Rimable Skateboard: Complete Review of Rimable's Drop Through Longboard
Rimable is one of the most reputable longboard brands out there today, and for good reason. Rimable was actually one of the first brands that I picked up as a skater, and I still use it to this day! Rimable boards are always of the highest quality and design, and also provide such an enjoyable ride! Today I’ll be going over 3 of my favorite Rimable boards, and show you why these boards are so popular and enjoyable to ride!
Things to consider with Rimable skateboards and Rimable Longboards?
Who is Rimable?
Rimable is a company based in China, that makes a large variety of transportation from roller skates, scooters, all the way back to Rimable Skateboards. Rimable is not just a longboard company, and don’t really have that many boards at all. But I assure you, the boards they have are top quality from the Rimable Longboard Pintail all the way to Rimables' famous Drop Through Longboard, you can be sure the boards they have are very good.
Assembly can be a real problem for some people, as assembling any sort of board can really be a struggle and a pain. Luckily, all the following boards come Pre-Assembled, ready to ride which is a huge plus, because a skateboard assembly can take hours to perform, and to be honest everyone wants to ride as soon as they receive their fresh new board!
When looking at a board, you have to see what stage you are at, and what stage the board recommends. From my experience with the three boards, I would say the Rimable longboard pintail was the more advanced board, so if you’re an advanced rider, I would definitely recommend checking out that board.
But not everyone is advanced, we must all start somewhere. The other two boards, The Rimable bamboo drop through board and the Rimable 22 Inch Skateboard, are both very beginner friendly and will provide a great base for riders. But these two boards are also good for an even advanced rider, so if you're looking for a good enjoyable ride, check these boards out.
Keeping your board in a good state is always one of the highest priorities, and the Rimable boards definitely help you keep your board in good shape. Obviously, if you just leave your board to collect dust, it won’t be in good shape, so making sure you clean your board is important, and here are some tips on how to do that.
Water on boards is really, really bad. It causes the deck of a board to warp, and sort of deteriorate. This won’t be a problem for plastic boards such as the Rimable 22 Inch skateboard because the board is plastic, but the bamboo drop through longboard shouldn't be in the water, as the bamboo can get warped. So making sure you leave your longboard under-covers and not riding in the rain (which is dangerous, don’t do this) will keep your longboards' deck from warping and deteriorating.
Dirt on grip tape can also be a problem when dirt and muck start to pile up on grip tape, your grip on a board will become less and less, making it harder to ride. Getting some dirt on your board is impossible to avoid, and will happen; making sure you don’t let this really pile up should be a priority. If you do get a dirty board, check out our guide on How to keep your board clean!
What are you looking to achieve?
Listen, Rimable is a good company and do provide good beginner skateboards and good beginner longboards, but if you’re looking to really get into downhill tricks and freeride, these boards are not optimal. These boards are good if you’re just looking for a hobby, or just looking for a mode of transportation. These boards are perfect from getting from point A to B but really aren’t optimal to really do any more than that, which is understandable for the price point they stand out.
RIMABLE Bamboo Drop Through Longboard Review
The Rimable Bamboo Drop Through Longboard is the first of the three boards I will go over within this article. This is a drop through longboard, meaning it has a lower deck to normal. This allows for better cruising, as you are able to keep a steady push. The deck is probably the strongest point of the board, as it is created from a combination of Maple and Bamboo, allowing for a sturdy deck.
The artwork is definitely something that can catch the eye of an onlooker, and can even be the difference between a board you’ll buy, and one you’ll skip past. Thankfully, this longboard does have really nice artwork on the bottom, and the top of the board is quite slick. The longboard’s outwork isn’t over the top, it’s slick and very neat.
Grip Tape is probably the most under-appreciated piece of any board, but It definitely should be looked in to. The Grip Tape is High-Quality OS780 Grip Tape, making it sandpaper-like, allowing for a better grip and more durability. This allows for a better stance on your board, allowing a more comfortable and enjoyable riding experience.
Wheels are the bread and butter to all boards, and the Rimable Drop Through Longboard is no different. The wheels are rated at an 85 A level combined with the size of the wheels that comes in at 70x51mm, meaning they are quite hard. These types of wheels are bad for faster riding, but if you’re just looking for a calm cruise or just ride around town, these are perfect as they easily go over cracks and harder terrain such as gravel etc.
Overall, this board is a classic. Coming with some of the nicest artwork available, combined with a great sturdy deck and hard wheels, you can expect a nice and relaxing ride.
Rimable Pintail Longboard Review
The Bamboo Pintail Longboard made by Rimable and is personally, the best Rimable board out today. The variety of things you are able to do with this board, and most of the parts of top-notch!
The Deck of the Original Pintail Longboard made by Rimable is very interesting (in a good way). The deck has a Hybrid of Bamboo and Maple, creating a stable yet flexible deck at the same time. The Pintail of the board gives more control overturning, allowing you to perform some tricks that the other Rim able boards aren’t capable of doing. This deck is really satisfying and sturdy, allowing you to feel safe when riding.
The artwork is something that really stood out to me on the Rimable Longboard Pintail, is embraced the surf and skater life, creating a really eye-catching graphic. Art peeling of a longboard is also a huge problem on some boards, as after you ride it a few times the art will start to peel, but not on this longboard. The Artwork is Heat transferred into the deck, assuring the art on this board won’t be peeling anytime.
The Bearings on this board are some of the best I have seen! Normally, I would recommend replacing bearings as most companies bearings are under-par, but these bearings are great. The Bearings are lubricated, allowing for a fast ride!
The Wheels on this longboard are the exact same to the Rimable Drop Through Longboard, and those were great. They allow for smooth and steady cruises, and because of their size, it’s easy to go over bumps!
The Trucks of the board are perfect, as they are able to support the bamboo deck, allowing for more weight capacity on the board. The Trucks are aluminum and are allow a really clean turn on this board.
Overall, this board is definitely the best Rimable board out today, with its artwork embracing the skater life, it will definitely catch your eye! The Trucks accompany the deck perfectly, and the deck is sturdy yet flexible. This board will provide an excellent experience for all riders, and we 100 percent recommend it!
