Here’s a little bit of info on the Kush Hi Concave.
Poured from an 80a durometer urethane (like a soft skateboard wheel), it’s forgiving under-foot and has just enough give to make foot fatigue a thing of the past without sacrificing responsiveness! Goodbye wood, hello urethane! We tested multiple different durometers with a wide range of rider weights, shoe sizes, and riding styles to find the ideal amount of “kush”. Yeah, it’s basically like having Shred Soles Snowboarding and Skateboarding Insoles for your OW.
HEAVY CONCAVE BLEND
We took the original Kush and hit it with a fresh overhaul to satisfy the cravings of those deep concave lovers. It features a heavier more aggressive concave that locks your foot for gnarly trails while still have a nice sole hugging platform for those long 20+ mile expeditions and late night curb sessions! We also dipped a sweet little lock-in pocket into the rear kick tail for those of you ride rear foot completely back. The kick tail was reworked to add a steeper lip without extending to a super high wing off the back which brings a more uniform visual aesthetic to your OW. As a final touch, the edges are rounded over at a fat bevel so the edges are extremely comfortable regardless of your shoe size.
FLIGHT FENDER COMPATIBLE
Works with FlightFin's FlightFender... so fly high.
This is by far, the most durable foot pad ever made. The urethane will never chip, crack, break, or snap. GUARANTEED. The underside bumper nut inserts were poured directly into the mold so they will never spin out on you. We also added an extra screw attachment point to the top of the foot pad to reduce thread stripping due to shear stress on rear-end crashes. So yeah, if you can somehow manage to break a Kush Hi Concave, I will personally send you a brand new one (and a beer) for free.
UPGRADED GRIP TAPE
Every Kush Hi Concave comes with a special cut TFL Grip pre-applied. We also include an extra sheet of regular cut TFL Grip so you can slap it on your front pad for that uniform steez and board control.
Im not sure if it is just the grip tape or the combination of the two but I feel like my feet are both more stable and less need to adjust my back foot. The concave pad combined with the steep tail allow my back foot to feel very "planted."
This is by far the best thing I have done for my XR and Pint. No more foot fatigue, better control and better grip. Love it. I would have gotten the regular Kush for the XR though as the Hi part is further back than I place my foot and I don't really use it. Maybe I will update this review someday to change that, but for now the regular Kush would have worked just as well. In case anyone is trying to decide.
I had over 1000 miles on my board before getting a new footpad, and im kicking myself for waiting so long. The Kush pad is sooooo comfortable and has eliminated my rear foot fatigue for long rides.
Incredible improvement from the stock pad. Easy install and Float Life's customer service is SUPERB as always. Thanks for being awesome!
It definitely changes the ride experience.it really feels like surfing . The grip tape they use is amazing very sticky with better control .
