The 8" DK900 FGC skateboard deck is intended for advanced skateboarders who tend to break a lot of boards or who are looking for the best possible pop.

The FGC composite combines 5 layers of Canadian FSC maple and 2 layers of fibreglass. The result: a thinner deck that's twice as resistant to breakages as a 100% maple deck.

Technical information

FGC construction: Fiber Glass Composite

Decathlon Skateboarding has designed this new composite construction with 5 layers of FSC-certified Canadian maple and 2 layers of woven fibreglass, pressed with an Epoxy resin.
This new construction makes the board twice as resistant to breakage as a classic 7-ply maple construction.
Since it's lighter, the board also has more pop (bounce) and lasts longer than a 100% maple board.

Because we don't always land cleanly!

How much does the DK900 8" skateboard deck weigh?

1208 g (average over 5 decks)

One board per mould

Our FGC decks are individually hot pressed, with an epoxy resin. This means that each mould only presses one board at a time. This allows us to guarantee optimal pressure distribution so that each board of the same model has the exact same shape and curve. Which is an advantage for those that enjoy skating with the same shape.

How to choose the right deck size

A skateboard deck should be chosen based on the width you need. A narrower deck means easier handling (great for beginners and shorter riders). The wider the deck, the more stable it is and the safer your landings, making this type of deck good for taller skateboarders or those who like to ride the half-pipes. Sizes are given in inches. 1 inch = 2.54 cm.
The length and wheelbase also have a major impact on deck handling and stability

FSC-certified maple

The wood that we use is FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council). This certification guarantees that the forest has been managed so as to preserve biodiversity and benefit local people and workers, while ensuring its economic viability.
