The Stoke: The Tan Tien is the quicker more nimble version of Loaded's cult classic dervish. Its smaller geometry allows for twitchy turns in a nice light weight package.
The Grit: Tan Tiens and Dervish's are not exactly intended for downhill speed boarding, but that hasn't stopped any one from bombing gnarly hills on them. Check out the Tassaract for more comfortable ride above 25mph.
Driven by progressive longboarding as explored by Loaded's riders, the Tan Tien manifests the desire to develop new tricks and engage new riding styles. From its foot-locking concave, drop-through truck mounting and pumpable camber, to its responsive nose and tail kicks, the Tan Tien blends carve-oriented longboarding with advanced trick riding. The complex contours create a super responsive board that allows for increased confidence when leaning into turns, popping tricks, and powering through slides. With its centrally driven graphic and functional grip design, the Tan Tien is easy on the eyes. But you'll need to ride this board to truly fathom its potential.
