Cabrinha Says:

The Tronic is a performance freeride model with a shape and build that allows a rider the ability to crossover and experiment in any and all types of riding including hucking huge lofty airs. The Tronic twin tip delivers top performance and slash and run type of riding in small waves or choppy water. The Tronic curved tip outline and generous rocker is a chop killer. It cuts through rough water with ease and adds a whole new dimension of g-force inducing turns when banking off of waves or redirecting in the flats.

Our Testers Say:

“Smooth ride at the expense of load and pop tricks, but great for the cruiser/freeride,” Davey Beard.

“This is the board for carving turns and playing in the surf or choppy conditions,” Marko Bartscherer.

“Great carving board that tracked really well with very comfortable pads and a smooth ride,” Pat O’Connor.

Meet the 2015 TKB Test Team

TKB Says:

The Tronic features rounded tips and a moderate rocker that eats up La Ventana’s choppiest conditions. The Tronic features three stance width adjustments and three settings for setting duck. Testers found the Tronic to be extremely user-friendly in the choppy conditions with good tracking, solid upwind performance and rounded tips and a template that slices through the worst chop. Testers recommended the Tronic as a great twin tip for surf because of its fun and easy carving, but compared to the Ace, the Tronic’s smaller tips didn’t seem to offer the same high performance load and pop, yet still scored high for fun big air boosting. The H1 pads and straps seemed to have a narrower arch than the H2 with a little firmer footbed and single adjustment strap; testers also gave these pads and straps solid marks for comfort and ease of use.
