Easy access, full resort freestyle
From park laps to groomed speed runs, cat-track hits and mid-mountain powder stashes. We’ve taken our Directional Volume Twin design that once graced the Ghost and Standard, and brought it into reach of the masses where it belongs. Technically, it’s still a twin outline because the nose and tail lengths are identical and it’s not tapered. But the nose on the Directional Volume Twin has 15% more surface volume than the tail allowing for better floatation when the going gets deep.

Direction Volume Twin
As the lines between freeride and freestyle continue to erase, we had to address the needs of those committed to riding twins but finding themselves in more pow. Nose and tail volume is hard to notice in hardpack unless you’re nose/tail pressing, but in pow it affects floatation and you can feel it. This led to the simple idea of the Directional Volume Twin. Symmetrical flex, centered stance, identical wide points of the board (therefore, NOT tapered), and identical shovel lengths but with a slightly lower volume tail.
Our baseline core for tip to tail woodcore snowboard construction. Strikes a predictable balance between durability, consistent flex and light weight.
Just like it says. This material is formed by extrusion. It’s softer than our other two bases, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. At the speeds many of us ride, this material is actually quicker (gets up to speed faster) than sintered when waxed correctly. You may have your own proof of this when you’re smoking by someone with a dried out “high-end” base. It also retains wax better because it’s more porous and is easy to fix with a P-Tex stick if you get scratches in it.
