The Tunglok Deck Integration System, or TDI by PROTO, was first introduced to the scooter world in 2010 with the debut of the Orion Neck & Orion Deck. It has since undergone extensive development and improvements including a significant update to the TDI Hardware in 2019 with the debut of the TDI”th” Threaded Hardware. This system is not just a typical welded deck, it is a Patented System of compatibility for joining a Neck and a Deck Plate as two separate and replaceable components. Despite all of the cosmetic and geometrical TDI compatibility has remained the same, meaning that all PROTO TDI components are interchangeable with newer and older models. RETRO FUTURISTIC!
OrionTH Neck (2019)
Revolutionary Design – Neck Angle: 84° – Made in the USA – US Patent #8,528,921
The future contains less parts. The Integrated OrionTH Neck is the first publicly available Neck in the TDI family of components to feature the new TDIth Hardware which drastically improves the strength and longevity of the TDI System. Full billet CNC!
TDIth Hardware Pack
Hold It Together – US Patent #8,528,921
Includes: 6x TDIth Threaded Pins and 6x Lock Washers to ensure they stay tight. TDIth Harware must be tightened to 40lbs-ft using a 6mm Allen Key for proper installation and use.
Space 2 Deck (2017)
Revolutionary Design – 5″ Wide x 21″ 22″ 23″ 24′ Long – Made in the USA – US Patent #8,528,921
The PROTO Space 2 Decks are 5” wide and are the longest production deck in the industry with more foot space and improved front blunt geometry specifically designed for high speed slaying. Like its predecessor, the PROTO Orion Deck, the PROTO Space Deck has revolutionized scooter construction and compatibility featuring our Patented TDI, Patented UBS, and FM Tech.
Reinforce & Replace – Flush Mount Technology – Made in the USA
Deck-Ends are a scooter part that were designed and named by PROTO and are one of the key components in the Flush Mount Technology System (FM Tech) as well as the TDI System and are a natural extension of the Decks back end that help reinforce and protect your Deck’s drop-outs. As opposed to the regular wear and tear of drop outs on a regular Deck and the cost of replacing an entire One-Piece Deck, Deck-Ends allow for easy replacement at a minimal cost as well as maximize the lifespan of your Deck.
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.
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.
TDI (TUNGLOK DECK INTEGRATION) – PATENTED #8,528,921
TDI is a System of compatibility. This System was designed so that the Deck and Neck are separate components that are joined together with a tongue and groove interlock with bolts to keep everything in place. The TDI system allows for interchangeable Neck and Deck components allowing for maximum customization and upgrades. When your deck wears out with the TDI System you only need to replace the Deck itself instead of the entire Neck Deck assembly like a one piece deck which costs you less money and saves the planet a little bit each time! Watch the original TDI Debut Video to learn how it works.
UBS (UNIVERSAL BRAKING SYSTEM) – PATENTED #9,723,860
The new Patented 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) – [DECK-ENDS]
The PROTO Orion and Space Decks are the world’s first Decks to feature Flush Mount Technology and Deck-Ends. 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 Deck-Ends which provide superior impact support all the way to your drop-outs. With Flush Mount Technology, the Deck-End Diameter is now standardized so the dropouts of the deck can perfectly contoured to fit your Deck-Ends which allows the full width of your deck extrusion to provide an additional level of support on Deck-End impact. PROTO will be offering Deck-Ends in a variety of lengths and materials to suit your riding preference!
