The deck is made of solid multi-ply hardwood. On top, it has a Durasoft Traction surface which provides a great combination of cushioning and grip.
You can stand on it both barefoot and in shoes. It won’t scratch you or your floors like the sandpaper-type grip you find on many other boards.
On the bottom, the board has two roller grip strips for a better grip and stability. As well as two bombproof roller stops to prevent the board from slipping out.
The roller is made out of urethane and has a carpeted type of material layered over the plastic, to make it roll easier. The carpeted material is soft thus doesn’t scratch the floor or leave marks. Also, it makes it a little bit quieter when you roll.
