The new xFaction’s big addition to CWB’s design repertoire occurs in the rail and part line. The rail along the belly of the board is really squared off, then it shaves down to a sharp edge in the tip and tail, creating better edge-to-edge transition and speed. The part line, where the deck and bottom graphics meet along the board’s edge, is the Achilles heel of many boards. Once the edge gets a little beat up from hitting rails and obstacles, the board’s strength is compromised, no matter what it’s made of. The xFaction edge has a slight bevel along the bottom of the board so it never makes contact when hitting structures. Plus, the part line is halfway up the edge of the xFaction, making it incredibly durable.
