Default Board Flex Ratting

Thought it would be a good idea to have people post up the flex of the boards they have ridden. These will be biased opinions but, maybe if we get enough posts it could be a nice reference to sorta compare board flex.


1 being the very flexy
10 being very stiff

I'll start

(4.5) Rome Agent 156
(4) Capita Stairmaster 148

whats the basis though ... if mr x has ridden 10 boards total and mr y has ridden 5 total ... there is a better chance mr x will rate it one to two points differently because he has more to compare with

the number is relative only within the same company to be truly accurate

This is a good idea, but I'm not too sure how this should work. What are you rating your board flex against? There needs to be some standard to base your flex on. As an example of how this could vary so much, if I think the Signal Park Rocker is a 4, would the Agent be an 9?

I'd just go on your own opinion. Someone will find some combarable and then be able to equate that way.

Board flex determined by a bunch of guys hand flexing in a shop saying it feels like a 6 no it feels like a 7 ok we'll rate it a 6.5
