Written on: 31/12/2010

When u first got a united skates conplete for 18 quid i didn't expect much anyway but i was dissapointed.
The deck is too wide,
the wheels are too wide,
the trucks are wonky and turn to the right,
the kingpin sticks out so don't even think about grinding,
the griptape wears out too easily,
it has no concave and the abec 5 bearings are terribly slow. i recommend enuff or flip… Read Full Review

I have a united skate board, it is the opposite to all of that apart from being slow and the grip tape wearing out easily. Its an alright board in probably getting myself a new one soon but its a very good starter board. The design on the bottom of my deck is a yellow racing car-not a very cool skater design! I don't really like it but i have learned to ride on it.

United Skates - All in all for £20 there's not much wrong with it but compared to the better boards it's pop is rubbish, the deck wood is soft, the trucks are wonkey, the bearings are ok if kept clean and the wheels are soft. Alright for a begginer setup… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/06/2005 by bonkers (2 reviews written)

I have got about 3 United Skates decks over the years and the first two were pure trash, but since I'm such a sucker for nice looking skate boards I got the new one which was the alien deck.
It flipped better and was no where near as heavy.

Best one yet… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/11/2004 by sir seymour (1 review written)

I got a United Skates board. It was heavy, it was thick, the trucks were rubbish, the bushings broke in 2 days, the wheels were rubbish, the bearings were very slow. My friend recently got a United Skates longboard. It was heavy, the trucks were alright, the bushings were pretty rubbish, there were no wheel wells so wheelbite was common, the trucks (now this is unforgiveable) were mounted wonky on the deck causing the board to always turn right. Now thats just poor workmanship… Read Full Review

“United Skates are good boards. ”

Written on: 12/10/2004 by monkey hanger (1 review written)

United Skates are good boards.
The trucks are well cool and abec 5 bearings are good, although I replaced them for abec 1 because I have only been skating seriously for 4 days. These are good to ollie on, I can already ollie a 2 set and in 4 days I am impressed with that. I think the graphics are cool, I got the rhino deck for only £20 quid, it's a good complete set up. I think there good but you know it's your choice… Read Full Review

Where to start!. The decks are too wide, thick, and heavy. the kingpin sticks out so you can't grind. the wheels are too chunky, and the graphics totally such!!!
They only cost like £30, but I wouldn't buy another one(buy an ELEMENT, or FLIP)… Read Full Review

United Skates boards are strong and durable and can last for a long time for beginners. There no good for intermediate skaters, they can snap very easily when ollieing or doing a kick flip and especially grinding. The trucks also come loose or too tight… Read Full Review

I brought a united skates deck the one with the rhino on it Has Very Good Convcave and it not to heavy but if you do big tricks like me this is not the board for you because it gets pressure cracks on the deck.

Its heavy,its wide, the deck is thick, the wheels are huge and the trucks are rubbish!!!Every time you tighten the trucks the hanger moves down and the kingpin sticks out! also the deck delaminates easily and gets preassure cracks, and while i'm at it, the bearings are slow and are made even slower by the wheels rubbing on the bottom of the deck!...oh yeah the grip wears out in no time, But if you are a beginner it is probably the best thing to buy so you can make your mind up if you even like… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/06/2004

United skates decks are good for beginners gut otherwise, rubbish.
<br>I have been doing kick flips and the trucks are about to fall off.
<br>The deck is too thick and chips too easily,
<br>Wheels are thick but are ideal for burning,
<br>Trucks fall off,
<br>Absolute rubbish.

The 'United Skates' boards are not too fab, but what can you expect for a £30 complete. I would not recommend them to anyone who is interested in taking up skateboarding as a hobbie, BUT! If you just fancy a skateboard you can store away and use every now and then, then this is the board for you… Read Full Review

I have had a united skates board for 1 year and i really like it. i think they are very very cheap for what they are because they should be worth alot more money. anyone who has never had a united skates board and believe they are rubbish, you are very wrong. Get one yourself and you'll understand.
