Kold Shapes IKON
HIGH PERFORMANCE FREESTYLE
The IKON is the beginning of a new era in high performance freestyle & freeride. The accomplishment of this ultra light carbon board is to unite a very direct feel and explosive pop with a soft flex pattern. We believe that we achieved a level of comfort, which has not been produced in a carbon board before and yet maximised all the positive characteristics of the carbon construction.
To further minimise the weight, we chose a core made of paulownia and balsa wood. The ultra light feeling of the board is perfect for tricks like dark slides, board offs and everybody who enjoys rotating with close to nothing on his feet!
The direct feeling of the carbon board will give you the most precise pop to launch into your highest jumps. The precision of the pop is further increased by the double concave and the complex channel construction. If aiming for your next WOO record you also want to be sure the landings are perfectly soft. Our unique flex pattern truly ensures these soft landings you have always dreamed of on previous carbon constructions!
Despite the forgiving flex, we have also opted for a forgiving outline similar to our POLAR range. This outline enhances a very smooth ride even in choppy conditions and allows you to always find a perfect take-off.
We are very proud to have accomplished the impossible – uniting the precision of a carbon board with the comfort of our POLAR range. Try for yourself!

Our aim is to design the highest performing boards and reduce the impact we have on our planet at the same time. We believe that many of Mother Nature ´s materials such as FLAX and organic resins actually enhance the performance of our products. In addition all the CO2 emissions that occur during the production of our boards are off set by ARKTIK.
The IKON is based on a CNC precision milled paulownia and balsa WOOD CORE. This is the lightest and healthiest option and furthermore it enhances the flex patterns build into the board. To minimise the weight of the board we also milled a 3D top construction!
The DOUBLE CONCAVE offers maximum support during take off and landings! Furthermore it is designed to support the channel construction and provide extra grip when launching into flat spins of a kicker wave - and enhances early planning!
The RATCHET BINDING is the easiest system to adjust while riding. The ratchet allows you to tighten or loosen the strap within seconds! To maximise the comfort we equipped the inside and edges of the strap with MEMORY FOAM.
Air Dampening Pads
The AIR DAMPENING system integrated into our pads is designed to absorb any shock while landing! The air cushion sits underneath and around the heel to offer maximum comfort - no matter if you are landing megaloops or simply ride in choppy waters. To further enhance a perfect stance we equipped the pads with a grippy 3D surface. The TOE RIDGE presses your toes towards the MEMORY FOAM of the binding. We could go on about all the different stance options - but just step in and try them out yourself!
The 3D channels and top construction of the board minimise the weight but also provide extremely precise flex. The board is designed to offer super soft landings and maximum comfort at maximum speed!
The CONTINUOUS ROCKER enhances soft landings. Furthermore it adds manoeuvrability and smoothens the ride in choppy conditions!
The GRIP CHANNELS integrated into the DOUBLE CONCAVE and the tips allow you to have complete control over the edge at any time - even when launching completely overpowered into you next WOO record! The extra grip enhances upwind abilities and allow you to ride smaller fins to ease fast landings.
