Just notice on the NKB website that the 2018 directionals are online.
Worth mentioning that all boards seem to feature 'new' double concaves and (genuinely) new grad rails.

Also, what do people think of the new tail on the Nugget CSC?


EDIT: It's not the WAM that disappeared a few years ago. What board was it?

I really like the new metal leash/suicide clip ring design - the old double ring would slide around the chicken loop then get trapped under the harness hook when hooking back in quite often. Can anyone tell me if the new squarer metal ring can be fitted to older North bars? Cheers

You cannot put the newer suicide ring on older chicken loops, however I'm pretty sure you can put the new chicken loops on older bars, which should allow you to run the new ring on older bars.

Haven't actually done this myself, but I'm pretty sure it works. I'll see if I can round up some gear to test it out, if anyone else finds out feel free to chime in.
