Helsinki, Finland (PRWEB) June 09, 2016
Uitto has introduced a line of biocomposite skateboards that are 100% recyclable and sustainable and is currently live on Kickstarter raising funds to bring the project to life.
The Uitto Biocomposite Skateboard is a fun-loving, eco-friendly cruiser. It's neither the stiffest, smallest nor the lightest board on the market, but rather an intentional compromise to create a board as adaptable as possible. It was designed to be forgiving and smooth, while enabling tricks and rougher riding.
The Uitto Biocomposite brings the traditional wooden board into this day and age. Without sacrificing build integrity or quality, biocomposite boards are highly ecological, being fully recyclable and non-toxic. They weather the elements, moisture and temperature superiorly to traditional skateboards.
"Skateboards break, deform and delaminate and we wanted to solve this problem and make a better board in a sustainable way,” says CEO and Designer Joel Raivio. “"Biocomposite skateboards are more resistant and durable than traditional skateboards. Not only do they last longer they are also more sustainable and fully recyclable."
The deck itself comes in three colors: bark, moss and stone. Thanks to the organic flow of the substance during manufacture, each individual board has its own unique pattern. The Uitto "Ride-On-Rough" 59mm 80a -wheels provide a smooth ride, even on rougher surfaces yet remain hard enough to sneak in the occasional power slide. The board also uses standard 5" hanger trucks, and the decks include integrated risers compatible with any standard skateboarding trucks or wheels. With the Uitto Biocomposite Board, wheel bite won’t be an issue.
"Uitto means moving logs from a forest to sawmill downstream using the current of the river. We at Uitto Boards aim to bring this experience into the 21st century. We ride pieces of wood and stand sideways in the current just like they did a century ago. We make our boards with the utmost attention to detail, using the old way of doing things right, with the latest in material technology,” adds Raivio, “Get the best of both worlds and enjoy the feeling of timber under your feet that is Uitto Boards."
