CORONA, CA - (NewMediaWire) - August 4, 2015 - Aluminati Skateboards, maker of the world's most innovative cruiser boards -- which include state-of-the-art aluminum design and distinctive, high resolution full wrap graphics -- is expanding its dynamic product offerings, including boards that feature major professional sports leagues, colleges and universities, and artist-created designs.
Aluminati began producing skateboards in 2013 to meet the growing need for a more durable, attractive, and sustainable alternative to the plastic cruiser skateboard. As cruiser boards -- great for beginners or as a fun means of transportation -- became more popular, the market was flooded with plastic decks made in China. Aluminati was founded on the premise that by replacing plastic with aluminum, the company would produce a better quality cruiser board -- virtually indestructible with limitless graphics potential.
"Aluminati was formed to provide a dynamic alternative to cheap and uninspired plastic beginner and cruiser decks that have dominated the marketplace," said Mike Rapport, President of Aluminati Skateboards. "While these plastic boards do not attract the core skater, Aluminati can. With vivid graphics on both the top and bottom of the board, Aluminati can offer products to a wide range of consumers, from the mass market casual riders to the passionate core skaters who want a cruiser board that speaks to them."
Created from aircraft-grade aluminum, Aluminati cruiser boards have a perfect size-to-weight ratio, making them far superior to the aluminum skateboards on the market years ago, which were often too heavy to maneuver effectively. Early aluminum boards were typically only available in anodized graphic-less designs and generally displayed little sense of style or inspiration.
Aluminati Skateboards are among the most visually distinctive boards on the market, including any available wooden models. The integrated, permanent, clear grip provides a view of the graphics on the top of the deck while riding as well as on the bottom when showing the board off to friends. Traditional decks only have graphic capabilities on the bottom.
With Aluminati's unique in-house production process, virtually any design, including individual rider-inspired artwork, is within reach. The company recently launched its 2015 Artist Series, featuring the artwork of both established and emerging artists including renowned surf artist Drew Brophy.
Board styles range from the dovetail surfboard inspired Wingnut, perfect for carving streets when the water's flat; the more compact Goby board, an on-the-go ride for getting from point A to point B; the slightly wider A-Frame, a great little ripper with classic design and modern graphics; and the cost-effective Basix line, available in six vibrant colors with two graphic options. And, in its final stages of prerelease testing is the Anyway board, the first freestyle cruiser board on the market. With the Anyway, you get the ease of ride of a cruiser, but you can easily do many freestyle tricks that were only done on larger boards.
As a dynamic artistic platform, Aluminati is positioned for additional growth in product offerings with new board styles and designs. Currently available at Amazon.com and soon at Target.com as well as the Aluminati online store, https://www.aluminatiboards.com/shop/.
