This year’s Greats theme is a collection of visual elements that made up some of our favorite UnInc graphics. The brief but monumental years that DCP, JP, Romain, Jeffy and Gigi had creative freedom with the project are curated here in a single celebratory homage.
On the technical end, the Greats is graced with the original asym-twin outline. Tighter heel sidecut than toe rebalances and enhances the body’s natural strengths. And this year we’ve gone a step further by adding a carbon stringer on the heel-side of the board that effectively creates an asymmetrical flex. The additional weight and power applied to your heel edge is now matched without overpowering your toe edge.
Back in the day, asymmetrical boards meant you had to choose between a regular or goofy-stance board. Not only was that a nightmare for retailers, it didn’t suit anyone with a duck stance – which is everyone now. The Asym Twin applies a tighter, deeper heelside radial sidecut compared to the toe. In effect, balancing out the difference in a body’s natural tendency that we get with directional allowing you to ride switch better than you ever have.
Regular or goofy - it’s still a true twin. Just flip it around.
Creating a lighter, more responsive core than the Full Poplar. The Poplar + Bamboo uses the same durable core, lightens it up by replacing 30% of the Poplar with Paulownia and then inserts two bamboo stringers down the full length for added pop and response.
Just like it says. Pellets or course powder is pressed until it forms a solid. There are several suppliers for our entire industry and they each have different codes for them, depending on the color and transparency. These codes can make it seem like you’re getting many different kinds and grades of sintered but they’re all pretty much the same as far as you and I will ever tell. True Sintered is harder and more expensive than extruded and it can be faster for those that ride aggressively fast. But to do that, it needs to be waxed and prepared for local conditions.
