The Avenger has been a staple in Rayne’s lineup of boards for a longtime now and they just keep refining the design. This looks like it has the makings of a great top mount DH deck. Click through for more photos and information.
The 2012 Rayne Avenger is fully redesigned with an entirely new construction, updated shape and 3D concave!
The Avenger is one of Rayne’s classic shapes and has been the go to speedboard for a ton of great riders. We’re stoked to update this classic with a completely new construction and a phresh new graphic from the original artist Jee. The 2012 Avenger brings in the pressed-in 3D wheel-wells from the 2012 Vandal release which create added room for large wheels and ergonomic bends to help you find and hold your feet in place better than ever before.
In addition to the new 3D wheel-wells, this Avenger launches our entirely new Fat Bottom construction. Thick in the middle and thin moving out to the edges, the Fat Bottom bamboo tapered core is sandwiched between two layers of triaxial fibreglass. The all new layup offers the same Speed Stiffness of the old model with all the same foot platform, but a lighter overall board. This construction requires less milling and leaves less wood exposed to the environment making for a more durable construction as a whole. Finally, listening to our riders, we have removed the tow-hole from the end of the Avenger to shorten the overall length by a full inch while leaving the wheelbase the same overall.
If you’ve ridden a Rayne Avenger before, you’re going to love what we’ve done to update it for 2012. If you’ve never taken an Avenger for a run, there’s never been a better time to grab this speedboard and go fast!
The ALL NEW Fat Bottom construction works like this:
Fat Bottom Core: Thicker in the middle, the core now thins out to the edges creating an incredibly light, stiff, durable and responsive construction.
Integrated Wheel-wells: Subtle, pressed in curves in the front and rear meld with the Fat Bottom Core to open up the concave beyond our ability to simply mill wheel-wells in the wood. This naturally allows for a more durable construction and more diverse wheel options, while providing an incredibly ergonomic foot platform.
