|Just looked at the 09 Ronix catalogue and there is no flexboard. |
Anyone know the reason why?
I love my Covenant.....
|Not sure why, but they will not offer a flex board at all for 09.|
|It is such a niche market they probably were not making any money on it.|
|I think bailey is probably correct. I'm sure they run the numbers on it and it wasn't feasible to continue that type board. Just my .02.|
|when the roam has such a strong hold on the straight flex style boards its hard to compete when the market is in shambles|
|what about the "arcade by bill" board. it was described as being pretty thin and "snowboard construction" or something like that |
but as for the ride it was describing it as a speed demon for going huge into the flats at high boat speeds and long line... sounds like a "wana be like lyman and/or randall" board ;)
Also the Coy was described to be the thinnest on the list...
maybe these boards will only be as close to flex as the lyman?
|i love mine from time to time. such a cool feeling with it flexing under your feet. |
|I doubt hyperlite makes much money on the roam but they have a lot more production than ronix so they probably don't have too much of a problem pressing them. I have been riding a roam a lot lately and I really like it but I don't see it replacing a normal board for most people. (except cliff)|
|I'm gonna follow Bryan's idea and post a photo as a mark of respect for the Covenant R.I.P. :p |
|Covenant – an agreement, usually formal, between two or more persons to do something specified. |
R.I.P soul turns are dead
|yea the arcade is ridden by dean smith and we all know he goes huge like lyman and randall|
|I remember the 08 catelogue was out earlier than the expo, is there a link to it?? |
|The 09 catalogue is here: |
