Ride Kink 2017

The Ride Kink is a soft flexing jib board, that now has a twin hybrid camber profile, for a bit more stability. Made for jibbing, it has a really soft flex (2/10) and the thicker Cleave Edge edges.

Features of the Ride Kink 2017

  • Twin Hybrid Camber
    A twin shape means that the board is symmetrical, so it will ride just the same in the regular and switch directions. Overall the profile of the board is camber, with just a small rocker section on the tip and tail of the board.

  • Roll In Slimewalls
    The Roll In version of the slimewalls has a 3d fiberglass built around the regular urethane slimewalls. It is designed to make the board stronger, keep the weight down as well as stop the topsheet chipping.
  • Foundation Core
    A simple core, that is made of Aspen wood.
  • Cleave Edge Steel
    Basically these are thicker edges, the thicker they are, the less likely they are to crack from hard riding. Good for park and job boards like this, which are going to be ridden on rails.
  • Biaxial Glass
    Two directions of glass, 0 and 90 degrees. They keep the board soft, fun and forgiving.
  • Fusion 1500 Base
    A simple extruded base material, which keeps the cost of the board down, and is easy to repair if you do damage it.
  • 2×4 Inserts
  • Flat Kick Tip
