The Special T is the brainchild of Taylor Jensen and chief Firewire shaper Dann Mann. The premise of the board was to create a traditional nose rider which benefits from todays construction technology. It's a straight cruiser, a board wth ultimate style and perfect for summer slop. Taylor had the idea from one of his Dad's longboards from back in the day and he wanted to create that style but using Firewire's famed TimberTek technology. Timbertek is made using a EPS core, Paulowia wood and Entropy bio resin, all of which are better for the planet than tradtional PU/Fibre glass constructions. Timbertek is light and durable but it also allows for a little flex too, so it's perfect for boards of all lengths. If you are concerned about repairing a Timbertek board, well don't worry, you can repair it with epoxy as normal.
