EIKI HELGASON’S PARK AND STREET DESTROYER

Aimed squarely at urban street riders Eiki’s pro model is tour de force of park board design and technology. Utilising a fully balanced twin tip shape and featuring Lobster’s advanced Wallie tips, it has been specifically designed to deliver the ultimate in balance and control. The low profile blunt tip and tail reduce swing weight to an absolute minimum, ensuring no matter how technical you want to get, you’ll always be fully in charge of what’s going on under your feet. That control is then further enhanced with the Wallie tips, these additional upturns at the tips let you approach even the steepest transitions with confidence. Now to ensure the Eiki delivers the ultimate in stability, it utilises the park specific Jib 3BT with Sidekick technology. With a wider centre base section, this advanced triple Base technology delivers a solid ride with a larger, more stable platform for takes offs and presses. Match this with the high-end park specific construction, and you have one of the most technical and best performing Jib boards on the market. 

Rider Style

Jibbers and urban terrain riders looking for the ultimate in control, feel and response.

Shape Overview

The Eiki Pro utilises a jib specific flat blunt tip and tail shape to deliver the ultimate in rider control. By reducing volume at the nose and tail, the weight of the board is evenly spread through the length, meaning that when the board is spinning, it’s easier for the rider to control the inertia. This makes spinning tricks easier to manage as well as making the board far more manoeuvrable. The Eiki’s unique shape also features innovative Wallie tips. These add an additional tight upturn at the tip and tail of the board, allowing you to hit steep transitions without the worry of the nose folding or going over the tips.

Profile

Key to the Eiki’s stunning performance is the urban terrain specific Jib 3BT with SideKick base profile. This advanced 3D base profile with low camber delivers the perfect riding characteristics for this type of board. Combining a wide centre base with shortened low angle side base uplift provides a precise, manoeuvrable and hook-free ride. The wide centre base then creates a stable platform to press, load up ollies and put down landings. Perfect for urban, jib and park driven riders.

Side Kicks

SideKick dramatically increases the side base uplift just outside the widest part of the nose and tail. This makes turn initiation smoother, increases float in powder and improves the handling of the board in rough terrain.

Internals

Internally the Eiki Pro utilises state of the art construction to deliver its unique ride. Heading this up is the advanced Light Core. This featherweight wood core combines poplar with lightweight paulownia to achieve the optimum balance of weight, strength and performance. To add additional pop through the length, Lobster add their C.S.T reinforcing. This places a hollow carbon rod into a milled-out channel on the base of the core, stepping up pop as well as powering up the low camber for more snap and drive. Now to give the Eiki its playful and urban-inspired ride, the structural layers are formed from softer flexing bi-ax glass. These are reinforced with carbon stringers running across the width of the board under the bindings at both the front and back foot, creating a more powerful zone under the feet for added pop and improved landings.

Base

To ensure that the Eiki Pro performs at the highest level, Lobster fit it with their high-performance Ultra Glide S base. This super tough maximum molecular weight base material hauls ass as well as being super durable.
