A GROM PARK MACHINE.
We are proud to unveil a kid’s board with the first of its kind – a spine. For the past couple of seasons, we have been developing a new flex pattern where the strength runs the way a stringer does on a surfer, from tip to tail then leaves the majority of the outer surface area with a much softer horizontal wood. With the Atmos you have a pivot point running the length of the board, not just in specific pockets, allowing most of the board to comply from side to side. Bigger ollies, easier transfers, and our most conforming side to side flex.
VERTICAL WOOD SPINE / HORIZONTAL OUTER WOOD
TIP/TAIL: 66 | CENTER: 56
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.
