About Quest

Created for the one and only purpose of making the best longboards for users. The company has slowly gained its reputation as one of a few brands that value their relations with loyal customers. In additions, they’ve also made a name for themselves among skateboarders for making the most amazing cruisers and bombers.

The name Quest has always been known for providing products with superb craftsmanship and long-term quality. Most of their products come with relatively reasonable prices and are packed with impressive features along with stylish looks.

Ever since their first debut, the company has always focused on delivering the most reliable boards for their customers. Start with making a few standard longboards, they are now producing one of the finest longboards in the market.

Notable features

Deck

Most of their boards are made of high-quality maple wood using the multi-ply technology. This ensures the boards remain responsiveness while still relatively durable and strong.

One thing that I really like about Quest skateboard decks is their relatively broader width. This allows for better standing on the board, a feature that all beginner should look for.

However, this feature would also make it more difficult if you’re into doing tricks, especially those that involve spinning your deck like kickflips and so on. But since you’re still a beginner this wouldn’t have too much of an effect.

Truck

For longboard trucks, we would want them to be relatively large to prevent the wheel bites. And Quest has done a really good job at providing reliable trucks for, not just their own longboard lineup, but also longboard from other brands.

Moreover, they’re usually made from high-quality aluminum which allows for reliable skating experience while remaining relatively lightweight. This also contributes to the speed of your longboard if you prefer downhill racing.

I always prefer the plain shiny steel looks that most Quest longboard trucks feature instead of the flashy and colorful ones from other manufacturers. They’re simple but will do their job just fine. Not to mention that this also helps to cut costs for those who’re on a budget.

Bearings

From my previous experiences of using Quest longboard bearings, the company has always surprised me with its large collection of different bearings. With a huge lineup of high-quality bearings for the different price ranges, you should have no problem finding the right component for your boards.

Wheels

Quest skateboard wheels are always made from high-quality polyurethane. They feature a broad selection of wheels with different sizes, harnesses, and textures. Most of their longboards feature tall wheels with large profiles. This helps to provide better cruising experiences as well as making your board immune to rocks and pebbles. The thick wheels also enhance your stability while standing on the board, but it would make your board relatively heavier.

Color and design

The company prefers to keep its coloring simple and shift their focus more into the product’s quality. However, Quest longboards still come with relatively captivating looks. Not to mention that the color quality has always been impressive. Their printed graphics can withstand serious wear and tear without being faded. All you need to do is choose a design that fits you.
