Ripper Watercolour - 130mm Polar Bears & 63mm 78a Fatty Hawgs - more agility & is better for carving.
The Ripper is an 8/10 Flex, 1 being STIFF and 10 being FLEXY!
So, what’s flex and why is it important to a skateboard? In skate-nerd terms, flex is the amount of displacement a deck sees when a specific amount of force is applied to it.
It’s important to understand flex when choosing a board.
Here are some basics:
- Downhill/freeride skateboards will have less flex because you need a stiff platform to stand on when you’re bombing or gripping a corner at speed.
- Carving skateboards will have more flex, giving you the ability to sink into your turns and pump or carve with ease.
- Most cruisers, dance and ATV boards will have less flex for control when doing tricks but just enough to be forgiving when pushing around town.
