The brand new and greatly waited phoenix range has arrived in the UK. Products from phoenix are always of the highest quality and we are thrilled to bring you reviews on everything in their range. Today we shall be reviewing the Phoenix Session 2 deck.
The phoenix Session 2 deck comes in at a healthy 20” in length by 4.25” wide of which we think suits either the younger or small riders out there. The over all weight of only 3.60lbs only confirms this further. The premium liquid paint and watercal graphics is highly scratch proof and there are 4 colours to choose from black, gunmetal grey, purple and red. This deck has new reinforcement plates on the front of the decks two-degree concave extrusion making it super strong. The deck can fit any type of riding style so whether your riding the streets, doing rails, fat drops and ledges or riding park doing big airs and fat boxes its perfect for the task at hand. I think what makes it such a nice versatile deck for all kinds of riding is the head tube angle, which sits comfortably at 82.5 inches. This deck comes with a phoenix switchblade flex fender and high tensile bolt and spacers.
How well does it ride?
Let’s start with grinding. Thanks to the flat base with less contact area this deck grinds amazingly, it’s so smooth and buttery. You lock in perfectly allowing you to pull off some really smooth and technical grinds. Regarding the strength of the deck it is made from High Grade 6061 T6 Alloy. This makes it a very tough deck indeed and yet it’s still pretty light, making it really whippy and easy to manoeuvre. I have been riding this deck for a while now and I haven’t had any problems or any signs of cracks or bends. It really is an incredible deck.
Overall the Phoenix session 2 decks is an amazing deck, it rides perfectly. I would recommend this deck for any rider, admittedly there is some weight to this deck but its win all the right places so makes it feel great. At only £79.95 it is very cheap and affordable so get yourself over to your local scooter retailer and hook yourself up now before there all gone.
