The Kink is designed for a specific type of snowboarding. If you are looking at snowboards thinking to yourself “That looks awesome, but I’m going to wreck that board.” The Kink is the snowboard for you. Cleave Edge™ Steel edges are made from 50% thicker steel to take the abuse of hitting rails, riding down stairs, bonking things not covered in snow, and all of the other fun things that ruin a snowboard. Roll-In Slimewalls® are urethane sidewalls designed to damp high speed vibration, but more importantly on the Kink, add durability to resist blown edges when hitting rails or tomahawking down the stairs. This board is designed for a rider looking for a soft-flexing twin that is overbuilt to put up with the abuse of freestyle snowboarding, specifically the type of freestyle riding that will wreck your shit.
