Short and wide for maximum fun all over the mountain
Shred your favourite powder runs like a dream with the T-Rice Orca. A tight 7 metre radius combined with a short, wide shape allows you to lay down the deepest Euro carves without touching the piste with your toes. The long nose and the "whale tail" offer plenty of room for creativity, whether in the backcountry or on the piste.
Travis Rice and Mervin will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each orca snowboard to www.orcaconservancy.org in support of their efforts to prevent the extinction of southern killer whales in the Salish Sea.
This board is perfect for you if you're an advanced rider always on the hunt for pristine powder slopes and deep carving turns.
The tapered directional shape is perfect for all-mountain and freeriding. The nose is longer and wider than the tail for best float in powder. The setback of the bindings provides additional support. The Magne-Traction® technology provides improved edge hold with serrated edges. Especially on icy slopes they unfold their full potential.
The C2X profile comes with a short rocker between the bindings combined with a large camber underneath the bindings. This combination offers a good edge hold thanks to the camber areas, as well as good uplift and unlimited freestyle action without catching an edge thanks to the rocker.
The medium-stiff flex ensures precise control and fast board response.
The 'Horsepower Construction' HP is even lighter than the 'Original Power Construction' OP, more environmentally friendly through the use of organic beans and basalt fibres and offers an extremely smooth ride. The aspen and paulownia wood core is sturdy and provides you with a lot of pop. The topsheet is made from organic sublimated beans. The sintered base is very fast, but requires careful maintenance.

Snowboards are usually delivered ready-to-ride with a waxed base and sharpened edges. However, this so-called factory-tuning is not very durable and your new snowboard should be properly waxed after a few days and maintained on a regular basis.
