A thousand garden gnomes can’t be wrong. Willkommen para el futuro van de kabel planken. Translation: Welcome to the future of cable boards (we think). Say hello to your little friend, the Ronix El Von Videl Schnook Cable Wakeboard. A cable rider has to leverage into an ollie or press onto a rail but, just as important (which gets overlooked) is that it has to snap back too. So Ronix sourced this fancy new Paulownia environmentally conscious, short harvest time, energetic tree. What really makes this board is the diamond glass. Having a thin tip/tail shape and a really light glass in the tip and tail exaggerates everything you need on a cable including more bend. A fast, flatter rocker means more contact with rails for added control, and along with the steeper sidewalls, allows the board to ride higher with more glide speed. Plus longer boards are more fun to press out. Through all of the cable testing Ronix stumbled upon 2 big advancements. 1. They added foam cut outs in the middle of the board – this helps reduce those big impacts on landings when you fall from the sky on a kicker. 2. They swapped the layout of the Paulownia wood on the ends of the board to run horizontally. Now the wood is bending with the rider on a nose press – and not restricting the motion. If you're riding in the cable park, you need a board that is made for it. Lucky for you, we're bringing you the all new, super fun Ronix El Von Videl Schnook Cable Wakeboard.
Blended Rocker A combination of the speed and consistency off the wake of early rocker, with the explosive vertical snap of late rocker
Thin Profile Reduces swing weight
Concave Bottom Tips Effortless ollies and more controlled presses
Diamond Glass This secret concoction absorbs more energy before rebounding it. A lightweight woven construction brings less swing weight and increased feel on the water to the board.
Monocoque Construction A wrapped glass from the top to the bottom means the flash line is no longer the weak point of the board, and is now the strongest.
Krypto Cable Different fibers woven together surround the profile of the board and are fused together with the Mod Pour Core. Combined with monocoque laminated glass, the sidewalls are the strongest part of the board.
ABS-Less Doesn't trap as much resin, so you have a lighter board that is also strong
Magic Carpet Ronix's secret formula of fiberglass materials woven together to allow just enough resin to bleed through and adhere to the core
Sintered The most durable non-stick base material Ronix has ever tested on rails doesn't loose any glide speed on the water. The exclusive base was formulated from a powder by heating the material in a sintering furnace below its melting point until the particles bond to one another. This is a higher purity compound that preserves its bond over time. No obstacle is safe at cable parks with this jib friendly base material.
Finless Avoid getting hung up on rails.
G & R Technology Grip and release channels have all the traction you need for boat or cable riding without creating unneeded resistance with the water.
G & R Part 2 Side to side stability and allow a rider to control a flick easier at a cable park
M6 Metric Inserts A higher thread count means more hold at a shallower depth on the board. Boards can be thinner profiles with a shorter insert, without sacrificing boot lock down.
Stored Energy The delay in the energy means the rider is given more time to generate the full lift from the power building from the tip all the way to the tail of the board. If riders don't have that snow/skate timing off the wake, no problem. They will just have a mellower lift off the wake. This is a construction that won't kick your arse

Comments about Ronix El Von Videl Schnook Cable Wakeboard 2014:
Like this board a lot, wears down relatively quickly but super fun and lively on the water. Not too flexy but softer than the 2013 model so enough to press out. Very fun ride
