The RVL8 104cm Sticky Icky Icky skiboards took the skiboarding world by storm last season. The rave revues came in all season with a long list of happy customers spanning all age and experience ranges. The Sticky Icky Icky takes its cues from the RVL8 Spliff but is geared more toward riders who unfortunately are facing less powder in their skiboarding adventures. It's more narrow than the Spliff with a width profile of 13.0/10.6/13.0cm vs. the Spliff's 15.5/13.0/15.5cm profile. It also has a little less camber and rocker making it ideal for hard pack and variable conditions. The 2mm by 80cm static rocker is just enough to help you plow through any crud or small powder stashes but not enough to cause you to sacrifice hard pack and icy terrain performance. A new design feature never before seen on a pair of skiboards over 101cm is an extra set of inserts designed specifically to allow you to set back your Spruce risers for when you find yourself in the lucky situation of an overnight 3 foot powder dump and need some help keeping your tips up. Thanks goes to Jason Roussel and the Forum for this feature. (Unfortunately, do to liability concerns, the inserts are only designed to allow the releasable Spruce riser system to be set back, the extra inserts are not compatible with non-release bindings. See the 101cm RVL8 KTP or the 100cm BluntXL which have this feature). The new 2018 RVL8 Sticky Icky Icky graphic is by RVL8 designer Martin Azevedo.
