A suspension system built to absorb the road and give you a smooth, surfy ride like no other
From our Riders
Thanks to the Cruz Control community and our Kickstarter backers, we're able to get our BoostPlates all over the world - check out what some of our riders had to say about the BoostPlate Suspension System
It’s extremely smooth on rough surfaces, which is something I immediately noticed. I live in an area with really, really bad roads and I’m very impressed with the board’s suspension ...
Whenever I’m riding the board, it feels the same way that I imagine the hoverboard from Back to the Future 2 would feel. It’s floaty, smooth, and is a head turner for sure"
- Sam P
"One of my most unique boards of all time! This board is one that all my friends want to try just because of how different it looks. The smooth ride combined with nice turning makes for an awesome ride."
- Ronnie R
"Our roads out here don’t get that much attention so when I do get to go out and cruise - I really appreciate how the board soaks up the road ...
It’s a really smooth comfortable ride and if you do want to pop an ollie or two it feels like a literal spring beneath your feet."
- Caden, D
BoostPlates are mini suspension plates, like leaf springs in cars, made to absorb some of the shock from the road and give you a smoother ride. With the deck suspended above your trucks, it gives you fluid transitions between turns - different than just pivoting around a traditional bushing.
These spring plates are formed and heat treated to always spring back to their original position. This gives the board a spring-loaded feedback that compresses and releases with all of your movements.
We supply a drilling template and drill bit in our BoostPlate Suspension Kit to help you add new bolt holes on your board. These suspension spring plates can be added to any deck and truck setup, and we recommend using a higher quality deck to ensure you have a solid ride overall with this new system.
We've added BoostPlates to a ton of different decks and trucks to create truly unique ride experiences. Check out some of the funky setups that people like Braille and ShredShack have put together:
Our decks are built with custom bolt holes and mounting setup to fit the BoostPlates right out of the box. 100% Canadian Maple, hand crafted with 8-plys to give you a durable complete setup. We use 9" retro-style trucks with a carvy, high profile design and barrel bushings for added stability.
We've tested and stand by all of our components to give you the best possible experience on our completes. We've designed and hand picked parts that compliment the smooth cruising and surfy ride of our Suspension Cruisers.
The BoostPlates add a 1" floating zone between the deck and the trucks. This allows the suspension spring plates to compress and release, absorbing the road and flexing with the rider's movements.
This isn't a like a traditional cruiser or SurfSkate - the pairing of a smooth ride and fluid turning is a different kind of ride. We've been told it feels like "somewhere between a surfboard and a snowboard", letting the board feel like an extension of your body and giving you feedback on every turn. The floaty feeling of riding on suspension spring plates mimic that buoyant force of water pushing up against your surfboard, an experience that is unique to the BoostPlate system. This isn't mean to be a surf trainer, but the fluid transitions between pumping and carving just create a fun experience like no other.
