The PROTO Tunglok Deck Integration System, also known as “TDI”, was first introduced to the scooter world in 2010 with the debut of the Orion Deck. TDI is not just a deck, it is a patented system of compatibility for mating a headtube (neck) to a deck as two independent components. Since the original release of the Orion Deck the neck/deck components have changed performance wise as well as aesthetically, but TDI compatibility has remained the same, meaning that all PROTO TDI components are interchangeable with newer and older models. RETRO FUTURISTIC!
TDI (TUNGLOK DECK INTEGRATION) – US PATENT #8,528,921
TDI is a system of compatibility. This system was designed so that the deck and neck/headtube are separate components that are mated together utilizing a tongue and groove system with bolts to keep everything in place. The TDI system allows for interchangeable neck/decks allowing for maximum customization and upgrades of a single deck or neck. When your deck wears out on a TDI system you only need to replace the deck itself instead of the entire neck/deck assembly like a one piece deck. Watch the original TDI Debut Video to learn how it works.
UBS (UNIVERSAL BRAKING SYSTEM) PATENT PENDING
The new Patent Pending PROTO Universal Braking System (UBS) is an update from the original 6-hole UBS system from 2010. The new UBS SLOT is the the world’s first fully adjustable brake mounting system, integrated into the deck itself, that allows for your brake size and weight to be minimized while still providing the flexibility for you to run any size wheel on your deck while also letting you fine tune your brake sensitivity. Nuts, washers and sockets have been eliminated with its integrated threads. Simply loosen the bolts with an Allen key, slide the brake lever to your desired position and tighten it down! UBS technology is featured on all PROTO Orion and Space decks.
FM TECH (FLUSH MOUNT TECHNOLOGY)
The PROTO Orion and Space decks are the world’s first decks to feature Flush Mount Technology. FM Tech allows you to trash your old “cone” shaped pegs which are notorious for bending axles and being incompatible with wider decks and allows you to start using straight Cylindrical Pegs and Deck-Ends which provide superior impact support all the way to your drop-outs. With Flush Mount Technology, the Peg/Deck-End Diameter is now standardized so the dropouts of the deck can perfectly contoured to fit your Pegs and Deck-Ends which allows the full width of your deck extrusion to provide an additional level of support on Peg/Deck-End impact. PROTO will be offering Pegs and Deck-Ends in a variety of materials from plastic to aluminum to steel, so your options will be virtually endless to suit any riding style or preference!

Reinforce & Replace – Flush Mount Technology – Made in the USA
Made specifically for the PROTO Space Deck, deck ends are a natural extension of the decks back end that help reinforce and protect your deck’s drop-outs.

UBS (Universal Braking System) Brake Set (TSI Collaboration)
Adjust & Fine Tune – TSI/PROTO Collab – Made in the USA – Patent Pending
In an effort to help cross promote and support other companies who we have enormous respect for, we have incorporated the TSI scooters brake set! This brake features integrated threads so only a 4mm allen key is required to make adjustments and is infinitely adjustable in all PROTO TDI decks using the adjustable UBS slide slot. Fits up to 125mm wheels.
Grind & Slide – Flush Mount Technology – Made in the USA
The PROTO Heat-Treated 4130 Chromoly “Silencer” Pegs are 1″ in diameter and are the industries first flush mount pegs. The increased surface area touching the deck creates more support for the dropouts, less flex on the axle and a quieter vibration free grind allowing the deck, axle and pegs to grind longer and smoother. Ask Chema. Silencer Pegs are only compatible with flush mount drop outs such as those found on the PROTO Orion and Space decks.
