The cable kingpin that started the craze of varying flex. This Kinetik has a super soft belly but the rigid tip/tail gives the rider more snap off a feature and on-air tricks. A design with less rocker for infinite top water speed, reduced drag and more overall contact. Features the exact same core, outline, and rocker as the Springbox 2 – but has totally different flex points
We came to a point where not everybody was happy with one traditional flex zone because of their personal riding styles, so we analyzed how a broad range of riders ollie, flex, and release off the water and features. The result was a need to have some boards with pressure points in the center, and others in the tip/tail.
Targeted Flex Zones
For the rider that wants the same distinct flex and rebound points every time. This rider wants to have a soft tip/ tail for more technical presses and recoil off a feature.
Directional Wood Laminates
Several of our boards are made out of a similar wood – but they differ in the grain direction. Sometimes the goal of a board is to have a softer mid section so we have the wood running horizontally and vice versa for a stiffer belly. The same goes for the ends of the board. No two wood board series are made with the same grain layup.
The most durable non-stick base material we have ever tested on features, and has increased glide speed on the water. Our exclusive base was formulated from a powder by heating the material in a sintering furnace above its melting point until the particles bond to one another. A higher purity compound that preserves its bond overtime. No obstacle is safe at cable parks with our jib friendly base material.
An earlier arc with a mellower degree will have a smoother, more consistent glide up the wake. A rider will be able to carry more speed up the transition and land tricks farther out into the flats. Not quite the straight up snap of its counterpart, but a rider will have a faster, more predictable, effortless take off.
