Features

Triple Base Technology™ is awesome. The lifted sidebase areas at the widest points of the board make a lot of sense. The boards turn smoother and faster and it helps when you are not completely clean on your landings.

SideKick™ dramatically increases the sidebase uplift at the widest points of the nose and tail. This makes turn initiation even smoother, increases float in powder and handling of the board in rough terrain.

SuperTubes™ are hollow carbon core upgrades that are inserted into the core in 3 different configurations. The hollow carbon tubes greatly increase the woodcore’s pop and reduce weight.

Materials & Construction

Our three-way weave of fiberglass is light, strong and responsive. We use this to beef up the flex pattern.

Our 50-50 Swiss paulownia and poplar woods blend for optimal strength to weight properties.

Dual Super Tube. Hollow carbon core upgrades that are inserted into the core. The hollow carbon tubes greatly increase the woodcore’s pop and reduce weight.

The type and placement of fiberglass greatly influences a board’s flex and riding characteristics. Boards are built with a layer of fiberglass above and below the woodcore.

Our standard sintered base that’s tough and fast, and faster when waxed.

We use tried and trusted ABS sidewalls for most of the collection. For the best flex to strength ratio.

Awesome All-Mountain/Freeride Board

This is a great all-mountain / freeride board. It's not super stiff but stiffer than my first board. The 6/10 flex seems right. The board floats tremendously well in powder and rolls from edge to edge easily on the groomers. The directional setback is perfect for CO powder/soft days. It's not quite as good as my magnetraction board in hardpack/ice but then again, those conditions suck on any board. The 3BT took some getting used to but after two or three sessions it's natural now. Definitely requires committing more of the entirety of the edge as the board sort of rolls onto edge rather than engaging from the leading edge. But this also makes me focus on turning more with your knees/hips/weight rather than lazily pressuring my heels/toes like a straight-legged idiot. The 3BT helps the board plow pretty well through soft chop and chunder but I notice a little bit of nose rattle traversing bumpy hardpack. It's directional and I ride it as such but definitely can be ridden switch when needed. The board is gorgeous in person, understated and adult. You can't go wrong with this if you're looking for a great all-arounder/freeride board. 11.5 shoe 185lbs and 159W seems right.

Thunder!!!

This board is sick. I already rode it last year at a test event and it was magic. I used to ride Omni but now I am in love with Thunder it feels a bit less like a traditional freeride board more like an I dunno everything board. It floats just as good as my Omni but it jumps better and feels more responsive somehow.
