By popular request here is the DK DropKick. It is based off one of our oldest designs, the Carbon DropKick. We went all out creating what our fan’s wanted; a freerider’s dream board with drop-through mounting and double kicks. The mold we designed for this board has a very comfortable and effective concave featuring rocker, foot flairs, and mellow “W” running down the center. All this combined locks you in for downhill and sliding at speed while still comfortable for pushing. The kick-tails are shaped wide and long enough to actually use them in a functional and confident way to drop off curbs and lift up the wheels when riding.
Double the pleasure with two kicks to leverage whatever tricks you can imagine! With the lowered platform created by the drop-through mounting and rocker combo, this board is perfect for LDP as well. It makes it our most versatile design that’s able to do it all. We highly recommend it for the beginner / intermediate freerider or anyone seeking an agile yet stable freeride deck with really useful kicks.
Constructed solid and stiff with the highest quality 8 ply maple and laminated with a special waterproof resin instead of traditional wood glue. This makes for a much stronger bond between plies and prevents warping and cracking over time. Thus increases the life of the board making it last many more years than traditional maple construction. The graphic design incorporates a topographical map featuring the surrounding hills of the Portland Zoo Bomb run.
