The CWB Absolute Wakeboard:
Chances are at some point in your riding you have either ridden an Absolute, or a shape created from one. Known as one of the most influential shapes in our industries short life, the Absolute is again delivered with a twelve-year veterans seal of approval. Knowing what sells and what is best for the industry, Zane has always created shapes that not only ride well for the beginner, but also perform for the ripper. Zane has been with us for twelve years and has been a huge influence on our brand as well as the industry as a whole. From being an innovator in the sport, knowing what it takes for a shape to be successful, and teaching more people to ride than Ron Jeremy, we appreciate what he does and has done every day.
The latest Absolute shape continues the tradition of awesome. The 08 uses longer molded fins that have a cupped shape adding additional bite on edge. We also added a turned down rail for additional edge lock as well as a slight cupped rail to make this a hard edger with a forgiving ride when flat. The Absolute was the first shape to use a center spine for landings, and now most every shape on the market has one. Also, CWB was the first to innovate top shaping used in the Absolute and now this tech is also used on almost every board in the industry. Using flex pattern technology called X Flex, this board has been proven to do what it takes to progress the rider and spring off the wake better than ever. If you haven''t yet noticed, the Absolute has continually set the standard for what makes a shape perform the best. Innovations like spine''s, cupped molded fins, turned down rails, top shaping, as well as being endorsed by someone who can ride a unicycle down stairs, demo the 08 Absolute. It will make you ride better.
The CWB Faction Wakeboard Bindings:
The change starts now. The new 6 plate trims roughly two pounds per pair of boots. The new Lock Jaw system that is 60% lighter. The new Hinge movement cleans up the boot dubbed the Switch Hinge. Houndstooth! Say it isn''t so!! The 2008 Faction boot is beautiful. Using the new 6 Plate, this boot is light. When partnered with the Faction board, you can''t keep your eyes off of it. The Faction is a lower cut boot that has been designed to be a soft upper to give the ability to poke that toe five. We have found a fabric compound that flexes like that of rubber but maintains the fresh look of leather. What does this do for you? It enables you to ride a boot that looks money, but will allow you to release out of your boot on a hard fall so your ankles don''t scream at you.
