Paulownia wood core with Ghost Stringers, sculpted sidewalls, die-cut base

What It Means for You

The all-wood core with Ghost Stringers system provides a balance of flex and responsivity. The die-cut base eliminates the need for a base graphic, which reduces weight. Plus, who doesn’t want their own meme?

What’s New

Variable flex along the rocker line, Mod Pour foam core, Magic Carpet fiberglass, sintered

What It Means for You

With a thicker and stiffer belly, and thinner and flexier tips, riders are able to rock into presses with ease. Similar to the Kinetik Flexbox 2, but with a larger sweet spot and more affordable price. Nice in the park and nice for your wallet — that’s a solid combo.

New shape featuring larger sizes, triple stringer wood/polyurethane core, FlexTrack binding mount, Liquid Rails sidewall
