Designed by Richy "The Brown Bomber" Carrasco, multi-National Champion and 100 Cone World Record holder. The latest design features our newst M-Core construction and the classic Bombs Away graphic - paying homage to his early days with PPS. The Bomber is mid-sized for quick turning at speed and is ideal for tight, hybrid and some giant slalom with adjustable wheelbase options. Pressed from our Axe Series racing molds to achieve the perfect concave and foot wedge tail needed for effective foot placement. This deck offers control for cutting and turning at speed for max acceleration power and stability all the way to the finish line. The Bomber is a great choice for slalom racing, freeriding, long distance pumping - and can also be set up as a street cruiser by moving the truck location in rear and adding a tail skid plate.
