Description

The Kiwi. An ancient Timber Board, but remade to keep up with the top of the line skaters in 2023.

New for 2K22:

  • Better and sharper graphic, more defined and brighter colours with higher contrast.
  • New pressing method and a tweaked lay-up with a more even distribution of forces which results in a more balanced and stronger deck.
  • Abrasion resistant top finish to keep that colour looking good.
  • Dancergrip (clear) as a standard on all 2K22 decks. Can be combined with regular or SYS grip too as it will still stick as usual.

General Description

The Kiwi is the new standard for fluid dancing, hardcore freestyle and elegance in the world of longboarding. Get your hands on this bird to summon the spirits of old and impress your friends and family. The best board ever made. Can you believe it’s only 2.1 kilograms? That’s some NASA-level shit.

Camber. Why? Well, here at Timber we actually like it, but it’s really hard to do well. The kiwi is a result of 7 years of development, since the first days we started.
The kiwi is different from most camber boards, in the way that it only adds to the feel, instead of making it feel uncomfortable. When standing on the kiwi, it levels out. This results in a spring-like effect while shifting your weight. Because the camber isn’t extreme (but enough) it will only add to the feeling, instead of being an obstacle to overcome during your dancing.

To speak of the Kiwi as a board with camber is not accurate enough. The board actually has a so-called ‘mustache concave’. The board goes down from the kicks to just behind the stance, where it curves upwards into a mellow camber. This design makes it so that if you are used to either rocker or camber, this board feels comfortable. The whole combination of curves gives the board inner tension, giving you that distinctive ‘twang’ in your chops.

Picking the right flex

Flex: Flex is for riders between 40-65 kilograms. Between 50-60 kilograms this flextype will level out when you stand on it.

Medium: Medium is for riders between 60-85 kilograms. Between 70-80 kilograms this flextype will level out when you stand on it.

Stiff: Stiff is for riders between 75-100+ kilograms. Between 85-95 kilograms this flextype will level out when you stand on it.

Concave
Just like most Timber boards, the concave is subtle but complex. The most notable things are the concave at the bolts, the radial concave at the waist and the tub-concave at the stances.
The stance feels really solid and level and gives you a feeling of being home. The waist concave is made in a continuous curve to give a very unique feeling to the camber. When you move around it will always feel sort of flat, but with a spring-like effect when you shift your weight around. This will give your Peter Pan’s and other dance moves a lot of energy. Combining all the different concaves at various positions of the board with the camber in the middle makes the Kiwi feel and skate great from the first ride and it will stay great thanks to a carefully chosen combination of glassfiber and carbonfiber.

Don’t forget the concave at the bolts, contributing to the incredible strength of the kicks and giving you a good idea on where you place your feet.

Kicks
The concave protrudes throughout the kicks, making them very stiff. This in turn gives the board a steady pop. The shape of the Kiwi makes it so that the trucks are under a very slight angle which will increase when your weight is in the middle of the board. In every orientation whether it’s in a manual or a blunt slide, it feels somehow ‘right’. The shape of the kick is based on the roundness of the Flamingo, but is a bit different. The roundness makes flipping this board a breeze, but the slight added angle gives you the control to get those difficult, technical tricks like pressure flips. Next to this the shape is complimentary to the rest of the shape when it comes to wear and tear. Impact points have large surfaces making chipping a lot less likely.

Style
Fast fluid dancing, high pop technical freestyle. But most of all: It’s really fun.
