Twin (2012 Re-Issue)


Twin (2012 Re-Issue)

We are making a re-issue of last years panda Twin! AND you are getting the 2013 shape!

Updated shape to accommodate larger wheels and narrower trucks! This flexy carving design made of maple + fibreglass provides optimal energy return. It’s concave gives you a good edge to edge grip for huge slides & speedy hill bombs.

The dropthrough mounting lowers the centre of gravity and makes the board more comfortable and stable.

All in a all. The Twin is one of our most versatile boards in a responsive and lively package!

    i was wondering what the differences there are between the twin and twin 2012, because i saw on boardlife.se that there are 2 models with the panda graphics
    2012 model are a little shorter and a little wider, how does that affect the feel and the use?

      Hi Elias!
      The 2012 Twin has a softer flex compared the 2013 re-issue. This is because we have moved the glassfibre plies from inside the board to the top and bottom plies of the 2013 deck, making it stiffer.
      Regarding the shape changes, they are minor, but the 2013 version can accommodate bigger wheels (76mm +) compared to the 2012 version.
      The size changes are very small and does not affect the feel/use, but the flex does. If you prefer a softer flex, you should go for the 2012 version, if you prefer a stiffer flex you should go for the 2013 version.
      Hope this helps!
