Sidecut Design

This is another exception of this snowboard. The special featured sidecut design provides better performance overall. It provides more room and flexibility of your movements and of the board. Also making way for you to try out more advanced tricks, without the snowboard getting in the way. The sidecut design also provides a better ride, you will be able to cruise the slopes very smoothly and comfortably.

Flex, camber, and sidecut shape all interact

Asymmetrical Sidecut
Snowboard sidecut design in which the toe edge and heel edge have different sidecut radii. In shifted asymmetrical sidecut boards the center of the heel sidecut radius is shifted farther back than the toe side radius in order to compensate for the center of weight distribution which differs between toe and heel edges.
