Difference between the Butter and Pickle Balance Boards
Difference between the Butter and the Pickle is most evident if the shape of the decks and the length of the banana shaped nubs. The Butter has a shorter overall deck length and increased nub length thereby making the Butter more stable from toe to heal. Conversely the Pickle Nub has an increased deck length with decreased banana nub length thereby making it quicker reacting from toe to heal. Its the smaller nubs that result in an increase challenge.
- Shorter overall deck length (28 inches).
- Elongated banana nub
- Longer overall deck length (30 inches).
- Reduced overal nub design / increased hub height.
Difference between the Flow and Zippy Balance Boards
Although the decks are shaped differently both the Flow and Zippy decks have the same overall running length and are similar in performance. The most significant difference in performance is designed around the Rocks (or rollers). The longer Zippy rock is machined with our patented outrigger design which act as "training wheels" when a rider applies toe or heal pressure to the board. The outriggers allow for increased stability when performing maneuvers requiring toe and heal pressure such as turning spinning and tilting. It's the outrigger design that makes the Zippy ideal for beginner to intermediate riders. Conversely the outrigger-less design of the Flow rock allows the rider to achieve greater toe and heal performance at higher angles thereby making the Flow more challenging and performance driven. The Flow is ideal for intermediate to advanced riders.
