THE GO-TO SNOWBOARD FOR RIDE’S RAIL SQUAD, THE KINK CAN HANDLE ANY AND ALL METROPOLITAN TERRAIN WITH EASE
The Kink is a street machine. Designed with a focus on predictability and durability for urban and park riding, the KINK is at home on handrails and jibs. The Kink is the board of choice for Jed Anderson and many team riders when riding in the street. The Extra Camber profile has camber underfoot for pop and smooth turn initiation with a minimal amount of rocker at the tip for predictable catch-free performance. A Quadratic Sidecut provides predictability and edge hold. Slimewalls® and Cleave Edge™ provide a smoother ride and increased durability. The sintered base is harder and more durable. The Kink is a board designed for modern freestyle and street performance.
Twin Hybrid Camber A true twin shape hybrid profile that has more camber than rocker.
Liner Quadractic Sidecut A directional sidecut utilizing Quadratic curvature from the tip to the rear insert pack, then progressing into a linear section into the tail. This creates smooth catch-free turn initiation and powerful support through the turn exit without losing grip.
Sintered Base High-end sintered 4000 Ptex base material that is more durable, harder and faster than extruded.
Performance Core High strength Aspen is combined with Bamboo and lightweight Paulownia wood to provide the perfect balance of strong and light.
Carbon Slimewalls This totally unique sidewall combines layers of Slimewalls® material and carbon strategically placed at the inserts out to the contact points in the tip and tail on a twin, and the back inserts to the contact points in the tail on a directional board. This exclusive tech enhances the charging rider’s experience as we have moved the carbon pop construction to the outside edge for better stability and enhanced response.
Roll In Construction Unique 3D structure built around our urethane Slimewall® sidewalls. Designed to increase overall board strength, prevent topsheet chipping, and reduce weight.
Cleave Edge Steel Nearly 50% more steel, delivers unmatched resistance to edge cracking and can be detuned to larger radii.
Biaxial Glass Fiberglass 90° and 0° angles, fun and forgiving.
Impact Plates Laminates Added underneath each binding area to improve compressive strength and prevent board breaks where it matters most. Offered in two levels, Single and Double.
