The ENDURO is a super, fun-to-ride, all-around splitboard. It was born from a simple concept - combine the two previous boards Classic and Ranger into one new model. Based on a super light Paulownia wood core, 4 layers of carbon and glass laminate deliver torsional stiffness whilst maintaining a fun flex. Geometry wise, our mid length nose follows a reverse radius enhancing the rail to rail ability especially in hard pack conditions. The sidecut radius choosen for this board enables it to be fun and easy to ride even at lower speeds, this radius has been moved back slightly towards tail in order to deliver more precise control over the board. The Enduro has an early rising nose with slight rocker translating into great and easy to control float in powder with precision control on the hardpack. It’s longer tail makes for comfy switch stance riding and more controlled landings whilst bombing drops. We’ve also shifted the camber forwards under the front foot to better balance the ride and control whilst wearing heavily loaded back-packs. The profile of the Enduro is relatively close to that of a twin tip design but still softer on the nose down to the rocker. Making a board that’s super stable at high speed, whilst maintaining a rockered nose for that all-around directional feeling was the goal. Completely new for this season is Enduro in size 168.
The RANGER is the ultimate tool characterised by an extended effective edge. A very long reverse radius in the nose when combined with a large sidecut radius guarantees precise control over the board at all times. Our long nose adds to the lateral “surf” profile and delivers the ultimate “floatibility” in the soft pow whilst at the same time the short tail guarantees swift direction changes and fast-swing for tight, tree funriding. Our unique X-construction composed from 4 layers of Carbon and glass and a full paulownia core balances the torsional properties well yet maintains an optional flex pattern across the exceedingly light deck. Overall the stiffness of the board remains similar to the previous models however a slightly softer tail improves POP immensley. Combine everything and the new RANGER delivers plenty of stability for landing drops and ollie bombing.
CARVER is “ride everyday” type of board. Perfect option for shred on the slopes in the resort, tight trees bombing or open terrain cruising. It’s geometry is characterized by middle size sidecut radius and mellow rocker on the nose. Camber under front foot deliver precise control over the board even in high speeds. Long nose with the mellow camber guarantee easy slide in the soft pow while middle length of the tail deliver easy swift and swing when riding tight trees. It also provide enough support for landing of the drops and bombing ollies or when riding switch. Carver board is well balanced with almost twin core, when I use combination of Paulownia and Poplar wood. This composition is lightweight and durable. Triaxial fiber-glass guarantee perfect torsional stiffness and vivid pop. For radical carving lovers I also manufacture Carver in carbon version, construction adapted from Drifter board. To handle this version of Carver I personally recommend to start with the squats well before the winter season begin. -Ota Tyl-
SAFARI is a new school snow surf board. It does not really matter if there is powder, groomed or corn snow. What really matter is to have that fun. This board is based on low camber profile in order to be able to surf around with the additional control of the board. Deep powder and steep tree runs are Safari’s natural habitat. But ask yourself how many of these perfect runs in face-blowing conditions we get throughout the season? That is why it’s important to be quick in picking that cut backs on the sides of the slopes, swift the turn into the forest and get back on the groomed slope by sending off that 180 to switch slide. You know? Twin tip core allow to convert this surf board into skate tool every time you demand it. Important is to adapt your riding to actual conditions and get out there every time you have a chance to shred. Safari is based on small sidecut radius in order to be quick in turns between weekend wariors even in low speed and to be able to cut those carving turns even on low hillsides. Waist width is rich. It will allow you to prove all the physical laws with the freedom of movement. No need to worry about cut offs on tips and toes! Those deep pow days will be glorious thanks to safari’s floatability gained by it’s surface magnitude. The inserts are positioned in the center of the board providing good balance on the grooms. Thnaks to longer nose and short tail you get enough back stance for deep pow runs. If you are dreaming or better heading to ride on Hokkaido you still have the option to move optimal stance even backwards. Talking about construction I used special custom-made triaxial fiber glass placed in 45 degrees in order to get the additional torsional stiffness you will appreciate on slope without influencing overall stiffness that you enjoy in deep pow. Give Safari a try! You will not regret. All of my boards can be more or less versatile but non of them can replace this unique snow surf skate toy! -Ota Tyl-
The DRIFTER is our ultimate carving tool characterized by long effective edges with generous rocker through the nose. Featuring our top construction of carbon and triax glass guarantees fantastic torsional stiffness. The Drifter finds edge grip even on bullet proof icy slopes. Thanks to it’s nose rocker it will float through the powder with no chance of catching. The Drifter shares the same outline as our Edge splitbard but features a different geometry and core profile which is composed of a combination of Paulownia and Poplar woods. This innovative mix guarantees light weight, long life performance and lightening fast reaction.
