The Archetype is the bare bones of what you need in a symmetrical freeride board. It has an extremely comfortable concave, symmetrical rocker, wheel wells to satisfy the two mounting options and width where you need it regardless of riding switch or regular. The flush mount compensates for the rocker keeping your trucks at the angle they were made to be at.
The shape of most skateboards has been the same popsicle stick shape for more than twenty years because it is the most functional and was the inspiration for this board. From the first hand cut version by Anthony Flis through the extensive testing by Jesse Breiman (see Jesse's blog post) and others, we finally cut away enough fat to give you this awesome shape giving you the most purely functional board possible.

This board is really nice. There's not much concave but it you fit quite nicely. It has a little flex but nothing too bad. I love this board and is an excellent downhill and free ride board at higher speeds. Overall worth it.
Also my first archetype snapped after a car ran over it at 50mph and comet supplied a coupon,
Overall solid board and great company.
