This board's deck is made from maple wood, without added composite materials. While this makes the deck cheap and light, it isn’t as durable as decks made with composite materials. It's still durable enough for most beginners, but advanced riders are better off getting a composite board. See More
There is no suspension system on this board, only a rubber bushing between the top truck and axle.
