About LIGAMENT™ Technology
All Powell-Peralta LIGAMENT™ decks have one wider, more robust polymeric strap, instead of the three skinnier straps that were found in the original LIGAMENT™. The reinforcing strap is strong and flexible, like the ligaments that connect your muscles to your bones. Even when you break the board, the ligament strap will hold your deck together allowing you to ride out of it, instead of doing the groin-tearing splits. LIGAMENT™ decks weigh the same as a 7-ply maple deck, but have more pop, stay stiff longer than ordinary boards, and prevent the deck from ever breaking into two pieces because of the LIGAMENT™ in each one.
The Powell-Peralta team gives LIGAMENT™ technology two thumbs up after many months of testing, and on February 15, 2011 Aldrin Garcia set a new High Ollie World Record of 45" using a Powell-Peralta LIGAMENT™ deck. Advantages
- Greater confidence.
- More pop for higher ollies.
- Stiffer, longer-lasting flex for increased board life.
