Hyperlite Franchise / Remix Wakeboard Package

Price: $439.99

Ability Level: Beginner-Advanced

Rocker Type: Continuous

The Hyperlite Franchise is a no-nonsense wakeboard that lets its riding do the talking. It's the most universal wakeboard in Hyperlite's lineup and a great option if you need one board for a few riders. A continuous rocker creates a smooth, consistent pop off the wake every time. The familiarity of a similar pop every time makes learning new tricks or adding an extra touch of style to existing tricks much easier. Tapered channels narrow out at both the tip and tail, aligning the dual fin configuration to increase hold while edging out or approaching the wake. The secret recipe that gets this board cooking on the water is its BioLite 3 core - this core material is the lightest, most durable formula created to date by Hyperlite's design team. Durability is important to every rider as you want to invest in a wakeboard that will last for many summers. Each rider on the boat doesn't need their wakeboard when you have one as versatile as the Hyperlite Franchise. Get the whole boat stoked on wakeboarding with this fun, innovative shape.
