Riding powder is like hiking into a backcountry camping trip. Once you’re past the trailhead, if you have the right gear there’s nothing better. If you have the wrong gear, there’s nothing worse. The Navigator is your fire starter; it is your compass that never fails. It is essential to the experience. Featuring a Parabolic sidecut that carves hard and flows into a sinking tapered tail, the wide-frame rockered nose naturally floats above deep snow and transforms tiring powder days into emotionally fulfilling epic level experiences. For 2019, this powder annihilating series has been further upgraded and supercharged with a new Quantum Drive™ high-speed sintered base.

Essentially it is the opposite of traditional camber. There is a continuous concave or “rocker” shape between the tip and tail contact points. Reverse camber boards were traditionally recommended for beginners because it makes turn initiation easier and you are less likely to catch an edge. However, it also provides a looser feel which may not be the easiest for the beginner to control.
The continuous rocker profile has a very playful feel, is great for butters and floats well in powder.
The trade off is that there is less pop, they feel loose (which is only a bad thing if you don’t want a loose feeling board), doesn’t hold an edge as well as other profiles, and it is more difficult to stomp landings from big air.
Directional boards typically have a longer, pointier nose, with a stance set back towards the tail. This makes them better suited to riding forwards. These boards will carve well on the piste and plough easily through powder – since the short tail naturally sinks while the large nose floats over the snow.
Powder-specific models will often deploy a so-called ‘swallow tail’ to accentuate the effect.
