How we got our name

Ryan spent the summer following his freshman year designing, wiring and building a hot press to make a carbon fiber skateboard. Reaching the 121 degrees Celsius required to cure the epoxy was a real challenge. After conquering that temperature threshold, the name 121C just stuck. Since that time almost two years ago, we have upgraded our old wooden hot press to a newer aluminum tool!

Sticking with the aerospace theme, we chose to name our board after the aileron on an airplane. An aileron is the surface on the back of a wing that allows a plane to turn and maneuver.

Much like the aileron that drives the turning of an airplane, our skateboard is made for smooth turns and a fun cruise.
