Quest Brand Overview
Quest is a company based in LA. Their boards, however, are “Made in Mars”. At least, that’s what they say.
In fact, Quest stands behind the quality of their boards. They have this quirky “alien” company culture that makes them stand out from the crowd.
While other companies take components here and there and put them together, Quest makes all of their products from scratch. Yes, every single component. They understand what you ask for when you spend your money.
Working with the pioneers in skateboard, snowboard, and surf industry, Quest designs and makes boards with fresh graphics, artisan wood, and excellent performance.
Quest says that “Life is a Quest. Enjoy the ride!”. We think that’s a very cool slogan!
As you’ve probably already known, skateboards are mostly used to do tricks on. Your regular skateboard will measure somewhere around 33 x 8 inches. That number varies depending on the brands and models you get. The width range is around 5 – 8 inches and the length is 30 and above.
Because of the deck width, the truck width must also be made accordingly so it best fits the board. In simple words, the full truck width is the same as the deck width. You’ll typically find the width measured in mm or inches. This can be confusing at times.
Some measure the truck from the hanger start to end (excluding the axles) whereas others measure it from axle to axle. For example, a 180mm truck is actually a full 10-inch one. But, you won’t find such wide trucks on most skateboards.
