Earthwing 40" NLS Deck: EW Emblem w Wings Black
The N.L.S. is something we have been working on for a year. The first 2 decks are the N.L.S.40 - more of a versatile symmetrical free-rider / park deck. It's hard to peg it as just one thing. The shorter N.L.S.37 is a directional, more race friendly deck that has a full functional tail. Both have multiple wheel bases from 20 13/16" - 24".
Crush-Weld Process: Decks are pressed one at a time in an aluminum mold for tight tolerances under heat, and tremendous pressure. There is no glue involved here, the core is bonded with a structural element. The bond is stronger than the core material itself, so delams are a non issue. The core is pressed between a fibrous material we call Unbeleivium. This material can be designed with flex patterns, so we designed this with unusually rigid torsional support. This is the holy grail for anything fast. You will be a better skateboarder with this deck.
When everything is said and done, this 4 ply core deck is stiffer, and stronger than a typical 9ply without all that weight. Because of the process, and technology, we were able to press a full 360 degree concave. You can see that the deck holds more than 96 oz of water. We pressed a giant bowl. The core actually corrugates itself in the kicks under the pressure because it has no place to go. One other cool thing about this process is that it is 100% clean and green, recyclable, and made in the USA.
