2012 Lamar Cranium Used and Reviewed

Nivek Cranium no question. Actually a super fun board that's worth more than they charge.

Justin ya i know all the marketing says they are "low maintence", they are supposed to be easier to repair. If you have a sintered base just have it waxed everynow and then.

Some guys will argue that wax doesn't really help all that much and it may be true. But i find that it is nice to have it done/do it every now and then. I do it myself so i probably wax more then i need to, especially on my sintered boards.

calin.fleancu that is actually a very good idea with the stickers. That's why i was in doubt, because on paper the lamar really seems the better board.

p.s. regarding the durability of the sintered base, i never owned one, so the info was from the articles i read. :-??

Justin Sintered bases are more durable then extruded, they are harder. My extruded base boards get banged up faster than my sintered bases. make the choice on the board first. If you don't like the graphics just use lots of stickers.

calin.fleancu Haha. Actually that was the only review i found. I think it's quite comprehensive and useful. As far as the sintered base goes, for me it's not a big plus because it's less durable and it's high maintenance (and i'm not that much of a speed freak ).
The only thing is that i don't exactly like the lamar design. I find it to be a little childish :P. But it's true that the specs are superior.
Has anyone ridden any of them? My problem is that i'm quite heavy and i'm afraid that the sims would have too much flex.

bseracka Specs alone, the lamar is the better board for what you want to ride: sintered>extruded, triax> biax (for stiffness).
