FREERIDE / FREESTYLE
The Raptor has been designed as the ultimate high performance freeride freestyle board. It now has a brand new Multi Channel bottom shape and V tips giving it an amazing blend of speed and grip. The new Step Cap deck technology allows for thinner rails for better edging and fantastic upwind performance. New for 2017 is the Nano Glide Skin, a series of micro channels that help the board track and improves upwind capabilities. It also helps the board glide and generate speed easier as well as being much more resistant to scratches. The new construction that utilizes multi axial fiberglass and X Carbon gives it a more comfortable ride, that still has a great pop. The Raptor works best with Hexa Bindings for unmatched comfort and board feel. The Raptor is also compatible with wake bindings.
Due to MULTIAXIAL FIBER GLASS the board has more flex in torsion and still remains very strong, as the fibers reinforce the board in multiple directions.
The new STEP CAP allows for thinner rails which enhance the upwind and tracking abilities of the board.
The New X CARBON CONSTRUCTION makes the board stiffer and more responsive in off-axis directions which provides amazing pop while the board does not feel too stiff.
The new V TIPS SHAPE provides for excellent upwind and plenty of grip for loading up jumps.
The new NANO GLIDE SKIN on the bottom of the Raptor consists of micro channels on this foil help the board track and go upwind better. The foil has better gliding properties and generates speed quicker, plus it is more resistant to scratches.
