The most common place for a skateboard to break is the area where the trucks are screwed onto the skateboard.This is because all of the pressure from a drop, is going onto one small area of the skateboard. Almost want to change that! The double impact skateboard deck series is a series of skateboard that have carbon discs around this area. They also have a full carbon top sheet for extra power and protection.
I was looking at a skateboarding shops website and I came across these. As I had just recently broken my skateboard in the truck area, I decided to get one. It cost £59.99 at the time. This is still the same. I think that it is an extremaly reasonable price seeing as it lasts about twice as long as your regular deck and is also extremaly light!
When I was first unpacking the deck, I started to think that it might be some sort of gimmick but I soon changed my mind as soon as I started to ride it! It rode beautifully. It had a mellow concave and a regularly steep tail. It suited me perfectly! When I was unpacking I also noticed a guarantee. It is a 45 day guarantee that covers all damage to the carbon disc area. It does not cover any other damage which is understandable.
The board lasted me for about 4 month which for me is a long time as I skateboard at least 3 times a week. The way it eventually passed away was I did a trick, slipped of the back and the board rolled away into the road. It was snapped clean in two. I am pretty sure that if this didn't happen, it would of lasted a few more months are the pop was still great and there was no cracks or chips any where.
Overall, I would recommend this skateboard deck to anyone. Well worth the little bit extra cash.
