With the T-Rice Orca, you can shred your favourite pillow lines like a dream and get creative on the groomers. A tight sidecut radius combined with a wider shape lets you link Euro-carves without toe-drags. The long floaty nose and the "whale tail" offer tons of fun in and out of the backcountry.
The Orca is a downsized snowboard. It is designed to ride it 6 - 10 cm shorter than your regular freeride snowboard. Just as a reference point for you: Travis Rice rides it in 153 cm.
This board is perfect for you, if you are an advanced rider and always on the hunt for untouched pow fields and deep carving turns.
A Tapered Directional board is the best for all-mountain freeriding. The nose is longer and wider than the tail, giving you plenty of control in any terrain, and the stance is set back to help you float above the pow. The Magne-Traction serrated edges give great edge hold all over the mountain, especially on hard pack and ice.
C2x means short rocker between the bindings combined with large cambers under the bindings. This combination offers good edge hold thanks to the camber underfoot, as well as great float in powder and unlimited freestyle action without hang-ups thanks to the rocker.
The medium-stiff flex provides you with a lively board that allows you to stay in control at all speeds and pop over everything.
The 'Horsepower construction' HP is lighter than the 'Original Power Construction' OP, environmentally nicer due to the usage of bio beans and basalt fibre and offers an extremely smooth ride. The Aspen and Paulownia wood core is robust with a lot of pop. The top sheet is made of Eco-sublimated bio beans. The sintered Base is very fast but requires careful maintenance.
