The 805² is a modern incarnation of a tried and true Voxel Board original design.
The 805² is pressed with a mini-sized kicktail, gentle wheel-flares and with a focus on a new mellow-cave philosophy. It’s a mini-kick which is a deviation from our full sized kicktail legacy. I made this design choice to give the rider options without completely shortening your wheelbase. The concave is similar to the Hustler, and has an hourglass-tub shape. The concave also features mild wheel flares to help with clearance and provide points of reference. This makes the board more suitable for a slalom style race deck with smaller trucks if that’s your preference, or a reasonably sized city slasher. It’s a smallish downhill deck with a baby kicktail.
Finding you need aggressiveness in your concave? We’ve got you covered, offering you our selection of 3D Printed Concave implants at a steep discount to bundle with your new deck. Concave implants are can be extremely advantageous; Their potential geometry is greater than what can be pressed into a deck in some cases and they’re durable but can be removed or changed to suit changing tastes. Griptape is included for free!

Pretty sweet deck, does everything that it says on the tin. I was talking with Shawn for a while about the 805 and after he described to me what it was like, I knew I had to try it. I’ve been riding it around for a couple of weeks now as a city slasher and definitely love how it feels for that role. The concave is relatively mellow compared to some other boards I’ve ridden, but it makes it great as a city deck since it keeps you nimble on the deck and I love the wheel wells; they’re pretty deep and well positioned and I have yet to get any bite. My only grip, which is a personal one is for a slightly more aggressive kicktail; its a little mellow for my tastes for something to slash around on, but I can definitely see where they were going with the design. It keeps the footprint small, compact, and it still does its job.
I’ve taken it for one small run and I like it for something small, the aforementioned concave is a little more mellow than I’m used to so I didn’t get that totally locked in feeling that im used to but at lower speeds it was a lot of fun, and I believe there are implants that you can play around with that can change the experience. I might order some and see if I can get a different feeling deck with them.
Overall, pretty sick deck, its built well, does everything you could ask of it, looks rad, and is a whole lot of fun. If I had to compare it to a deck, I’d almost say its like a Libido’s bigger, more fun brother but that would do the 805 a disservice because it is definitely its own board with a lot more to offer than something like a Libido.
