CrazyFly Says:

After 10 years of success and year by year refinements, on its 10th anniversary the Raptor received a complete makeover. Thanks to a brand new Multi Channel bottom shape and V tips, the Raptor has the perfect balance between speed and grip. The new Step Cap deck technology allows for thinner rails for ultimate edging and amazing upwind.

Brand new construction layup combines multi axial fiberglass and brand new X carbon. This construction is a little bit softer than the previous Raptor boards, making it more comfortable. The Raptor works best with brand new Hexa Bindings for unmatched comfort and board feel and the all new insert position makes the Raptor compatible with wake bindings.

The 2016 Raptor – experience the future now.

Our Testers Say:

“Best footstraps ever.” Davey Beard

“Skatey or locked, it’s easy to do both; freeride it, jump it or ride the swell.” Russ Werner

“Light, smooth and stable, it charges upwind and has fantastic pop.” Claude Waledisch

Tkb Says:

The 2016 CrazyFly Raptor features a double concave bottom with a wide center spine that reaches all the way to the board’s tips. It has a medium flex pattern and deck contours for added flex control. Testers praised this board for it’s ability to track upwind and handle chop well with confidence inspiring boosting chops. If you aren’t ready to spend the extra bucks to upgrade to the carbon LTD version of the Raptor, you’ll be missing out on the featherweight option but you are certainly going to get a ton of bang for your buck with this equally high performance option. The Raptor comes with CrazyFly’s Hexa bindings that are easy to adjust and allow for six directions of adjustability. The pads provide a cushy heelcup area along with a subtle texture and pronounced toe ridge for an excellent blend of performance and comfort.
