Manual Ramps are a company from Brazil producing great wooden ramps similar to the Blackriver ramps. Their website design is great and the products look really cool judging by their quite professional photos. With all these companies popping up, it’s hard to keep up!
Looking at their home page, we see some new products underneath a slideshow featuring an impressive “Manual skatepark”, so quickly, excited me, I go searching for this park! But first, I want to get a glimpse of the new ramps looking quite similar to the Blackriver ramps. Ranging from $23 to $60 dollars, and from 43 to 120 Brazilian Real.
The three categories or their products are: Ramps, Vertical (?) and Street. And then under the “Categorias”, you see Manaul Ramps listed as the producers. This gives a hint that they might be selling other manufacturers’ ramps later on.
Under the “Ramp” category, there is a solid looking Half-pipe. With the price of $60 dollars its not a quick choice. But, we gotta give it a chance, right?
Next up is the “Vertical” category. Aaaaand why the fuck is there the same “Half-pipe” from the previous category? We also see the “Mini rampa” and the “Micro ramp”. I don’t think this needs any explanation. They go in 10 (Brazilian Real) increments decreasing from the original “Half-pipe”.
Hoping for something exciting, we go to the “Street” category only to find three ramps: their “kink-ledge Manual”, “Mesa pick nick Manual” and the “kink-ledge2 Manual”. All is basically obvious, except for the price. Wtf why is it so high? The product better be good! Judging by the pictures, they do look good and sturdy… but it may be photoshop ;P
Where… is… the Manual park!!! I had my hopes up so much :’( Oh well, all that is left of it is the mysterious picture:
… and picture like these that make me want to check on new things with this company:
I will be looking more at their company and trying to find more stuff to write about them since it honestly does look like a company worth looking into. Be sure to check out the Manual Ramps website out!
