I have been on my new set up for about a month now and not mentioned what I’m riding?! This year I am on the Syn board (in a 137cm) and Syn bindings (in tiny). Its a lush set up and I am loving it!! This is the low down..
The Syn is the shape of choice for the Hyperlite It Girls Team and is proven on tour, cables & sliders. The Syn carries great speed into the wake and has all the pop you need to play with. With a variable edge design which rolls from soft between your feet to a sharp cupped rail tip and tail, this board is as quick and responsive as you like. A new feature that strays from traditional Hyperlite shapes however is the Syn’s shorter curved molded in fins. Ending almost two inches from the tip and tail of the board, its just enough fin to know its there and working but nothing to delay release off the wake. I ride it on the cable and it rocks off the flat, kickers & sliders!!
This is a first, there has never been a boot in the Hyperlite line designed specifically for a female rider. The completely new Syn boot is built from scratch to fit and function for ladies looking to progress their riding. Starting with a ladies specific last, the new Syn has reduced internal volume and a lower cuff to accurately fit a women’s foot and calf. The dual Quick Cinch lace system also allows for fine tuning of boot tension between the upper and lower zones. All of these features are wrapped up on our new Low Pro plate system which puts the rider closer to the deck of the board for maximum feel and control. These are the most comfortable bindings I’ve ridden yet!
