Rayne: Future Killer

We were lucky enough to receive this awesome deck from Rayne to review for our latest issue of Thrill Magazine. Since we set it up, rode it and made some modifications of our own, we havent been able to stop riding it. At the end of every session you walk away feeling as though the next session you can push it bigger and faster than you could imagine on any other deck. We are stoked to the hills on this deck, the shape is incredible!

Killswitch Vs. Future Killer:
 
1. Future Killer is smaller then the Killswitch
K-Rimes is a big guy, with long legs and monster feet.. he needed a big standing platform. The trend is towards narrower boards with shorter wheelbases and riders standing more on top of their trucks… Rayne deliver all of this in the tighter package of the refined Future Killer.
 
2. Future Killer is (a lot) lighter then the Killswitch
Well, if it's going to be smaller, it is for sure lighter, right? Well, the Future Killer is not only lighter because of size, the all new Future Killer also uses Fat Bottom to keep very stiff and rigid at speed, but reducing the weight by removing waste. Light and Stiff = Better for racing and freeriding, as they are more responsive, not to mention easier to carry back up the hill. 
 
3. Future Killer has more flare and less dome then the Killswitch.
The Future Killer gets enhanced, more flared wheel wells for better lock-in and room for larger wheels, a feature from the Baby Killer the #Rayneteam loved that also went into the Avenger this past year. Additionally, we felt the Pleaseure Dome (aka W-Concave) was great when tucking and getting sideways, but not as great for pushing. Graham split the Pleasure Dome into two parts to allows for a flat spot for pushing out front speedboarding and pushing around generally commuting and freeriding. More flare, less dome, pure harmony.

Patrick Switzer Signature Series: RAYNE FORTUNE!

Patrick Switzer is known for being one of the fastest men downhill and one hell of a nice guy! The 2011 World Cup Series Champion joined Rayne in 2012 looking for a family to ride with and some Rayne innovation under his feet. Riding the Rayne Vandal in 2012, Patrick worked with Rayne designer Graham Buksa to transform the basic Vandal into his new Signature Fortune for 2013.

The Fortune is a directional, top mounted speed board like no other. Combining a bit of slalom, pool and downhill, the Fortune gets radial concave, a small spoon tail and an upturned nose added to the directional Vandal shape so Patrick can ollie, manual and generally ride one board for whatever goofing he gets up to. Additionally, the Vandal 3D wheel wells have been turned into what we call 4D Cups. – if you’ve watched Patrick creating 3D concave with Vicious Grip, you’ll know where it all came from. These all-new supportive waves grab your feet and hold them in place so they’re not flopping around while you motor your boat down hill.

Finally the new Fortune takes on the Fat Bottom construction we released with the 2012 Avenger, keeping the board stiff and strong, but dropping excess weight and reducing exposed wood by making CNC’ed wheel wells obsolete.

The 4D-Cups on this board works like this: 
1: Integrated Wheelwells: subtle, pressed in curves in the front and rear open up the new radial concave to naturally allow for more diverse wheel options, while allowing the rider to find their feet without looking and prevent wheelbite without cutting into the deck.

2: Integrated Foot Locks: molded into the Wheelwells, the three dimensional waves create natural ridges to dig your foot into for tucking, pushing out drifts and slides and generaly keeping your eyes and mind on the road ahead and not the board beneath you.

Specs:
Length- 36″
Width- 10″
Wheel Base- 24.5″ / 25.25″ / 26″ or 26.75″

Features:
Sharp Edges – Final touch for locked in feet.
Fat Bottom Bamboo Core – Strong and light, thick and juicy, this baby’s got back.
Pre-tensioned Triaxial fibreglass – Adds long life, durability, strength and energy return.
Sublimated Artwork – Scratch-resistant ink is tattooed into the deck.
Speed-stiff – Don’t get bounced! Stiff boards will make you stable at high speeds.
Directional Shape – Gives extra edge feel for carving, cruising and speed.
4D-Cup Wheel Wells – Take your skating to the 4th dimension with double locks pressed into each wheel well.
Radial Concave – Just like taking corners, one smooth line from edge to edge keep your feet right where you want them.
Universal Variable Top Mounting – Lets you pick the wheelbase that works best for you.
Bee Orange Finish – Smells good, taste great, and seals and protects your board without harmful chemicals.
