Prepare to blend up a veritable frappé of tricks on this soft-flexing true twin. Its edges are detailed with a catch-free "Rail-Ready" tune right out of the wrapper. Plus, the buttery smooth scoop nose and tail make presses, takeoffs, and landings smooth as a milkshake.

Tester feedback:

"Really fun, comfortable board. One of the smoothest park boards I've ridden."

"Great to jump—will save you in a sticky situation."

Available sizes: 141, 145, 151, 154
