Jean-marc Johannes tests out the new Almost “Uber Light” deck, the most technically advanced skateboard deck in the world.
Limited to 500 worldwide.
Deck inside a Deck: This was developed by Rodney Mullen and C.L Composites. After experimenting with many different layups, they arrived at a method using an actual deck within a deck. The internal carbon fiber foam deck is ultra light and nearly as stiff as metal. It acts like rebar, or a skeleton embodied by a standard 7-ply layup. It also vastly improved the lateral rigidity. The deck wears, slides, and looks like a normal 7-ply, but its lighter and has a supernatural pop last lasts far longer than any normal deck.
Balance is at the very heart of design in anything that spins, flips or flies. By reducing weight and adding rigidity (particularly laterally), the deck reacts more quickly to every movement while flipping faster and more precise.
