The moment we've all been waiting for has finally arrived. The Sector 9 Downhill Division Longboard Series has finally arrived on the shelves at Muir Skate! (We currently have the Lacey, Brandy, and Roxanne in the warehouse. We'll update when we've got the rest!) There are 6 boards in total, 5 of which are pure Canadian Maple and the 6th — Sector 9 Downhill Division's "Ginger" — is a club sandwich of Canadian Maple, Carbon Fiber and an attractive acrylic base.
For those of you not already familiar with this new downhill specific line from Sector 9, here's a very brief history lesson:
Started up in 1993, Sector 9 hit the scene featuring a handful of longboards designed for those of us with an interest in maintaining our sideways stances while we make our way to and from class, work, and wherever else we might otherwise ride a bike. Since then, the brand has grown to include many series of longboards intended for different riding purposes and constructed of different materials. A few years back, word had spread on various online forums about the "new Sector 9 downhill boards". These boards may (or may not) be the prototypes for the boards we see here today, but nevertheless, the brand started this project and let it unfold naturally and without rushing into production. The boards you will see on the site today are the result of this process and have been tested again and again by some of the finest downhill longboarders to hit the scene.If you're under the impression that the Sector 9 Downhill Division series will just be "the next fad" at your local surf/skate/board shop next to Hot Dog On A Stick, give it another thought. These boards are produced and distributed exclusively to only the finest downhill longboarding supply companies on the planet. There is no reason these boards should be taken (or ridden) lightly.
The Downhill Division longboards are all equipped with World War Era pin-up model graphics and quality titles to boot! If you'd like to learn more about a specific board, check out the descriptions contained within each Sector 9 Downhill Division product page at Muir Skate.
