Progressive Trigger

Jul 19, 2011

Author: SBC Test Team

Progressive Trigger
STYLE:   Freestyle    
SIZE:    130 x 42 cm      
FINS:     4 cm Fiberglass    

The Progressive Trigger is a blunt and wide shaped board with lower rocker line for good top-end speed and early planing power. The wide tips that give this board access to more speed, power and big boosting capability. Less skatey than the Bonefish, the Trigger is a more aggressive, responsive and controlled ride. Freeriders that want to cruise at higher speeds and boost into the stratosphere should consider the Trigger. Lightweight construction with rounded ABS sidewalls and some side grab grips are a nice touch on an overall fine finish. The wood core dampens out the chop nicely and the Trigger has plenty of flex in it to eat up chop and let you rip into some laid-out carving. Nicely rounded ABS rails also provide good water release for boosting or unhooking. The Progressive Trigger, and the entire lineup of boards, are great buys for any rider that wants a shiny new board to drive some inspiration to their riding.

Footbed and Strap System
The Progressive pads and straps are a simple and traditional shape, that feature a lightweight build and large Velcro adjustable straps. The EVA foam beds have some nice heel and toe texture for locking in some grip. They are thinner and streamlined but provide good cushioning and arch support. The 90 degree attachment system ensures easy installation.
