Tom Sims created the snowboarder and the snowboarder created the Blade. The Blade features an amazing modern/vintage directional shape and Traditional Camber. Micro Early Rise is added in the nose for quicker response and improved float. Quad Carbon V has been added to the nose and tail enhancing laid out, old school carves just like Tom used to rip. But you better not stop there. The Blade is an all mountain, American made, throwback style board with the technology of the future.
All-mountain freeride. It loves deep powder runs but never complains about riding anywhere else. Just like Tom.
Directional is the classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition. The Vario Power Grip Sidecut utilises multiple radii creating extra contact points to enhance edge hold.
The profile features an underfoot camber with a micro early rise in the nose. The float of the rockered nose improves manoeuvrability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response.
The flex is medium/firm, this gives the board a balanced feel. It’s hard enough to stay in control on hard charged mountain lines or bigger kickers, but it still has enough flex for advanced buttering.
Quad Carbon V laminates are V-shaped carbon fibres found in the nose and tail that are extended from the inserts to the effective edge of the base, to add control, maximum boost, and pop. The Durasurf Sintered 4501 is the fastest base Sims ever used, prepare for takeoff! Bi-Lite Fiberglass combines many of the strength characteristics of STS fibreglass with an ultra light glass fibre matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability. The lightweight RDS 2 Damping System uses three narrower laminated damping layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration absorption and stability. Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high-speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.
