On closer inspection, the LOADED Chinchiller stands out from the rest of the brand's boards primarily because of its size.
At 34" long, it could have been considered a very short board. But with the demand for shorter and shorter longboards to ride around town and touch everything, this was the first thing LOADED had to do. The Chinchiller 34 is compact, and as a result, its wheelbase is quite small (21") since the symmetrical deck leaves room for two kicktails. This is clearly a street experience, with a short deck that works both ways, and dual kicktails for tricks, bowling, or just Ollies to get past curbs and other manuals.
The deck has a slight rocker, which is great for foot-locking and getting in a few angry sessions without having to worry about losing control. The LOADED Chinchiller is also stable at high speeds, thanks to its shape, which also makes it easier to push.
As for the design and finish, as usual, we are not disappointed. With its composite construction: laminated bamboo core (vertically), sandwiched in a triaxial fiberglass and epoxy coating (bio), this LOADED Chinchiller is light (1.4 kg for the deck alone) while offering a subtle flex. And it looks great too!
