The Root Industries Xtension deck isn't one deck - it's actually 3 in 1. Root has solved a major issue in the scooter industry. As riders grow, they need more footspace on the deck, which means that a rider has to purchase multiple decks over their riding career. The Xtension deck is supremely innovative, utilizing a clever rail system to extend the width of your deck as you go. The base deck is 4.75 inches wide and utilizes deck plugs to "close" the sides w the rail extensions are installed. When you need a 5.5" or 6" wide deck, all you have to do is remove the deck plug and slide your desired extender in place. You might be wondering how durable a deck is that has rail extensions. Some of the top park shredders in the world have spent 2 years testing the deck without any issues with the side rails. The extension deck is available in 2 lengths, 21 and 22 inches, giving a massive range of flexibility in . The Xtension deck comes with 3 sets of stylized boxed drop outs including axles and spacers for each rail size and either 24/30mm wheel sizes. This is hands down the most versatile pro scooter deck made to date. With all of the money you are going to save on decks in the future, you can probably afford some titanium bars now and have the absolute lightest pro scooter setup on the planet.
The Root Industries Xtension Deck is 4.75" and 5.5" and 6" wide by 21" or 22" long, with an 83 degree headtube angle. Headtube angle affects a couple of things.

Pro Scooter Decks that are 22-22.99" long will be ideal for intermediate to pro riders that have been in the sport for a while or for those scooter riders that need a little more footspace.
