Why not put in some ethos

Why not put in some ethos style grab bars

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!

I love the new dimensions, but im curious what u like better in the preproduction model

I really just liked the looks

I really just liked the looks of the kicks in the preproduction. Just the way how it got narrower towards the end. the final CAD makes the kicks look fat and stubby. both the final and preproduction wheelbase, concave, and length sounded great.

I redrilled mine to a 22.5"

I redrilled mine to a 22.5" wb and honestly it makes it better, the kicks become these massive flaps that pop like mad and the shorter wb makes techy slides way easier (like no comply checks and stuff)

What trucks are you riding on

What trucks are you riding on that wheelbase? I haven't redrilled mine, but I'm considering it for exactly what you've mentioned!

My proto warped and I'm honestly disappointed in the quality of this board, 3/10

Anything out of the ordinary

Anything out of the ordinary (aside from warp) as far as the construction is concerned?
Warpage is a bummer, but in many cases it's preventable or at least somewhat delay-able. (Is that a word? It's early...)
Earthwing's got a guide on their Tumblr for de-warping, if you're interested.

Jw but how would someone get their hands on a prototype?

I'm really interested in what

I'm really interested in what the graphics gonna be on the production model, the last I saw was the clown looking archetype graphic thing, oh and if there are gonna be any other changes to the newer specs that I will add to the post. Also I feel as though the w could really be completely removed, making it like a full inch of rocker would be sick. I've already been talking the board up using the name manifest and the only comments on the name have been positive.

I'm loving the final board,

I'm loving the final board, it's pretty rad, the only issue I've had is running tkps(indy 169s), but fixed it with a little redrilling so that it lines up better with the wheel wells. Overall it's awesome, the concave is prime, the kicks functional, and the graphic is bangin! This board will definitely be a top seller in 2014

Joan I agree with you. The history of skateboarding runs back years and we are here to see this sports being played in a completely new form, which is cool actually. I covered this to my blog http://www.essayarsenal.co.uk but there are several points that talked about new trends in the sports industry. Thanks Joan. Peace.
