The Downhill 980 Drop is made up of a double vertically laminated core made of poplar and birch making the board one of the lightest non-foamcore downhillboards on the market. The board is very stiff with minimal flexibility for absolute stability at high speeds and a very direct steering allowing for immediate response. Its drop mount property ensures added stability and provides more control when footbraking.
The board comes with the Fibretec classic concave which features a 1cm rise from the center of the board to the rails, making for an uncomplicated foot platform which allows your feet to determine their placement.
The underside of the board is imprinted with scratch resistant, heat transferred print allowing for a prolonged life of the original design.
