The Rayne Avenger has been around for quite some time. That doesn’t mean the crew has kept the shape and features the same in 2013. New features added like more wheelbase options, Fat Bottom, 3D wheels wells and a new graphic by the original artists make this board a serious contender to add to your quiver of gear.

Martin Siegrist is one of the most influential downhill skaters of the last decade.
