2017 brings a welcomed update to one of King Lui’s most popular rides, the Wachter. Translated as The Guardian, new features include a drop-thru/topmount option, shorter wheelbase and a double-kick on either end. Designed with freeride in mind, the Wachter’s symmetrical shape work keeps you comfortable in either direction.
The King Lui team added a tail on either end for a little extra fun – kick it up on a curb, nose manual or a just dance a little. The updates make the Wachter more versatile for rider’s who like their boards to do a little of everything. Other new features include a double micro drop and just a bit more than a 1/2″ of concave. They’ve removed the rocker on the drop-thru version so ride height should be just right. It weighs in at 4.5 pounds with a wheelbase of 25.5 inches.
King Lui expects the drop-thru version to be available in roughly two weeks (beginning of April) but the top-mount is still in development. Hit the link to visit King Lui and check back here for more news when the top mount is available!
