TECHNOLOGY

 

A-SERIES ALUMINUM CHASSIS


The A-Series Chassis provides the reactive flex and power transfer of aluminum underfoot. The extruded aluminum heel-cup provides the ultimate toe-heel response. The A-Series Chassis was designed to be less rigid than previous designs allowing the aluminum to flex more under the rider’s weight allowing for a much more reactive ride. Because the Chassis is 100% aluminum, it is narrower than nylon or plastic chassis allowing the board to flex more freely from tip to tail.


SLIMEBACK™ HIGHBACK


Highbacks utilize urethane similar to our Slimewalls™ technology. The Slimeback™ material absorbs shock and damps vibrations to help smooth the ride while providing fluid support.


TWO-PIECE STRAP ANKLE STRAP 


Designed to provide comfort and response. The two-piece strap utilizes two different types of plastic, one more rigid strap to provide the necessary response and another urethane piece that assures the strap is comfortable and stays in place over your boot. There is no additional padding to bunch up and create hotspots on your boot.


MINIMALIST TOE STRAP:

Designed to offer maximum performance and durability with minimum weight and distraction


LINKAGE RATCHET


Designed to improve ladder durability and eliminate ratchet wag, resulting in a smoother user experience with the same hold you expect.


CANTED FOOTBED


An ultra-light footbed that uses subtle angles to align the ankles and knees to a more natural and comfortable position. The angle also gives leverage to press the board for huge pop, without affecting your preferred stance width.


A-SERIES DIE-CUT BASEPAD

A minimalist EVA pad that sits under the binding to damp out vibrations.


PLASTIC DISC


The plastic disc offers more lateral flex than aluminum for the rider that is focused on comfort and flex over hard-charging performance
