New for 2014 is a totally re designed electronic hot lap cable special deck. Last year with the help from engineers and riders in 6 different countries and came out with a 90° turning, rail shredding aquatic device. Cable riders usually ride 4 mph slower, so you need to make up for that in added buoyancy. This board runs longer - so if you usually ride a 142 “boat” board - demo the 146.3 in this shape. A fast, flatter rocker means more contact with rails for added control, and along with the steeper sidewalls allows the board to ride higher with more glide speed. Plus longer boards are funner to press out. Boat boards are designed to set an edge, and constantly build an arc as you progress into the wake. Cable riders who do air tricks you want to set and maintain an arc without adding onto the angle. This way you have a predictable take off around the bend, landing with more forward momentum. A cable rider has to leverage into an ollie, or press onto a rail but just as important (which gets overlooked) is it has to snap back too. So you want to have more control, feel, and yes “flex” on a cable board - but only if it has a pivot point.
So Ronix sourced this fancy new paulownia environmentally conscious short harvest time energetic new resourceful tree and a maple stringer running down the length and shaped it up into bits and pieces of rockers and rails. Then added their diamond glass - having a thin tip/tail shape and a really light glass in the tip and tail exaggerates everything you need on a cable. As a rider locks onto a rail the energy but is than able to leverage off signature magic carpet lay up. This past off season Ronix built their own R&D facility to ride and research behind the boat or the cable park – Lake Ronix. Thru all of their cable testing there they stumbled upon 2 big advancements. 1. They added foam cut outs in the middle of the board – this helps reduce those big impacts on landings when you fall from the sky on a kicker. 2. They swapped the layout of the Paulownia wood on the ends of the board to run horizontally. Now the wood is bending with the rider on a nose press – and not restricting the motion. A cable board without all of the meaningless chirps of a traditional wood “flex” board. Ride with wit ha fulcrum and unique individual pressure points.
- Concave Bottom Tips - Effortless ollies and more controlled presses
- G&R Technology - Grip and Release channels have all the traction you need for boat or cable riding without creating unneeded resistance with the water
- G&R Part 2 - side to side stability and allow a rider to control a flick easier at a cable park
- Thinnest Profile - More feel for consistency on all types of surfaces
- Finless - Too big of a fi n and a board gets hung up on rails
- Nocturnal Run - We have a small run with recessed lights running thru the board
- ABS-less - Krypto cable prevents delams, but unlike ABS it doesn't trap as much resin, so you have a lighter board that is just as strong
- 4 fiberglass babooshka fins and 4 fiberglass utility fins
