Terrain: Pow

Response: Medium


A newly designed bamboo Rocket Fish HP combined with a set of an innovative piece of equipment

"Powder Plates", to create a powder-surfing craft that will enhance your bindingless riding experience to the next dimension.

Gentemstick has re-designed the Rocket Fish High Performance with an all bamboo + fiberglass construction to give it a supple yet strong-enough flex to accommodate the speed and control needed when powsurfing. No wood-core, no p-tex, no steel edges. Just bamboo and fiberglass.

The most innovative part of this new equipment is the presence of the Powder Plates, originally conceived, designed and developed by their Finnish friend, Sami Wirkkala. The combination of those Plates with the newly designed board allows precise control without the need of bindings. The concave of the Powder Plates gives enough leverage to maneuver while not obstructing the overall flex of the board.

Kit Includes: Powderstick (Rocket Fish HP + Powder Plates + Leash + Screws)


Profile:

Accel Camber

The idea of traditional camber is to apply the same amount of pressure onto the entire edge of a board to attain smoother, more stable carving and turning.

The camber arches from the center of the board all the way to 3 cm inside of the widest point of a board, both the nose and the tail. To turn, this camber has to be stepped on and the bottom pressed against the surface. This type of camber is effective at a resort, compacted slope or on a flat face. But it has lots of demerit on deep powder, fresh snow, or terrains with three-dimensional features. It is arched against the direction of the board, and the board could get hooked on the snow easily, making the turn less agile.

The GENTEMSTICK’s radical Accel camber eliminates hooking and prevents nosedives in deep powder or fresh snow, while maintaining a natural floatation. It is designed and shaped to perform its best when the rider stands neutrally on top of a board. It is made flat from the widest point of the nose side to about the front foot. The arch begins there and reaches the highest around the back foot, and it ends at the widest point of the tail side. When a rider stands on the board, the arch gets pushed and the area ahead of the front foot barely touches the snow.

This is the position that maximizes the performance of the board, and also the same position that reaches maximum velocity in ski races and other speed competitions. Accel camber has an arch from point A to point B. The board becomes flat as the back foot pressures the board. It rises slightly from the point C to the nose, which effectively reduces snow resistance. There are boards with similar camber designs released from major manufacturers these days. It is important to remember that the nose rocker design becomes very important with this kind of camber system, which has the peak of its arch placed further behind the center of a board. The GENTEMSTICK Accel camber boards are distinctly designed, especially from the point where the camber ends to the widest point of the nose. The key is to reduce resistance.


Shape:

Directional Tapered

Directional tapered boards excel in a pure mountain environment. The tail sinks in pow for better float and quicker turns.

A directional shape with a longer, softer nose and a shorter, stiffer tail get taken to the next level with a tapering design—which sees a wider nose tapering into a narrower tail. The advantages are two-fold: this shape not only sees mega-enhanced floatation with a surfy feel in deep powder, it also creates a faster turning snowboard which is noticeably more nimble and great for tree riding.


Flex:

5 (Scale 1-10)

Versatility at its finest. From the park to the peak and anywhere in between.


Base:

Sintered

High-end base material that is harder, more durable, and faster than extruded bases.
