I made some of these fixations last year for downhill. Maybe someone's interested in having one. Might be interesting to measure topspeeds in GS...

Airflow vs. Splitfire... the only thing i can say is that gary fluitt bought 10 Airflow OS trucks about in 2004. then we didn't here anything from him ever again. half a year later he released his own truck which basically looks like an airflow.

jadranko you are a SLALOMskater that's true.

but most of the skaters who really love the sport don't care about what they skate. they skate everything. slalom, pool, parks, freeride, downhill, banks, cones, parking lots, rigiblick, monuments. whatever. can you feel the flow?

the old design was adapted from our GS raceboard C81 which also has lips. it has nothing to do with grabbing rails. it was simply the easiest way to make the kink between flat and lips. now the foamcore is shaped differently. the lips are still there.
