Hybrid longboards feature wheel cut-outs on the board. Because the trucks are mounted in a Drop-Thru way, they are mounted on the top of the desk. This way, the wheels are closer to the board and cut-outs on the board prevent the contact between wheels and the board. Thanks to Drop-Thru truck mounting, the stability of the desk is increased.
Hybrid longboards are somewhat shorter than other longboards, which helps the rider to do tricks similar to those on a skateboard. Hybrid desks are suitable for downhill ride, freeride or carving.
