It occured to me in a recent post that it's pretty hard to find actual blunted tip boards out there. I don't mean those slightly squared off versions, I mean something with more effective edge than a regular old Burton Custom.
For example, the Burton Custom (camber) in 160 cm has 124 cm effective edge, for an effective edge to total edge ratio of 0.78. Most regular boards have roughly the same effective edge ratio (Neversummer Raptor is basically identical for what it's worth). The K2 Peacekeeper and Ultra Dream actually have SHORTER effective edges than the Burton Custom and NS Raptor, despite the blunted tip look.
Here's some that I know of... and yes some are obvious.
Virus Avalanche FLP AFT - 141 cm effective edge on a 160 cm board (0.88 ratio) Also Virus UFC Boardercross and Boardercross competition
Oxess Freeride - 126/157 = 0.80 ratio
Oxess Boardercross - 139/159 = 0.87
Kessler The Ride - 137.25/163 = 0.84 Ratio (thanks to bseracka
for measuring his board!)
Donek Incline - Site lists running length which is not equal to effective edge... Anyone own one that can measure?
Volkl Coal XT - 128/158 = 0.81
Volkl Coal Race - 144/159 = 0.91 (note: this board has a tail like a jones hovercraft)
Fullbag Diamond Blade -137.5/163 = 0.84
Prior use to make a BX board. I was at the factory last week and was oogling a BX board and the guy told me it was the last of it's kind.
What else is out there? I searched a lot of the big names but couldn't find anything with true blunted tips (K2, Nitro, Neversummer, Ride, Head, Lib Tech, Venture, Rossignol, Yes, Jones, Palmer, etc.)
