Note: This is just the Neck of the deck.

To create a Full Deck you will need the following; NeckDeckDeck End Kit, and Brake (any brake with a vertical brake bolt pattern will fit the deck). We recommend the PROTO UBS Brake hardware as well: PROTO UBS Brake Replacement Hardware Kit.

With improved geometry, everything about this neck has been updated. The headtube is now nearly half an inch shorter than it’s predecessor allowing for a full 1.5″ of fork clamping in your SCS with most standard length forks. An 84* headtube angle gives you more handlebar clearance to ride taller and wider bars and increases comfort and pop. The nose blunt area of the OrionTH Neck has been pulled back inside of the Deck Plate to reinforce and protect the areas most commonly impacted during nose blunts, crooks and smith grinds. The tail of the neck that sits inside the Deck now has a slight radius on the bottom to soften the rear corners to allow more flex to reduce the possibility of the neck piercing through the Deck extrusion under heavy impacts. Most notably, the OrionTH Neck features the biggest update in TDI history with the debut of the new TDIth (THreaded) Hardware, creating the tightest fitting, strongest Neck/Deck assembly to date.

Andrew Broussard created the TDI (Tunglok Deck Integration) deck system to resolve the issues that welded decks bring. To put it simply, the neck of a scooter deck is the strongest point while the extrusion (deck plate) is the weakest. This means that if you were to break a welded scooter deck, you’d be left with a completely unusable product and you’d be forced to replace the entire unit. The TDI system resolves this by using a two-piece deck that allows you to replace the deck plate when it’s worn out, but keep the neck, and hardware from the original pieces that will last multiple deck plates. Andrew also designed the neck so that it's compatible with every Proto deck plate available so customization is endless.
