Proto Scooters has released their long anticipated Space Deck! This summer practically the entire country got to see the team tear every street jam while shredding the prototypes. With their release the options in sizes are 21 long, 22 long, and 23 long; making the space deck the one of the biggest scooter decks on the market ( also with TSI).
The announcement of the TDI head tube system by Andrew Broussard back in 2008 seemed like a far fetched concept; it was unclear if it would ever catch on and become a product available to the public. Nevertheless, Andrew pursued getting the TDI system applied. First with the Orion deck and now the Space deck. The three holes at the top of the extrusion ( deck base ) are where the bolts are mounted to lock the slide in head tube. The intention is to create a space where a wider variety in deck length, width and angle combos are possible by reverting back to a more assembly you deck era. Currently the Space decks are being received well and Proto / TGE Distribution have been cranking them out nonstop since going on sale.
The Proto Team has been a force of nature this summer. The wide base and flat sides make it optimal for 50/50 combos and cruising bowls. The dropouts are shaped for 5-0 grinds introducing more possibilities for grinds. The Space deck has a stiff feeling under your feet accompanied with a 5 inch base; knowing how to mange the surface area is key to being able to enjoy to max performance.
