After several years of development, P2 (Pro-2) construction has been created as the next level in skateboard decks. P2 technology includes an oval-shaped [aramid] fiber reinforcement panel, which enhances the natural performance and pop of its supporting seven, thin veneers of maple. The oval shape is designed to spread stresses and loads throughout the entire deck, versus around only the areas closest to the trucks. The P2 construction provides exceptional added resilience to the deck creating a "Spring Loaded Pop" effect. P2 decks are thinner and lighter than old fashioned 7-ply wood skateboards. The Aramid fiber used to make P2 decks is expensive stuff, but "Spring Loaded Pop" is priceless!
