A true quiver killer, the Keystone is a progressive downhill and freeride longboard that will take your riding to the next level. Constructed with a poplar core, triaxial fiberglass reinforcement, and carbon fiber stringers this board is speed stiff while remaining lightweight and nimble. Custom poured urethane is sandwiched into the layup of the board at the tip and tail to provide unparalleled shock absorption, protecting the core in cases of hard impact and preventing potential delimitation. The graphic is fully sublimated and infused directly into the thermoplastic base for vibrant long lasting graphics.

The Keystone Story
Garrett Creamer drew the first concept of a the Keystone longboard on the back of his history final in May 2014. From there the first prototype was created and Garrett along with our design guru Tim Mackey at DB Longboards have been reworking the prototypes for months now. We are finally ready to show you the specs and some more detailed photos of our soon to be released Keystone longboard.
The Keystone is a true quiver killer. It is a progressive downhill and freeride longboard that will take your riding to the next level. Constructed with a poplar core, triaxial fiberglass reinforcement and carbon fiber stringers, this board is speed stiff while remaining lightweight and nimble. Custom poured urethane is sandwiched into the layup of the board at the tip and tail to provide unparalleled shock absorption, protecting the core in cases of hard impact and preventing potential delamination. The graphic is fully sublimated and infused directly into the thermoplastic base for vibrant long lasting graphics.
"The main features to look at on this deck are the kicktail, the urethane impregnated nose and tail, and the W shaped drops that lock you in," Garrett said. "The kicktail just makes the keystone that much more versatile, whether your snapping your board up at the end of your run or kicking through campus it's great to have. The urethane nose and tail are nearly impossible to break, I have done extensive testing (READ: throwing it off of two-story decks or pile-driving it into the pavement). The drops combined with an extremely comfortable concave allow you to stay extremely locked in no matter the situation. It's a feather-light do everything deck, and the most durable in its class."
The shape and design of the Keystone was expertly engineered and refined in every way by our in-house engineer Tim Mackey alongside Garrett. Flat mounting options quickly transition into a unique micro gull drop that provides additional stability while also creating functional foot pockets to keep you comfortable and locked in on big slides. The effective standing platform has mild rocker throughout, adding subtle security to your stance. The design also prevents wheelbite without sacrificing structural integrity by incorporating composite reinforced machined wheel wells.
The Keystone is available in two variations to accommodate a broad range of riders: a 37” directional single kick and a 39” directional single kick. The functionality of the Keystone's tail adds another dimension to the board and makes it capable of extreme skateability in any situation. The keystone's versatility and durability make it the perfect default board for any situation.
