Technology

Rock Out Camber

Flat between your bindings for stability, Camber near the feet for response and a rocker on the tip/tail for pressability.


Quadralizer

An explosive combination of Equalizer and Quadratic allows high speed carving as well as superior edge control in tight spots.



ABC Wrapper

More pop, less plastic! ABC Wrapper is a patented process using structural wood veneers to reduce fiberglass and resin content in each board by 40%.



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.



BA MD fiberglass

Medium density European-made fiberglass layers guarantee a consistent quality level, for light and lively boards.



Popster

The core is strategically milled inside of the insert packs, allowing the board to flex more naturally underfoot and transfer energy into the nose and tail for added pop.



Sintered EG

Engineered for fast glide speed and maximum wax retention in all conditions. Gallium strengthens impact resistance, while the Electra finish enhances speed.



Ghost Green Core

Ghost Green Core components have been selected and designed to optimize pop and reduce weight while utilizing sustainable attributes of a super light wood.



FSC certified woodcore

FSC certified wood comes from forests that meet the highest environmental and social standards, supporting sustainable forest management.



Fine stone finish

Our fine stone finish is particularly efficient on our Sintered EG base, speed up in powder or softer snow conditions.



Natural wax

A paraffin-free wax compound made from natural ingredients. A non-pollutant compound held to the highest standards of glide speed.



All mountain EB

All mountain ready, right out of the wrapper. Equipped with a 1-degree bevel in the nose and tail and a 2-degree bevel between the feet for superior edge hold and no hang ups.



Bamboo + Cork Rails

The liveliness of eco friendly bamboo mixed with cork composite, for the best direct feel and dampening ride in the industry.
