Details

Our View:
Earthwing's Hell Camino was last year's most well thought out hybrid.
They took that mold & scaled it down & it's now producing 3 different decks, the Thruster being one of them.
It features a touch of rocker, w concave for stiffness, wheel arches & deeeeep wheel wells.
Add to that the Thermolam construction sandwiches 6 plies of maple for added durabilty & stiffness.
The only limitation is your attitude. 

From Brand:
The Thruster double kick has a thicker 6 ply core with Thermolam, so it is noticeably stiffer for park skating, and general foolishness on any terrain.  Thermolam slides fast on coping, is highly abrasion resistant, and extends the life of the deck.  (Skaters are still riding drifters from 2006)  For the weight, this is one solid deck.  

This mold is a smaller version of the Hell Camino's mold.  The unique rocker concave is created by pressing the mold down around the center spine of the deck.  The edge rises gradually from the center up to the fenders allowing for a ton of clearance without being intrusive.  When I say tons of clearance, we are talking 65mm without risers on traditional kingpin trucks tested. Keeping the center on a flat plane between the trucks creates a subtle "W" for rigid support, but you hardly know it's there.
