Almost Skateboard History
Almost Skateboards is a company that operates under Dwindle Distribution. Almost Skateboards was started in 2003 by pro skaters Rodney Mullen and Daewon Song. Almost Skateboards are high quality skateboards made of epoxy resin. They have recently designed and integrated the new innovative impact support technology into their skateboards. Almost Impact was designed for the advanced skaters in mind so that they may their push skate tricks skills to the next level. The company has also seen impressive skateboard design success with their reinforced über light deck. What will they come up with next?
Almost Skateboards Construction Technology
Almost Skateboards has played a leading role in pushing the limits of skateboarding technology. The Impact Support decks still use 100% Canadian Hard Rock 7-ply maple. However, the Impact Support decks have infused Carbon Fiber discs where the trucks are located. The Carbon Fiber discs provide extra support and eliminates the traditional breaking points of a normal skateboard.
After creating the Impact Support series boards, Almost Skateboards decided to take their technology to the next level. While continuing to use Carbon Fiber discs to eliminate breakage and add support, the scientists at Almost Skateboards added an entire top sheet of Carbon Fiber. By doing so, they we're able to only use 6-plys of wood (which reduces weight considerably) while adding tons of strength and pop to the board. The Double Impact board is the most durable board on the market.
With the help of Rodney Mullen, Almost Skateboards has developed one of the lightest and strongest boards on the market. The Uber Light series was constructed with one goal in mind: lighter is better. Underneath the 7-ply Canadian Hard Rock maple, is a 4 1/2" x 28" carbon fiber deck that's stiff as metal and unbelievably light. The deck still feels, slides and looks like a normal 7-ply board, but it's low weight, long life span and unbelievable pop make it a board among champions.
Impact Plus is the newest skateboard technology introduced by Almost Skateboards. Much like the original Impact Support system, decks with Impact Plus technology still have the two carbon discs embedded in the truck mount areas. However, all Impact Plus decks will now also include a carbon die-cut top laminate. This carbon laminate helps increase the decks strength, integrity, and overall pop.
