Stepchild Jib Stick RETT Snowboard 2012
The Jib Stick comes with Trojan Rubber 2.0 impact strips embedded in the sidewall. The RETT is an edge detuning process that dulls the edge between your bindings so you don't have to. You can basically throw bindings on this and take it straight to the streets. The Twin shape and the Rocker profile combined with the stability of the Kicker III core make this one of the best jib boards on the market today. The Armadillo Plate binding reinforcement will help prevent insert blowouts. This board also comes with a Snag-Free base. If you suck at jibbing and want to get a whole lot better, the Jib Stick will improve your jibbing skills.
The 2011-2012 Stepchild Jib Stick RETT Men's Snowboard key features:
Rocker 4, 6 + 8mm: Reverse Camber - This board is pressed to resemble the bottom of a rocking chair. The rocker gives the board an easy riding feel as it is "pre-flexed" going into turns. It works well for parks, jibs and powder days. Stepchild bracketed the rocker to the board size this year; 4mm - 143 & 148, 6mm - 153 and 8mm - 156.
Round Edge Tapered Tuning (RETT) - Straight from the factory, the boards come with pre-dulled edges between the bindings that gradually get sharper as they approach the nose and tail. No need to wear anything down, these boards are ready for double-kink rails straight off the shelf.
Kicker III Core - This is a poplar wood core with beech rails and beech insert strips. Tip-to-tail fully computerized milled and profiled poplar core gives a smooth and consistent flex pattern. The denser Beech wood re-enforced rails give the board stable edge control and a poppy flex. The insert strips are for compression strength where the corners of the bindings normally crush the wood core. Stepchild uses 4 strips of high-density beech to increase the strength in this critical zone.
Trojan 2.0 Sidewalls - Exclusive to the Jib Stick, Trojan Rubber 2.0 features two rubber strips inserted in the board's sidewall to act as a shock absorber.
Armadillo Plate - A diamond shaped extra layer of fiberglass is placed over the inserts to help prevent insert blowouts. The unique diamond shape strengthens the board around the inserts without interrupting the flex pattern.
Snag Free Base - These bases are hardened in the press by a temperature control system that cooks the base harder as it sandwiches the board. The base material comes out of the press much harder than it went in. Snag Free bases have no die cuts or joints in the base material which is usually how the board will snag.
