Deck Construction

Powell-Peralta® decks are manufactured in our Santa Barbara skateboard factory, which is still directed by a few of the same craftsmen that made them originally. Skate One designed and fabricated AirLam™ low pressure air bladder presses are used to laminate 7 plies of the finest grade American, hard rock maple, with high strength, water resistant glue. Each deck is then sealed against moisture with a water base acrylic semi-gloss finish. Silk-screened decks are given an additional coat of clear acrylic to add protection to the multi-layer ink coating. Powell-Peralta decks are precisely controlled in thickness for optimum performance and warranted against de-lamination for the useful life of the deck.

FLIGHT™ Deck Construction

Five years ago we set out on an exploration to improve the strength and performance of skateboard decks and to see what was possible. FLIGHT™ decks apply what we learned into making a superior deck with increased performance at an affordable price.

Built in a new production area in our Santa Barbara, California, facility, FLIGHT™ decks are stronger, thinner and lighter than a 7-ply. You'll get the feel of it in an hour or two and begin to realize you can do things riding a Flight deck that cannot be done on a 7-ply. Flight decks allow you to extend your limits, because they let you ollie higher, flip faster, do tricks more easily, and they don't break in two like a 7-ply.

FLIGHT™ decks are:

  • Thinner - as thin as your phone
  • Lighter than a similar sized 7-ply
  • Stronger - more than twice as strong in our tail break tests
  • Longer lasting - The epoxy infused, fiber reinforced structure of the Flight deck is extremely resistant to breaking, and this structure gives Flight decks "everlasting pop" that doesn't fade as your Flight deck slowly wears.
  • Ollies higher because of greater rebound and snap.

Team testing suggests that Flight decks will last several times as long as a 7-ply, making them a great value as well as a superior performing skateboard.

Deck Concaves

SP2 Concave

Spoon Nose II, A re-issue of the classic Powell-Peralta® Golden Age mold we made the original Bones Brigade’s decks from. Features a spoon nose kick tail with slight concave on the kick tail intended for making 10" x 30" style decks.
Maximum wheel base—17.25 inches. Non-symmetrical nose to tail.

K12 Concave

A double kick nose with extra deep concave that adds significant stiffness to a deck. This allows us to reduce a K12 deck’s thickness and weight without losing pop and response. It also features a steep, flat nose and tail.
Maximum wheel base—14.50 inches. Non-symmetrical nose to tail.

K15 Concave

Consider this an upgrade that replaces the K10 concave. A double kick nose with deeper, smoother concave, longer wheelbase, concave kick on nose and tail and a scoop tail for a more secure foot placement without feeling trapped. A big boy version of the K12 allowing all terrain ripping with the stability of a longer wheelbase. Less wheel bite because the steeper concave goes out to the edge of the board.
Maximum wheel base—15.75" Non symmetrical nose to tail.

K16 Concave

This is like our K12 with a shorter wheelbase for smaller skaters.
Maximum wheel base—12.25 inches. Non-symmetrical nose to tail.

Wheels

Park Formula

Powell-Peralta Park Formula is unsurpassed for skateparks and ramps, providing extra grip on smooth surfaces and twice the life of ordinary wheels, no matter where you ride them.

Street Formula

Our Powell-Peralta Street Formulas are high performance, state of the art, high rebound urethane. It is outstanding for street.

All Terrain Formula

Powell-Peralta All Terrain Formula is a special, soft 80A, poured on a small hard urethane hub to keep your bearings in place, give you the softest ride possible, and maximize speed and roll. This formula will out perform and out last traditional soft wheels, so if you ride where hard wheels don’t make sense, these are the ones to get.
