The Catalyst series features our new hybrid EVA/Griptape pad, giving a rider the best of both worlds – soft EVA to sink into and Griptape sections on tip and tail for added traction. The Catalyst also features our most pronounced concave; this bigger pocket gives a rider more pressure to leverage off of. The Catalyst line of decks is made with twice as much glass as any of our other wakeskates for more control throughout the entire board. This increased weight helps a rider – whether doing a shuv-it, kick flip or an indy off the double-up. The Catalyst series also comes standard with a bevel on the bottom to prevent the infamous “edge catch.” It’s Hyperlite’s most universal, high-end shape, designed by Brian Grubb.
