The FlightDeck is made out of 100% post-consumer high density polyethylene (HDPE), which is a fancy way of saying it's recycled heavy duty plastic. HPDE is what your plastic cutting board is likely made of, and it makes a great deck for the same reasons: it is waterproof, UV proof, resists scratches and dings, and is very strong.
Using recycled plastic reduces our ecological impact and keeps perfectly good plastic out of the waste stream. These decks are made outside of Minneapolis, MN by RPI. Check out their awesome process for making new plastic sheets out of old plastic products in this tour.
The front and rear handles are a convenient place for passengers to hang onto and they make it easier to park the bike in tight spots. The accessory holes are used to mount some of our favorite passenger accessories such as the Hooptie, and the PeaPod III.
The FlightDeck is not compatible with the MagicCarpet. We're working on a new cushion that is FlightDeck compatible, but don't have a solution currently.
This deck comes with a set of SuperHooks to attach the FlightDeck to your V-racks, ensuring a secure connection. Do not use SnapHooks with this deck!
