Skatelite is an incredibly durable solid paper composite material used as a riding surface for extreme sports. Made by Richlite, who has manufacturing paper composite panels for more than 70 years, Skatelite is the same material that has been used by the aerospace, marine and A&D industries. The material is the leading surface used by top skaters, BMX riders, camps, training facilities and competitions.
Fast and strong, Skatelite is used by park managers, planners, builders and athletes alike for its smooth riding surface, low maintenance, long life and comfortable temperature. Made with FSC certified and/or recycled paper, Skatelite can be used raw or can be painted, custom printed or customised with vinyls. It's also an excellent material for making Longboard decks.
You can find these ramp surfaces in some of the world's biggest competitions like The X-Games, Dew Tour, Dany Way's Hard Rock Drop and soon the Olympics. Hoffman's record air, Danny Way's Hard Rock drop, Tom Schaar's 1080 and Tony Hawk's 900 all happened because of Skatelite. The material is weatherproof and nearly indestructible and gives riders a balance of speed and grip unlike any other surface.
