Hi guys. I want to put some info on my XL Decks in one place to make it better for everyone with questions about it to find answers.
Let’s start The XL Deck
This is an off road style deck with a big camber and angle tips specific to be use with Channel trucks, the riding style on this type of deck is similar to an snowboard.
This is a full synthetic deck made out of Carbon Fiber, Basalt Fiber, Fiberglass and secret sauce epoxy to have the best strength to flexibility ratio while preserving structural integrity.
This are the dimensions of the Deck.
It will be available in 3 different Flex varieties.
SOFT Super bouncy and fun, perfect for Riders up to 150 pounds.
MEDIUM This version can be compare to a Vanguard Flex-1 deck but a bit more stiff, perfect for Riders up to 180 pounds.
HARD This version is recommended for those speed demos (yes! YOU )and is recommended for Riders 200 pounds and up.
Beside the default versions , later this year, upon request will be available a XL-PLUS version that will depend on the Riders weight, foot stance and another changes that can be made specific for the customer.
The CONCAVE I’ve chosen an Tub Concave for this deck, it is a FlatCave/Gaspedal combination it is similar to a Progressive board, but instead of a gentle curve, the rails extend at an angle from the deck. This Tub boards will keep your feet flatter, which makes for a mellower ride, but the sharp rails will provide anchorage for sudden shifts in energy.
The combination of FlatCave, GasPedals and Angle tip provide instant feedback to the rider on where you are on the deck without the need of taking your eyes off the road, making it easier to change the position of your feet and stance without loosing concentration, after a while this feature become second nature.
Besides the different Flex type also will have 2 choices of concave angles to accommodate most riding preferences and styles, let me elaborate on each one.
- Racing Concave This is a steeper concave design to aggressively lock your feet into position providing support for hard maneuvering, turning and off-road fun, is meant for more experienced riders with well develop lower leg muscles.
A side by side picture, The top deck has the Racing Concave.
- Cruising Concave From the picture above, it is the Concave on the bottom deck. Developed with less aggressive riders in mind, super fun for long rides and lost of smooth carving to just keep surfing that endless WAVE .
Still both type of concaves will be pretty stable at high speed and super fun to ride also the deck visuals will be the same.
Almost can’t tell which is which.
The Left one is the Cruising concave.
The Decks are design to be paired with our Channel trucks ( more info on this later).
For the trucks we have pre-drill holes for INNER & OUTER spring position pairing this with our softer springs and hollow dampers ALL riders can customize the turning ability to your specific preference and riding style. No more stiff truck to go fast or soft trucks to go slow, just properly tune equipment and GO!
