    Default The New Chubby Unicorn for 2016!? Do you have a Chubby Unicorn?

    Has anyone heard anything, got pictures, about the 2016 updated Chubby Unicorn rumored to be released this summer?

    Im looking to buy either a Chubby Unicorn or a flex one Bhangra, any ideas on the set up?

    Furthermore if you own a Chubby Unicorn, do you like it? Pros and Cons?

    Thanks

    Your post is a bit confusing to me as the Chubby Unicorn and the Bhangra are aimed at different skating disciplines, but whatever.
    Since the 2016 CU isn't released yet, all I can find is info from riders of the previous design.

    Here's a few links that you might find useful.
    Have fun with which ever board you decide to get.

    I own a Chubby Unicorn. I bought it cheap used without ever having seen one, and it turns out to not really be what I'd hoped for. I like pool skating, kick turning on the vert, and I thought it might be a pretty great, giant sized pool board. It would be too, if it didn't have such a dinky kicktail. The kick is short and not very steep, and it makes it really hard to muscle it around on the steep.

    If I just rode it downhill I'd probably like it a lot more. The construction really dampens vibration, it feels great at speed.
    If only it had a more manly kicktail! I don't think they really intend it to be kick turned, I think the kick is more or less a placeholder for your feet. I'm sure if you are skillful enough it can be ollied.

    My advice? Buy a used one cheap....
