About 2011 Ronix Viva ATR Edition-Chad Sharpe
CHAD SHARPE IS THE VIVA COLLECTION
THE VIVA HAS A FREERIDE FEEL, SETTING AN EDGE WITH MORE SPEED OUT OF A TURN. A BOARD YOU GAIN CONFIDENCE WITH AS YOU GET ON THE GAS WITH THE INCREASED GLIDE OF A UNIQUE VARIABLE RAIL. CHAD’S QUICK HYBRID ROCKER COMBINES THE SPEED NEEDED TO MAKE ANY WAKE TRANSFER SEEM EFFORTLESS, WITH MORE VERTICAL KICK THAN A TRADITIONAL CONTINUOUS ROCKER.
VIVA BOARD Chad Sharpe’s faster rocker line designs have earned him the title of the largest recorded double up, with 56 frames of film captured from wake to landing. In the past couple of seasons, Chad has added even more kick to his board with a slightly more explosive hybrid rocker line. The Viva carries as much speed up the wake as his previous continuous rocker shapes – but with more of a vertical 3-stage snap leaving the wake. This high-end charger sets a slightly mellower initial edge, but once on edge carries rider’s tricks further out into the flats. Effortless high speed carves and a more forgiving rail design.
Center variable edge – a semi full rail and a subtle bevel create a controlled accelerated edge transfer with a forgiving bottom design
Tip/Tail variable edge – a sharper rail and bevel have more of a locked down feel once on edge
Thin profile reduces swing weight
Molded in outer fins - a quicker release off the wake
Directional R3 Technology – ride the board the way it was intended to be ridden with the carbon maintaining the original rocker line
Krypto Cable - makes the sidewalls the strongest part of the board – not the weakest, along with a torsionally stiffer board
Mod Pour - this demanding alternative core is new for this year made from our exclusive blend of carbon and atoms
Sintered Base – the most durable non stick compound we have ever tested on rails without loosing any glide speed on the water
Artwork – screened UV clear top/metal flake ink/gun metal top emblem/ethed badge underneath the topsheet
4 fiberglass 1.0” fins and 4 fiberglass .8” slider fins (slider fins come with sintered base option only)
