Directional Camber: With float and quick turn initiation in mind, this bend offers full camber throughout the bindings for power and control with an early rise rocker zone focused only in the nose.
FSC Certified DragonFly 600g Splitboard Core: Use of end-grain woods in impact zones allows for swapping heavier woods for lighter weight species without sacrificing strength.
Squeezebox: Alternating thinner and thicker sections of core profile allows better energy transfer from the bindings to the tip and tail for improved board response.
Mystery Glass: Using a formula from the future, this is a result of a complex carbon layup that allows for manipulation of flex and feel while revolutionizing strength-to-weight.
