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 foot space on the deck, meaning they have 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 uses deck plugs to "close" the sides w the rail extensions are installed. When you need a 5.5" or 6" wide deck, simply 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.
The Xtension deck comes with 3 sets of stylized boxed dropouts, 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 will 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 available in 4.75", 5.5", and 6" width options, with a length of either 21" or 22", and an 83-degree headtube angle. The headtube angle has an impact on several things. The steep rake of the Root Industries Deck makes it ideal for riders who have already mastered the single tail whip and are ready to attempt multiple whips. A more acute headtube angle allows the Xtension Deck to whip around a flat plane with less resistance. Despite having boxed ends, our team considers the Root Industries Scooter Deck a hybrid deck; since it is also suitable for use at the skatepark or in your neighborhood. Intermediate to pro riders who've been in the sport for an extended period or require additional foot space should go for pro scooter decks between 22-22.99" in length. The Root Industries Xtension Deck accommodates wheel diameters of 100mm, 110mm, 115mm, or 120mm, and wheel widths of 24mm, 26mm, 28mm, or 30mm. Please note that decks typically come with standard 24mm spacers. If you modify the wheel core width, you need to change your spacers to fit the new wheel core width.
