HQ Raid ATB Thief 9in Mountainboard
chunky long and low board for bombing hills at serious speed
The HQ Raid ATB Thief 9in is a a good board for larger adults wanting to go down hills, & fast. This board is quite low and stiff and therefore not suitable for young riders.
The HQ Raid ATB Thief 9in mountainboard is a tank for downhill and kite riding. If you want a big long board with big tyres then this the one for you! Coming with channel trucks and 9in tyres the Thief is a force to be reckoned with. Build from the Scrub Predator of the past this board is built to bigger adult riders that can handle the extra size and weight of the board. Although the board looks large in comparison to some others it's actually not that heavy or cumbersome for older riders that want to bomb though or feel they want more flotation on mud and softer sand.
This is very popular design for European kiteboarders who like the long low and big tyres that can romp through everything super easily. This board carves well with the standard setup but can be stiffened up for more high speed stability for downhilling. There is also a lighter 8in tyre board still with the stability of the channel trucks. Built with a composite deck then the board is suitable for riders up to 110kg so it's super tough.
