Tapered UnderBite delivers the directional drive and float of a tapered board without
compromising edge hold or the ability to power out of turns that plaques most tapered boards. The PYL does all this in a more traditional width/length board. The Weightless core, natural dampening and snap provided by the Ash Veneer brings a refined, high-performance feel to this innovative, award-winning design.
Riders: DCP, FWT riders
Artist : Alun Edwards @aloony72
Weightless Core: The weightless core strikes a critical balance between lightweight and strength. Using a lower density species of Poplar in areas that are not as structural and Paulownia in the areas that are, we’re able to shave precious weight off our beloved 420 and now the 20/20. This helps a board not only float, but “feel” floaty.
Sintered True Base: Just like it says. Pellets or course powder are pressed until they
form a solid. There are several suppliers for our entire industry and each have different codes for them depending on the colour and transparency. These codes can make it seem like you’re getting many different kinds and grades of sintered but they’re all pretty much the same as far as you and I will ever tell. True Sintered is harder and more expensive than extruded and it can be faster for those that ride aggressively fast. But to do that, it needs to be waxed often and prepared for local conditions.
Forever Flex: Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilize the flex and rocker profile of a board for it’s lifetime. Our boards now finish the first stages of production slightly overbuilt and then we “break them in” using specialized machinery that mimics extreme riding use. By flexing the fresh board fibers and epoxy at the factory the materials settle in to their final arrangement within the board layup much the same as if you rode the board for 20 days. This process helps us narrow our production tolerances so the board you buy has a more accurate specified flex and rocker profile that will change less.
Triax Fiberglass + Ash Veneer Topsheet: Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow conditions.
Tapered UnderBite Outline: More floatation and total edge control. Similar looking to “wings” or channels on a surfboard, it functions a little different on snow. Each side of the board’s effective edge is segmented into 3 distinct parts that step horizontally inward rather than tapering. Traditional “tapered boards” take the full
sidecut and pull the tail inward, which is away from the arc of your turn – this
is why they tend to wash out under hard carving. Tapered UnderBite corrects this by increasing the sidecut depth as you move towards the tail creating a corrective “hook”
to the taper. The board blends into turns effortlessly, and has the directional drive
and float you’d expect from a tapered board.
Wide: A wider waist width for those with larger footprints. Recommended for boot sizes 11.5+
Camber underfoot with a bit of rocker lift in the nose gives you the ultimate best of both worlds for a pow ready board that holds up in any condition.
This board bend has entry rocker that adds lift to the nose while a camber section under both feet maintains momentum and stability through deep-driving turns and variable conditions. This bend caters to those who like the attributes of traditional camber but want something that will get up to speed and float easier in pow.
A smooth, reliable ride.
Directional shapes generally feature a longer, softer nose and a shorter, stiffer tail. These shapes thrive in an all-mountain environment, as they possess the ability to ride more smoothly than their twin-tip counterparts and behave more reliably in variable snow conditions, anywhere from choppy snow to deeper powder. More twin-looking directional shapes where the difference between nose and tail appear minimal will perform best as crossover freestyle snowboards for those looking to still access the park, while more exaggerated differences will excel for additional float in deep powder.
