Rasta 22″ Penny Board Review

If you want a smooth mini cruiser skateboard with a classy look, the the Penny 22” Rasta might be what you are looking for. Penny skateboards are made of what the company calls a “secret plastic formula” that ensures the best ride possible. This plastic is strong and durable. It just wont break!

The Penny Rasta was made in honor of the greatest Rasta legends who believed in love, peace and equality. Penny skateboards are designed after the original skateboards of the sixties, giving them a vintage and pure look. The classy looking black deck of the Penny Rasta stands out even more with the yellow and green 3″ aluminium trucks. The contrast of the big bright 59mm wheels is just perfect to complete this board.

83A super smooth Penny wheels

These 59mm red wheels are considered as moderately soft. In short, they they will make your cruiser comfortable on a large variety of terrain. These wheels can handle cracks in the pavement and small debris, plus they are small enough to pickup speed rapidly. Paired with Penny Abec7 bearings this board cruises smoothly with a minimum effort.

3″ powder coated trucks

Made of high quality aluminium with pressed kingpin and 87A cushion set, these trucks are durable and can handle punishment! The trucks are powder coated with yellow and green. Quality trucks like these allow the Penny Rasta to be more responsive while maintaining stability.

What previous buyers had to say about the Penny Board?

I was nervous to buy it because I’d never ridden a skateboard before, and i was worried I wouldn’t like it after spending so much money on it.
Lemme tell you, I’m very glad I did.

They are over 52 customer reviews of the Rasta Penny Board on amazon.com at the time of writing and they had awarded the 22″ Rasta Penny board an average of 4.9 stars out of 5.

The customer reviews on Amazon are positive overall, but there is one niggling point raised by some customer. Although the 22″ Penny Board can reportedly handle riders weighting over 220 pounds, some customers with large feet complained about the small size of the board. Remember that this is a 22″ x 6″ mini cruiser board.

If you are looking for a larger cruiser, I suggest you take a look at the 27″ Penny Nickel.

However, no one else seems to have experienced other difficulties with the Rasta Penny. Other customers said

This skateboard was a huge hit with my friend’s son, and lit up his face for weeks whenever he took it out for a skate. And despite heavy use, it’s been holding up very well and is solidly built. This was an excellent purchase, as I am constantly reminded. :)

This makes it very easy for me to recommend the 22″ Penny Rasta as a mini cruiser board.

Conclusion

The Penny 22” Rasta embodies Penny’s ideals – fun, freedom and quality time with quality people.

It’s an authentic Penny, build with quality materials that will last for a very long time.
