Impact Plus Technology features an 8-ply North American core laminated with Epoxy Glue. This board has Carbon-Fiber inserts on both the top of the deck and the bottom of the deck underneath the truck mounts. This combination creates a deck with great long lasting pop and unbeatable durability. The Carbon-Fiber inserts prevent stress cracking and make your deck last much longer than a traditional skate deck. This construction is available from Almost, Enjoi, Zero, and Cliche.
Impact Support Technology is the combination of an 8-ply epoxy resin maple skateboard deck and two Carbon-Fiber inserts. The Carbon fiber inserts provide impact protection where your trucks mount to the board preventing stress cracks and elongating the life of your board. Board with this construction are longer laster and retain their pop better than a traditional maple skate deck. This technology is available in Cliche, Enjoi, Zero, and Almost skateboard decks.

7-ply Hard Rock maple construction is the most common and most trusted in skateboard deck manufacturing. This construction consists of 7 plies of 1/16" hard rock maple veneer laminated with waterproof wood glue under high pressure. This construction creates a deck that is high performance, durable, and low cost. Although many manufacturers use this construction method, the best decks are manufactured using high quality maple from the great lakes region, cold-pressed in a single cavity mold. Decks with this construction are made by most skateboard brands.
