It is a type of Ripstik that costs more but has a feature that allows you to grind on rails and metalic objects with it. The only difference is that it has a metal tube on the connecting piece between the two parts of the Ripstik. For further information go to or go to the official Ripstik website. HOPE THIS HELPS =]this is suggested if you are to grind. but when i got mine they said that when going off a curb or a rough surface you will feel the shock more because there is no rubber to absorb it. its about 130$ Canadian and on sale right now in America for 100$ this is hard to larn at first but after a few hours i really got the hnag of it. its really frusttrating but fun once u learn. it takes a few mintes really to start moving but few hours to learn how to get higher speed and balance

Is the Ripstick air better than the Ripstick G?

No, with the ripstik Air, you cant move the back of the board like the Ripstik G, and the Ripstik G has faster bearings and easier to do tricks and grind. If you buying a Ripstik, Get the G.source? - Waveboarder/Ripstiker for 1 1/2 years. and get some abec 9 bearings to go faster.The ripstik Air, however, is much lighter and easier for doing ollies and kickflips. I have seen some videos with people doing grinds on the ripstik Air, but it depends what you are using if for.

Is there a Ripstik G?

You can change its color. You do this by unscrewing the 4 screws on the nose platform on the back and the 3 screws on the tail platform on the back. Then you can pry off the colored part and lay them on some newspapers and spray paint them. You can also make a Ripstik a Ripstik G by unscrewing one of the screws that rise above the rest, then take off that whole platform. Then you can slide off the rubber cover!

Is the Ripstik better than a skateboard?

To me, yes the ripstik is soooo much more fun. I love how it rides. It is so much more smooth than a skateboard. I've done both to be honest. i used to skateboard a lot and thought it wuz great until i learned how to ripstik. Then i knew i had to get one. so i got my my first ripstik and i got it in the sweet color blue. i ride it like everyday now and all of my friends have a ripstik too. Me and my friend have made up soo many beast tricks on our ripstiks. not to make fun of the skateboard or anything, its just my opinion.
