With so much snowboarding talent coming out of Scandi-land, you’d expect our friends in the north to also know a thing or two about board-building. That’s where Vimana come in. A young brand (this is only their third winter), it’s one that nevertheless is turning plenty of heads, as well as supporting some of the all-time greats (more on which later).
“Carbon and Kevlar both compliment the all-poplar core, so you get stability at speed as well as extra height on take-off”
The Vimana Clone is their most serious stick; a stiff, directional weapon for high speeds and higher heart rates. It’s been designed to deliver insane edge hold, with a combination of classic camber bend and aggressive sidecut. Thanks to the sintered base, it’ll fairly whip along if you let it.
Carbon and Kevlar both compliment the all-poplar core, so you get stability at speed as well as extra height on take-off. It’ll take some effort to get the most out of it, but ride it properly and your efforts, whether in the powder or on the groomers, will be rewarded in spades.
The three different sizes have designs inspired by three of the legends on Vimana’s pro team: Michi Albin, Fredi Austbo and Markku Koski. If you want to tip the cap to a legend whilst pushing your own riding, the Vimana Clone is the answer.
