Travis pushes the envelope in life, on snow, and with his boards. He pushed our experiMENTAL division to come up with a lightweight low spin weight construction that would still ride with smooth power and stability. FP spin slim tips, Balsa and Paulownia are perfectly designed for long ascents & technical climbing. Easy to use, high tension Karakorum Ultra Clips create an amazing positive ride down. This board is ready for whatever line you and Travis are.

Uhmw Tip/Tail Impact Deflection
A shorter, more aggressive banana rocker combined with cambers that sit more underfoot. Extra solid tip and tail pressure for power, pop, precision and end-to-end stability combined with a medium amount of pressure between your feet for carving, edge hold on ice and float in pow.
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.
