Default roxy ollie pop - what is tnt base?

i want to get my girlfriend a new board with btx.. any idea what the TNT base on the ollie pop is?

is that a fancy name for extruded, or is this a real sintered base?

i liked to b-nice from gnu, but then saw that it had an extruded base. i'd rather get something with a sintered base.

i've seen some great reviews on this board as well--please share your feedback!

thanks for the help.

Sometimes they use extruded for "rail boards" and such because it's easier to repair the base. It also reduces the price "theoretically" because some people who go for "rail boards" don't want to pay a lot for it to bang it up later. I say "theorectically" because in this case you are paying for 4 letters in addition to the board.

hey thanks for the responses, and yes i am familiar with the differences. i just didnt see it explicitly stated that tnt = extruded anywhere.

good to know though.

i think i've narrowed the choices down to a gnu b-nice or the roxy ollie pop anyhow. shes riding a vinyl right now which i believe also has an extruded base and she hasnt had any real set backs with it.

any opinions there? if not thanks again!

What kind of riding does she like to do?

The B-Nice is a bit more focused on beginners, so the Ollie Pop might be a better choice. The Gnu B-street and the Roxy Eminence are both very similar to the Ollie Pop, so consider those boards if you prefer a sintered base. I ride the B-street all-mountain and I love it! Performs well everywhere, with the exception of bumpy terrain.

thanks for the feedback!

she is mainly an all mountain rider. we are starting to drag her on our laps through the park, but she is hesitant to get too involved. while the banana boards are freestyle oriented, i think they would be awesome for her to improve on her switch riding.

i'll check out the b-street. i actually saw another post of yours where you had some really good things to say about it. the eminence is another board i hadnt considered, so i'll check it out as well.

its hard to buy boards without demoing them, but i just want to get her involved with magnetraction for the ice coast out here. she thinks i'm crazy for saying that it works so well--but i want to show her otherwise!

Just FYI: The B-street and the Eminence are the EXACT same board. They just have different graphics and come in different sizes.

Have you considered Never Summer? They have Vario Grip, which is really similar to magnetraction. The Pandora and the Infinity would be two other great choices.

Anyway...good luck on your search!

i'll take a look at the NS boards as well. i know everyone here loves them--i havent ridden one in probably 10 years, but i like the brand a lot.

are the gnu b-nice and roxy ollie pop not the same boards too? they seem to be very similar just like the eminence and b-street.

thanks again!

They aren't identical. The B-Nice is a directional twin, while the Ollie Pop is a true twin, for example. If your girl wants to be able to ride switch easily, go for a true twin shape.

Some reviews:
The author of this blog rode a B-street last season and loved it. The season she's on an Ollie Pop. Here is the link to her blog. Have a look around for some reviews/opinions on various boards. Tundra Wookie
