The Micro Mini is the perfect board for kids getting their first experiences in the snowboarding game. It features a unique convex shape with edges that are raised off the snow, so smaller riders (and their parents) won’t have to worry about catching an edge—keeping kids stoked and progressing for years to come. For 2019 the Micro Mini has been upgraded with a new XXX[TRUDED]™ base, while the custom MICRO-GLASS kid's construction on the Micro Mini makes for a uniquely lightweight board with a flex relative to small rider weights. This important configuration detail allows for the most ideal turning—and learning—experiences.
- POPLAR CORE™: Providing consistent, easy, predictable flex while maintaining strength and forgivenes.
- MICRO-GLASS + MAGIC BEAN™ RESIN: Biaxial top with proprietary bottom laminate = proper flex for short lengths and smaller riders. Impregnated with plant based MAGIC BEAN™ RESIN.
- NEW! XXX[TRUDED]™ BASE: Extruded under high pressure resulting in a super hard, and extremely durable surface. This is no ordinary extruded base.
- PAM16000™ Topsheet
- Sublimation Base
- 360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges
- Full ABS1000 Sidewalls
- Stainless Steel 4 x 4 Inserts
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.
A true twin shape is completely symmetrical. If you cut a true twin in half exactly down the middle you would end up with two identical pieces of board.
This means that the nose and the tail are the same length and the same width and the bindings are centred on the board – i.e. they are equal distances from the centre of the board and the front binding is the same distance from the nose as the back binding is from the tail.
Of course, as you can adjust the width of the position of the bindings you could create a setback stance if you were so inclined but this would be unusual on a true twin given its purpose and might be a strange feel depending on the camber profile (i.e. one foot could end up being over camber and the other over rocker which would probably feel odd).
In addition to this a true twin has exactly the same flex in the nose and tail.
