Product Info

This board smells like bananas. For real, Bill bottled the scent and thru it in the tip - just the tip. A must in any rider’s quiver with a new skate inspired drift on the water and railslide cable park enchantment, the Ronix Bill Wakeboard has the latest in progressive shapes for the next generation of riders with bigger wakes, faster speeds, and longer rope lengths in mind. Bill created a new fresh machine that is faster than any of his previous aquatic fabrications - the most contact on the water of any board in our line. The new Bill has more top water momentum so you don’t have to work as hard. The added glide is naturally putting Bill and the boys faster off the wake. An exaggerated, thinned out tip/tail of this new shape creates more of a delayed recoil snap. This creates a smoother approach, building energy through the tail of the board as you transfer over the wake, with more forgiving, predictable landings. This is the William on a budget with a new third generation softer Bill board.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Blended RockerBy blending the best of a 3-stage board together with the best of a continuously rockered board, Ronix has created a rocker line that's smooth and fast yet, still launches riders off of the wake.

Glide SpeedMore water surface contact and less coefficient drag have forever changed the way we look at arcs in a board. Now a rider has the least amount of resistance, travels up the wake with more forward momentum, and lands with less impact. The lift comes from an easier release and the added speed.

Hull

G&R TechnologyGrip and Release channels have all the traction you need for boat or cable riding without creating unneeded resistance with the water.

Rails/Edges

A more vertical sidewall pushes the tail out of the water for improved glide speed.

Core

Krypto CableDifferent fibers are brewed up and then woven together to make a stronger compound. The Krypto Cable surrounds the profile of the board and is fused together with the core. Combined with Ronix's monocoque laminated glass, this cable makes the sidewalls the strongest part of the board - not the weakest.

Base

Sintered BaseThe most durable non-stick base material Ronix has ever tested on rails without loosing any glide speed on the water

Fins

Utility FinsThese go-anywhere, do-anything fins are just as happy carving on glassy mornings as they are getting bashed on rails during afternoon cable park sessions.

Additional Features

Blended EnergyThis is a combination of Instant Energy, which quickly generates lift off the transition with tons of snap, and Stored Energy, which generates full lift from the power built up.

Suction CupsPlaced on the top deck, these increase the connection with the boots for added board response.

This is a pretty bangin' deck. Its longer narrower shape really enhances glide speed and provides a much more stable landing platform when your boosting to flat. Its got great butter ability with the slider fins with adequate edge hold for a loose flowy style of riding where you'll find yourself throwing reverts to set up for your next trick. The edge hold is nice and it feels more like a snowboard than most wake boards.

I tried to upgrade from an LF Witness to this board thinking maybe I'd moved on. I could not toe edge on this board for my HS jumps. There is something about my stance that made me faceplate every time I tried to edge hard. I have never face planted while edging out before. Obviously, this is a problem with me and how I ride and not the board, but be careful. I tried it for a full day and lost all of my confidence edging out. The few good jumps I did have revealed a lightweight board with good snap off the wake. But I don't think I want to bother getting used to it. Your mileage will vary.

              This is a great product. I really like the look of the board. I like how the board flexes when landing out in the flats, but also I would have liked to see a little more pop from the board upon hitting the up slope of the wake. Other than that, I love this board.

                        Really smooth carve into the wake and lots of pop. Ive gotten the most air I've ever had on this board and it lands with so much cushion that it doesnt even hurt to land in the flats. Great board for anyone looking to go from an intermediate to an advanced rider.

                            This board is smooth and fun to ride. Can end he in hard for a nice cut when u want to take one but it also is very forgiving and loose when you come off the edge. Has tons of pop too.

                                I've bought this board for cable and wake and didn't know how well it would perform in the park. It has awesome pop and it feels awesome.

                                  I've never liked older Ronix boards b/c I found them too loose behind the boat. This board has just enough channel for hard cuts but not too much to slow it down. Compared to my Marek, I was really surprised how fast this board is. I got this to be a cable board, and now I use it for everything.
