Founded in 2003 by engineer/designer Alexandre Fougea, the brand Akonite features all kinds of gliding devices made of composites materials with a strong design identity and eco consciousness. The last addition to their range is a cruiser skateboard with a stunning look, ideal for all urban commutes.
Akonite has used ampliTex flax fabrics in their wood sandwich construction. The most performing natural fibre cloth available on the market with non-weaved structure. Flax is a truly sustainable fibre, produced in Europe, with superior mechanical properties than the high energy consuming glass fibres.
