Kite U.S. Forums _ Motor City Kiteboarding _ Twisted Snow Kiteboards are In, Hit Me Up

Posted by: ORK Nov 25 2008, 04:30 PM

Hit me up or order online at www.motorcitykiteboarding.com, I'll deliver locally/ship. Local legend Tom Sondej (Jahmi) is adding one to his repertoire. Here is the tech from the web:

The Velocity is designed specifically for the rigors of Snowkiting. The Posi + Rocker combined with an obtuse side-cut gives the Velocity the feeling of a surf board with an effective edge that is smooth in transitions and efficiently tracks when the edge is set. The blunt tips and wide body create a shape that functions naturally under kite power unlike a traditional snowboard that is constantly trying to turn while on edge, the Velocity cuts thru and floats on top of the snow, allowing for a less fatiguing session.

Sizes: 164cm
Colors: Red base with full Twisted graphic in black. Black top sheet with a white toe side stripe.
Price: $450



The technology inside the Velocity

Posi + Rocker The Velocity has a positive rocker, and this upward curve across the board helps with initiating turns at slow speeds and prevents edges from grabbing when riding flat.
Posi + Side Cut The positive and progressive side cut gives the Velocity its unique shape while providing plenty of contact between the edge and snow. The Posi + Side Cut allows the board to cut through and float over the snow efficiently while tracking very directly.
True Flex The Velocity has a constant flex pattern that extends from tip to tail allowing the deck to flex extensively, giving a natural and progressive carve to every turn. The constant flex increases the pop for improved freestyle, and acts like a shock absorber when traversing unfriendly snow conditions.
Shovel Nose The tips have been trimmed down in width to reduce the tendency for them to grab when on edge. These tips slice through the snow keeping the board above the snow and tracking directly, resulting in less vibration and a smoother ride, unlike a traditional snowboard that is constantly plowing and crashing thru the snow.
Phat Ass The Velocity has a 30cm wide Ass preventing toe and heel drag. It is also one of the reasons the Velocity feels so good in powder, due to the increased surface area the board rises to the surface easily to float on top, even at slower speeds.
164 cm Length With the thinner nose and wider body, the Velocity rides like a smaller snowboard, despite its impressive length. At 164 cm, it offers the perfect size for eating up rough surfaces, cutting cleanly across ice, and staying on top of deep snow.
Materials The Velocity is a high quality snowboard built in the USA. Constructed with a sintered base and a solid wood core laminated to our specifications. Triax and Biax laminates mixed with resins designed to reduce weight while retaining maximum strength. High-grade stainless steel inserts and carbon fiber stringers round out the Velocity adding up to one of the most well built boards on the market.
