The 2014 Ratmobile is a brand new beast. It may look very similar to the 2013 edition, but stand on it and your feet will swear it’s a different deck. The new Rat has a brand new concave pattern that we’re calling FluxCave. The concave throughout the deck retains the same general rail height, however the profile changes constantly from tip to tail, giving you more of a tub feel in the front for rail control, and more radial in the back for excellent board feel and to help get your back foot higher over the rail.
The Thermo Glass construction is our revolutionary new process for creating stronger, lighter and more eco-friendly decks right here in the USA. We start with 4 plys of Great Lakes Maple and lay them up with a proprietary thermo-active formula along with several layers of fiberglass cloth. The sandwich is then placed in an ultra high-heat, high-pressure press where the panels undergo a transformation process that essentially melds all of the plies together into one new material that can only be dismantled using the same amount of heat. The result is a nearly indestructible board made using no harmful glues or resins.
