The 2012 Byerly Conspiracy is the result of a collaboration between Aaron Rathy and Scott “Butch” Bouchard. Butch is the mastermind when it comes to board construction. Both molded in fins and 3-stage rocker lines came from his imagination.
This is not your average wakeboard on the market; this board uses glass rope technology not only in the side wall but also in the top deck. Also the four main molded fins are made from an ABS insert making this one of the strongest, most durable boards available for 2012.
The glass rope is an extremely strong and rigid fiberglass woven material, roughly the diameter of a pencil. When it is wrapped 360 degrees around the boards sidewall and on the top deck of the board there is twice the reinforcement and strength. The board will hold its rocker shape all the way up and through the wake.
Dual rope construction makes the board twice as strong as a regular wakeboard allowing Butch to make this board thinner at the tip and tail. Being the thinnest board in the Byerly line, the 2012 Byerly Conspiracy brings forth the aggressive 3 stage pop that all Byerly customers have grown to love!
The four main molded fins are wrapped around an ABS plastic insert. ABS plastic is a bullet proof material most commonly used in snowboard side walls. The purpose of the ABS plastic is when you slide rails the fin will never break down to the core and become waterlogged. The fins are also recessed about 1 inch from tip/tail allowing this board to release early off the wake.
The Conspiracy is a very fast and responsive board that locks on rail, edging into the wake. It has a sharp rail from tip to tail that helps maintain the speed of the board.
Center concave allows for soft landings and speed into the wake but has a real aggressive 3 stage rocker on the perimeter of the board giving you maximum pop when the board is on rail!
This board is for anyone looking for a fast and grippy board with an abrupt 3-stage pop!
