Rails are two plastic bars that can be mounted on the bottom of your deck. They have a pretty long tradition in skateboard history. Widely used in the 80s, they are nowadays primarily used by a very specific group of people. Rails serve to protect your deck from tears and excessive wear during slides. They also contribute significantly to improved slide performance. They allow long slides, even on the roughest ledges and roughest pool copings. Some skateboarders prefer to use a single rail on their skateboard, which gives them more control during slides. Of course, the rails are, thanks to flashy designs, a real eye-catcher. In each set of rails the matching mounting kit is included.
At Freedom Skateshop you will find a wide selection of rails from brands like Santa Cruz, Pig, Creature or Welcome.
