The UFO is pressed in the Mini Marble’s mold ; it gives this deck a compact feet platform, microdrops and flairs. What’s new with this shape is the large and comfy feet platform combined with a smaller width in the middle. All those characteristics will give you an amazing feeling of lock on the edges of the deck when you tuck for downhill or when you adopt a freeride stance.
The middle taper, the absence of nose and the small kicktail reduces the weight of the deck and makes it aerodynamic. The kicktail is still present but not as much as on the Mini Marble SK. You can still use it to pick up your deck easily and that’s what we liked about it.
DH : 10 / 10
Freeride : 10 / 10
Tricks : 6 / 10
Weight : 3.57 lbs
The recommended weight for riding this board is equal or below 300 lbs, but for heavy dh we recommend adding a ply after 170 lbs.
Featuring 5 plies of canadian maple, one biaxial carbon fiber layer, two triaxial fiberglass layers to reduce weight, camouflage weave kevlar/carbon fiber for a durable strength, a unidirectional carbon stringer to eliminate longitudinal flex, and an ''X'' weave of carbon to make the board stay solid torsionally. And finally, a layer of Zenply to maximise the durability of the deck's bottom.
The graphic is simple and clean with the camouflage carbon/kevlar showing under it and it’s protected by the glossy Zenply© ; it will last for the whole life of the deck. Kevlar is adding some color and strength to the carbon fiber and it’s also giving a unique and appealing look to the deck. The specs are written with a contrasted color to make them readable and to create a nice noticeable detail in the graphic.
