Kinetik Project Springbox 2
A FAST ROCKER, DEEP CHANNELS, AND A BOARD THAT WANTS TO REBOUND QUICKER TO ITS ORIGINAL SHAPE.
This Kinetik Project has a traditional mid-section and extra pliable ends for more of a locked in feel on presses and rebounding out of them. With cable boards you want leverage points where a certain part of the board compresses until the fulcrum kicks in with snap back. This series does that by allowing a rider to exaggerate their press with the softest flex numbers in the tip/tail – but as the press gains a high degree of angle, the center of the board prevents it from folding over. A design with less rocker for infinite top water speed, reduced drag, and more overall contact with the deepest G&R channels of any of our cable boards for extra traction. The cable kingpin design was created for an exaggerated technical nose/tail press with added snap back compared to a Utopia counterpart.

TARGETED TIP/TAIL FLEX
TIP/TAIL: 58 | CENTER: 85
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.
