The wear resistance of the longboard backpack is very important because it may accidentally fall when skateboarding, no one wants it to break. The deck of a skateboard is made of maple or bamboo fiber, prolonged exposure to water can lead to decay and even reduced intensity. The wheels of the skateboard contain bearings, and in addition to the need for regular lubrication and maintenance, also need to pay attention to waterproofing. The battery and circuit of the electric skateboard also need to be away from water to avoid short circuits or rain corrosion, so the waterproof function of the longboard backpack fabric is very necessary.
