DB Longboards Robot Special Mini Edit and Price Reduction

We just released a brand new mini edit of team rider Spencer Smith on the Robot Special. Fellow team rider Michael Thorson captured and edited this rad little edit. We also just reduced the price of the Robot Special and you can now snag a complete for $219.95 and a deck for only $119.95. 

More about the Robot Special 

Most boards that have attempted similar concepts in the past have been only asymmetrical on one side of the board, forcing riders to use different decks dependent on their preferred stance. The Robot Special, on the other hand, delivers a bi-directional design that is suitable for both goofy and regular riders alike. Specific sides for your toes and heels provide an ergonomic design that will prevent sore feet while bestowing maximum leverage. Just in case this is a bit tricky to remember, the bright geometric graphic features a very functional reminder of which direction is goofy and which is regular. So why is the bacon concave on the toeside? Your toes are well supported by angles that would be uncomfortable to have under your heels. With the concave on the Robot Special you are able to dig into heelside turns and have a higher toeside edge to hold you in. Conversely, when you lean toeside you'll be able to get more leverage over your board. The back pocket is designed to be comfortable for predrifting and keeping your tuck in the perfect position.
