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.

Cool idea! Wish it came up

Cool idea! Wish it came up more in the initial discussion. To keep this community designed, we'd want to have at least have put this question in the test pilot survey. In fact, ideally we'd want to have included it in the proto so we could ask how they should be tweaked rather than "Do you want grab bars added?" It can be tricky to add a whole feature like that into the last design iteration. Regardless, thanks for the continued ideas. Good stuff.

I have been riding on the

I have been riding on the board for 2 weeks now. I have really been enjoying it! I can almost say that this is one of my favorite boards I have ever ridden! When I first found out that the board was going to have W concave I was a little bummed because I was not a big fan of W concave and I love comets classic concave! When I got the board and got it all gripped and went out to ride it all my doubts were put to rest.I The W really helps a lot with toesides,you can really just push your foot up against it. It also locks you in when you are going fast. I went about 40 mph on this board and I really liked pushing my back foot up against the W, it gives you a really locked in feeling, and it also is really nice for predrifts. I really liked this board for freeriding your feet really feel locked in when you are doing fast freeriding, toesides power slides and heelside power slides are money on this board. Along with the W the symmetrical shape is great! For all you W concave haters you need to give this W a try and your mind will be changed.I think that the W concave should defiantly stay!

I am 6 feet tall and the board is the perfect length for me. I wanted to get a different opinion on the size so I had a friend who is 5'8 ride the board just to see how he felt about the length and he loved the length,I don't think that the length should change but, if it does it should only by an inch or and inch and a half. I really like the length. I previously have been riding a Grease Hammer, I love that board and I really like the 26 inch wheelbase that it has, so switching from the Grease Hammer to this board was great. I really like the other wheelbase options I have tried them all out and they all feel great! Since you can adjust the wheelbase you can also adjust the size of the kick tails. I really like the kick tails they are just the right size for all kinds of flip tricks. I was doing Ollie's,shuvits, and kickflips easily. The board was not to big for all these tricks.

I'm really stoked on this board and I can't wait for it to be released for everyone to try out! I'm also really stoked that I had the opportunity to prototype this board! You guys are great comet! Keep up the great work!
