Pick Your Line

The 016 Pick Your Line has actually taken a while to develop. The release of UnderBite two years ago opened up a Pandora’s box of ideas, each one better suited for specific type of terrain or approaches. This eventually led to the PYL.

The Tapered UnderBite is unlike any outline ever used on a snowboard. The board blends into turns effortlessly, has the directional drive and float you’d expect from a tapered board, but it holds an edge and rockets out of turns like nothing else.

To power this incredible chassis we dropped the Carbon PowerDrive core. Custom milled channels in the core are fitted with Bamboo rods wrapped in carbon, creating inner core tension that is perfectly matched to the sidecut of each length. The new Carbon PowerDrive core amplifies rider input into powerful rail-to-rail transitions and explosive turns.

OUTLINE

Tapered UnderBite:

Similar looking to "wings" or bumps on a surfboard, it functions a little different on snow. Each side the board’s effective edge is segmented into 3 distinct parts. Beginning at the nose, the sidecut is approx. 8 meters. At the front binding area, the edge steps inward by 2mm, the sidecut changes to approx. 7 meters and continues with that radius until the rear insert pack. Then, the edge steps in again 2mm and the sidecut tightens to approx. 6 meters. Traditional “tapered boards” take the full sidecut and pull the tail inward, which is away from the arc of your turn – this is why they tend to wash out under hard carving. The Tapered UnderBite corrects this by 1, keeping the sidecut parallel to it’s corresponding one on the other side of the board and 2, increasing the sidecut depth as you move towards the tail creating a corrective “hook” to the taper. The board blends into turns effortlessly, has the directional drive and float you’d expect from a tapered board, but it holds an edge and rockets out of turns like nothing else.
