Gravity Air Core 3
THE WOMEN'S ANSWER TO PROGRESSIVE PARK RIDING BY JULIA RICK.
The sport’s most dominant women’s rider continues to occupy the top spot on the podium, while pushing the boundaries of inventing new tricks. Julia loves the feeling of the Kinetik Project with finite tip/tail pressure points but wanted one with considerably less swing weight, so we proudly present an all Air Core version that is nearly 2 lbs. lighter and has more flex than its wood counterpart. This Flexbox 2 design is perfect for female riders looking for more technical presses and the added energy of its unique Italian imported construction.

TARGETED TIP/TAIL FLEX ZONE
TIP/TAIL: 48 | CENTER: 75
HOW MUCH DOES IT FLEX?
Some boards are more adaptive on the water and features with a softer flex pattern. Others feel more secure and stable but aren’t as adaptive on rails.
WHERE DOES IT FLEX?
Where the board flexes is personal preference that will come overtime. Most of our cable boards have a leverage point where a certain part of the board compresses until the fulcrum kicks in with snap back. The most common 4 flex patterns are…
Made with vertical Paulownia stringers running tip to tail, the core tapers from the middle of the board to the ends, creating a variable flex that increases the yield in a press.
In the tip/tail of the board, we have varying depths that will allow the board to bend easier and with more exaggeration. With Springbox those high points are made from extruded rods that give a rider more spring out of their press.
Over several seasons we developed different styles of stringers acting as a spine for the board. Riders are looking for the energy to transfer from the tail and drive through the tip. They also want a board that will conform and adapt from side to side without sacrificing durability.
ALL OVER FLEX
For the rider that wants the whole board to bend - creating the most surface area on a rail - and knows the board won’t have a rigid fulcrum point that will help with the snap back.
