Default Boards like the echelon killlbox?

After riding my friends echelon killbox, I wanted to get one for myself. But can't find any in canada or shipped here.

Are there any other boards like it, with the 3d profile? I have been on the Rock n Rolla, but did not really like it.

I believe Marhar offers a "sideways rocker" (essentially 3d profile) on some of their boards I would check that out. Unfortunately, Echelon went under so I dont think you will be able to find anymore of their boards. Really sucks cuz everyone i know who has one loves them. I think Bataleon's TBT is semi comparable to the 3d profile too.

The Killbox was in last year's line. Echelon completely reinvented the lineup this year and did not offer anything like it. Then, they had a bunch of issues with sourcing and were unable to fulfill a lot of customer pre-orders etc. I think they are kaput.

I have a Killbox 152 but it's fairly thrashed, and not for sale (I like the graphics too much).

I would also point you towards Marhar. The Liftem, Mystick and Grapid have the sideways rocker. I am not sure if they put this on any other models for 2016, might be on the Half Breed but I'm not sure. They make killer boards.

The difference which you won't get, is that the Killbox was designed to ride real short, like the Burton Nug. Marhar doesn't make anything that would be directly comparable to that specifically, but if you're just looking for the base profile, they've got at least 3 decks that will do the trick.

Damn sucks to hear about Echelon. I am glad i pulled the trigger on the Killbox when i did. And then again when they were putting out their testbed stock (scored an Ares with Killbox-graphics for $99!)

Took me near half a day to get used to the width + 3D base, but i love it now. Glad i got a second one with these graphics too because this one is getting pretty hammered

I believe Echelon took the 3D base technology from Omatic (called BS Tech), so any of the Omatic BS tech boards should have a similar feel?
