They say: Very fast, powerful and friendly.
We say: This is friendly if you like speed – if you’re a beginner it’s probably best to take a step back. With titanium inserts and Palmer’s ‘Nomex Honeycomb core’ this is one of the lightest, fastest boards ever built.
Tester says: Super stiff, super fast. Great handling at speed. A great freeride board.

- History lesson: Shaun Palmer is one of those people who writes history himself – and then makes sure the whole world knows about it. Famous not only for having one of the biggest mouths in snowboarding, but also for having the balls to back it up, Shaun Palmer won countless contests across different disciplines during the nineties. A love of shiny gold suits and outrageous boasting ensured he was never far from the limelight. Eventually ending up as a snowboardcross specialist, Palm’s boards tend to be designed for hard charging speed lovers.
- Ridden by: Anyone who really, really loves speed. And people who want to go fast.
