Why feel good when you can feel better? Catch free Freestyle TBT slimmed down to give it catlike agility. This board is as forgiving as it gets which makes snowboarding so much more fun. It will sure make you feel good; No, better. This board features Triple Base Technology (TBT) - Triple base technology divides the nose and tail area of the board into 3 parts: the left and right side bases for turning and the center flat middle section for going straight. TBT involves pressing boards that, at rest, possess the shape that a traditional camber board adopts during a turn, when the edge is under pressure. The center base section features a classic full tip to tail camber for responsiveness and pop. The edge sections are concaved so that they are raised off of the floor. This results in less edge catches and a more forgiving ride. The edge section concaves are progressive. They start off flat in the binding areas and grow to a maximum uplift at the board's widest points, which means these points are far less likely to dig in but the board still carves really well. The unique aspect of TBT design is that the edges remain uplifted even when bearing the full weight of the rider. The edges on a TBT board already have the shape of a cambered board edge when carving. When riding on an edge, the board is fully loaded with pop ready to power you into your next turn and the Triple Base shape ensures that the whole edge gets engaged as soon as the next turn is initiated.
