FEATURES

ABC Wrapper

More pop, less plastic! ABC Wrapper is a patented process using structural bamboo veneers to reduce fiberglass and resin content in each board by 40%. Traditional ABS sidewalls get the axe — replaced instead by waterproof Bamboo rods.

Powder Camber

Camber bewteen feet for carving and percision, and huge rocker on nose for floatation in very deep powder

Tapered directional

Tail width is slightly tapered (2-20mm). This loosens up turning initiation and improves floatation in deeper snow without sacrificing edge hold on hardpack.
