Syndex - Top Width
By: Keedan Mitchell
A deck's width is not so straight forward. We specify top and bottom widths due there usually being a taper from top to bottom that makes the underside more narrow. The top width and bottom width have different uses.
The top width, is nothing more than comfort. Usually the wider a deck is, the more comfortable it is. However every body has their limit. At a certain point,(all based on personal preference with a hint of shoe size) a rider will discover they do not feel comfortable on anything wider than they are currently on.
Obviously a wider top width means more material which means more weight also.
