Featured Artist: Sterling Bartlett
Operating out of his small apartment in Highland Park,Los Angeles, Sterling Bartlett is a long time Globe collaborator, artist, designer, bread baker and hot sauce maker. For this two-board series, Bartlett, hamstrung by coronavirus restrictions was unable to produce work with the aid of his local art reproduction house as he usually would. These limitations led Bartlett to employ a work flow inspired by the late artist Romare Bearden: Half collage, half painting.

Slant Reverse Kingpin Trucks
Typically used on models greater than 34” long. Reversible 50/54º hangers. 50º for stability at high speeds. 54º for tighter, more responsive turns. Drop-through trucks allow for a lower centre of gravity and more even weight-distribution across the deck, resulting in greater stability when skating at higher speeds downhill.
Globe's high-rebound urethane formulas are abrasion resistant, smoother, faster, and provide excellent grip. Standard on every complete, Globe Abec-7 bearings spin faster and longer which means less effort and faster.
As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of premium skateboards, we use a significant amount of wood in our production. In order to off-set the timber we use to construct our skateboards, our goal is to engage in forestry efforts that replace far more than we consume.
To that effect, we have partnered with the National Forest Foundation (NFF) to donate to their tree-planting program. Globe’s yearly donations to the NFF help plant more than three times the amount of trees we harvest annually in making our skateboards.
The NFF is a United States non-profit organization that launched an ambitious campaign to plant 50 million trees across public National Forests between 2018 and 2023. The NFF partners with the United States Forest Service to target National Forests impacted by wildfire, pests and other disturbances. Globe is proud to be making a contribution towards that effort.
