The « Clermont » longboard model

Elegant design associated with different types of wood from trees grown in the Vallée de Joux region, the « Clermont » longboard from Muse Rolling is hand-made, primarily using wood from maple trees. At the technical level, the deck’s double concave shape has a specially designed directional form, an anti-wheelbite clearance above the wheels, and a cut-out for the drop-through axes.

The wooden core is reinforced with bi-axial fiberglass fabrics. For optimum stability, there are four layers to give the board a total thickness of 13 millimeters. And to ensure solid all-round durability, glueing and pressing are done using a specific process – exclusive to Muse Rolling.

The board’s beauty lies in the sober and discreet design of its marquetry made out of wood from apple-, walnut- and maple trees. This applies to both sides of the board.

A layer of rough grip material is applied to the deck’s wooden surface. It provides the shoes with traction and prevents the rider from slipping – even in wet weather.

With its exclusive materials and particular shape, the longboard offers a true feeling of fluidity and flexibility which is simply out of the ordinary.

The brake system

The brake system is built with a very high degree of precision to ensure rider safety in any situation, regardless of slope, temperature or weather.

Its stainless steel parts provide durability and reliability, whilst the combination with aluminum allows the whole assembly to remain light. Screws and bolts are also made using stainless steel.

One of the « Clermont » longboard’s key elements, the brake system has more than 30 different parts, each of them machined, assembled and mounted to achieve the high degree of performance demands set by Muse Rolling.

The rolling system

The rolling system allows fluidity of movement, providing riders with the feeling of flawless gliding.

The wheels are from the American brand Orangatang. They run on top-of-the-line ABEC-9 ball bearings and are mounted on precision turning skate trucks that connect the wheels to the board.

The chosen rolling system best suits the « Clermont » longboard. Not only does it ensure smooth, turbulence-free cruising, it also enables accurate turning and improved safety in rainy conditions or when crossing slippery tramway tracks. In addition, a soft finish provides stability and comfort, whilst the high quality of the wheel and bearing assembly offers effortless travel compared to using a trolley scooter. The rider can almost feel the board’s acceleration.

Depending on personal preferences, wheels are available with different degrees of hardness.

You hesitate ?

Here you’ll find the answers to all your questions.

Why a break system on longboards ? Isn’t this against the very purpose of skateboarding !

It’s first and foremost a question of safety. Our longboards are not intended for competing or for riding under extreme conditions. Muse Rolling targets users who look for an alternative way to move around the city; e.g. going to the office. Longboards from Muse Rolling are perfectly suitable for the urban environment where there is a constant need to slow down or to stop promptly, thus avoiding accidents and / or falling. In addition, a braking system helps preserve your footwear.

Why is your longboard not electrically powered ?

Why spend unnecessary energy by adding electricity ? Muse Rolling promotes soft mobility to help preserve the environment – the exact opposite of using electricity that involves energy consumption from a battery with all its chemical components and recycling challenges. Moreover, an electrical system adds unnecessary weight to a longboard, not to mention that there always is the risk of sudden failure, as well as the need to be able to re-charge the battery… which requires you to have the appropriate charger at hand.

 

Muse Rolling’s Thierry Nicloux, who has tested electrically powered longboards, is of the opinion that they are not reliable enough. But this does not apply to the « Clermont » model which uses the most basic, simple and essential approach to longboarding. No wonder that Thierry has a favorite phrase he uses often : « Save kilowatts, spend calories. »

 

Last but not least, electrically powered trolley scooters and skateboards slowly but surely invade the cities, prompting administrations to prepare for tighter controls and regulations.

Is your longboard not too heavy ?

On the contrary, our longboard is much lighter than a trolley scooter or an electrically powered skateboard. In addition, each « Clermont » model is delivered with a convenient carrying bag for ease of transportation.

 

When riding, the 3,5 kg weight of our longboard ensures good stability and constant speed, letting you experience the pleasant feeling of gliding.

Is your longboard easy to maneuver ?

Its ergonomic form and shape are the result of months of intensive studies, careful design engineering and cutting edge manufacturing to ensure optimum mobility.

 

Muse Rolling’s virtuoso wood craftsman who is in charge of producing the « Clermont » longboard model, has not only been responsible for its design, he has also improved and optimized the board itself over the course of many years. His skills and extensive knowhow make your skateboarding trips pleasant and easy.

Can your longboard also be used by beginners ?

Admittedly, if you have never been on a lonboard – or a skateboard, for that matter – then it is the same as with any sport’s activity ; you need a few “good moments” of training to get accustomed.  For particularly cautious beginners, we have developed a “stick” that easily attaches to the longboard, allowing someone to learn how to stay balanced and how to maneuver smoothly – before being able to experience the pleasure of gliding freely.

What are the advantages compared to a trolley scooter ?

Trolley scooters are in use for years already. Over time they have been altered, enhanced and upgraded to make them suitable for practically everybody. With our « Clermont » longboard, we address a select group of avant-gardists ; innovative people who want to be seen as forerunners of soft mobility… people who look for alternatives… people who want to stand out.

 

Technically speaking, using a longboard allows the rider to keep her / his hands free ; e.g. to carry a bag or a parcel while riding. There also is no need to hold on to the longboard when standing still. Most importantly, however, with the « Clermont » longboard you can move around like Zephyr, and you can do so with almost no effort. In addition, with a different rolling technique then the one used for two-wheeled trolley scooters, the rider can almost feel the « Clermont » longboard accelerate… all by itself. Fortunately, there is a brake system to slow down. It is also worthwhile mentioning that tests have shown that whilst trolley scooters need 3 to 4 kick-pushes, just one is enough for our longboard.

What about balance ?

You obviously need a bit of training if you are not accustomed to riding a longboard. On the other hand, finding your balance will be quick, because a longboard has a more stable design and it has a wide deck.

 

Moreover, the skate trucks with the wheels are adjustable in hardness, providing the rider with even more balance and better safety.

 

Of course, the amount of time it takes for the user to feel fully comfortable is dependent on each riders’ personal ability.

 

For particularly cautious beginners, we have developed a ”stick” to hold on to that easily attaches to the longboard. It provides riders with better stability and more balance during the learning phase.

 

Do note, however, that if you have used a skateboard during your childhood, adopting a longboard is like riding a bicycle ; you won’t forget !

How do you explain the cost of your longboard ?
