Tapered shape maximizes wheel clearance for deep carves and tight turns. Sidecuts reduce torsional stiffness between the feet for greater nuances in the turning radius. Mild concave provides edge-to-edge control, while the topmount and cambered platform provides energetic carving performance.
Lightweight, snowboard-inspired bamboo and fiberglass construction pair with a cambered profile for a lively and engaging ride.
LIGHT & DURABLE
Available in two sizes and four flex ratings to tailor the ride to your stance, weight, and style. Lower flex is ideal for heavier riders; higher flex is recommended for lighter riders or those looking for a more responsive board.
