2020 Double-Up ChillV Features Review
Ultimate flex married with DUP’s signature durability. Tobias Michel is the new breed of rail rider, with a fresh outlook and style. It’s this fresh outlook and style that went into designing the Chilv.
Hello Chris O'Shea from WelcomeWakenSnow.co.au and today but we're having a look at the Double Up ChilV for 2020. This board is looking amazing this year. It got this bird house inspired graphic.
Super skate style gotta go up like this rad like white matte and just sort of fade out through here which has some lines through it. Big this graphic, it's the ChilV so that's a Toby's Pro-Model for DUP. You have the classic DUP on the bottom. To those of you that don't know much about Double Up, Double Up is the only Australian owned wakeboard company in the world and that's legendary.
Double Up been around seems like the early nineties, I reckon, with classic riders like Luke Wolf, one of the first Australians just dropping mad havens overseas. And yeah, super legit company and they're definitely bringing it with this new board. So it is features like got an upgrade this year on the base.
So the base of this board is the Dyna6 now. They used to put Dyna4. So it's a thicker more durable base and it's also a lighter. That's definitely one thing that you noticed when you grab this board, pick it up and it super super light and that's probably because of the Paulonia Wood Core. That has which is your lightest, most snappy wood that you can have in a wakeboard. It also got a sizing length. It's come in a 137, a 141 and 145.
So a good little size range right there and DUP says does the shape of this board is a 3 stage rocker board which means it has three different stages through the rocker when I'm looking at it tho. I don't really see it just kind looks like continuous rocker board. Maybe it's like slightly here and here and kicks up a lil' bit more. The amount of rocker that the board has is about 3 inches of rocker. If you measure the rocker through the center here and 3 inches of rocker from my experience,
It gives you a board that has really really good pops still but isn't too much rocker towards where the board is gonna to be slow. This board is the softest board. That has the most flex in the DUP line and that's probably because ChilV loves to shred the rail. So it's a really good sort of around board than doing everything on the cable but yeah definitely sort of that rail guy that loves like pressing harder, getting to like solid presses.
Then we've also got what they called simple channel design. So real minimalist base but it has probably like 2 mill little stepping right here that runs down all the way to here and it kind of gets more and more faint from the nose. You got your nice lock in section here but also gives you just that a little bit more traction for like ollying up edge or if you want to do water tricks and stuff like that.
Same with the drop edge. So the edge here just drops down has ,a little bit, the drop, if you see there, that's gonna allow the board's locking on the edge stronger and then also release better. Yeah I think that's most of the features the ChillV. I'm super hyped on the way this thing look and it's gonna rot amazing.
The DUP team really step it up this year. Got some amazing riders that been recognize. I'm sure you've seen new rider Mitch Langfield for recommends, SIAM by Mitch and Jacob Vinall. Yeah, it's a real good one for 2020.
