Fast as a comet: comet longboards
Recently downhill racing has become a major component of the longboarding market. One of the very first longboards to be used well for speedboarding is the Comet longboard Voodoo. It was specifically designed and constructed for speedboarding.
The Comet longboard company started in 1998. Their goal was to build fast light and stable longboards. Their Voodoo board is a perfect example of quality and functionality which brand Comet offers to its customers.
This board is a high class product, the complete will cost you about 250$, and that is not cheap. However, they say you will never regret that you bought it. We tried out the longboard, let us briefly point out its main pros and drawbacks.
Before we get closer into the board’s specifics we should mention that the Comet is obsessed with environmental protection. They do everything they can to make their production earth friendly. Obviously, in trying to maintain environmentally safe manufacturing, the company has gone through various stages, falls and come backs.
The Voodoo has always been the standard of speedboards. It was first released in 2002 and was almost the same as it is today; it is only the materials may have changed as ecologically safe techniques were discovered. Currently the board is made of maple and biodegradable composites. The materials are made from natural fibers, such as flax, hemp, and bamboo, and soy proteins. The comet decks have an excellent concave with a perfect footbase pocket to hold riders feet. This board design has been accepted for over 6 years as a quality speedboard standard, a tendency towards designing earth friendly boards has only improved the Voodoo.
The Voodoo board constantly receives the highest scores from the reviewers. Its design is the most replicated by other brands. You can check out any company which is producing speed longboards and in their series you will definitely notice the influence of the Voodoo.
Back in 2002 when the Comet longboards created the Voodoo, they made classics at the same time. The strong impact of the Comet longboards will always be an absolutely perfect performance of the Voodoo in downhill skateboarding.
