CrazyFly Says:

The CrazyFly Raptor Limited is a high performance freeride freestyle board for intermediate to expert riders.
This board does not need much introduction. Raptor Limited is one of the best boards we have ever made.
Extremely light full carbon masterpiece with Gullwing Double Concave Channels. Buttery soft in chop, yet dynamic for high end freeride and freestyle. The full carbon construction provides loads of pop while the shape gives the board that smooth feel we all enjoy.

For 2017, we introduced a brand new Nano Glide Skin on the bottom of the board. The micro channels on this foil help the board track and go upwind better. The foil has better gliding properties and generates speed quicker, plus it is more resistant to scratches. The top of the board has a brand new matt overprint for that eye catching premium look. The Raptor Limited works best with Hexa LTD Bindings for unmatched comfort and board feel. The Raptor Limited is also compatible with wake bindings.

Tkb Says:

The 2017 CrazyFly Raptor LTD is back in full carbon construction with what they call a “gullwing” double concave bottom that features a spine down the middle and subtle batwing tips. The Raptor LTD features three stance width options with a series of duck stance options and 5.0 fins. The most noticeable feature about the Raptor LTD is its lightweight feel, a quality you will notice from the second you pick the board up on the beach to the moment you slice through your first piece of chop and, most importantly, when you boost a big air and throw in a rotation. What you are feeling is that the board has reduced inertia with every move and that alone puts carbon boards like these in their own performance category. Compared to the regular Raptor, the LTD has a similar rocker and has that same balance between efficiency and control, while its rocker feels a little stiffer which gives it some extra potential for load and pop. The Raptor LTD handles chop extremely well and flies upwind with a solid amount of grip and is fun off the wind on rail-to-rail carves. The Raptor LTD features a black version of the Hexa binding which offers four zones of Velcro adjustment with a nice neoprene feel against the top of your foot that is all encompassing. Each of the four anchors for the strap adjustment can be moved forward and aft to achieve the perfect fit to the top of foot. The footpads got great reviews with subtle cupping contour around your heel, good arch support, a solid toe ridge and a soft to medium rubber base. Overall, the Hexa binding delivers the perfect combination of customization for comfort while delivering control and performance.
