Apex Kessler Gecko Plates
Belle e interssanti le nuove piastre della Apex.
Purtroppo potranno essere montate solo su tavole predisposte di boccolatura UPM.
Montaggio asimmetrico, isolamento dalle vibrazioni, minor impronta e maggiore pressione, prezzo assolutamente abbordabile.
Introducing the Gecko Plate
Apex Sport and Kessler Engineering are pleased to announce the all new, patent pending Gecko Plate.
The Gecko is a snowboard riser plate like no other. Besides offering more heel and toe snow clearance, the Gecko Plate increases and distributes edge pressure, absorbs chatter and reduces the binding footprint on the snowboard. With 60% less footprint, the deadspot created by bindings and hard plastic risers is virtually eliminated. The snowboard carves freely as your builder intended.
Interchangeable dampening pads and asymmetrical setup options allow the rider to personalize the Gecko to his or her personal riding style and binding setup.
All this in a slick, lightweight carbon fiber package.
Three different versions of the Gecko are available. Each one is designed for specific board shapes and riding style.
Carve: for hardboot racers and carvers
Cross: for hard charging snowboardcross racers and aggressive freeriders
Free: for all softbooters and banked slalom
Our world class test team had this to say:
"Smooths out the chatter"
"Lets me charge hard without worrying about folding the nose"
"I won't race without it"
"Send three more"
Eliminate Boot Out
13mm lift eliminates toe and heel drag especially for big footed riders.
More Edge Pressure
Increased leverage and position of urethane pads directs pressure to edges for more responsive carving.
Asymmetrical installation to match your binding angles for more directed power.
Urethane bumper pads absorb chatter for a smoother, less tiring ride.
Footprint of the Gecko Plate is 60% less than a standard binding, allowing the board to flex more naturally.
Aerospace Grade Carbon Fiber
We only use the finest raw materials available, sourced from Germany and California.
Tune Your Ride
Swap out urethane Power Pads for more dampening or more response – without remove your bindings
Co-Enginneered by Kessler and Apex
Another partnership from the leaders in World Cup and Olympic snowboard technology.
Interchangeable Bumpers to Tune Your Ride
Urethane pads deliver power to the edge of the snowboard and distribute pressure along a greater distance. The snowboard flexes in a more natural and predictable manner.
At the same time, by controlling the density of the Bumper Pads and the stiffness of the carbon fiber deck, the Gecko Plate absorbs chatter and vibration, without compromising snow feel, offering a less tiring ride. An important factor on a long race day.
The best part? You can swap out the bumpers for harder or softer pads for more response or more dampening – without having to remove your bindings or plate.
The Gecko Plate system is composed of four individual plates that are independently placed on your snowboard.
The toeside plate can be placed forward of the heel to match your binding angle. This allows for more efficient delivery of pressure from the most powerful part of your foot to the edge of the snowboard.
I don't want to ride my Kessler banked slalom board without them. Such a great setup!
