Crazyfly Says:

Raptor Pro is a living legend in our range. This board has been fine tuned for eight years and it has always stuck to its core features: full carbon and full wood core construction with single concave bottom. Due to these factors, the Raptor Pro has always been extremely well balanced and is a true all-around performer. This traditional board has always kept its true face and it still rocks.
The Raptor Pro is suitable for high performance freeride and can be really pushed hard for powered freestyle tricks. The Raptor Pro is aimed at intermediate, advanced and pro riders who are looking for a high performance board for committed carving and an insane amount of pop for their tricks.
Razor fins with ultra thin profile will further enhance the speed and early planing, and the Raptor Pro also boasts an enviable carbon fiber look, and special 3D metallic colors.

Our Testers Say:

“I’m taking this board out again and again because it rocks! Awesome pop and awesome edging,” Frank Russo.

“Comfortable straps, super skaty, but in rough chop it sprays you in the face,” Marko Bartscherer.

“Light and playful, stiffness gives it pop that is perfect for an experienced rider looking to play hard and go big,” Cherie Costello.

TKB Says:

The 2014 CrazyFly Raptor Pro features wood core with full carbon fiber layup, single concave bottom, three holes for adjusting stance width and one option for duck. Testers liked the board for its fast and easy edging ability and lively rail to rail carving. Testers found the Raptor Pro’s performance outline and rocker to require more aggressive input to manage La Ventana’s rough chop, but all praised its load and pop and recommended it highly as a fun freestyle board for intermediate and advanced riders.

The Raptor Pro was shipped with Crazyfly’s Dura footpads and Quick Fix II footstraps which are simple and easy to install with a single Velcro adjustment for sizing the straps. Testers liked the plushness of the pads and the pronounced toe ridge for extra grip for aggressive riding and overall found the pad/straps setup very comfortable.
