The Hyperlite Forefront Wakeboard series takes the next step in toe-side engineering, enabling riders to advance their skills much quicker than before. Its top deck includes the first ever toe side footbed riser. This feature quickens response time when initiating a toe side carve while requiring less pressure for a strong edge hold into the wake. The base of the Hyperlite Forefront Wakeboard features toe side channel extensions further enhancing edging and control. This new series also features four removable fins, two .8″ fins on your heel side and two 1.3″ fins on your toe side. This fin combination adds even stronger toe side edge control, but can be changed out with the included extra set of .8″ fins once you have mastered the toe side edge. The Hyperlite Forefront Wakeboard series also includes a variable edge design, transitioning from a softer edge in the mid section to a sharp and eventually turned down rail at the tip and tail. Finally, the subtle 3-stage rocker allows for smooth carving and large pop without causing unwanted drag. Never before has a board been equipped like the Hyperlite Forefront Wakeboard to truly grow with you as your riding skills progress.
Hyperlite State Wakeboard series is a shape that you don’t have to learn how to ride, it will perform comfortably for all ability levels and styles. The State is shaped differently from edge to edge helping a rider compensate for the awkwardness edging, jumping and landing on a toeside edge. Our subtle 3-stage rocker provides a great pop off the wake while remaining a smooth carver. The State is a great board for riders getting into the sport or those who are looking for advancement in their skills on the board.
Hyperlite Process Wakeboard is a free style shape that releases easily off the wake while not sacrificing any of the pop in a 3-stage rocker line. Hyperlite Process Wakeboard features a thinner overall profile for maximum weight reduction and better flex. Still the board of choice for many of our A-Team athletes the Hyperlite Process Wakeboard’s molded in fins and cupped rails truly deliver a solid edge hold even on short approaches. The concave footbed quickens your response time when transitioning from one edge to another and the reduced tip and tail weight make spinning a breeze. The Hyperlight Process Wakeboard has a Enduro Base, utilizing an exclusive material that is the lightest and most durable we offer.

Gone are the days of leaving the wake’s transfer in an unnatural position. The new Ronix Vault Wakeboard recognizes that your body is crossed up riding toeside, and takes this into consideration with the design of the rocker, fin shape/placement, and profile that allows the rider to point the board with maximum grip to the wake without requiring excessive attack angle. The design of the heelside was created for a rider facing the boat with a more natural position to point the board to the wake. Who said asymmetrical was only for entry level riders? Many contests have been won on the previous generation of the Ronix Vault Wakeboard - a series with no limits takes features from several boards in our line. This new ride is a platform to develop your riding style – allowing a rider to stand more efficient – redefining the demands needed for toe/heelside versatility. The Ronix Vault Wakeboard will have you cruising on the water with style.
For decades, our engineers have been developing different layups of glass, constructions of different woods and foam to create a board that does one thing, store energy. Ronix created the new Phoenix Project Wakeboard with a controlled flex that allows a rider to push all the way up the transfer and as the tail passes thru the wake it continues to build energy – not dampen the ride like some “flex” boards out there. A rider can feel the board transfer energy from the nose to the tail the longer you wait. A deck that you ride more like your favorite snowboard, timing the wake with a later pop, or just ride it like a traditional board with a mellower jump and super forgiving landings. With the Phoenix Project’s thinner profile and blended glass you can feel a balance point – whether you are pressing a board on rails and the board flexes until it locks, or just edging up the wake noticing the energy shift thru the board. A revolutionary new shape for riders that want more of a snow/skate feel leaving the wake, added control on rails with unique flex and wide 28″ stance option or for riders that have a conventional style that just want a smooth overall ride.
The shape that pioneered the evolution of surf style designs for soul turn connoisseurs looking to come into a turn with a relaxed arcing transition. Shallow molded fins, forgiving angled bevels, and a full mid rail set the pace of this mellower inspired turn. As a rider’s weight shifts back, the variable rail transitions to a sharper rail and bevel in the tail – so the board can hook up with a strong, predictable edge up the wake every time. Upgrade your travels with this fast signature 3-stage lift, balancing the spectrum of rockers. Danny is constantly spending time with our in-house shaper developing new rockers to find that balance of top water speed vs. a board that will make every transfer feel like a triple up. The first rider to sign with Ronix, the first freeride feel of its kind and the first to land a 1260 – The Ronix One Wakeboard.

Australia’s finest Hayley Smith worked with wakeboard coach Mike Ferraro, who arguably knows more about fluid dynamics than anybody out on the dock. They worked on a new shape for varying abilities, and styles to determine the universal characteristics a rider needs and blended them into one shape. The result was this new Smooth Flex constructed shape, which is being referred to as the best board he has created to date. Ronix Ladies Quarter Til Midnight Wakeboard has a 3-stage lift in the center, with a continuous outer rail. A rider can still get that explosive more vertical lift, but the faster outer rails push the board into the rider. You feel the speed of continuous and the float of 3-stage. If a rider comes in with a lot of angle, Ronix Ladies Quarter Til Midnight Wakeboard is reacting more to the outer continuous profile – feeling the added speed, coming in and flatting the board out as they hit the wake – the Ronix Ladies Quarter Til Midnight Wakeboard 3-stage kicks in. This is a series you don’t have to really stand on to create a progressive cut from the sharp/hard edge on the tip/tail of the board, outside of the stance. The rounder radius bevel in the center of the board, inside of the stance, creates forgiveness. A legendary new all purpose shape from smooth/low maintenance carves, to wide open high speed cuts behind the boat, versatility on the cable for air tricks and our super wide stance option for extra board control at the cable. The Ronix Ladies Quarter Till Midnight Wakeboard will rock the water.
