Shinn Kiteboarding Sneaker 5 Binding System:

Shinn Kiteboarding Footstrap Binding System

The Shinn Sneaker 5 new buckle system allows for a huge adjustment range yet still makes micro adjustments a breeze, the memory foam heel insert ensures the pad is perfect for every foot no matter the shape and size, combined with a new Zoned traction surface means grip to stomp your landings yet easy entry and exit when you need it.

 

It may seem intuitive but the positioning of the all new toe ridge proved tricky to define but nail it Shinn have, providing a mountain of grip when you want to be locked into the straps yet no barrier to your exit when things get hot and you need to leave in a hurry. Likewise the new heel cupping secures your feet giving re-assuring leverage when you need it yet doesn’t impair movement during your wilder rides.

 

Shinn Kiteboarding's deep section EVA cushioning ensures luxurious comfort even during the harshest landings, whilst a carefully placed section of memory foam adjusts the surface to the shape of your feet after only a couple of hours riding. Multi-position fixation points allow you to fine tune your stance to perfection. The Shinn Sneaker-5 footstrap has been shaped to provide maximum grip on your foot with minimal pressure points and complete ease of adjustability.

 

Shinn Bite Fins:

Grippy and ideal for carving without being too difficult to break traction for stance changes. Made from moulded Nylon in a yellow colour way, they are light and tough, Each fin is supplied with bolts and Shinn fin washer.

Description

Once in a while a revolution comes along. The Shinn Speedball thinks outside the box to create freeriding more dynamic than it’s ever been before.

 

The Speedball doesn’t fit into any other category of twin tip. It maybe better to ask what it’s not, it’s not limited to one riding style, it’s not limited to a certain wind range and it won’t disappoint you no matter what day you ride it.

 

Combining un-precedented width to length ratios this rocketship brings the small board feeling to larger riders and leads the twintip charge in the waves. It’s all about glide and float - the extra width keeps the Speedball floating over white water, let’s you harness the power of the wave and tolerates small lags in kite-power without stalling and sinking up to your waist.

 

The Shinn Speedball is not just a game changer, it’s a whole new way of looking at the water. Complete with new tail composites for more pop and comfort, a new outline for more grip and more drive.

 

Shinn Speedball Wingers:

Introducing wingers into the outline has allowed Shinn to maintain the length of the Speedball and yet decrease the outline curve between the feet giving a more balanced edge grip and faster upwind drive, yet at the same time maintaining the carving and glide this board has become famous for.
The Speedball excels as a twin tips in the waves and works un-paralleled as a one board solution for larger riders - anywhere, any time and anyhow, don’t judge it till you’ve tried it.

 

Often used in surfboard design but relatively new in twin tips the winger serves to reduce the tail width quickly yet without introducing too much curve into the outline.


In the case of the Speedball, Shinn wanted to improve the edge grip and upwind ability through straightening the outline between the feet yet maintain the super short length and relatively narrow tip and tail that made this board feel both so small for its size and be so much fun to ride in waves. The wingers let us achieve all of this, especially in the case of the new W19, shaping a board of this width and length in a traditional manner simply produces too much curve in the outline leading to a narrow usable stance on the board.

 

The tips are incredibly flexible, with a constant thickness taper to the core (a brand new style of deck mould for Shinn) and the outline is half way between freeride and freestyle.

 

Shinn Kiteboarding Speedball Kitesurf Kiteboarding Board

Shinn Kiteboarding Speedball Kitesurf Kiteboarding BoardThink the dimensions of the Speedball don't look that radical?

 

By utlizing a tip and tail shape derived from surf orientated boards and not wake boards, Shinn have reduced the working length of the board over it's actual length by more than 15% and thats's why it has so much rangeand yet feels so small under foot.

 

A = Reduced Length + effortless feeling under your feet.

Shinn Kiteboarding Speedball Kitesurf Kiteboarding BoardIf the working board length is so much shorter then why not make the board itself so much shorter?

 

The answer is ROCKER. On such a short board it's challenge to make enough lift in the tips to avoid spray and nose diving and yet not make it a power hungry slugger.

 

Shinn's unique end game gives the board nearly 20% more rocker at release than there would be at the 'functional' length.

B = Rocker = avoid spray + anti nose diving + no slugger madness.

Shinn Kiteboarding Speedball Kitesurf Kiteboarding BoardDoes the Shinn Speedball still float?

 

 

When Shinn talk about "forgiving", one of the key factors is float.

 

It would be easy to call this volume but in reality a twintiip has no significant volume and thus any significant floatation. But what is does have in surface area and thus the resistance to stay on the water surface during short periods without power in the kite.

 

The wider the board, the better the resistance, making the Shinn Speedball unmatched for "floating" through more moves and making you look better on the water.

 

C = Surface Area = Floatability

Shinn Kiteboarding Speedball Kitesurf Kiteboarding Board Shinn Kiteboarding Speedball Kitesurf Kiteboarding BoardAnything else I need to know?

 

The key to the incredible carving ability of the Shinn Speedball not only lies in the outline and rocker but also in the fin positioning.

 

Putting the fins at the edges of the boards gives more grip, putting them closer to your feet give better carving. By making the board radically shorter means Shinn can put the fins both nearer to your feet AND closer to the edge of the board.

 

If it sounds like the best of both worlds, that's because it is!

 

D = More Grip + More Carving

 

There are also a number of things that make the Shinn Speedball ride so well:

 

Spray:

No spray, ever, no matter how choppy, no matter what your stance is, what your carving position, where you place your pads; it’s gone, completely. The Speedball has cured it using only limited rocker curve, so it’s still efficient with a wide windrange.

 

Chop:

The flex, grip and ease of the Speedball makes it a total joy in chop. Whether you are riding in 6 metre kite conditions, the Speedball makes it easy, relaxed and fun.

 

Confidence:

It’s a board that you can push to the ragged edge of control, without ever feeling nervous or hesitant. The first thing to come unstuck is never your stance or balance!

 

Even-Foot Pressure:

Every twin suffers from back foot loading, but some twins have to be ridden with excessive back foot pressure, either to stop the nose from burying when things get out of shape, or to stop you getting spray in your face. The Speedball is a joy, it feels so solid underfoot that you can shift you weight around a great deal – even 50-50 when you are tired. Ride it hour after hour and your sessions will be so much fun!

 

Carving:

Toeside carving on a twin is always going to be tenuous. Heelside carving is better than many directional boards. Not only does it grip through the turn, without ever feeling like it’s going to pop out (the more you push the deeper into the water it sinks), but it stores so much speed – when you come out of the most aggressive of carves you are still really travelling. It’s incredible round corners.

 

Straight-Line Stability:

The rocker is naturally very stable with any outline, but the Speedball outline proved to be even more stable and efficient. It encourages you to push faster and harder until you can push no more. So effortless to ride; so trusting that in a straight line it never comes unstuck, which makes it perfect for experts and intermediates alike.

 

Pop:

The ability of the board to heel-side carve without losing speed makes it excellent for wake style pop, as well as having plenty of traditional pop. Hardcore freestyle is easily within it’s grasp but for everyone who does not spend half their session unhooked the Speedball is a far superior board for multidiscipline freestyle.

 

Choosing your board size:
Whilst many riders still look at the length of the board when choosing their size it's much more relevant to look at the width. The length of the board can be affected by the shaping of the tip and tail - which in reality plays no part in the performance of the board.

 

To clarify the situation further the difference in surface are between a 130x40 and a 130x42 is approximately 260cm2 whilst increasing the length of a 130x40 to 135x40 would give an increase in surface area of less than 200cm2 - nearly 25% less!

 

Who is the board designed for:
For anyone with aggressive tendencies it’s so much fun. For the nervous it’s ideal, in truth this board is for everyone. Although the Speedball can be aggressive, it is NEVER difficult or uncomfortable.

Shinn Kiteboarding Speedball Technical Features:

 

 

Shinn Kiteboarding Footstrap Binding System

Footbed and Straps:
The connection between rider and board can make or break the quality of your ride. Of course they should look slick but only after the function is perfect.

 

The new buckle system allows for a huge adjustment range yet still makes micro adjustments a breeze, our memory foam heel insert ensures the pad is perfect for every foot no matter the shape and size, combined with a new Zoned traction surface means grip to stomp your landings yet easy entry and exit when you need it.

 

Shinn Kiteboarding's deep section EVA cushioning ensures luxurious comfort even during the harshest landings, whilst a carefully placed section of memory foam adjusts the surface to the shape of your feet after only a couple of hours riding. Multi-position fixation points allow you to fine tune your stance to perfection. The Shinn Sneaker-X footstrap has been shaped to provide maximum grip on your foot with minimal pressure points and complete ease of adjustability.


Fins
:
All Shinn twin tips are supplied with high visibility nylon fins and deck protection plates. Shaped exclusively for Shinn from nylon, this 53mm shape provides exceptional grip for it's size whilst still offering great manoeuvrability.

 

Core Construction:
What's inside your board will make a huge difference to how it performs. There is a lot of talk about flex but the mount of flex is just the tip of the iceberg, what"s more important is where the board flex"s and how fast it responds after that flex.

 

Each Shinn twin tip has a carefully engineered core that optimises these characteristics and enhances them for the target rider. Core materials, glass layup and mould shaping are all factors that help us in this area but the heart of every Shinn twin tip is comprised 'mostly' of an Alabasia wood core.

 

No other core material offers the same blend of consistent flex over extended periods of time, feather light weight and near indestructible durability (not to mention environmental friendliness).

 

Squoval Mould Shaping:
The Squoval mould accurately controls the flex through the tail and the balanced outline provides grip whilst allowing for high speed turns but all new is the adaption of the exaggerated constant curve rocker first seen on the Speedball and a revised global flex pattern that cushions your ride without sacrificing performance.

The Shinn Speedball uses a variation on a constant curve rocker through out it's length. Some years ago this rocker would have been considered to be slow to plane and poor upwind but advances in flex control, concave hull shapes and of course kites now mean it can be used to provide un-paralleled control, limitless grip and completely spray free riding in all conditions.

 

The 3D shaping of the deck moulds on all Shinn boards is a blend of functionality and form. The entire tail section of the board is allowed to flex in a pre-determined manner ensuring constant contact with the water and shock absorption for the rider even in the choppiest conditions whilst the central ridges reduce the torsional flex providing a surprising amount of POP for a free-ride board.

 

Constant Curve Rocker and Outline:
Some years ago this rocker would have been considered to be slow to plane and poor upwind but advances in flex control, concave hull shapes and of course kites now mean it can be used to provide un-paralleled control, limitless grip and completely spray free riding in all conditions.

 

The outline of your board works in conjunction with the rocker to define the way it will perform.

 

In freestyle - this outline style features more curve radius between the feet leading into straighter, larger diameter curves in the tip and tail. On the water this translates into strong edge grip, aggressive POP and fast turning when applying pressure equally through both feet.
