About O’Brien Ion Kneeboard, 2018 Version
Inspired by the industry leading technology of the SoZo, the Ion is constructed using the same sandwich” technology for light weight, a nearly perfect flex pattern, and spectacular control. The Ion was specifically designed to work equally well behind the boat and on cable, with a bit more flex than the SoZo to absorb impacts and make turns nearly automatic. The continuous rocker line gives great control on obstacles, sliders and kickers. The Ion is very fast yet supremely maneuverable, and landings are incredibly forgiving due to the clean shape, continuous rocker, and softer flex pattern. The Ion is unquestionably a top performer in knee boarding.
The Feather Core provides maximum float and minimum weight. O’Brien’s new Feather Core is developed to reduce weight for more control in the air and to maintain its profile up the transition of the wake for maximum boost. Built for pure boat performance. Strapping in is made comfortable with the 3″ (7.6 cm) padded strap. The Ion measures (L x W) 51.4″ x 21.9″ (130 .56 cm x 55.6 cm), has a tip rocker that is 3.4″ (8.6 cm), and a tail rocker 1.8″ (4.6 cm) and a belly of 0.54″ (1.4 cm). Board comes with an owner’s manual.
