Since being started in 2006 by Wakeboarding kingpins Parks Bonifay and Danny Harf, Ronix Wakeboards has created an undeniably fantastic reputation for creating some of the most high performance, yet reliable equipment on the market. Ronix pride themselves on building equipment that doesnâ€™t quite conform to the usual wakeboarding guidelines, bringing both creativity and science together has helped them design some of the most remarkable products out there to date.
Here at S2AS we believe in stocking only the highest quality equipment on the market, so when it came to choosing what brands to stock this year; Ronix was a no-brainer. The only hard part was choosing which of their fantastic models of boots and boards we should take, but after much deliberation we came to a conclusion. So here they are.
A board that has a continuous flex from tip to tail and rail to rail. The cable beast from Ronix for 2017 continuesÂ delivering the ultimate in board feel and top water speed. Offering greater durability and reduced friction on the water with theirÂ signature Speedwalls, they took the Kinetik SeriesÂ from last year and replaced the foam with wood â€“ but most importantly theyÂ added Flexbox. RonixÂ realised that there are 2 styles of high end park riders which is why theyÂ created Flexbox 1 and Flexbox 2, each with distinct pressure points on features and leaving the water, in turn tailoring to each and every rider on the cable. Flexbox 1 is created for riders that like a softer mid section allowing the centre of the board to really bend into a press. Once in a press, the slightly stiffer tip/tail allows the rider to really pivot off the feature. Through the S2ASÂ testing we have also found that this model has more of a solid snap off kickers, and works better for air tricks due toÂ a rider needing added support when they flick off the end of the board.
On any given day there could be hundreds ofÂ pro riders riding at theÂ local cable park. Through these 100â€™s of hours of testing, it really became clear to the S2ASÂ TeamÂ that in the ever-changing cable world that there are 2 high end styles. The 2nd styleÂ features the exact same construction, profile, and rocker as the Flexbox 1, but has totally different pressure points. Flexbox 2 is the exact opposite â€“ with a stiffer belly and the softest tip/tail available, a more rigid mid section was designed so a rider can rock into a press, then once locked in, a softer end tip/tail section creates more ability to move side to side, or just exaggerate the angle of a press. Designed and ridden by the worldâ€™s best park rider, Dominik Hernler.
A rider that has absolutely taken womenâ€™s park riding by storm â€“ Julia Rick is frequently seen on top of the podium and on Ronix’sÂ Facebook inventing a new trick. For 2017 she received her first signature cable specific board. Based off of the same shape as Ronix’sÂ new Kinetik Project Flexbox 2 â€“ but in a much lighter/livelier construction. An innovation that allows a rider greater flex through the centre of the board to exaggerate a press and create a bigger sweet spot. The most advanced womenâ€™s park board in the world, to date!
The most adaptive riding style park series ever conceived from Ronix’sÂ private cable lake incubator.
