Syndex - Blunt Space

By: Keedan Mitchell  

Blunt Space

The blunt space is measured from where the axle of a fork would sit when installed, to where the bottom of the decks extrusion begins.
This space is important for 2 reasons.

The first, and most obvious, is the amount of room you have for nose blunts. A bigger blunt space means you have more room to land in and lock in to nose blunts. This is great for stalling them on quarter pipes, and grinding them on ledges that have a wide enough coping.
A smaller blunt space means you are more likely to be able to blunt slide majority of ledges and rails. This is because the longer the space is, the more likely it will hang over the edge of the rail, or hang over the metal coping on a ledge, causing you to grind on the concrete.

The second reason is that the longer your blunt space is, the longer your decks wheel base will be. Follow the link to know why the wheel base is important.
