The 2010 Cabrinha Caliber has a new outline and a unique bottom shape that sets it apart with its wakestyle-inspired tip design and 3D bottom shaping. The flatter rocker line and flatter mid-section of the board give the Caliber good speed and upwind drive. The quad concave tips, squared off and high powered tips make the Caliber well suited to aggressive freeriders that want both high powered freestyle and controlled wakestyle capability in their board. The tip flex and shaping work well together to smooth out the Caliber through chop. The Caliber has good grip and releases easily for unhooked freestyle. This combinations of aggressive pop with smooth control and some chop-soaking ability, gives the Caliber the edge in less-than-ideal conditions. The Caliber gets top marks for massive pop and smooth and controlled riding. This board has all the features that intermediate to advanced freestyle riders are looking for in a do-it-all freestyle shape.
• Eco-friendly Paulowina wood core
• ABS squared sidewalls taper to tips
• New 3D X Deck shaping
Footbed and Strap System: 2010 Sync Backless Bindings
The second generation Sync Backless bindings are available in two sizes and this year’s version has some material upgrades that have made the system lighter, stronger and more user friendly. The Sync is one of only a handful of lace top bindings on the market and those who prefer a more boot-like top feel will appreciate this system. The feel is much different than most of the Velcro style strap systems out there as there is an increased length of contact on the top of the foot. Top marks to Cabrinha for the Sync’s new styling and delivering a viable alternative outside of the traditional strap system.
