Thanks, Ken. Great feedback.

Thanks for the feedback, Ken.

fyi, regarding the clown-like vibe of the graphic, we hear ya. That's clearly from the crop and color combo. That will be addressed.

I really dig this board!!!

I really dig this board!!!
For starters, it could/should definitely be a few inches smaller, this things a tank!

As far as for sliding, it is far superior to my mini shaka for foot space, concave, and having that locked in feeling. It would be nice to have a microdrop though just so that theres some sort of foot pockets so that you don't have to find exactly where you want to put your feet during various slides. 9/10

For downhill I haven't had much experience, probably around 35-40 tops, and it felt good. But again I would feel a bit more comfortable if there was some sort of space to put you feet while riding. 9.75/10

The W-concave feels perfect while riding, but all of my hills involve a lot of pushing, so maybe if it was a little wider and/or flatter...? Maybe even no W? 8/10

Overall, this things a tank, feels awesome down a hill both rolling and sliding. I would give it a solid 9.5/10.

I also like the Manifest as a board name. Makes the board sound just a badass as it really is!!

PS... a little more rocker couldn't hurt! :)

the concave felt primo but a

the concave felt primo but a foot stop of some nature would be sick. because while i was digging putting my feet right on top of the trucks and getting a lot of leverage it didn't really give me a locked in feeling that ive found with dropped boards. don't get me wrong i'm in love with the concave and am not suggesting a drop but if we could find a way to construct a foot stop the platform would be perfect. the shape of the kicks is nice and proportional in my opinion. however i do feel that their is room for an additional set of holes on the inside of the board. the graphic is DEFIANTLY giving me a clown vibe that is a major turn off. i would defiantly revisit the color scheme immediately

I think 2" shorter would be great and keeping as large of a wb (like 24ish) as possible with the smaller size( if that works), i think a little waist on it would look good. I love the kicks, angle and size are great, the concave is beautiful, right now it is the only dk I would dh on, the name manifest seems nice, and the graphic is "meh" I don't mind it

I think the cometogether

I think the cometogether graphic at the top looks better than the blue and orange one. It's simple and looks good

Rather than kicking the

Rather than kicking the allready selected bottom graphic and replacing it with the proto graphic, I think putting the current proto graphic on top would be better

That's fine but it doesn't

That's fine but it doesn't fix the problem with the current bottom graphic. Unless you were just thinking of a color change?

If we were going for the cometogether vibe thing, this graphic would have won if it were posted earlier, I think comet should put up three graphics, and now have the community vote, because more people were voting in the beginning, and just stopped at the end.

Try setting it to the actual "manifest" shape and wheel wells and such, it would portray better

Good ideas, Ken. We did a last call on voting and emailed all forum users and posted everywhere. Maybe next community design project, we'll run a top 3 voting round. Thanks.

btw, it would be rad to do something like Adam's mashup some day. In some ways, it reminds me of those limited run one-of-a-kind mashups that Kaya screened in 2012. Would love to see that again!

This graphic better win. i really think there should be a vote that has like the three best graphics: the one that is currently going to be the board graphic, this graphic, and another one that everyone likes. i think this graphic would really make the board have a community vibe.

Whaaat?! No Adam Favelas

Whaaat?! No Adam Favelas spaceman graphic?? Or even Abrahams tuck down to earth tuck? That's a real shame...

Well, those graphics simply

Well, those graphics simply didn't have the votes. It's time to move on. Such is life, eh? There will definitely be another community design project here. We're looking forward to it. The community will grow.

For those who have more thoughts on graphics -- even ideas on how we can run the graphics contest in the future -- please post to the Graphics topic:

For this "Testing" topic, let's get more feedback on the ride of the prototype. Thanks!

Agreed. The graphic really

Agreed. The graphic really isn't a big deal (on any deck for that matter) as long as the board itself is functional. And it is lookin good! Stoked on seeing its final release!

Also, we're stoked to see some shots of you shredding on a prototype!

Post a photo here or email team@cometskateboards.com. Let us know where the photo was taken. We're looking forward to getting some up on Instagram.

The wheel wells on the board

The wheel wells on the board have to be bigger, and the mounting holes need to be lined up better, because with tkps I get some bite, even when using a riser

Category: 

So far the only addustments

So far the only addustments that have really been said are 1-3" shorter total length and deeper/better placed wheelwells and I agree with both.

A cut out in the bottom to mount a gopro at the perfect spot would be a cool feature. Just sayin

So far I can't ride it like would ride a smaller dk (Noah sakamoto or shred 35) with one foot on kick thing which is good in ways that its a lot more "dh" able but is not as good when I feel like blunts,Ollie's,flip tricks and other kick needed activities while riding the hill

This Board Is AWESOME!

This Board Is AWESOME!

It's like the DB "lunch tray" and the Loaded "Tesseract" had A baby named "Manifest"!
The concave is wicked comfortable pushing, and riding at speeds. The wheel well flares
really help keep my feet locked in during slides. The kick tails are super functional and
awesome for plants and that kind of thing as well as ollies and shuv-its. The board is not really
to nimble, it has more of a boaty feel to it. My only complaint is that it could be shorter. I am not a huge guy
(5'10 120 pounds) so the board is a little much for my size. But all in all this is my new favorite board. Thanks a ton Comet! You guys really nailed it with this board!

I deffinetly agree with

I deffinetly agree with rkattmann, Im also a smaller guy and the board is a bit too big. But the concave is very nice for freeriding and dh. I think something that would be cool to offer is two different sizes possibly, one for people on the bigger size(39inch) and a size for people on the smaller size(37.5 inch or 37inch) and possibly different wheelbase sizes for the two different sizes.
