The Sector 9 Drop-Thru Bamboo Lookout II Complete offers impressive performance for cruising alongside the beach or freeriding through the town.
This new version of the Lookout smashed our expectations by significantly improving on the previous Lookout.
Great All Round Trucks
This board comes with the 10″ gull wing charger trucks which offer an awesome balance of stability and flexibility, making this board a breeze to ride and carve on.
Keep these trucks tight and you’ll be able to go bombing downhill without any fear of speed wobbles.
A smooth ride is important to me and this bamboo deck has a slight flex which absorbs most of the vibration and bumps in the road and sidewalk. The deck has enough flex to feel like it has suspension, but still has enough rigidity to support the weight of a large adult.
At 9.6 inches wide this board feels stable and is easy to control downhill. Those of you with larger feet or beginner riders will appreciate the extra foot space on this deck.
An All Rounder
At 42 inches in length with 78A wheels this board is a great all rounder. Whether you enjoy cruising, downhill or freeriding, this board has something for you. The only activity we’d suggest avoiding on this board is slalom as it’s deck length is too long and the wheels are a little large for that.
Beginners will find this board a piece of cake to ride on thanks to it’s large board area and high stability. More experienced riders can test their borders with some extreme carving or bombing downhill at high speed.
