2013 Hyperlite

Recently Hyperlite dropped a heap of 2013 product videos featuring new product. Here are some of the goods we are most excited about.

The 2013 Union

“The Union series is the culmination of years of development and the combination of our most advanced materials and construction methods. Inspired by our team, the Union series blends the functionality of a traditional wakeboard with the flex and feel of a thinner park board. Our Crossover SL Core combines both Nova and E-Core materials to produce a lightweight feel with maximum durability. The 360-degree ABS sidewall construction provides superior impact protection while the Sintered Enduro base offers our most durable running surface to date. The Union shape itself is designed around a continuous rocker line which provides great pop and maintains speed into the wake. The subtle base features allow this series to generate edge hold but also provides solid contact on rails. Allowing a rider the option to micro adjust their stance with the addition of the Strata Mounting system was the final element to this innovative design. ” -Hyperlite Read More >
