Whenever we get the opportunity to test the latest iteration of the Ronix One, the expectations are high as this board is a combination of two of the most successful minds in the sport; Nic Rapa and Danny Harf. As you would expect the first thing we looked at when we got the chance to hop on this board was the pop. As usual, this board delivered a ton of it. The Ronix One boasts an advanced 3-stage rocker and along with any 3-stage rocker board you typically gain a lot of extra pop at the top of the wake. The trade off to that pop is that landings and on water speed require a bit more experience. The One took a bit of getting used to initially, as the 3-stage rocker did slow things up, but the impressive pop on this board certainly made up for it. The One also tracked extremely well. It was very effortless to cut towards the wake which is what made the slower water speed a bit strange. In a straight line the board felt slow, but then once you begin to edge at the wake, the speed picks up more like a mellow 3-stage or even a continuous rocker board. The ingredients to make this board work are all there; it has an amazing pop, great tracking, and decent landings. It’s up to the rider to put those ingredients together to make it magic. Adjusting to this board is essential but the proof is in the pudding when year after year Nic Rapa wins championships with the Ronix One strapped to his feet.

Ronix keeps all of this “Blackout Technology” pretty under wraps, but what we do know is that the RXT features the same tech as the Ronix One but with a completely different approach to the shape. The most glaring contrast is this board’s continuous rocker profile, which gave it a completely unique ride in comparison to the One. To expand further on this contrast, the Ronix One, provided great pop, but was difficult to find consistency at the start of our testing, however the RXT was the complete opposite. Consistency was the name of the game when it came to this board. It was easy to generate decent pop and landings were always soft and rolling edge to edge was smooth and easy as well. To put simply, the RXT made it easy to know what you were going to get no matter what you were doing. It may have been a bit more difficult to squeeze every inch out of those big airs, but the tradeoff was that the board was comfortable from the get go. This board is easy to understand while still giving you the tools to ride at the same level as the top athletes in the sport.

Ronix Kinetik Project 150

MSRP: $570
BUY NOW

The Kinetik lineup has been around for years now amongst Ronix’s cable boards. This tried and true shape was spearheaded by Dom Hernler and has been recognized for providing a solid amount of flex with stability on landings while also being fast across the water. In our review, we found the board tracked really well. Its narrow profile coupled with channels make it very fun to rock edge to edge while also maintaining speed due to its mellow rocker. One thing we noticed was that compared to most cable boards in our testing, the Kinetik was certainly on the stiffer side. The upshot was that landings were soft on the water, and the board wouldn’t fold on itself during bigger rail transfers. The Kinetik offered a uniquely sturdy ride that made the simple things fun, while also providing stability with its shape and flex pattern.

  • Base 7
  • Flex 4
  • Ollie 8.5
  • Tracking 5
  • Landings 8

2022 RONIX WAKEBOARD ATMOS
Ronix Atmos 148

MSRP: $593
BUY NOW

One of Ronix’s most notable boards in recent years, the Top Notch Pro was taken off the market to be replaced by the Atmos. At first glance the graphic is a clean solid color design with a shape very similar to the Top Notch Pro, but what makes this year’s Atmos different is under the hood. In its core, the Atmos boasts a new “spine” that runs tip to tail which allows the softer horizontal wood to run edge to edge. This creates a soft board that can withstand the Peacock brothers’ aggressive style of riding. In our testing we found that this change allowed the rider to really feel the rail underneath your feet, especially in comparison to other boards in Ronix’s cable lineup. The mellow channels running tip to tail also allowed for better tracking without being a nuisance when coming off early on rails. Overall this is a great playful board that can let loose when you need, but also can dig in for those heavy kicker hits.

  • Base 7
  • Flex 7
  • Ollie 7
  • Tracking 4.5
  • Landings 7
