Here's another brand for the listing of deck manufacturers: Kaliber Skateboards. They were one of the sponsors of the German Championships 2003 and their team and staff were present both as sponsors, spectators and cone marshals. Great gang!

Post by Heiko Schöller » Tue Dec 07, 2004 5:53 pm

In 2005 Kaliber will put out some really nice carbon fibre decks. The Kaliber Team will come to nearly all contests in Europe and maybe the USA!!! So watch out!!!

These decks here I got for the season 2004. Custom made Bamboo / Mahogany decks.

S-camber that block back and front foot I suppose...
So is it really more powerful when pumping?

It´s the Wave-camber not the S-camber...

Yes the wave in the middle is too big but an upturned nose and tail is the future I think...

Where can I find some information about Kaliber boards?
I searched for a long time, but I only found a couple boards on concretewave website.

It would be great if some information could be written in this post or on some other website. :)

Carsten.....As I said before- I've seen the selection of slalom boards on the concretewave.de webstore, but I've seen a lot of other Kaliber boards that aren't there and I don't think that Kaliber makes only 3 different boards, because I've seen a lot more of them in life.

Thanks Antonio :)

The 161 trucks are just perfect!
I like my Kaliber board, but it's got no racetail and I want to try one with a racetail. I hope I'll get what I want. :)
