The Mata Hari is Loaded’s latest take on the freestyle dancing longboard. A topmount, symmetrical board with mellow but notable concave and large steep kicks, the Mata Hari is significantly more compact and lightweight than its predecessors.
||27.25″ – 29.25″
The Mata Hari is compact with a lightweight composite construction, with big angled, street-like kicktails for strong pop, and mild rocker and concave for a comfortable yet trickable ride.
Loaded’s recommended setup includes Paris V2 180mm 50° Raw trucks and Orangatang 65mm 80a Fat Free wheels, assembled on the middle wheelbase option.
Regarding wheelbase, the outer (longer) option provides more stability and walking room, with a little more flex for carving. Starting with the longer wheelbase allows you to shorten it later to make up for worn kicktails.
The inner (shortest) wheelbase option is best suited for aggressive freestyle, adding pop and reactivity for kick flips and tricks, and a stiffer flex for hard landings. The middle setting is great for a mix of dancing and freestyle.
