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.
