After several years of development, P2 (Pro-2) construction has been created as the next level in skateboard decks. P2 technology includes an oval-shaped [Kevlar] fiber reinforced maple veneer, which enhances the natural performance and pop of its supporting six, thin veneers of maple. The oval shape of the Plan B Sheckler Geo P2 Deck is designed to spread stresses and loads throughout the entire deck, versus around only the areas closest to the trucks. The P2 construction provides exceptional added resilience to the deck creating a “Spring Loaded Pop” effect. P2 decks are thinner and lighter than old-fashioned 7-ply wood skateboards. The Kevlar fiber used to make P2 decks is expensive stuff, but “Spring Loaded Pop” is priceless.
Silver M-Class trucks optimize turning ability with a refined structure and distinctive contours. With the Silver M Class Trucks you’re getting a perfect amount of ground clearance, an exceptionally strong construction and dynamic components that contribute to the overall quality, stability and smoothness of the M-Class. The performance level of the Silver M-Class easily meets and exceeds the high impact demands of a skateboard truck.
The Bones STF Rat Pack Wheels are specifically formulated for what you skate. The Rat Pack Wheels are made with the Bones Street Tech Formula, giving you more slide-ability and way less flat spots. Made in the U.S. at the Bones factory in Santa Barbara, California, the Rat Pack’s are skater engineered and designed.
Bones Super Reds Bearings are designed from the ground up to be the best bearing on the market at this price point. What Super Reds are not, is a Reds bearing with just better super finishing (surface polishing). Super Reds are a superior quality precision ground bearing, using higher quality steel races, better quality and grade balls, and a superior surface finish. The result is a bearing that is as fast as Reds, but quieter, smoother, and longer lasting. Super Reds use a black shield and laser engraving to differentiate themselves from original Reds.
The Diamond Hella Tight Hardware comes in a set of 9 total bolts. 8 black bolts, 1 gold bolt and 8 silver nuts. Includes diamond chuck tool. Hella tight. The Grizzly Bear Cut Griptape is classic Grizzly Grip. It’s Ggrrrrr-izly.
