NEW IMPROVED BONES SWISS LABYRINTH BEARINGS
Bones Swiss Labyrinth Bearings are improved.
New, Bones Swiss L2 Bearings feature a new shield that reduces drag and increase the overall speed of the bearing. The Bones Swiss L2′s have a new, redesigned inner race and two new labyrinth shields to keep the dirt out longer, but still allow easy maintenance when necessary.
If you ride Original Bones Swiss the only difference you will notice is that the L2 Swiss will last several times longer between cleanings. This significant increase in service life comes at a very small increase in retail cost, so the value is greatly increased.
The new redesigned inner race and new shields build upon the success of our original Labyrinth. They do an even better job of actively dispersing dust and dirt away from the interior of the bearings.
As you can see in the images there is a step on the inside of the new shield and a new designed inner race.
In the split drawings, you can see our Original Bones Swiss has a non-contact shield and our original standard inner race, while the L2 has new shields and a new, redesigned inner race. When we combine the two new parts we are able to create an amazing labyrinth-type barrier.

The Fattail was designed for pumping, carving, pedestrian slalom, freestyle and generally any situation where lively, energetic lines are on the menu. You may never reach for your downhill board for those late night parking garage sessions again.
FeaturesIncreased concave locks your feet in against g-forces, while the topmounted and cambered platform provides energetic performance in and out of each carve. The width of the deck has been redistributed while maintaining subtle tapering near the trucks to provide both ample leverage and awareness of foot position while powering through turns. The formerly vestigial tail has received the silicone treatment for improved functionality in both freestyle tricks and surf-style shredding. The Fattail is also equipped with a slight nose kick for manuals and shuvits.
DesignArmed with more sophisticated modeling software and improved experience in conceptualization and testing methods, we were able to fine tune the Fattail's shape and contours to ensure more consistent flex characteristics throughout the entire length of the standing platform when using either wheelbase. We kept the camber of the original Pintail, increased the concave and added a nominal nose kick and a full (if chunky) kick tail.
ConstructionA vertically laminated bamboo core is sandwiched between fiberglass skins. The tail is reinforced with an additional layer of fiberglass (top) and carbon fiber (bottom) for added stiffness and abrasion resistance. The bottom is finished with a bamboo veneer with a die cut water droplet pattern, which is filled with transparent urethane and a “floating” graphic to give a sense of dimensionality.
Carbonized BambooSince 2006 we've been devoted to using primarily “natural” bamboo exclusively in all our boards because natural is cleaner, right? Wrong. In late December 2010 we discovered that the “natural” bamboo we've been using actually involves a low toxicity bleaching process. The Fattail is constructed with a carbonized bamboo core (a cleaner process overall) and marks the beginning of our transition to carbonized bamboo in general for our lineup.
