave, rocker, and wheel well flares, this versatile city commuter keeps up with your every whim and makes each outing a creative, dynamic adventure.

As several prototypes were tested it became clear that even unidirectional change wasnt enough. On one hand, we wanted to see the genealogy of the Fish and Ceviche take a new yet familiar form as a pumpable, agile, and trick-capable city commuter with just the right amount of flex. On the other hand, we also lusted after a stiffer, street-ready, double-kick with inclinations toward freeriding and technical sliding, which, as you may have guessed, materialized as the Kanthaka which was released in late 2012.
Rocker & Concave: 0.1" of rocker and 0.5" of radial concave in the Pokes standing platform complements the subtle flex of the board and allows you to sink into a comfortable hammock-like interface for both leisurely and aggressive riding. Aggressive enough for spirited performance riding yet comfortable enough for the casual commute or boogie through town. The rocker helps freestyle tricks feel more natural and also creates a solid platform for pushing and commuting.
Wheel Well Flares: Slight concave flares on either end of the standing platform provide tactile reference for your feet, allow for increased width without wheelbite, and lock you in for quick manoeuvres with a high level of board awareness.
Kicktail: The Poke sports an ample tail for assertive surf-style slashing and plenty of freestyle trickery. The kick angle has been designed to facilitate a snappy and functional pop.

The Orangatang Stimulus wheels feature an offset design and a relatively wide contact patch for grip.

Stone ground surface for consistent slides out of the box and more consistent wear over the life of the wheel.
