Rayne Team Rider Levi Green is well known for mad steez, redrilling everything and Purple. We figured we could combine these traits with Levi's ability to skate everything to prototype a new board in the Summer 2013 line-up we thought he would like - the Rayne Darkside.
How much do you know about Rayne proto's? Ha Ha. A little bit Cat Money, a little bit Moracle, partly Chillshakabrah, all Rayne and a lot of fun. The Darkside is a Directional, Top Mount Freeride board with Radial Drop, Rocker and a Kick-tail. The Darkside has a short wheelbase, narrower width and just enough flare to put on some 70mm Rayne Envy Wheels, but we think it's most fun on the 62mm Envy.
On top of a fresh new graphic For 2015, We have also added WHEELWELLS in a new construction to accommodate a looser setup, and bigger wheels!
This hybrid board crosses over a love of radial drops for DH leverage, control and lock-in with a urning for a kick tail to get up, over and around everything and anything. Like a fun button for around own, now you can ollie, manual, blunt and firecracker your way from place to place instead of just pushing. Come over to the Darkside!
