The 121C Aileron longboard features an incredibly lightweight design thanks to the use of carbon fibre as the main material component, repurposed from leftover rocket ship building material. Creator Ryan Olliges recycles the leftover carbon fibre to create a durable yet incredibly weightless board that is ideal for skating and daily use.

Unlike a traditional board made of wooden material, a carbon fibre body greatly reduces the weight of the vehicle without compromising the strength of the board. This is ideal for constant use as the carbon fibre makes the board virtually bullet proof and able to stand up to all sorts of rough damage. The board is designed to not crack and features a pointed front and curved back for added rider aerodynamics.
