What would be the best way to test the durability of our material? Something that could stand the pressure. How about a skateboard? Yes! We produced a few in our factory, teamed up with some friends and went for a ride:
How did it go?
It is always interesting to interact with picky subcultures like skateboarding. So far we have done 3 field-tests. Where we wanted to explore things like weight, strength, gods thickness, impact, friction, pop, flexibility, feeling etc. What works, what doesn’t. Forcing the prototype skateboards to snap, understanding when and how. Trimming. Where in the thickness range between 6.9 mm to 7.4 does it fell right? And off course just to see how the skaters interact and talk about a new material instead the classic 7 layers of maple.
Verdict… well we leave you in dispense. More to come on this adventure.
