The Kazu Kokubo Pro Snowboard is a serious freeride machine, designed to ride pillows, cliffs and gladed zones, just the way Kazu likes it. Made with a quality Core Ash Woodgrain Topsheet and bamboo power rods for rigidity and pop, the Kazu Pro also features a top of the line sintered base for cranking the dial to 11. With its directional shape and moderate waist widths, the Kazu is nimble, carves clean, and floats with style thanks to a long rockered nose.
Alpine V3 Profile – The Alpine V3 Profile features lower-body camber with a reverse cambered nose. This allows for maximum turning power while increasing float and landing stability. The camber runs deep into the tail on the KAZU PRO providing enhanced performance for this freestyle powder series. The Kazu Kokubo Pro uses traditional tip and tail arcs.
6.5 – (1 Soft – 10 Stiff)
Radical Taper – A sidecut engineered for deep powder but still versatile around the mountain. This narrower tail section naturally sinks in the powder while the wider nose section floats above the snow line. The result is less work and more fun as the board surfs on one smooth continuous arc.
FSC® Certified Panda Core™ – The PANDA CORE™ was built for a high performance return of energy in a lightweight and versatile core. From razor sharp turns on demand, to huge ollies, this core was engineered with all-terrain technical freestyle riding in mind. Comprised of the P2 Superlight™ Core and enhanced with inlaid Bamboo Power Rods, this high-density core is strong enough to meet the needs of the all-terrain customer while saving considerable weight.
Amplitex™ V-Tech Amplifier – Grid woven tech tape featuring the response of carbon with the dampness of flax.
Holysheet™ Fiberglass with Magic Bean Resin – Triax/ Biax Holysheet™ has higher glass to weight ratio than normal fiberglass for a more powerful and dynamic ride when impregnated with the new high performance plant based Magic Bean™ Resin.
Full ABS1000 Sidewalls
UltraDrive™ Base – Twice the molecular weight of SuperDrive™, this sintered ultra-high molecular weight, ultra-high density polyethylene is the Millenium Falcon of base materials. The force is strong with this one.
Titanal Base Inlay – Titanal is a high strength hardened aluminum wrought alloy with excellent compression strength to weight ratios. A perfect top core structural reinforcement, these 20mm Titanal struts resist longitudinal compression.
360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges
Core Ash Woodgrain Topsheet
Multitech™ Level 4 DeepSpace™ Metallic Silkscreen – Strategically layering ink on multiple levels from the top and the bottom, CAPiTA imbues their graphics with a sense of life through depth.
Made at the Mothership (100% Hydro Powered Facility) – The NH3 natural gas heating system has an ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and GWP (Global Warming Potential) of 0, with a COP (coefficient of performance) of 5. This means that for every 1 unit of energy consumed by the system, 5 units of energy for heating and cooling is achieved. It’s like making the effort to spin a 360, but landing a silky smooth 1800 instead. The Mothership is also designed to maximize the use of natural light during the day by having ample skylights and strategically placed interior cutaways throughout the entire facility — while energy efficient LED lighting acts as supplementary illumination where necessary.
