Product Description

The latest deck from Proto is the Ares, coming in at 6.5" wide. This is currently the second largest size available from Proto. The deck also comes with Batch Numbering, which allows riders deeper insight into the product they're purchasing and will enable Proto to ensure their product quality stays to their high standards. The top plate of the Ares also features the "Arch Bar" in the middle of the deck. The Arch Bar is designed to provide extra traction, and preserve the deck's concave without reducing strength, or increasing weight. You'll be able to keep your feet centered on the deck and have more control without wrapping your toes around the edge of the deck to whip.

Andrew Broussard created the TDI (Tunglok Deck Integration) deck system to resolve the issues that welded decks bring. Simply put, the neck of a scooter deck is the strongest point, while the extrusion (deck plate) is the weakest. This means that if you were to break a welded scooter deck, you’d be left with a completely unusable product and forced to replace the entire unit. The TDI system resolves this by using a two-piece deck that allows you to replace the deck plate when it’s worn out, but keep the neck, and hardware from the original pieces that will last multiple deck plates. Andrew also designed the neck to be compatible with every Proto deck plate available so customization is endless.

To clarify, the weight below reflects the weight of the neck, deck plate, and deck ends. However, only the deck plate is included, you'll have to purchase the neck and 6" deck ends separately. Also, brakes with a linear pattern are compatible with Proto's UBS system.
