IGNITE

THE NEW BOOSTING SENSATION

Ultra-quick to plane, with plenty of of volume thanks to its thick tail, the Ignite accelerates like a lightning bolt. Combine it with a hyper-fast top speed from its slalom rockerline, its short compact nose and you have a board made for the biggest jumps and the quickest jibes with instant exit speed. That thick tail simply floats you out of jibes at full-speed with so much ease.

Switch to the supplied freestyle fin, set footstraps in their freestyle settings and the Ignite transforms into the extreme freestyle board that pops, accelerates and rotates extremely fast for easier triple-rotations.

CARBON REFLEX

THE IGNITE AT A GLANCE

It’s a new shape concept, mixing freestyle and super-speed. They are shorter by a massive 13cm to make them super reactive. They have a new, faster rocker with less tail kick to boost top speed and acceleration. The maximum thickness point is now directly under your back foot and the volume distribution is more concentrated between your feet for total control.

THE IGNITE IN DETAIL

TWO FINS INCLUDED

Drake Ready to Freestyle 18cm / 19cm / 21cm for pure freestyle.
Drake FreeWave 24cm / 26cm / 28cm for supercross and high wind bump and jump.

COLOR CODING SYSTEM

Freestyle: place your mast base and footstraps following the red marks
Freeride: place your mast base and footstraps following the white marks

Rockerline

The most important element behind the Ignite’s speed: ultra-fast rocker drawn from the iSonic slalom boards and adapted to the ultra-compact outline of the Ignites.

Bottom Shapes

The tail has a slight vee, like slalom boards, for more speed. This vee accentuates towards the front of the board for more forgiveness during rotational freestyle moves, more comfort and more control when cutting through heavy chop.

TAIL SHAPE

The maximum thickness point of an Ignite is directly under your back foot. This volume distribution, more concentrated between your feet, gives you total control and pop in all maneuvers.

POWERBOX

The Ignite features a Power Box for the most secure and strongest fit available today.

Yulex footstraps and thick pads

The Drake footstraps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, CO² emitted during the manufacturing process is reduced by 80%. The remaining 15% of synthetic neoprene is kept to improve UV resistance.

Carefully sourced with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel.

The Ignites feature 10mm thick footpads with a diamond grooving pattern that provides grip and comfort over extended sessions while being resistant to wear-and-tear.

RIDERS’ COMMENTS

Slide 11 TIMES FREESTYLE WORLD CHAMPION "The new ignite is a dream come true!
Because of the short length and the sharper rails the ignite is reactive and explosive, yet easy to handle. On the water it allows me to get creative and perform to my highest level. It feels like a toy under my feet which makes every session an absolute pleasure. The ignite has sparked a new freestyle fire in me which I’m extremely excited about!"
SARAH QUITA OFFRINGA
Slide FORMER FREESTYLE WORLD CHAMPION
"The new generation of freestyle boards, it has it all! The new concept freestyle, freeride just suit more people. The freestyle and freewave fin and the extra outboard strap insert makes it possible to put double straps on the back which is ideal for people just want to go blasting around for bump and jump!

For freestyle the board is very easy for landing you moves. The short length helps allot for radical power moves and the wide nose makes sure you still have to stability for the classic moves."
STEVEN VAN BROECKHOVEN
Slide WINNER OF THE 2019 EPFT SUPER CROSS "Supercross was great fun! I knew with my new board I would have a big chance to win, I transformed my Ignite from freestyle to freeride, meaning large fin and double straps on the back. This set-up gave me a lot more speed and jibing performance. Also for high jumps and forward loops the big fin worked great! I was super stoked on the Super-X racing format and I really hope the PWA can bring it back in the future too. At least the Ignite is ready for it!" STEVEN VAN BROECKHOVEN
