The Stepchild Jibstick Snowboard comes with Trojan Rubber 2.0 impact strips embedded in the sidewall. The RETT is an edge detuning process that dulls the edges between your bindings so you don't have to. You can basically throw bindings on this and take it straight to the streets. The TWIN shape and the ROCKER camber combined with the stability of the Kicker III core make this one of the best jib boards on the market today. The Armadillo plate bindings reinforcement will help prevent insert blowouts. This board also comes with a SNAG FREE base. If you suck at jibing and want to get a whole lot better, the jib stick will improve your jibbing skills.
