Orthros was a two-headed dog from Greek mythology that met his demise at the hands of none other than Hercules, himself. So it follows that whoever rides Orthros will feel nothing less than Herculean. This 35.5" twin-deck is an all-around crowd-pleaser. It is a bamboo/fiberglass composite built from 5 layers of bamboo in the body, 3 long + 2 cross-cut. The 22 mm deep compartment is made from an additonal 13 layers of veneer including 3 cross-cut for added medial-lateral strength.
The regular fiberglass reinforcement for this deck is 6 oz. The heavy-weight reinforcement uses 10 oz.
The compartment lid is made from verticlal-cut bamboo reinforced with FR4 fiberglass sheet. It is fastened in four places using threaded inserts, and the same bolts used for common skate-hardware. Four grooves have been made in the back of the compartment to assist with motor installation along with two wire-passes in the center for battery connections.
The grip is made from recycled glass-grit set in epoxy-resin. Black grip is available with fiberglass. The deck includes insets and bolts. !!!No additonal equiptment pictured is included!!!
The deck is available naked for people that would like to do the finish themselves, BUT it was designed as a bamboo/fiberglass composite deck and must be finished with the recommended amount of fiber-glass in order to perform as intended. !!!Decks sold unfinished will not be replaced if broken!!!
