Is anyone riding the brand new GK Bolic? Has anyone tested it? At least GK is trying something a bit different with the tapered side cut a bit like a snow board. Yes, I know the Door Spleen have side cut too, but those are light wind boards.

Is anyone riding these boards yet? Has anyone demoed them? What does GK claim about them?

Desperately calling for a cool one in the dessert Ed?
Maybe no one at the forum has them yet,they look good though. F-one
also uses the parabolic outline shape since last year,this outline provides their boards with much control at high speeds in chop.

It is a different design than the mainstream so I am curious about performance differences. I suspect that it has good pop due to wide tips but also as you alluded that it may be good in the chop. I will check out the F-one.

Don't get fooled by the sizes of last years Sk8's they are narrower than advertised,I think the f-one guys virtually completed the parabolic outlines
to a traditional curve ,so the 37 is in fact 35.
This is exactly under your foot.
A friend of mine rides the 118-39 came upon it after trying lots of boards.

Only the toeside has a parabolic outline? It would make more sense to me if it was the other way around.

Or maybe the pads can be mounted both ways and you get 2 boards for the price of one?

Maybe I am wrong but I think that is an optical illusion due to the graphics. It looks symetrical to me with both sides having a slight sidecut.

I had one in my hands last week.
They are symmetrical.
Very thin, and felt very light (board was nude)
A lot of flex.

They look awesome. I can't wait to demo one...

Hi guys, in Italy I'm using GK BOLIC since september last year and I can say the board having a lot of central volume (not beeing rounded shape) and this is a good help for glaiding. A good flex in the center board helps in turning. The upwind ability is good. You have to stay more central with weight.
Good shape and good graphics to couple with GKSONIC see picture 8)
