You’ll find a boundless assortment of decks with various widths, shapes and constructions in the skatedeluxe online shop.
Classical Maple vs. Newest Technologies
The classic skate deck is built of seven plies of maple wood, bonded with epoxy resin and pressed together under high pressure. The wood of the maple tree has stood the test of time in regards to stability and flexibility for skateboarders as well as for manufacturers. But over the years, other manufacturing and processing methods have been developed to minimise the weak spots of conventional skateboard decks. That includes the P2 construction which enables a higher rebound.
Size, Shape and Concave
Your height, shoe size, surface area and your personal preferences will determine which deck size is best for you. Sometimes you need a slimmer deck and sometimes a wider. It’s up to you, if you prefer skateboarding in the streets and parks or if you love to run riot on transitions, gaps and ramps. Decks not only differ in size but also in curvature. A distinction is made between low concave decks, which enable an easy board control, and high concave decks which, provide the best flip behaviour. The medium concave deck with middle cambering is a great in-between choice. Besides the symmetric shapes of most decks, the newest trend is wide, asymmetric decks like the decks from Welcome Skateboards. Transition skateboarders, get stoked!
Deck Design: Ridable Art
Brand designers always give their best when crafting new decks. Take artists like Timber! and Todd Francis, who have immortalized themselves on skateboard decks. Team riders also lend a hand in creating their signature decks and are able to design them freely like the Comic series from Almost. This way, you get the most exceptional graphics on your decks. That includes the morbid designs by Creature, the funny graphics from Deathwish or the unique artwork on the decks of Palace, 5BORO and 3D Skateboards – every skateboard deck is essentially ridable art under your feet.
