Quatro Drifter V1, V1.1, V1.2

Postby beebad » Tue Oct 05, 2021 1:03 pm

Does anyone know the difference in the versions of this wing board ?

Seems odd that I find the different versions all in the same year.

Any ideas?

I could be wrong, but my understanding is that V1.1 has more footstrap inserts (allows for Y setup) and V1.2 is beefier construction on the rails. All generations are all the same shape and graphics.

Yes indeed. Thank you.
I have been in contact with a distributor and I asked the same question. Here is their response:

Good question. The v1.1 is 2 lbs lighter but it is not very durable, V1.1 also has just asymmetric footstraps. V1.2 was a durability update with the addition of Y footraps inserts.

I also understand that quatro will get rebranded to the KT line but the board shape and likely board color will remain the same.

Is this a good choice for a wing board?
