New Pro-Style features modified off the classic ripstik design. Get your grind on with a spinning aluminum torsion bar. Kick flip higher with new lighter weight design. Carve downhill faster with ABEC-5 bearings. Land smoother with new riser pads.
Best described as a cross between a skateboard and a snowboard, the Ripstik caster board is distinguished by its pivoting deck and 360-degree inclined caster trucks, which offers a snowboard-like carving ability. The RipStik DLX features an aluminum torsion bar for wicked grinds and carbon fiber deck graphics. Like the original Ripstik, the DLX moves you forward with a simple weight transfer that lets you turn or accelerate without pushing--just like when you're carving down the slopes.
The aluminum torsion bar in the center is ready for extreme grinding.

- Riser pads
- Aluminum torsion bar

Would NOT recommend for too young (6 yr?) or too old (break bones when you fall) or someone who is not in really good shape. I have seen some kids try it and get very frustrated with the task of combining so many motions at once.
WOULD recommend for skate boarder, inline skater or other activity like that.
So far he LOVES it! I'm not sure why they stopped making it. It is much better quality than the standard Razor rip stick he had previously. He says it is a much smoother, easier ride.
Both are still about the same weight, the DLX version being SLIGHTLY lighter and thinner -- although you'll be hard-pressed to tell the difference.
The all-black version looks a lot slicker, less like a toy and more like a wicked, futuristic skateboard.
On Amazon there is a "Deluxe" DLX version, however, in my research I have found no difference between this version and the Regular DLX version, or the "Toys 'R' Us" DLX Version -- they're all the same.
The Ripster: The Ripstik Ripster versions are a different riding experience altogether because they take a different set of muscles to operate. Where the larger Ripstik version uses more hips, the smaller version uses more of your ankles and knees. The tighter turning radius of the smaller Ripster makes it more maneuverable in tight spaces (like around the house or garage, basement, etc.) but the larger version is better for cruising on the roads and sidewalks, and the cost of maneuverability. I'm not sure the difference between the Ripstik Ripster and the RR DLX, but there's a $30 difference, so it's probably lighter and tighter like the regular DLX.
Back to the DLX: The only con I can think of is that Razor made a huge improvement with the torsion bar in this version, and it's a shame that they charge you more for such a cheap-costing change that should be in the Regular version as well. Apparently they shaved off a little weight by using aluminum instead of steel but the difference is minimal. The other problem with this product is that it is really hard to find information about the differences in riding experiences without riding them (so far I'm the only one I know with such a review).
If you're looking to get a Ripstik (and I highly recommend you do -- they're really fun to ride), I would say save up an extra $30 and get the easier-to-control DLX version. You'll ride this thing for hours at a time, and the last thing you want is for your ankles to be really sore.
Good luck, and be careful around cars!
