The beveled edges let the toes dig in for quick turns.

good obeservation robo.
henrik got the old gog shape stretched to a hybrid.
i used this template for the stealth-major differences from a regular board are:
the weight-the stealth is way lighter than any average board
the torsional stiffness-the stealth is superstiff-in all directions
the turnability-the stealth is the board for superhard courses,definitely the best out there for any challenging course.made possible by integrating 45 degree sidewalls,where your toes can wrap on-steve already gave a good description on that feature.


we use a p-camber for the board and it has a multiple torsion box layup inside.the board itself is only foam and fibre to say so,but still not fragile.this is my anser to turner and what turner whould be these days if they were still around-hence the typo we use for the board.
you will see a few around the world this year,maybe you get the chance to ride one.

When I first saw this board I thought. Hmmmm no wings for my rear foot. How can this be an improvement? Is there still room for a board to be improved?? Haven't we reached the end of the line by now? But I trusted that there must be something to it. Then I heard Markus was riding one. I thought oh no --- he's too fast already. He's going to World's!!!!! I better get one!!!!! I placed my order and waited. But Donald was still refining the design. Now it's done.

I've been riding it the last couple weeks. The beveled edges really do something I never expected. My toes dig right in and help to push into the board for quicker turns and more powerful pumping. This board is my new board for complicated -quick - difficult -technical courses.

hmmmm yes,cat
i want to be homnest about the edges:
i'm not a genius or anything,i guess most of the stuff comes from simply trying out different approaches at one thing.
the 45 degree edges made sense in theory,in practice they blew me away.

so-this is really a good board!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very sexyful Donald, I'm sure I'll see Markus blazing the course in Holland on his!

Is it a type of spray-on grip?
