When Robin Van Gyn rides steep faces of Alaska, she rides them with her Smoothie. No wonder, Robin’s influences can be found in this board. Advanced female riders who want to surf powder will find what they are looking for in the Smoothie. The directional freeride shape is super floaty, the C2 profile provides the best board control in every situation, the Magne-Traction turns ice into powder and the Smoothie is produced environmentally friendly.
Powder, powder and more powder! The Roxy Smoothie feels most comfortable in the white room.
The nose of the directional shape is slightly longer than the tail, the sidecut and flex are moved to the back as well as the inserts. This gives the board more manoeuvrability, stability and flotation. The directional freeride shape of the Smoothie was perfected by Robin Van Gyn. The Smoothie is tapered – it narrows towards the tail- which makes the board even floatier.
The C2 profile is a perfect rocker/camber hybrid with a rocker between your feet combined with a camber out to the contact points on tip and tail. Control, precision and float are guaranteed. The Magne-Traction gives great edge hold all over the mountain, especially on hard pack and ice. 7 strategically located edge serrations provide hold and control in all conditions.
The heart of it all is a Full Hearted Core - energy (pop), light and lively. The Silky Smooth Bio Fibres are lighter than ﬁberglass. This renewable organic ﬁber has inherent vibration dampening properties and improved elasticity compared to other ﬁbers commonly used in snowboards. The 'Ultra High Molecular Weight' exterior UHMW sidewalls made from soy-based elastomer are laminated to five internal wood layers for totally bombproof and lightweight sidewalls. Finally, the Eco Sublimated top sheet features a tough and eco-sublimated layer to complete the construction.
Born out of an industry that was used to catering only to men, Roxy enjoyed fast success when they launched their women's surf line in 1990. Building from there, they have gone on to become the number one women's surf brand in the world. Adding skiing and snowboarding to their roster, Roxy have managed to steel the hearts of active women all around the globe.
