Shinn Ronson Chromatic
Radical POP, amazing grip and outstanding control. The Shinn Ronson Chromatic fullfils your demands as a dynamic kiteboarder not willing to be limited by conditions or riding style. Never before have we created a board that bridges the gap between freestyle and freeride so effortlessly. As a dynamic kiteboarder not willing to be limited by conditions or riding style Ronson will fulfil all your demands. There is no board on the market that bridges the gap between freestyle and freeride so effortlessly.
Shinn have utilised and developed the technological lessons learnt from the development of the Slicer Split TT to bring you a board that seamlessly bridges the gap between freestyle and freeride. The all new dual-track base channels add rail grip and radically increase efficiency achieving the seemingly impossible combination of better upwind and lightwind performance and improved top end grip at the same time.
Any rider of intermediate level or above will love the feeling of the board doing the work for you under your feet.... with Ronson you’ll never have the wrong deck under your feet again.
The combination of technologies offers previously unheard-of levels of comfort in a performance board. The split concave increases edge grip for a more explosive POP and at the same time dissipates impacts saving knees during hard landings and choppy waters alike whilst the Double Stepped Tips re-direct water as it exits the boards cutting drag and increasing directional stability without the need to resort to over sized fins.
Gone are the days of needing multiple boards to cover every set of conditions – X-Over / Enduro call it what you will if your riding style combines all riding styles depending on the conditions then Ronson is surely the board for you.
There are a number of features that make the Shinn Ronson Chromatic Kiteboard rides so well:
90 degree entry for improved edge grip at speed and buttery smooth landings.
Double Stepped Tips:
Improved carving POP whilst maintaining upwind drive.
Improved Flex Control:
It’s no secret, softer tips add control to the board whilst stiffer ones improve POP…. until now! Through endless tests and experiments Shinn have used the conduits to re-define tail flex and provide control AND POP; the best of both worlds!
No spray, ever, no matter how choppy, no matter what your stance is, what your carving position, where you place your pads; it’s gone, completely. The Ronson has cured it using only limited rocker curve, so it’s still efficient with a wide windrange.
The flex, grip and ease of the Ronson makes it a total joy in chop. Whether you are riding in 6 metre kite conditions, the Ronson makes it easy, relaxed and fun.
It’s a board that you can push to the ragged edge of control, without ever feeling nervous or hesitant. The first thing to come unstuck is never your stance or balance!
Every twin suffers from back foot loading, but some twins have to be ridden with excessive back foot pressure, either to stop the nose from burying when things get out of shape, or to stop you getting spray in your face. The Ronson is a joy, it feels so solid underfoot that you can shift you weight around a great deal – even 50-50 when you are tired. Ride it hour after hour and your sessions will be so much fun!
Toeside carving on a twin is always going to be tenuous. Heelside carving is better than many directional boards. Not only does it grip through the turn, without ever feeling like it’s going to pop out (the more you push the deeper into the water it sinks), but it stores so much speed – when you come out of the most aggressive of carves you are still really travelling. It’s incredible round corners.
The rocker is naturally very stable with any outline, but the Ronson outline proved to be even more stable and efficient. It encourages you to push faster and harder until you can push no more. So effortless to ride; so trusting that in a straight line it never comes unstuck, which makes it perfect for experts and intermediates alike.
The ability of the board to heel-side carve without losing speed makes it excellent for wake style pop, as well as having plenty of traditional pop. Hardcore freestyle is easily within it’s grasp but for everyone who does not spend half their session unhooked the Ronson is a far superior board for multidiscipline freestyle.
Choosing your board size:
Whilst many riders still look at the length of the board when choosing their size it's much more relevant to look at the width. The length of the board can be affected by the shaping of the tip and tail - which in reality plays no part in the performance of the board.
To clarify the situation further the difference in surface are between a 130 x 40 and a 130 x 42 is approximately 260cm2 whilst increasing the length of a 130 x 40 to 135 x 40 would give an increase in surface area of less than 200cm2 - nearly 25% less!
Footbed and Straps:
The connection between rider and board can make or break the quality of your ride. Of course they should look slick but only after the function is perfect.
Shinn Kiteboarding's deep section EVA cushioning ensures luxurious comfort even during the harshest landings, whilst a carefully placed section of memory foam adjusts the surface to the shape of your feet after only a couple of hours riding. Multi-position fixation points allow you to fine tune your stance to perfection. The Shinn footstrap has been shaped to provide maximum grip on your foot with minimal pressure points and complete ease of adjustability.
All Shinn twin tips are supplied with high visibility Nylon fins and deck protection plates. Shaped exclusively for Shinn (for unsurpassed durability), this 53mm shape provides exceptional grip for it's size whilst still offering great manoeuvrability.

For anyone with aggressive tendencies with the need for extra pop the Ronson is so much fun. For the nervous it is still ideal, in truth this board is for everyone. Although the Ronson can be aggressive, it is NEVER difficult or uncomfortable.
