Testers' Ratings

Always on point, it is the most dynamic twin tip board - from freestyle to freeride. The supports are still stable and controlled while its famous pop remains legendary.

Which board can pride itself on a longevity comparable to that of Skate Banana? Since its inception, this one of a kind model remains at the forefront and still sweeps off an Ace! This board established this trend and continues to prove its relevance with a strong rocker in the center and soft camber under your foot. Notably it allows to combine stability in the core to an ultra-lively tip which can deliver a controlled and aerial ollie. It is fast and revolving in all freestyle maneuvers with guaranteed direct but easy reactions. Its intuitive riding feature is achievable with balancing supports on two feet, but we can also split up the supports. This will allow making use of its fully rich control - close to an all-mountain board. This makes it a universal board that suits everyone - from park rats to newbies and pros – and it covers such a wide range of styles - from freestyle to freeride.
