Wakeboarding is the only board sport where your shoulders and hips are not always parallel with each other. Mike Ferraro and Ronix developers understood this fact and created the Ronix Vault Wakeboard to eliminate the days of transferring from the wake in an unnatural position and to give the rider the most control possible.
If you’re looking for an extremely versatile wakeboard that has been modified and built to develop to your specific riding style, look now further than the Ronix Vault Wakeboard.
Ronix Vault Wakeboard Review and Buying Guide 2019
This innovative wakeboard recognizes that your body is crossed up riding toeside. The design of the shape, rocker, fins and placement have been altered to allow the rider to point the board with maximum grip to the wake without requiring excessive attack angle. The shape is compression molded. The early rocker arc has a more mellow degree which provides a much smoother and more consistent glide while carrying speed up the transition and allows tricks to be landed further out.
The towside rail is thinned out to sit deeper in the water which creates even further additional grip. At the same time, the heelside rail starts of soft and full for a mellower transition and then it blends to a more vertical sidewall with less resistance on the water to ride with ease. The heelside was designed for a rider to be facing the boat with a more natural position to be able to point the board to the wake as they choose.
The Ronix Vault is designed to be asymmetrical not to accommodate entry level riders, but to develop your riding style and give you complete control along with the toe/heelside versatility. Many contests have been won on the WWA Nationals and Worlds using the Ronix Vault Wakeboard.
Other features included in the wakeboard have made typical weaknesses strengths in this wakeboard. The Monocoque is wrapped glass from the top to the bottom, so the flash line is no longer the weak point of the board, it is the strongest. The wakeboard is also equipped with a Krypto Cable, 4 Molded asymmetric fins, 2 fiberglass fins and other features to keep beginners and advanced riders guessing about what else this wakeboard is capable of.

Ronix Vault Wakeboard Product Details
3-Stage – An exaggerated rocker line with a later arc provides a more explosive pop. This style of rocker creates instant explosion off the wake.
4 (1 Stored Energy – 10 Instant Energy) – More stored energy means the rider is given more time to generate the full lift from the power building from the tip all the way to the tail of the board. Instant energy generates quick lift and snap off the wake with an extra kick.
G&R Channels – Grip and Release Channels have all the traction you need for riding behind a boat or for cable riding without causing unneeded resistance with the water.
Asymmetrical Rail Design – Thinner sharper toeside rail with a fuller vertical heelside rail. An asymmetrical design improves toeside and heelside maneuverability for easier carving.
Low Friction Base – Developed for the most glide speed in high-end boat boards
2 Fiberglass 1.7″ Hook Fins
Designed By Mike Ferraro
M6 Inserts – A higher thread count means more hold on a shallower depth, allowing thinner board profiles with shorter inserts. This results in more board feel without sacrificing boot lock down.
