Hyperlite Eden 2.0 Wakeboard (with Blue Boots)

Creating a women's shape to take their skills to the next level was the goal behind the new Hyperlite Eden 2.0. Learning from other asymmetrical designs, Hyperlite found that creating a shorter but more effective edge on a rider's toe-side made hard to learn wake jumps that much easier. This is because there is less rail to initiate when applying toe-side pressure. Once set, the smoother toe-side transition is then held by the Eden 2.0's thinner profile molded-in fin, creating less drag and a better release off the top of the wake. Subtle Toe-Side Footbed Risers were also added to help a rider create more leverage when pressure is applied. The longer, more traditional heel-side edge compliments this asymmetrical design by allowing the natural body position of a rider to generate stability and speed into the wake without a loss of pop due to reduced surface area. The Eden 2.0 has been tested and proven to be the best choice for a rider looking to master the foundations of wakeboarding.
