Korua Shapes Cafe Racer Snowboard


Boardworks Breakdown:


Manufacturer Description: 


The Café Racer is a classic softboot carving shape, ideal for tight turns when tearing up groomers at your local resort. It’s a great board for learning how to carve, but can also handle the skills and turns of an experienced rider. Although its main focus is on carving, the Café Racer can easily be taken off-piste for some deep powder turns. If getting super low on your turns is your priority, this is the shape for you!





The tail shape of the Café Racer offers solid torsional stiffness and stability out the back, ideal for carving on groomers. The full camber profile combined with a turn-specific sidecut provides excellent grip from tip to tail, making this board ride like a train on tracks.

POWDER: 8/10

    This chart shows the range in what each size can handle. It is never our intention to categorize riders and their preferences. Our philosophy of snowboarding is to try new shapes, lengths, widths, and to keep an open mind for alternative riding experiences; however, we do have some limits to consider so that your board will work as it was designed to.

    Your weight plays a major role in how the board will flex, and your shoe size will affect toe and heel drag when turning. The below size chart is for reference only, as our recommendations may vary depending on your stance and riding ability.

    Camber Profile

    The Café Racer features a FULL CAMBER profile, which provides extra stability and maximum grip, as the full length of your edge lies in the snow, while still providing float and speed in soft snow due to a smooth transition into the nose area. We recommend riding this board with steeper positive binding angles and a slightly narrower stance to let the board flex more naturally under your feet.



    Biaxial fiberglass, UV laquer topsheet, poplar light wood core, and a high-end perlatec base is the tried-and-tested combination of our durable materials we use to enable that perfect turn.
