The Stealth is the first model of AO’s new VM (vertically machined) deck series. It features extra-long, U-shaped welds which increase the welding area for about 30 %. The welds are aligned with the center beams for maximum stiffness and the extra wide neck base increases leverage and lateral support. The neck and head tube are forged out a solid block of aluminum making it literally indestructible. The completely flat Stealth deck is perfectly balanced and light weight and comes with grind rails to reduce friction and boost grinding speed making it the perfect deck for street. Other features are a machined headset opening for a precise fit, high tensile Chromoly axle bolts, slightly rounded side walls to prevent injuries and a curved stainless steel flex brake to prevent flat spots on your wheel.
