DESCRIPTION

Rail it, float it, send it.

A mid-wide waist width coupled with an aggressive sidecut and UnderBite sets you up for a turning experience like no other. Response, stability and edge hold on every snow condition. Floats better than anything this side of a 420. Enjoy the shorter swing weight by riding it a few cm’s shorter than your normal board and you will unlock this board’s true versatility.

 

PRODUCT DETAILS

DESIGNED FOR: Intermediate - Expert / All-Mountain, Pow, Backcountry

    SHAPE: Directional 

    FLEX:  7/10 

    BASE: Sintered Spec

    CAMBER PROFILE: Directional CamRock

    BINDING MOUNT: 4x2 12-pack

    FEATURES:

    CAMROCK
    The response of camber with floatability of rocker. By combining camber and rocker you allow the board to be both responsive and floaty. The camber is between your feet as a spring keeping your contact points on the ground as you go in and out of turns allowing you to keep that edge hold longer. Once compressed the camber will accentuate the rocker and lift the nose out more allowing it to float.

    UNDERBITE
    UnderBite edges re-distribute a rider’s weight in such a way that it enhances turning ease and edge hold. Creating divots inward at the binding area reduces and disrupts the surface area of the edge that has contact with the snow while the board is turning. This increases the edge pressure by distributing your weight/energy in the areas where you need it - from the binding out, and through the center of the board where the carving arc is taking place. This segmentation of the sidecut into 3 key zones focuses your body weight onto areas that initiate, hold and release turns.

    CARBON POWERDRIVE 2.0
    Evolving over the years, the PowerDrive core is always about maximizing the power and energy of any given shape. The Optimistic begins with the same light, snappy Poplar and Bamboo core featured on the Standard and Ghost. We then mill two custom programmed channels about 30mm in from the edge, running parallel to and matching the sidecut dimensions. Inserted into these channels are pre-bent bamboo stringers wrapped in carbon. The end result is a highly responsive core that precisely matches and compliments the outline of each board. From intuitive turn initiation, solid edge hold and explosive release, the PowerDrive core is constantly active.
