YES.It's a decimeter Squared:
DM²: Get to know your numbers.
Surface area matters more than length. Ever since designing the 420 and providing that width can provide the stability and floatation traditionnaly associeted with length, we've been on a treadmil of wordy explanations. Now we quantify it. Similar in practice to the way surfboards use volume as a key metric in board selection, surface area (measured in square decimeters: DM²), will change the way you select a board. Matching your weight and ability to your dm² will better guide you in this wonderful world of electic shapes and sites available to the modern shred.
Technology Explained :Midbite PowderHull:
Adding even more float by giving the PowderHull or Coreless boards a MidBite radius gives that extra bite to the board when riding hardpack and allows for tighter turns on the groomers. Once in powder you are virtually unsinkable with the comination of the Hull and MidBite.Radial Radius:
When basics are good, A radial edge is the classic snowboard, where you have the radius that draws a single circle. It's the most basic way to turn, it will allow you to carve but your are limited in the variations of turns you can make.Directional Weird:
This is all about surface area displacement to create float and stability. The shorter length and bigger surface area provides a tighter radius that facilitates tight forest powder runs.Directional Volume Twin:
Hiding surface area to enhance floatation. By pulling the radius of the nose up towards the tip we add some dm2 int the area that impacts floatation and makes for a bigger nose. This neithert influences the radius nor the waist width and therefore you have a perfomance twin that has the hidden surface area of a powder board. The best of both worlds.Clark:
You are the master of the technology here. Use your creative mind to build the perfect board. Make sure you seal the wood with a varnish after you've taken the jigsaw to it. This board has all the radii you want to have.
Technology Explained :Camrock :
The response of camber with floatability of rocker. By combining camber and rocker you allow the board to be both responsive and floaty. The camber is between your feet as a spring keeping your contact points on the ground as you go in and out of turns allowing you to keep that edge hold longer. Once compressed the camber will accentuate the rocker and lift the nose out more allowing it to float.Camber :
Camber is the base of snowboarding: you need to have an edge hold enough to drive in and out of turns, the Camber acts as a shock absorber on cars they push the wheels into the road to enhance grip. The camber does exactly that to the edge. Allowing you to drive your turns longer and release later.Blender Rocker:
Our blended rocker is a mix of float board profile and a rocker which gives you the forgiveness you want from a kids board, the flat section keeps the board form being too aggressive and the rocker segment avoids the nose catching an edge. This gives the board a lot of forgiveness and allows your kid to learn the easy way - minimizing the scorpions.Blended Camrock:
We added some rocker on directional boards making the camrock profile more directional. With a higher rocker on the nose of the board, it drives the nose up as you ride powder and with the camber set back a little you have a longer rocker nose making it float like crazy.Flatrock:
This is to make kid's boards versatile and forgiving, basically the board will allow you to do anything but will not be aggressive nor will it be challenging to the ride. It's truly a profile meant to make snowboarding easy to learn.
