Addict gave Brandon James his own signature Blacksmith deck, as he has been around as a pro scooter rider forever. Brandon prefers riding street over park so if you are into street riding, the Brandon James Blacksmith deck may be just for you!
The Addict Street deck is a pro scooter deck that Addict created for Brandon James, who rides pro in pro scooter competitions for Addict scooters. The Brandon James Signature deck is 5" wide by 23.2" long, with an 83.5 degree headtube angle. Headtube angle affects a couple of things. The steep rake of the Blacksmith deck makes it perfect for those riders who have mastered the single tail whip and are moving onto multiple whips. The steeper the headtube angle, the more the deck whips around a flat plane with less resistance. Because the deck does not have boxed ends, we consider the Blacksmith deck to be a park deck but it's equally at home at the skatepark or in your hood. PRO SCOOTER DECKS that are 23+" long will be ideal for intermediate to pro riders that have been in the sport for a while or for those scooter riders that need a little more footspace. The Blacksmith deck works with the following wheel diameters: 100mm,110mm,115mm,120mm and the following wheel widths: 24mm,26mm,28mm,30mm. Note that decks typically come standard with 24mm spacers. If you change the wheel core width, you will also need to change your spacers to accomodate the new wheel core width.
