Generic Snowboard Sizing Chart

A good rule for snowboard sizing is about chin height. A little longer for stronger or heavier than your height riders. A little shorter for beginners or lighter than your height riders. Also keep in mind if you have very small feet for your height you will probably need a shorter and thus narrower board and if you have big feet for your height you may need a longer and thus wider board for your height.

Description

Details

ABS Sidewall: ABS provides better edge hold than other materials and construction types. It will also withstand impacts with rocks and terrain features (rails, boxes, your friend) more effectively when compared to cap style construction.

Fiberglass Laminate: In order to make the core stiffer and poppier without adding weight by using metal layers or denser wood, these skis have been given an fiberglass laminate. Believe it or not, even glass fibres have a degree of elasticity. Using pre-stretched fibres in our laminates means you can be sure that your shred will never feel lifeless or lack pop throughout its life.

The purists won't ride anything else, why would they? Camber is synonymous with powerful ollie pop, snap out of carves and superior edge hold. On the flip side, riding camber requires concentration to avoid nasty edge catches, and strong legs and setback stances in powder.

HEXO2 Core Inserts: HEXO2 core replaces specific areas of weightier wood at the tips with featherlight recycled paper honeycomb, practically eliminating swing weight making for a more nimble and quick turning ski.

Wood Core Construction: This board sports a wood core, which helps dampen a bumpy a ride, giving the board a smoother ride. The wood core also helps maintain the camber of the board so it stays springy and lively.
