Five years ago Powell Peralta set out on an exploration to improve the strength and performance of skateboard decks and to see what was possible.
“This is not some half baked come back or a come back at all, it’s a homecoming. I’m not delusional, today’s youth are tomorrow’s am’s, pro’s & future stars. But I’ll always be an ambassador of urban transcendentalism & skateboarding and am proud to be doing that with @powellperalta. Its an honor!
Special thanks to my long time friend and mentor @stevecaballero & @peraltastacy for believing in me when I was a boy! You guys changed my life for the better!” – Salman
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.
