Maple vs Bamboo

Freebord the Mountaineer MAPLE DECK


Our maple decks are made with traditional 7 ply Canadian rock maple that most skate decks are made with. Maple decks have slightly more pop than bamboo decks, but aren’t as rigid as bamboo; either deck rides great and get the job done, it just depends on your personal preference


Our bamboo-maple hybrid decks are made with a 5 ply Canadian rock maple core and 2 plys (top and bottom of vertically laminated bamboo). The bamboo plys make this deck stronger, slightly lighter,and more rigid (providing more edge control/responsiveness than the pure maple deck).
