YES.It's a decimeter squared:
DM²: Get to know your numbers.
Surface area matters more than length. Ever since designing the 420 and proving that width can provide the stability and floatation traditionally associated with length, we've been on a treadmill of wordy explanations. Now we quantify it. Similar to how surfboards use volume as a key metric in board selection, surface area will change the way snowboarders select a board. Surface area is measured in square decimeters: DM². Matching your weight and ability to your dm² will better guide you in this wonderful world of eclectic shapes and sizes available to the modern shredder.
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 combination of the PowderHull and MidBite.Radial Radius:
When basics are good, a radial edge is the classic snowboard sidecut, where the radius draws a single circle. It's the most basic way to turn, it will allow you to carve but you 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, increased surface area, and tighter turning radius are ideal for forested 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 into the area that impacts floatation, creating a bigger nose. This neither influences the turning radius nor the waist width and therefore creates a board that performs like a twin while having 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 the floatability of rocker. By combining camber and rocker you allow the board to be both responsive and floaty. Camber between the feet acts as a spring keeping the contact points on the ground throughout the turn for better edge hold. 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.Blended Rocker:
Our blended rocker is a mix of flat board profile and a rocker which gives you the forgiveness you want from a kids’ board, the flat section keeps the board from 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 kids’ boards versatile and forgiving. 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.
