The Powell Quicksilver skateboard has as a hard rock maple core, laminated with aluminum. The original aluminum Tracker trucks were designed by Larry Balma and the yellow polyurethane wheels were a Powell design This board has veriflex trucks that were put on to replace the trackers. George Powell and Sims designed and manufactured this board, which was used by Stacy Peralta, a pro skateboarder in 1977. The Quicksilver was the first deck Powell made and was a successful design, but the rapid changing market made it “out of style” less than a year after it was introduced. According to Powell, the quicksilver utilizes very high strength 7000 series aluminum alloy skins very low elongation, epoxied to hard maple cores to achieve the best strength to weight ratio. The result was a deck that turned quicker than a fiber flex and was a little stronger and less resistant to breaking. United States: California, Santa Barbara.
