1) The 6x outer TDI holes have been slightly enlarged so the lock washers can pass through the holes with your allen key instead of fishing them from the inside of the channel. This includes the counterbores where the washers seat, allowing them to tighten totally flush, evenly distributing and increasing the pressure on the TDI joint. This means it will stay tighter, longer and stronger and easier to install.

2) The lower wheel well cut-out has been enlarged and reshaped to allow both better brake hardware access and to accommodate all Next-Generation “square/flat” 30mm wheel profiles from River and PROTO; currently sampled with the new @RiverWheelCo 115×30.

3) Graphic update: 6 for 6-Inch replaced with II for Version 2.

4) Batch Numbering: Now that production is totally in-house we can control when and how many of each DEX we produce, we will begin marking them in a way for you to identfy when your product was made and also for us to monitor our Quality Control and trace back any manufacturing issues should they arise. Collectors can contact us or @AndrewBroussard for designations and identifications.

ATTENTION: [DECK-ENDS] MUST be ridden with ALL TDI DEX or the Warranty will be voided!
