Five years ago we set out on an exploration to improve the strength and performance of skateboard decks and to see what was possible. FLIGHT™ decks apply what we learned into making a superior deck with increased performance at an affordable price.
Built in a new production area in our Santa Barbara, California, facility, 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.
About Powell Peralta Flight™ Decks
- Light and Strong Review by Joe
I was a little skeptical to try this board because I skated other brands with similar technology that are very light weight, but not that durable. The Powell Flight deck is better than the competition being both light weight and very strong. I skated this deck about two dozen sessions with minimal damage, just cosmetic really. It feels as crisp as the first day I rode it. (Posted on 4/12/2017)
- Great Deck, even thou it was mishandled during S&H Review by J
This is the closest deck to the one used by mcfly on back to the future movie! It's so light and strong, I fell the love already for the flight type of construction. Mine particularly came with little signs of delanination on one rail, and it seemed to me that maybe the carrier dropped some other heavy package on top of mine and it kinda chipped a bit and showed some small sign of delamination. I didn't realize until I was to put it thogheter, I got it round 11/16 and sat on the closet for all this time waitin for my older setup to be smashed to death, i wanted my flight deck shaped and I only got to grab a 8.5 popsicle which was my current serio at the time so I decided to kill that one and then use the trucks for my new flight deck. That's when I realized about the small damage and decided, oh well if it breaks due to delanimation or manufacture issues Powell has got my back!!! I set it up, did a couple of grinds and fs Indys and suddenly smacked it with a freaking obstacle and made a lil chip on one side of the nose!! F.ck!!! I almost cried, everyone in the park came and had a look and held my shoulder, everybody in my park is just in love with the deck, and can't believe that it pops so high and it's light like a feather!!! Please re-stock some fresh ones soon (Posted on 4/5/2017)
- Believe the hype Review by ian
Totally amazed and satisfied with this deck. And just like another review I read, I too am eagerly awaiting the restocking of this board. I'm buying one for one of my younger buddies who breaks decks. I'm 6'/ 240lbs and have no issues with flex. Flips fast and pops unreal. People constantly stop me at the park to check it out. So nice (Posted on 1/4/2017)
- Perfect Review by Andy
Everything about this deck is perfect. It took me 15 minutes to get used to and it never breaks, I only broke a ply after about a month of skating it everyday but it still skates fine. I refuse to skate any other deck now, because I'm notorious for breaking boards. I decided to leave this review after checking everyday to see if it's back in stock. Hopefully soon (Posted on 12/29/2016)
