Twintip board for freestyle and big air

Postby X-Fly » Wed Jan 18, 2023 8:39 pm

Hello,

I am looking for a new twintip board for unhooked freestyle and big air, both used with straps.

For the moment, I use the Blankforce Enduro v2 : I really like this board for its light weight, very good grip and pop ! But it misses a bit of stiffness for unhooked freestyle and has a small lack of comfort in reception.

The first board I thought is the Duotone Team Series, because the shape is very close to the Enduro, except the diffusor in the middle of the bottom. I suppose this board has a bit more stiffness, but is it not too more stiffness to ride with straps ?

The others candidates are :
- North Focus
- Lieuwe Oceana
- Eleveight AG PRO
- Cabrinha XCal Carbon

So if you use one of these boards, please share us your feedback and experiences (in straps if possible ;))

Have a good evening !

One consideration to add is Duotone Jaime, should fulfill your demands. I've owned this board too short time to give you good overview and compare it with my previous boards, but from first test ride it left me good impression how this board holds edge and pops.

Hello !

Thanks for your reply ! I rode the Jaime & Jaime Textreme during several years. It is a really good board with good grip and pop. But the rocker is a bit small (about 3 cm), so except for riding on very flat spots, I think it is not a board manageable for all conditions.

Hey, consider a crazyfly raptor extreme, that has the rocker and edge which sounds much like you are looking for.

I find the Shinn Monk very good for both.
