No tracks. I had them put inserts in for Cloud 9/Liquid Force and Zeeko. I always ride the Cloud 9 and Zeeko foils with my rear foot directly over the rear inserts.

I don’t have a scale but I would call it “stupid light” and very stiff.

With no straps inserts he can be sure that no jumping forces will apply 😉

I've seen a number of dwarfcraft boards with durability issues that needed to be repaired or replaced. Cracked tracks, leaky footstrap inserts that take on water and delam. Typical for chineese made pop outs. Surprised this has not been mentioned in this thread yet...
