Rayne Baby Killer A.K.A. The "Small Killswitch" Drop Through Longboard
For years, people with smaller feet, stance, and/or preference for smaller boards have been successfully using the full-size Killswitch to shred like the Champ. Now, we've taken the core design of the World Championship winning K-Rimes signature model Killswitch, shrunk it down and tightended it up to help the next wave of champions manuever down hill better than ever before. Keeping the ergonomics of the full-size model, we've tweaked this Baby Killer and made it fully symmetrical on both the top and drop model options. Now the shape and concave offer you the ability to ride with complete comfort, control and lock-in no matter what stance you prefer or direction you're going. All the features you want, only the board you need, say goodbye to your time and urethane, this boards going to destroy hills.
The locks on this board are several:
1: 3/8" Radial Drop Platform - subtle drops in the front and rear so as to cradle the life that it is stealing you from regular monotonous board design
2: K-Rimes' own Pleasure Dome - concave with a subtle feel that is enough to lock you in, but not enough to become bothersome on long bombs or pushes. The W concave also allows for butter toe-side pre-drifts and heel-side stand up checks by keeping your rear foot in place.
1+2 = 3: Where the small drop morphs into the flat-topped Pleasure Dome concave, you place your foot in that "special spot" where the two lovers meet. You will find your foot and toes are dropped into an aggressive forward facing stance that is similar to that of a runner on a starting block. This allows for pushing bad'assery and major comfort when you're out on the track
4: Three-dimensional wood bending: used in this deck to give a full, cupped feeling for the front and rear toes. This allows the body to lean far away from the board while still maintaining full contact of the front foot. The rear foot will find a pocket specially designed for those who tuck, and tuck fast.
5: The "Drop-Lock". When you stand on this deck your front foot will naturally position itself into the "Drop-Lock" where the toes sit beside the drop rather than behind it. This makes for a complete and total lock of the front foot for toe-side drifts.
