Unless stated otherwise all of our decks are constructed of 7 plies of 100% American/Canadian Maple (wood species- Acer Saccharum) with skateboard specific glue made by Franklin. Occasionally and on specific request we use Bamboo, other veneer and exotic materials but the tried and true 7 ply Canadian Maple is by far our most popular construction.** Upgrade this complete with Performance components!
All BANNED skateboard decks are cold pressed. This method takes more time than a hot pressed deck but does not subject the wood to high temperatures that can weaken the wood fibers. The uncut decks are allowed to cure for 7 days in large stacks before finishing.
