Change the way you ride. From freestyle to freeride, cruising/carving, and light downhill, the new Apex 40 DiamondDrop pushes the possibilities the moment your feet hit dat drop. With a new wider standing platform, more concave, added wheel wells, + deleted gas pedals, the reinvented Apex is your upgraded go-to.

Focused on freeride-freestyle, the DiamondDrop slides like a dream and keeps you safely locked in. Ride with confidence, pursue steeper hills and longer slides. A full drop (no-micro here) further steps up the Apex’s freeride / sliding game to create a clutch, symmetrical, double-kick deck that’s in tune with whatever you want to do with it. Beautifully thin, ultra durable and oh-so-low, the DiamondDrop holds it’s own as a commuter but still sports one of our favorite slide pockets ever. Perfect on so many levels.

Full Dropped low (0.925’’) to ease you into your biggest slides with seriously useable (1.25’’ high) double kicks to get you out of a jam or into the air, the Apex 40 DiamondDrop is Original’s freeride-freestyle flagship. Multiple mounting brackets key you into your preferred wheelbase making transitioning from freestyle to freeride and back, easy-steezy. Utilizing the 3 ply northeastern-maple, carbon-reinforced, 2013 fourth generation Original Apex construction, capped off with our new raindrop finish, and backed up by the innovative new PK noseguards, the Apex 40 DiamondDrop is our strongest, most beautiful, “do it all” board yet.

A unique kinky concave brings with it a sticky lock-in, while packing sexy grippable lines into every inch of the DiamondDrop. Subtle hard-angles bend and merge into perfection for an amazing soft touch, adding board-feel and slide control in spades, without diminishing the comfortable ride-ability the Apex has long been known for. The “Kinkycave” hour-glassed concave concept applied to the DiamondDrop allows the deep 0.66’’ concave to continue straight through a full 0.925 inch drop. In addition the Concave is deeper at the center of the board keeping the deck stiffer overall for freeride. Never before have we bent wood into such a deep concave, while also building in such a deep drop; that combination, with no pause in-between, is something different and unique to the DiamondDrop. Come experience a new look at the dropped freestyle-freeride landscape. Riding is believing.
