INTRODUCING THE SECTION C.B.N. ELEMENT’S MOST ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE SKATEBOARD TO DATE.

Element is proud to release, after more than two years of research and development the “Section C.B.N.”: a skate deck made in partnership with Spain-based HLC skateboard factory that is proven to have 43% less impact on the planet than our traditionally made skateboard decks in the same factory. With the help and expertise of the French-based environmental consultancy agency Air coop, a full scientific lifecycle analysis of our traditionally made skateboard decks was carried out, discovering, and highlighting the areas where a skateboard deck is most harmful to the environment. By focusing on these key areas, we were able to determine which materials could be phased out of the manufacturing process, while maintaining the structural integrity and performance of the premium skateboard.

Components of the Section C.B.N.: the deck is made from FSC certified wood and was assembled with materials that HLC has helped us to develop and utilize. The use of solvent free — water-based varnish, water-based glue, natural veneers, single color screen print graphic and bio-based packaging help contribute to this breakthrough. The Section C.B.N. will be available in select skate shops from the month of June 2024 in Europe and Japan only.

Future = Nature.
If not now, when?
