The HQ Raid ATB Thief 8in mountainboard is a the lighter version of the HQ Thief for downhill and kite riding. If you want a big long board with channel trucks and standard size tyres then this the one for you! Coming with channel trucks and 8in tyres the Thief is very stable and low to the deck and gives great stability. The Raid Thief 8in is built for bigger adult riders that can handle the extra length and weight of the board. Although the board looks long in comparison to some others it's actually not that heavy or cumbersome for older riders that want to bomb though and carve with good stability .
This is very popular design for European kiteboarders who like the long low and channel truck stability. This board carves well with the standard setup but can be stiffened up for more high speed stability for downhilling. There is also a heavier 9in tyre board still with the stability of the channel trucks if you want to handle the roughest terrain. Built with a composite deck then the board is suitable for riders up to 110kg so it's super tough.
