Rayne’s Latest top mount the NEW Vandal | Highlight video

From Rayne:

New to Rayne for 2012, the Vandal was inspired by some of our favorite NorCal riders and developed by our global team. Most top mounts are heavy weights with few locks and flat-cave’s. The Vandal is intended to be smart, simple, stiff and light weight. We combine minimalist design thinking with Rayne’s signature construction to offer unique 3D bends that build useful features into the board. The Vandal is here to incite more confidence and gnar shredding in all you top mount lovers out there.

The Three Dimensional Concave on this board works like this:

  1. Integrated Wheelwells: subtle, pressed in curves in the front and rear open up the concave to naturally allow for more diverse wheel options, while allowing the rider to find their front foot without looking.
  2. Integrated Gas Pedals: extending from the Wheelwells in the rear, the pressed in curve creates a natural ridge to dig your foot into pushing out toeside drifts and slides and a valley to sink your foot into for heelside lock-in.
