Riding powder is like hiking a backcountry camping trip. Once you 're past the trailhead, if you have the right gear there 's nothing better. If you have the wrong gear, there 's nothing worse. The Navigator is your all-weather fire starter, it 's your compass that never fails. It 's the snow tool that keeps you afloat when your friends get stuck. It 's not essential to the experience, it is essential to a great experience. Anyone that has spent a powder day filled with cartwheels and yard sales knows the difference. Featuring a Parabolic Sidecut that carves hard and flows into a sinking tapered tail, the wide frame rockered nose naturally floats above the deep snow and ensures that your powder days are effortless, epic-level experiences.
If you like to go for some fresh snow in the morning, hit a backcountry kicker around lunch and take some speedy carves in the afternoon, this might be the perfect board for you.
A parabolic sidecut consists of a mirror-symmetrical curve. In snowboard terms, this design creates a board with a deeper sidecut and a quicker turning point in the center compared to radial arcs.
At the Powder Camber Profile, you will find a zero camber area between your bindings, offering a smooth ride and great edge hold. The reverse camber in the nose and short the kicktail raises the contact points of the board and increases the float in powder.
The medium flex offers the needed stability to defeat any condition the mountain can deliver, even at high speeds. However, the board is still soft enough to allow creative park runs.
The FSC® Certified Dual Core™ is a very poppy and lightweight poplar core combined with beech for increased power and durability. Carbon Fiber Beams give in some extra power to push your riding to a stronger level. Triax/Biax Holysheet™ has higher glass to weight ratio than traditional fiberglass, for a more powerful and dynamic ride. When impregnated with a high-performance plant based Magic Bean™ resin, you get a high performing board tailored to meet your style of riding. The Superdrive™ base is the new standard in sintered base materials, and it is precision forged for high abrasion resistance and a super smooth glide. This material is targeted towards versatility in a high-end sintered base and strikes a unique and sought after balance between high performance and low maintenance.
