Rome Pintail

Rome Pintail

Rome’s Powder S 3D Rocker gives you ample float in the powder and an unbeatable surfy feel in the snow. This is thanks to the spooned Rocker in the nose, and positive camber in the midsection and tail.

The Pop Core Matrix core tech uses 2 zones of low densitiy wood to give you the perfect balance between lightness, response and strength. For that extra bit of stability in the powder, Turbo Rods are used in the nose section to give you a damp, smooth ride in the powder.

Thanks to the SinterTrue base tech you’ll be charging down the piste at high speed. The Straight Biax Carbon Laminates squeeze the power out of the board to give you explosive ollies without making the deck as stiff as a board.

This right here is the switchblade of powder boards. It’s quick, maneuverable, and it will slash the backcountry like none other. While many great powder boards are large and surfy, the Kazu Kokubo Pro comes in a compact chassis with a powder nose and a slightly tapered tail. It unleashes maximum power from the Panda Core™ with Bamboo Power Rods™ and is loaded with high-end construction components like Engineered Carbon Arcs and an all new Omega Mark II™ high-speed sintered base.

Rome Moontail

The Powder S 3D Rocker, build to float across the deep stuff, uses Rome’s spooned 3D rocker in the nose of the board. And a positive camber in the midsection and tail. This unique combo gives you a that rare blend of surfy fun and explosive slashing.

The Moontail has been equipped with the Rome Pop Core Matrix for a lightweight board which doesn’t scrimp on the strength and pop. Because this is a directional board, you’ll be able to concentrate pop in the tail end while still getting loads of float and control in the backcountry.

Basalt Impact Plates under bindings give the Moontail added strength and durability. This is coupled with Glass Single Barrel HotRods system… which is a center line rod of fiber glass giving you massive pop and responsiveness while keeping the board light.

K2 Cool Bean

While this bean won’t grow into a magical stalk if you plant it, you can still charge into hidden pow stashes on it. This is thanks to the K2 All Terrrain Baseline ™ ( with Tweakend technology )which lets you carve effortless turns in the deepest snow, while giving you a more stable platform with boatloads of float.

To give the board that fun, surfy feel the shape is short and wide.The WH3 Core is an upgrade to the W2 core. Adding two strips of HoneyKomb ™ material for strength and durability. And to round the whole deal off, the 400 sintered base lets you tear up the mountain at high speed without risking damaging the board.

Arbor Cosa Nostra

Arbor Cosa Nostra

Arbor went all out for the 20th Anniversary deck with this powder blasting blade. The Reclined Parabolic Rocker gives you ample float and a surfey feel…while also making sure you have firm edgehold on the toughest conditions you can take it to.

The directional shape of the board gives you a stable ride, while the Arrowhead Tip design gives you ample float in the white stuff. Thanks to the Highland Core, the board is extremely lightweight letting you tackle the powder and hog the park like a seasoned pro.

Carbon Struts running down the center of the core from tip to tail reinforce the board while making it easy for you to turn.

The 3D Powder Hull Rocker Line in the 2020 combines two distinct rocker lines to create a baseline which floats in the deepest powder with the same planing angle you’d normally get with directional boards.

Yes’ Weightless Core uses a combo of poplar and paulownia woods in a distinct pattern to shave off excess weight without harming the core’s durability. The Sintered True tech in the base unlocks the board’s full speed when you’re riding aggresively fast.

And that’s not all, Sintered bases soak up and hold wax real good so you don’t have to wax it as often to keep it in tip top condition.

Yes 420

The PowRock 6-0-2 aggressive rocker gives you an edge on the snow. The rocker in the tip and flat underfoot delivers a forgiving ride in all snow conditions while making it easy as ABC to butter out of any tricks you pull off.

The Radial Tapered shape, inspired by Steve Lis uses a punched out waist width to give you the predictability and float you usually get from much longer boards. This shape is built on the Weightless core, which dishes out a near perfect balance of strength and weight.

All this tech further enhanced by using the Sintered Spec base. This base tech not only squeezes every ounce of performance out of your board but it also reinforces it against bumps and scratches.
