The Powell Peralta Flight Decks have changed the way we think about skateboard construction. These boards are thinner, stronger and still maintain longer lasting pop than a tradition skateboard deck. Over the years skateboarders have been very resistant to any new deck technology, but we've seen sales of the Flight Decks steadily increasing!
How Are Powell Peralta Flight Decks Made?
They are made of 5 thin layers of hard rock maple, infused with epoxy and reinforced with a patent fiber on the top and bottom levels. As seen in the break tests above, they can handle more than double the load of a traditional 7-ply skateboard. Having the top and bottom reinforcement also makes these boards keep their pop a lot longer than a traditional deck that starts to feel soggy after time.
Where Are Powell Peralta Decks Made?
Flight Decks and regular Powell Peralta boards are one of very few skateboard products still made in the USA. They are hand crafted in the Powell Peralta factory in Santa Barbara, California.
