Stronger and lighter was the goal when developing the Lambda 3.1 deck. Many traditional necks cut through the center of the scooter deck creating a weak point. AO is using a U-shaped welding technology which barely hurts the deck and also significantly increases the welding area. The headtube is Forged from one single block of aluminum under 5 tons of pressure, same goes for the neck! 30% stronger support beams.
Other improvements are a machined headset opening after anodizing for a precise fit, the neck was moved all the way forward to maximize deck space and the angled shape starts right at the beam to prevent any bending of the edges.
Light and strong deck for the demanding rider that wants a well balanced street & park able deck.
