They say: Your versatile board for any terrain.
We say: With its directional twin shape this board will feel comfortable wherever you ride it, and that slightly stiffer progressive flex means its reasonably solid at speed. It’s not designed for experts, but for intermediate-going-on-experienced shredders it’s perfect.
Tester says: Nice! Stable, but still easy to turn. No chatter at speed and plenty of pop.

- History lesson: Engineer Howard Head (that’s a great name isn’t it?) started this company as a ski brand in 1950. He was soon shocking the conservative world of ski manufacturing with his use of innovative tech and new materials. The company that bears his name has continued to push the boat out with some of the super-tech ideas they’ve carried over to their boards. With access to the kind of research and development that most snowboard companies can only dream of, their boards get pretty crazy.
- Ridden by: Beginners, self-confessed snowboard tech geeks, and the kind of rider who’s good enough to feel the difference technology makes without ever giving a shit about how it works.
