Delivers in all conditions.
The Hello was built in response to a growing demand for a true resort board. Using the same outline as the Hel YES., this new model shares the edge hold and carving ability of UnderBite to deliver performance on the groomers, side hits and in the park. The direc- tional twin shape allows it to float shamelessly through powder and chatter, making it a true quiver killer. Mark Kowalchuk designed this board : “ The hello this year is inspired by contemporary abstract art. The idea was that it would be like mixed media of cut paper and paint collage. There are some inspirations of de- sert shapes and California vibes throughout. ”
Better edge hold and easier turns
Redistributing rider weight and input power, UnderBite enhances turning ease and edge hold. By having the edge pulled back a couple of millimeters at the binding area acts like a gaz pedal or a segregated knife, enhancing the cutting power of the edge. While you are turning on hard packed snow you need an insertion point to ease the edge in an then you need the edge to drive thus we have only a couple inlays because once you’ve engaged your edge you are driving your turn. UnderBite allows you to have that extra leverage to apply power to the edge where you want to. From nose to tail you have a better edge control and a smoother drive.
Our baseline core for tip to tail woodcore snowboard construction. Strikes a predictable balance between durability, consistent flex and light weight.
This is the term we use and is the grey zone many companies play in. We call it Sintered Spec because it’s hardness and chemical properties are very close to true sintered and it’s on-snow performance is also very close to true sintered - but it’s formed using the extrusion process. How? – Well the raw material is actually pre-consumer recycled (meaning it never left the factory) sintered base material. So while the heating and extrusion process has softened it slightly, it’s still much harder than true Extruded.
