Roam Hyperlite WakeboardsRoam Hyperlite Wakeboards

Information:
The Roam is a jib-friendly creation that carries the snowboard season through to summer. Designed for more of a knees-bent, edge-to-edge style of riding, this series allows a rider to rely on the profile of the board to set a turn and hold an edge. Who needs fins anyway?

Features:
– E Core
– Torsion Flex
– ABS Side Wall
– Layered Glass

E Core:
Innovation thru energy. A one hundred percent wood core brings the torsional flex of your favorite snowboard and a new dimension off the peak of a liquid kicker and on rails.

ABS Sidewall:
You have one of those rides where nothing is going your way. Just feel like smashing your board? Our torsionally stiffest wakeboards were built for the infamous hockey temper.

Layered Glass:
A non-woven glass available in 4 sizes depending on the size of the board. Over time, woven glass fibers will separate. Every Hyperlite deck will have the same snap on a double after 5 seasons as it will on the first one.

    This is an awesome board, I really like the transition from snowboarding. But I have to say that I would recommend it to anyone, with its unique, incredible ride.

    It only takes a run or so to really get a fit for this board as it does have a little more slip when not tracking. The only downside to this design really is just slightly harder landings but it was expected with the design.

    Definetely a great addition to the line of Hyperlite wakeboards, the Roam is the best freeride board ever. The board is certainly more stable with some experience using a board without fins and can still slip a little when setting flat to much but I can turn on a dime and love the feel of this freeride board. Even off a smaller wake I get huge pop and spin like nobodies business. A recommended board for anyone that has ever ridden a freeride board or even someone who just wants a board with another style and feel all to its own.
