PAUL PRICE ROADSTER

Post by Donald Campbell » Mon Apr 11, 2005 11:00 am

don't mention the website,it will happen soon.
we are so crazy,we only test and develop and race.
the world needs new and innovative stuff.
paul took some time from his busy schedule off to develop the outline for his roadster model,the mould will be cast this week(shaped by steve,who has rich surfboardshaper background),the first roadster will be done end of this week.
this will be the craziest,but most fundctional shape you guys have ever seen in your life.
it will also feature most of the innovations we made during the winterseason.
made out of canadian hard-rock maple,high density foam-core,aerocraft fiberglass and epoxy,carbon fibre-this board will sport in form,function,concaves,the really latest improvements that are available on the market.
the board has an aggressive,very responsive flex,no sag,a pumping-weapon,plus you'll have
loads of traction and control on this deck.
no more need for those shitty toe-stoppers,hahahahahaha
i'll post pictures immediately,once the beast is ready.
please stay tuned for more info end of this week,hopefully...
thanks for all the interest and numerous e-mails,i received so far-nobody will be disappointed.

prototype Roadster deck

Post by Paul Price » Tue May 10, 2005 3:24 pm

I am happy to announce that I am now riding for the Pavel Racing Pro Team.

Pavel is a well known-name in European skateboarding. Pavel has long been famous for its hard-core roots. Now its cutting edge use of new technologies and innovative design will put Pavel on the slalom racing map.

The new Pavel "Roadster" Paul Price model is close to being perfected. I am very excited about the board, which I designed with sports car influences rather than the traditional surf board shape and its non-functional narrow tail. With lots of input from the Pavel team of designers and builders my vision has come to life!

It is wider at the rear for better grip and acceleration and has wheel arches for power and control. The concave and spooned nose give terrific front foot-hold and the width at the rear and kick-tail make for some super rear-wheel drive power. Pumping this board is amazing. This combined with high tech construction techniques make for a light-weight fast board that is like nothing you've seen or ridden.

Hope you like it!

It's always interesting to see new shapes. I'm curious about the kicktail you mention. Your rear truck is mounted pretty close to the end of the tail. Does the upturn start before that point? Do you have any photos that show the deck from the side?

kicktail

Post by Paul Price » Wed May 11, 2005 1:38 am

Well spotted! It is a prototype! Yes, after this photo was taken I moved the back truck further forward and wedged it more so it is negatively wedged. So now the trucks are positioned like a normal set up, but the kicktail acts like a wedge to keep that back foot locked in.

Interestingly, I raced Snowboards in the 2001 FIS World Cup and these race boards have a huge wedge under the rear foot, like a reverse gas pedal. It means the response going from toe edge to heel edge is that much quicker. Same idea here with the slalom skateboard.

Sorry Heiko, but with a baby 3 months in intensive care (she is OK now) and working for only $7.25 per hour for the resoert to keep my visa, I will have to leave you and Vincent to battle it out for Europe's top Amateur spot :(
I am saving my pennies for Morro and will be on my own shape torsion core deck by then, apparently it eats bamboo.... :)

I finally got photos of the mark II protoype Roadster.

It features more concave, flared wheel arches and a carbon look, but is already being improved to have more concave, a smoother foam transition and more agressive styling!

The next improved Mark III board has just been completed in the Pavel workshop.

This board is like any fast sports car; lightweight, perfectly balanced and lots of rear wheel drive power from the wedged tail.

Note the metal Roadster badge near the rear truck.
Image

This photo shows the wedge tail and concave spoon nose.
Image

Here a rear view shows off the dewedged rear truck (and more nice graphics)
Image

And heres another sort of truck - my Toyota Surf - note the Pavel wheel cover.

Ooohh that board is looking nicer and nicer every time i see it, i want one!

(no offense meant at all , but looking at the shape from the side [middle picture] reminds me of an insole for a sneaker, a really BIG sneaker!)

Maybe thats why the feet feel so comfortable on it!

Well Donald brought the latest Paul Price model Roadster prototype to Switzerland and its just getting better! Thanks Team Pavel! www.pavel-skates.com

The new board has got really steep concave on the nose. Anyone who rides concave pool boards will feel at home on this board. The steep tail means kick turns are possible. I rode this board at Watlington Skatepark too.

I really like the new Turner-like finish, the foam under the carbon is now super curved and flowing. I like the custom badges.

Image

The wedged rear truck can be seen here -


Image

A nice view of the outline, note you can see the front wheels when you ride it - car type roadster badge is a nice touch

Image

The car like wheel arches over the wheels hold your rear foot in place (and are very sexy)


Image

Want more concave?

Image

You got concave!!!

Thanks to Donald at PAVEL http://www.pavel-skates.com for finishing the latest refinement of the Roadster design.

The concave has been optimised and the finish is truly excellent. Get yours now!

The roadster concept is like that of the LWS sports car, light weight, good grip and rear-wheel drive. Think of the classic roadsters like the Lotus Elan and Jaguar XK120, and more recently the Mazda MX-5 .

For more on the roadster concept see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roadster

The concave gives good grip for the feet and the tail and flared wheel arches means maximum rear foot power for brutal pumping acceleration.

Image

A good picture of the concave and steep tail to hold the rear foot in place under power

Image

The unique design of the flared wheel arches means it's wide where your feet go

A sleek finish matches the beautiful lines

Paul,

I've been exchanging emails with Don about your deck. A couple of questions. What's the wheelbase and is there any camber to the deck. I'm just about to pull the Paypal trigger to buy one.

Gary,

The latest Roadster dimensions are:

Length: 30 1/4"

Width: 9" front and 9" rear

Waist: 8 1/4"

Concave: 1 1/4 ", flat centre section

Wheelbase, two standard settings:
inside truck bolts 18 1/2" (47cm) for tight slalom
There are extra holes drilled at the nose to give 19 3/4" (50cm) for bigger courses.

Of course you can drill more holes in the front to customise your wheel base. The front
has a big enough area to make setting the front truck distance easier to cater for varying
courses.

I was travelling to a lot of races this summer and had only a 15 kilo luggage allowance
with the cheap airlines. So I took the one Roadster and was able to move the front truck
for tight and giant courses.

The board has a slight camber and flex, but overall the chassis is stiff with concave under
the feet to better transfer power from the rider's legs and feet into instant turn response.

You will need wedged riser pads under the tail to get the correct balance between the
front rear truck height. Most pros find a wedged front and negatively wedged rear give the
best car like steering. That is, the front turns more than the rear for a fast, controlled path
through the slalom course you are racing.

I hope you like the board! :-)

in Valdez, Alaska for the most intense snowboarding of my life. Being dropped by helicopter on the steepest terrain rideable was fully scary and totally fun at the same time.

Then back in London we had rain for our Wasteland race, but it stayed dry for the European events - A 4th in Paris was a great result for me. Then some more fun was had in contests in Hannover, Grunigen and Riga. Sam Gordon was travelling with me and has got faster since he is now on Pavel boards.

It was great to see Ella from London win on her Roadster at Riga!

Last weekend my 1st at the Bude British Championships was another excellent result for the Pavel Roadster.

Managed to get in a quick weekend of surfing in Newquay and one of summer snowboarding on the glacier of Les 2 Alpes in France.

Thanks to Donald for advancing the construction and finish of the Roadster deck, at one of our Thursday night slalom sessions at Hyde Park in central London we had no less than seven skaters riding the Roadster boards!! Everyone who rides one seems to like the concave and width at the tail.

Heres a pic with us outside the Queens Arms pub, with Kate our barmaid doing a Daisy from the "Dukes of Hazzard". That's the Roadster sports car - the inspiration in the design of the Roadster skateboard back in 2002.

Hi Eddy, Thanks for the generous words.

I hope you like the board and have a chance to ride at Christmas.
All the Airports in London have been closed the last few days due to heavy fog. Travel chaos!
I hope to see you at some of the races in the US next year :-)

Paul the board has a killer design. Once again I had to add a Gunner to the collection. Why because you said to look at the new pimped up website. Sneeky mate, sneeky. I know the Pavel GS, The Roadster and the Gunner will all perform well in 2007. Here is hoping me knees will hold up. Your Amigo Eddy Texas Outlaws.

I really like Paul's roadster. He let me ride one of his own board in Latvia and Sweden in 2006 as I brought only one slalom board.
Eddy, you'll probably also like the Gunner, the tail is quite similar, but the board is longer so it's perfect for hybrid and work great for giant.

I love my Roadster...Don drilled mine further back for the rear truck and it is simply awesome. So much power, control and quickness compared to anything else I have ridden.

Now I just cant wait till my custom GOG with a kicktail arrives...
but then Ill have to order another Pavel!!!

Ok dudes I ran the Roadster through a tight tech course tonite. Fxxk the board Freaking Rocks. I had shaved Avalons, but will be shaving some Hot Spots soon. And my Radikals. Quick synopsis. It lives up to its name, it is quick, goes back to center very fast, agile, enough room for my size 12 feet. I left the course with a smile. Nice design Paul. Great work Don. I can not wait to ride it again. Unfortunately it started to drizzle. What can I say I am STOKED!!!!! Your Amigo Eddy Texas Outlaws.

Eddy, I am really glad you like the board! It does seem to work and at a race in London last month I counted over 8 people carving up the course on Roadsters.

Check out the photos and video: http://www.ukslalomskateboarding.com/

It just makes sense to have concave and a wide tail under your feet. Seems like a lot of other boards designs are following the trend. I hope to get over to World Championships this year as well as a load of European races. 2007 looks like being a good year.

Donald from Pavel built me a new board last week, its in Kuro black and the quality and finish of his work gets better and better. They are all handmade and seem to come alive near cones!

Paul ...that's killer, in more ways than one. The setting is cool, but the contrast in a BADASS set up, background by historic scenery is Sweet!!!!! Martin, hope all's well! Paul, You da' man!
ENJOY!! (while you can)

Thanks for the kind words Dave, and good advice I might add.

The Roadster design, inspired by sports car shapes rather than surfboards continues.

The latest board in Kuro black is influenced by the 350z
