Deck rails not only protect your skateboard from chipping and cracking, but preserve the graphics on the bottom as well. But the most important function of deck rails is your improved ability to slide on any surface. Whether lipslides or boardslides, rails give your slide tricks stability and control.

Having entered the skateboarding scene in the 80s, deck rails offer another advantage in addition to protecting your board. Boardslides and lipslides glide further and faster than with a skateboard without deck rails or deck ribs. Some rough surfaces aren't suited for slide tricks and are just waiting to bring your deck to a halt. Deck ribs make these surfaces slideable with little or no wax.
Customize your skateboard with deck rails
Deck rails are an absolute must-have, especially for bowl and transition skaters. Having trouble sliding around the corner of the bowl? Do your slides come to an abrupt stop on the coping or ledge? These are all problems of the past when you equip your deck with rails. It even works so well that some just install one rail to avoid sliding too fast.
Not only is the slide ability improved, but the rails also create a flat surface on the bottom of your deck, giving you more stability when sliding. You can easily order deck rails online from top skate brands such as Santa Cruz, Powell-Peralta, Pig and many more in the skatedeluxe skate shop. Would you love to have longer slides but deck rails aren't your thing? Then you should take a closer look at slick decks.
In addition to various graphics and stickers, deck rails are another way of expressing your personal style. These plastic skateboard rails are available in different designs. From simple black or white rails to bright colors, patterns and unusual embellishments, there's almost no limit to deck rail designs. Add them to your skateboard setup and give it additional protection and better slide capacity.
Deck rails are very easy to install. The required screws are of course included. All you need is a screwdriver or a power drill. While the deck rails can be attached quicker and easier with a power drill, an ordinary screwdriver also does the job. Where you install the ribs is a question of personal preference and is often based on experience.
