ABoards Kiteboarding Snowkiteboard 2009/10


Snow kite board 2009/2010 differs from previous year’s model. More attention has been paid to outline, core, top and bottom sheets in order to construct a board that will fit for freestyle/freeride riding. The new board range has a dynamic radius in a range of 8-9m, which allows the board to have great maneuverability, easy jibing and performance of freestyle moves in contrast to race type boards. The new board has balanced flex  to ensure good pop and pleasant landings, however in central part of the board along both edges there are special stringers embedded into the core so that the board can keep the grip on the edge at higher speeds and loads while riding with kite. The board has special base cover to withstand high loads. Top sheet is from new type of glossy material to ensure excellent look and durability. All boards have transparent technology window on top where core is visible. Core is mixed type wood and stringers. Waist parameters: 147cm (252mm), 155cm (258mm), 158cm (264mm). Stance width 52-68cm.

Retail price 349 EUR.
