By altering the number of layers of material that we add into the mould, we are are able to tune the final performance of the TRAMPA decks relevant to the riders weight height & ability. Please use the FLEXOMETER above as a guide to help you choose the right ply board for you. TRAMPA's FLEXOMETER information is to be interpreted as a 'GUIDE ONLY' as there is no fixed rule as to which is the exact right deck for you. The weight, height & ability of the rider will all help determine which is the right sort of deck for you, but of course the most important factor is personal preference as to how the rider wants their deck to feel.... Some riders like it flexi, some like it firm, some like it very very stiff.... It depends on what you are doing on your board, i.e. freestyle, freeride, boarder-cross, altho there is guidance there is no right & no wrong just personal preference but when purchasing a deck from TRAMPA we want to make sure you get it exactly the way you want it! so if your stuck as to which one is the best for you them please drop as a line...
TRAMPA's 35° HOLYPRO Mountain Board deck is so called because of its special Weight Saving Holes. It is the #1 option for all Top level Riders including all of our Pro Team Mountainboard Riders! Being Slightly shorter than the 35° Long BUT slightly longer than the 35° Short, the 35° HOLYPRO deck offers the best of both worlds in terms of performance & weight BUT it also comes with EXTRAS!! The extra's include the weight saving "Water Cut Holes" that are blasted into the Foot Stance area & at the Tips of both ends of the deck.
The "Frogmouth" cut out shape on the tip of the deck is the same shape as the hole in the VERTIGO & ULTIMATE Trucks. This allows you to uniquely see through your Deck & into the Truck during operation. These impressive holes do not only look awesome but they also save you lots of weight right at the critical tip of your deck, allowing much more nimble-ness without removing any of the stiffness or performance from the deck! HOLYPRO!! The Oval holes & Frogmouth shape can only be made so neatly during the manufacturing process in the factory, therefor they cannot be replicated at home & you should never be able to puchase a copy... some may try but most will fail!!
Its Unique weight saving hole in the tip of the deck means its drill pattern will only fit to TRAMPA Spring Trucks. Spring Trucks are a much stronger design than the Skate Trucks & by far a more suitable option for advanced or quick learning riders. Spring Trucks offer a lot more adjustment, resulting in lots more stability & confidence to the rider. The HOLYPRO Deck has been intelligently shaped to cut back excess material & further reduce weight around the Tip of the deck & to assist the rider steer by adding a long radius on the Toe side, making toe sided turns easier.
The 35° HOLYPRO comes as standard pre Drilled to fit your TRAMPA TRUCKS but the bindings holes are left blank for your customisation. Please select from the drop down menus if you want to drill the bindings yourself or if you would like TRAMPA to neatly do this for you at NO EXTRA CHARGE. The 35° HOLYPRO also comes as standard with Grip Tape already fitted, a special Marine Grade Stainless Steel Complete Deck Bolt Kit & any choice of Vinyl Stickers fitted.
Because of its unique shape the 35° HOLYPRO can be used for all applications of Mountain Board Riding including when accompanied with the MAGURA BRAKES or fitted with an ELECTRIC ENGINE CONVERSION. The 35° HOLYPRO is available in 3 different flex rates, 15ply is the most flexible, 17ply is the stiffest. Please use the FLEXOMETER in the TAB ABOVE for guidance as to which is the most suitable ply deck for you or mail this link if you need some advice.
TRAMPA decks are considered the strongest, poppiest, most Customisable Decks on the market. Their performance is un-matched by any other brand! You will 'Pop' higher & have a more 'Cushioned landing' all thanks to the incredible performance of the TRAMPA deck! Once cooked our impenetrable composite weave is so strong whilst still so flexible, that the magic material will not split, delaminate or break in anyway shape or form, regardless of which deck / ply you choose, or the environment that you use it in, because all TRAMPA Decks are sold as UN-BREAKABLE & to prove this we offer you a lifetime guarantee!
TRAMPA’s famous range of indestructible Decks are unlike anything else on the market. Tailored to a riders' weight, height & ability – TRAMPA DECKS give unrivaled responsiveness & confidence in the board when riding.
Created to replace dull unresponsive wooden decks & reinvent the off-road riding experience, TRAMPA decks bring a whole new riding-experience. With insane ‘pop’ & shock-absorbing flex, TRAMPA decks are the #1 choice for freestyle riding & comfortable cruising.
Made using a secret re-enforced glass and plastic composite (originally developed for light-weight military applications), TRAMPA decks are indestructible. In 17 years of excessive & harsh testing - pushing the decks to their limits (inside & out of intended applications) - there has never been a single break!
TRAMPA decks are measured in “Ply”, referring to how many layers of ‘secret-composite’ are used when making the deck. A lower ply deck will be flexi-er & lighter than a higher-ply one. Generally we recommend higher ply decks for heavier riders, and lower for lighter riders – but flex, pop, and stiffness are all a matter of taste. Our Ply-ratings range from 11 - 18 in various lengths & shapes – meaning there’s a perfect TRAMPA deck for everyone!
TRAMPA decks have 35°, 15° or 0° Truck Mounting Angles, in order to work with the various steering systems used across different applications.
35° Decks – Work in perfect harmony with TRAMPA’s amazing Spring Trucks – a highly tuneable steering system designed give optimal responsiveness at 35°.
15° Decks – Fit to ATB Skate Trucks – a lightweight & cheaper steering system, perfect for lighter riders & kiteboarders.
0° Deck – Our ORRSOM Longboard Deck uses a special split-tip that allows 12FIFTIES Longboard trucks to be mounted at 3 different heights.
How are they made?
The TRAMPA™ deck is made from a re-enforced glass and plastic thermo composite. Chosen because it gives a superior strength-to-weight ratio, whilst (unlike carbon fibre) remaining flexible. It is able to withstand huge impacts, forces and flex's that would shatter other materials.
Specially formulated, and presented in a thread like format, just like cotton. From there, it’s woven to our desired width, and placed it onto a roll. Pre-shaped, polished-aluminium moulds are used to give the material the dimensions and surface quality we require – this is where we vary the layer quantity of the composite in the mould, & control the amount of flex and pop in the resulting deck, giving us our Ply Ratings.
A special seal is used to create a high-pressured vacuum, then mould is then placed in a special oven to cook for about 2 hours. As the air is sucked out, the heated material becomes fluid – then at the crucial moment heating is turned off and the moulds are cooled, resulting in one solid piece! The decks are then cut out using a high-pressure water-cutter, resulting in a razor sharp finish to the edge of the deck.
The decks are then finished by hand. The binding and grab handle fixing holes are measured and drilled by hand, Metal files are used to take away the sharp edge of the deck and they are then rubbed smooth with a block and various grades of sandpaper.
TRAMPA are happy to announce that we can now offer CUSTOM PAINT JOBS on our decks. We’ve been releasing our parts in an amazing selection of colours - and now it’s time we offer the deck to match!
We’re luckily sited next to an awesome car spray shop, which are happy to take on some of our decks and make them shine! They know their paint, and know techniques for making any colour pop, without adding too much weight to the finished deck - guaranteeing a perfect & even finish that’ll last for years.
We’ve got a wide range of colours for you to pick and choose from, or you can send over a pantone of your own and we’ll match it the best we can!
Custom Sprayed Decks costs £100 extra, and should be ready to ship two weeks from your order.
The TRAMPA VERTIGO TRUCK is a slimmed down light weight version of the original Infinity Truck! Made in exactly the same way using FORGED Alloy for the HANGER, it has been CNC machined to cut out the bulk of the material, saving weight but without removing any of its critical strength. The VERTIGO hanger is also fitted with weight saving 12mm HOLLOW STEEL AXLES instead of the standard Solid axles found on the Infinity Truck. The Hanger is attached to an EXTRUDED & T6 HEAT TREATED Aluminum BASEPLATE which has also been CNC lightened. Comparing to the Infinity Truck the VERTIGO is over 20% lighter!! The Hanger & Baseplate "Kingpin Holes" are also CNC precision milled, allowing the Truck to assemble like a dream - everything fixes together perfectly enabling the VERTIGO TRUCKS to provide problem free precision riding!
NYLON BUSHINGS are inserted into the Hanger & Baseplate allowing a flush connection & to eliminate wear between the moving parts. Using a top quality 8mm STEEL KINGPIN, (which seriously reduces weight over the competitions products) connects the 2 integral parts together, allowing the steering to happen... Save money & weight by upgrading the Kingpin to a TITANIUM!
SPRINGS, loaded with TRAMPA DAMPA's are squeezed by hand, into the mounting positions between the Hanger & Baseplate. When anchored in position they give resistance to the steering. The steering resistance can be pre-set to your weight, riding ability & personal preference by changing the TRAMPA DAMPA to a stiffer/softer hardness. TRAMPA DAMPA's come in 5 different hardness's to suit all riding styles. The springs can also be ADJUSTED on the fly! By using a 4mm Allen Key you can further TUNE your steering by turning the SPRING ADJUSTER clockwise to give TIGHTER STEERING (fast riding) & turning anti-clockwise to give LOOSE STEERING (Carve riding). You can quickly adjust your board relevant to the conditions or terrain ahead... As your riding will improve over time you will demand more pre-tension from your steering, so dont over tighten your springs, instead change your Dampa's to something a little harder.
The 6 Spoke HYPA Wheel is the lightest & strongest plastic injected 7 & 8 inch Hub / Wheel on the market today! Its produced using original DuPont ingredients & the best Injection Moulding machinery, no quality expense is spared during the production of this amazingly strong little hub!
During testing the HYPA Wheels performance surpassed all expectations. :-) This little 8 inch wheel proved to be so strong, when the "Crash Test Dummies" (i mean the Mountainboard Team Riders) inflated their tyres well beyond factory recommendations! (Tut-Tut Naughty-Naughty!) The extra inflation resulted in substantially faster roll speeds, giving them the extra time in the air to complete their huge freestyle moves & still have time land in 1 piece! I'm pleased to tell you there were no explosions from the over inflation to report whilst breaking a HYPA HUB is just about unheard of, something extraordinary has to go wrong before these hubs do! If you have seen some of the crazy stuff the MTB & KTB teams have put the equipment through over the years, with genuinely almost no problems to report, you will have no doubt of the HYPA WHEELS performance capabilities.
HYPA Hubs are available in loads of coordinating colour combinations its difficult to make the decision as to which option you like the most! You can choose from naked Matt Black or White to Painted Gloss Red or Gloss Blue with Painted Black or White TRAMPA Logo's or Printed in Winter or Army Camo, the choice is all yours... :-)
TRAMPA's HYPA hubs are held together using Marine Grade (A4) Stainless steel Nuts & Bolts & will never rust on you. Our bolts are perfect for bad conditions. Not only will the nuts & Bolts never rust on you all the Bolts used by TRAMPA have been dipped in a special Blue Locking Paste, whilst all the Nuts that TRAMPA uses are fitted with the world renowned Nyloc nylon nut locking system, all of these no expense spared small details ensure you get the absolute best product possible! To help prevent you from purchasing imitations, TRAMPA's HYPA Hubs are always TRAMPA embossed between the spokes proving our top quality!
Your tyre requirements will be defined by the surface you are riding on, however you will be pleased to read that all of the HYPA Hubs will fit into any of the 7 inch Tyres or 8 Inch Tyres on the TRAMPA website. TRAMPA Hubs are also compatible with all known 8 Inch Tyres that are currently on the market, including any other Mountainboard or Dirt Scooter brand.
TRAMPA’s very own & genuine ABEC 5 rated Bearings, push perfectly into the 'Centre Set' bearing housings either side of the hub. The bearings are supported internally by use of a 'Bearing Support Spacer' sitting on the axle in the middle of the hub, guaranteeing the position of the bearings & the smoothest spin rate possible. TRAMPA's Bearings will fit onto 9.525mm, 10mm & 12mm Axles. The metric measurement of 9.525mm, is equal to the US Imperial measurement 3/8ths of 1 inch. Bearing Reducer Sleeves downsize your 12mm Bearings to fit onto 10mm Metric Scooter Axles or 9.525mm (3/8ths of an inch) Imperial Skate Axles. Bearings can be supplied at 50% of the usual retail price when purchased with a wheel... 2x Bearings cost just £2.50 per pair (usually £2.50 each), resulting in a £10 saving per set of 8x bearings, 8 bearings are enough for a set of 4 wheels!
TRAMPA's 200mm x 50mm - 8 Inch wonder wheels are the primary choice sized wheel for many inventors developing sporting equipment requiring very strong whilst very light weight, small pneumatic wheels for their applications to work correctly. Mountainboards, Kiteboards, 2Wheel, Dirt-Scooters, Bikes Skates, Sledges, Trikes, Skikes, Model Planes, Single Seater Planes, Dog Sledding, Dirt Skiing, Transportation Chariots & now lots of exciting electronic applications all due to come to the market very soon, all require an 8 inch wheel for their best movement... If you have a wheeled project on the go & you would like to fit TRAMPA's 8 inch wheels onto it, then in your design you need to use a 12mm axle & you will need to give an axle mounting space of 34.2mm in order to fit the TRAMPA Hubs correctly.
TRAMPA's RATCHET BINDINGS are the number 1 choice of Bindings for Mountain Boarding. The Ratchet Buckle mechanism allows the rider to lever the bindings very tight, much tighter than what is normally achievable compared to other styles, e.g. Velcro Bindings, treating the rider to a locked in & fully connected to the board sensation. TRAMPA Bindings wrap snugly over the top of your foot but firm footwear is advisable.... The EVA Foam Padding is 'Ribbed' & 'TRAMPA Embossed' on the underside of the Footstrap. These fine details helps maintain the foot locked into the Bindings whilst riding over rough terrain.
A Special Hook on the Base of the Ratchet Buckle locates into a special slot on the top of the Footstrap. This clever 3 point connection prevents any movement in the connection of the Straps allowing the rider the confidence in their equipment to concentrate purely on their riding. Although the Ladder strap will ultimately wear over time, it has been re-enforced on both sides at its base, guaranteeing performance when riding.
Stainless steel Dome Headed Bolts connect through the Footstrap into L-Brackets ensuring no discomfort to the foot. The L-Brackets are 'multi positional' allowing the rider the exact foot-stance they require. TRAMPA Bindings are supplied with a Marine grade A4 Stainless Steel deck fixing kit included. Ratchet style bindings are the serious Mountain Board rider’s primary choice binding! Ratchet Style bindings work at their absolute optimum when combined with TRAMPA Heel Straps.
