Escape the crowds and explore into backcountry zones, whether your local spots are East Coast river beds or the open bowls and faces of Europe and western North America. The Powder Room lays down surfability and power through the combination of our Powder S camber and two tubes of carbon in the tail. After the skin up, drop in with the confidence of float in the nose and the power of a cambered tail.
- Powder S
Design: positive camber from the tail, through the mid-body and halfway through the nose. In the front part of the nose we integrate rocker.
Defining feel: found in our split boards, this camber is designed for both float and slash. When we skin up for powder we want to glide effortlessly through it, whether it is dense or light. And we also want to explode massive face shots when we find deep pockets. The rocker in the nose gives the float we want; the positive camber in the middle and tail gives the power we need.
For those all-mountain and powder riders with a strong freeride perspective, our directional shapes have noses that are longer than tails and flex patterns with more stiffness in the tail. For some of these shapes, we also incorporate taper in the tail so that the nose is wider than the tail. Many times, we match up some of our directional cambers like free-the-ride or powder cambers with these directional shapes. There is nothing twin about the shape of flex of these designs.
- Airpop core matrix
Starting with the responsive “pop” of poplar laminates, we integrate five zones of low-density, ultra light wood to reduce weight. Then we add air channels to make it even lighter.
- Hotrod technology
Every board needs added pop
We mill channels in the cores of nearly every board we make and integrate thin carbon, glass and bamboo rods for more pop and more power. As with turborod technology, we place hotrods in the boards to deliver power to specific areas.
- Sinterspeed base
Speed matters, whether you want to glide smoothly through powder or whether you want to make sure you clear the knuckle. For our higher end boards, this is the base that ensures you get to the line first and you land in the sweet spot.
- 45/90 hybrid laminate
New for this year in the national and marshall, this laminate drives an all-mountain freestyle feel by combining the high response of 45 degree fibers with the 90 degree fibers that let riders feel and finesse the terrain.
