The “Crossbow” design is the result of many suggestions from customers who had experience with the RVL8 “Sticky Icky” board and wanted a similar board that was a bit longer with a slightly more relaxed turning radius. The board is designed with a medium flex stiffness, so it’s easy to control and very lively. Reviews on this board have consistently showed that it is a very easy turning board with a strong edge once it’s set up in a turn. It has the feel of a smaller, lighter skiboard but has enough running length to eliminate thigh burn and the need for fore and aft rider weight balancing. Available in two striking graphics for the 2021.22 season.

Schalk Cronjé –
The first time I stepped on these it was just “wow”. With the exception of Ospreys and the legacy 120s, they were longer than any other skiboard I’ve ridden. They are long enough and stable enough in the tail as to be very forgiving, yet they require less effort to drive than any of the 120+ skiboards from the Spruce stable. I’ve ridden them in all kinds of conditions in the Pyrenees Alps, including powder dumps, hard & icy groomers, moguls, trees, crust, cruft and they simply deal with everything. The rockered tips cut through everything and the camber allows for a good edge on ice. For me this is the skiboards that rules them all in-resort, but they are not limited to that – I’ve even gone skitouring on them!
