The longstanding rider and fan favourite Drake Team is back and better than ever. A few choice nips and tucks have streamlined the Team and although it retains much of its classic feel, it now boasts even more versatility than it has previously.
An updated shape blunts the nose and tail reducing the swing weight in those key zones, boosting the Team’s freestyle credentials. This diminishes the pendulum effect that can be found and offers more balance and control when you’re spinning. Also new for 2020/21 are the UR’INSANE urethane sidewalls, these soak up chatter from bombing cat tracks or mottled pistes.

When it comes to pop and power, you can’t beat a classic camber profile. As the board is weighted it powers up the sidecut and always wants to pop and spring back up delivering an aggressive and dynamic ride. It’s not as forgiving as a rockered or flat board but gives far more control and precision in all conditions.
Backing up the lively profile is a carbon Kevlar rod running through the centre of the board from tip to tail. This not only energises the whole length of the Team, but it works to dampen some of the high frequency vibrations when you’re blasting full speed.
“It’s just begging to boost sidehits, bomb hills and pop windlips”
The Drake Team screams all-mountain freestyle, it’s just begging to boost sidehits, bomb hills and pop windlips. Nice and playful torsionally, but response and energetic through the length, you’ve got a best of both worlds approach.
