Construction and Materials
Using alternative strips of Paulownia and Poplar wood in equal quantities as part of their PopCore Rome have maximised versatility on the Women’s Ravine to ensure you can take it anywhere and know that it will get the job done.
Milled into the tail end of the core are 2 Carbon Hotrods that work their way out from the insert packs towards the tail and help to add a whole heap of snap and response under your back foot. If you’re someone who likes to use every available inch of your board to boost yourself into the sky, these things will help you transfer all of your energy right out to the end of tail for maximum lift.
This is all sandwiched between Biax and Triax laminates that add enough torsional play in the board to feel fun underfoot, but control it enough that it’s responsive when you need it to be.
We’ve got a lot of time for brands that name things in ways that are easy to understand and on the bottom of the Women’s Ravine you’ll find a Sinterstrong base that (shockingly) is both sintered, and strong. Not only will this thing run quick and take a beating, but if you do manage to ding it badly, it should be easier to repair than other sintered alternatives.
