Skatelite


All of the ramps in the Manitowoc Skatepark are surfaced with a wood compsite called SkateLite and are warrantied for life by our contractor, TrueRide. Skatelite is the world’s leading manufacturer of ramp surfaces used by the top skaters, BMX riders, action sports camps and competitions. The surface is produced by Richlite, a manufacturer of surface materials for aerospace and industrial purposes since 1946. Smooth, fast, durable and aesthetically pleasing, it’s the ideal surface material for indoor or outdoor ramps. Skatelite offers four different surface materials appropriate for a variety of riding environments and budgets. All ramps at the Manitowoc Skatepark

Skatelite is something city officials, park builders, managers and riders agree upon. Here’s why

Less Friction: Skatelite is the smoothest riding surface. Reduced friction results in fewer skin abrasions (or ramp rash) common with other surfaces.

Safe Temperature: Metal ramps overheat in direct sunlight and may cause skin burns. Skatelite stays a comfortable temperature in any condition.

Fire Resistant: Skatelite is fire resistant and self extinguishes even under intense flames.

Cleaner Friendly: Skatelite is unaffected by paint thinners and chemicals. It maintains its smooth finish even after the clean up crew removes graffiti.

Maintenance Free: Skatelite is long lasting despite excessive use and punishing weather conditions. If damage is done, the material can easily be replaced.
