2010 Overview: CWB completely rethought its top wakeboard five boots for 2010, introducing the third generation of its Hinge technology and taking a giant leap forward in the looks department. Andrew Adkison’s and Trevor Hansen’s new boots — the AA and Marius, respectively — lead the way, followed by the Answer, Faction and women’s Ember. With its mesh wrap, the Answer is the lightest of the bunch, weighing in at 1 pound, 7 ounces. But all five are incredibly lightweight, thanks in part to the new Gen6-Plate, which is CWB’s narrowest and lightest plate ever. In the board department, CWB is debuting a new Gabe Lucas pro model, the Vibe, as well as an ultra-light, tech-heavy board called the DB9. Lucas designed the Vibe to reflect his riding style, which means it had to be equally at home on rails and on the wake. As a result, the board features a host of rail-friendly features, including ABS sidewalls, super-durable X-Trans base, and flex construction. Thanks to its PWC/bamboo core, the new DB9 wakeboard weighs in at less than 6 pounds, making it the lightest in the CWB line. As for wakeskates, Stu Shinn has a new pro model wood concave, the Four.19, while Matt Manzari takes ownership of the Onset, which now features an ABS-wrapped bottom deck for extra durability.
