This has been in the works for almost 2 years now and I’m excited to finally share the first pictures. The first couple of samples should be arriving within the next week. Once I can confirm everything fits (or find the only possible bug, which could be the truck plate fitting), I will be moving for the first bulk order, which should arrive no longer than 1 month from now. My manufacturer is fast and reliable on their time estimates.
This deck was created from the same ideas as the first deck I made my self.
I have tested this design myself and my first deck has lasted over a year and a half with very minor wear and tear, over 2000 miles later with hummie aluminum version, then hummie steel, then carvon v2, and now hummie v4’s. The design is quite strong, but will confirm the wood they used is just as strong.
Decks are 100% Russian Maple, not cheap china maple. Why Russian Maple? Maple grown in colder temperatures grow slower, creating a denser and stronger wood. China Maple is grown in warmer temperatures, and thus, why it is often weaker than Russian or Canadian Maple.
This deck is 41 inches long by 10 inches wide. For the samples, the pockets were 22mm deep, 70mm wide, and 558mm long. For the preorders and first batch of boards, the pocket will be 22mm deep, 85mm wide and 650mm wide.
Fit up to a 10s5p or 12s4p 18650 or 21700 (specifically made for the new Samsung 30T cell) or 12s 8Ah zippys.
This deck is ready for 2wd or 4wd. The reverse recession is designed for use with Paris trucks (The same ones used for all hummie motors, including the new v4’s). You can bottom mount other trucks (as I did with my carvon v2’s in the past). Designed with hummies motors in mind, but can be used for any motor setup.
Theres 3 places to run wires between the 2 pockets. One on each end for the battery wires, and one in the middle for balance wires.
Price will be $180 USD + shipping, which is a great deal compared to chaka’s hollow core decks at $500! Includes: Deck, Lid, Screws, and Screwdriver.
Even a regular professional long board will run you $120 + $40 - $60 for an enclourse + $5 for a screw driver + $5 for hardware (so $170 - $190).
The board does look a bit thick, but it’s still cleaner and thinner than a deck + bottom mounted enclosure. When seen in person, assembled, the board does not appear as thick as it does in photos (so I’ve been told by others on here).
Yes, there are a lot of screws. But once you assemble your deck correctly, you should not need to ever take the lid off again. A small battery powered screw driver can be purchased for around $10 USD also on amazon if you want to speed up the process. I like hand tightening them to prevent over tightening and possible damage to the lid.
