Looking to try something new, want to go light weight. I have a Marius, Kink, Ricky G boards and Vapor, Zeus and Answer bindings. Any ideas?

Ronix seems to have a very light setup. Board and boots.

I know nothing on the subject although every board I have lifted feels a lot heavier than my liquid force omega and shane boots.

I looked at the Ronix DHV2 and One bindings at the Fort Worth PWT, and I don't think I've ever seen a lighter set up... but I have never actually ridden either, nor have I picked up ever single board ever made so I do not know if this is the lightest

2009 Ronix one boots and board combo was the lightest in the industry, when it first hit the market. Not sure if one of the flex companies has the title now.. but that setup is INSANELY light.

2005 LF 134 Team and Shane bindings. Super light! Everyone that picks up my set-up says something about how light it is.

Mine: CSV1 143 and 2009 One boots: 10.25
Wife's: CSV1 138 and 2009 Frank boots: 10.00

Not to be a total dork, but I have a digital scale handy.

My new slingshot was much lighter than anything else I've ever had!

The 2009 Ronix Relik is very light. And the gel surface is very comfortable.

I strongly suggest any CWB Platinum board if you want somethin light

I doubt you could get any lighter than the sub vi mated with a 2009 ronix relik. I personally would like to know if anyone has ridden the dhv2 because that is what I want as soon as a good deal arises.
Old    justinh            06-22-2009, 3:51 PM Reply   
There won't be any deals on the the V2s unless you buy one used. Ronix has been out of those for months and there are not many left in circulation (at shops). If you don't want to pay retail prices, good luck on Ebay.

To top it off, the board is absolutely amazing and worth the extra $$ if you have it to spend.

For now I have to stick to the V1.

Byerly Monarch is the lightest board I have ever held.

right, so if this thread has made anything clear it is you need to go to your local shop and judge for yourself.

Wow - I'm kind of amazed there are so many nominations based on a variable that can be so easily and objectively assessed. Is it really possible to have a debate which is the lightest???? Surely some shop has a decent scale.

You know why they call it the SUB 6? Because it is under 6 pounds...

FLY Watson with Reliks... 9.9 lbs. 5.8 on the board, 2.1 on the boots. (sz 10)
Old    David Christman (lfrider92)      Join Date: Sep 2008       06-23-2009, 9:36 PM Reply   
luke, 5.8+2.1=7.9 not 9.9
Old    Nick Tomsyck (sidekicknicholas)      Join Date: Mar 2007       06-23-2009, 9:51 PM Reply   
Maybe its 2.1 lbs per boot......

then it would 10 lbs total.

If you feel like the weight of your setup is not what you want, make those feet burn. Barefooter's always have the lightest setup.

again for the monarch. light
Old    Jeremy Byrom (wakerider111)      Join Date: Jul 2006       06-28-2009, 4:38 PM Reply   
Probably the lightest board (per surface area) you can get hands down (based on what i have read and heard)
is a custom made Sine wakeboard with the desired weight specified... Lighter than even 5 lbs if desired!!


To take things one step further- our Launch Series weigh in at approximately 6 lbs, depending on the size, but the ones I custom build for myself weigh around 5 lbs. I've even built some that are 4.25 lbs....

I would imagine that a board built to stand up to some pretty heavy abuse from a 230-250 pound guy would be weighing in around 7.5-8 lbs with our technology...

but i am sure this extreme low weight is only recommended for smaller riders and/or those who have good physical habits for landing with less stress, which is mentioned in the link of the thread the quote was obtained from

the stock boards are 6 lbs which has got to put SINE up there with the top handful without considering the custom black series even.
