Ethic offers its Vulcain deck in both a park and street version. This, the street version, has boxed ends for the street rider. 12 STD is becoming more and more popular but Ethic realized that the entry price point is a little too steep for most riders. So they created the Ethic Vulcain 12 STD deck. At just $159, the deck is highly affordable and offers much over conventional decks. The 12mm deck axle is much beefier than standard 8mm axles and can handle a lot more abuse. However, you need 12 STD wheels, bearings, and forks if you are going to ride this deck. Unless you use the included 8mm transition spacers to run a conventional 8mm axle, bearings, and wheels. If that's your plan, you will need to purchase an 8mm axle separately.
The Vulcain pro scooter deck is 5.1" wide by 20.9" or 22" long, with an 83 degree headtube angle. Headtube angle affects a couple of things. The steep rake of the Vulcain street 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 has boxed ends, we consider the Vulcain street deck to be a street deck but it's equally at home at the skatepark or in your hood. PRO SCOOTER DECKS that are 22-22.99" 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 Vulcain street deck works with the following wheel diameters: 100mm,110mm,115mm,120mm,125mm 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.
This is a solid street deck and I love the way the all black looks. Its lightweight as is customary of Ethic. The axel in the back is 12mm, so you'll need to replace/buy your own axle to use normal 8mm wheels/bearings which we were able to grab one from Home Depot. The one to buy is M8 - 1.25 x 100mm steel socket head, plus an M8 - 1.25 hex nut.
