The Sportster Pro 39 takes everything that we love about the original all wood Sportster and adds in the benefits of weatherproof fiberglass construction and a small nose and tail for kicking up the board when needed and protecting your expensive trucks. The board has a slight to moderate dampening flex but is stiffer than the original wood Sportster. Flex will be noticeable when pushing around town while positioning the foot in the middle of the deck and will be very slight when in freeride stance with feet placed near the drops, making the deck excellent for sliding and comfortable at speed. This deck is ideal for riders under 180 pounds who want an extremely durable pusher/slider who will dabble in some downhill also. Heavier riders will still be comfortable pushing and sliding but may desire more stiffness at high speeds and should look to decks like our Ibach, EQ, Ratmobile, or Mekanik. If you're going to own one deck and one deck only, the Sportster Pro will handle anything and everything you throw at it and will last for years.
