The women's Hovercraft is not a snowboard. It’s a powder riding phenomenon that goes beyond mere board design. The Hovercraft packs the entire float you’ll ever need in a trim explosive package. Hovercrafting is pure bliss - you can float, air it out and run it out all on the same nimble rocket that makes effortless turns.
Blower, crud or crust are no match for the Hovercraft as it floats through it all without sacrificing manoeuvrability in mixed conditions. Perfect for Pow slashing, crud busting and slaloming trees.
The Hovercraft has a directional shape with a Speed Channel tail which increases speed and float. In deep snow the blunted nose makes sure less snow comes over the sides of your nose than it would with a regular shape. This means you get the benefits of a longer traditional nose, without the extra weight. Wrap Tip construction is a wood core till the tip and ABS sidewalls completely wrapped around the tip for increased response and durability. A mellow magne-traction along the edges, shaped like a serrated knife, will improve your edge grip by adding multiple contact points.
The directional rocker profile has camber under foot with a larger rocker area in the nose than in the tail. The float of the rockered nose improves manoeuvrability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. The slight rockered tail maintains power and stability but helps keep the tail catch-free when initiating turns and landing switch. With 3D 1° bevel the last several centimeters of the solid Hovercraft tail edges are beveled up one degree for even more edge manoeuvrability and loosened up tail.
A medium-stiff flex will ensure precise response and a lively feel.
Bamboo wood topsheet dampens your ride and offers chatter-free performance. The natural material also eliminates some plastic and lacquer which improves board sustainability. Carbon stringers add torsional stiffness for improved response and increased pop. These carbon layers keep the flex profile dimensionally stable for a consistent ride for the lifetime of the board.
