Technical information

The Rural Changemakers https://rural-changemakers.com/

SKATEBOARDING. EDUCATION. COMMUNITY.
These are the pillars of Janwaar Castle – an incredible skatepark tucked away in the small, remote village of Janwaar, India. Here, skateboards are more than just four wheels and a deck. They are THE vehicle driving social change, gender equality and education.
Decathlon Skateboarding is proud to support The Rural Changemakers (since 2016) by launching two collaborative deck models (8" and 8.25").
The profits of these decks go to the NGO.

Wood and pop quality

This 7-ply deck is made from Canadian rock hard maple, the best wood for technical skateboard decks.
The wood used for this deck is FSC certified (sourced from sustainably managed forests)

The deck is cold pressed for better durability.
We use a high-performance water-based glue that is less polluting than epoxy resins.

One deck per mould

Our maple decks are cold pressed, one by one. This means that each mould contains only one deck at a time during pressing. This allows for optimal pressure distribution to ensure that each deck has the exact same shape and concave. This is an advantage for those who always want to skateboard with the same shape.

How much does the Skateboard Deck DK120 8.25" weigh?

About 1.2 kg. Because the decks are hand sanded and the density of each ply of wood may be different, the weight of each deck may vary slightly. Of course, the deck is only one component that determines the weight of your skateboard. The wheel size and trucks also have a strong impact.

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
