Why we chose the Vimana Continental Directional Snowboard: Simplicity at its best (also look at the price?!).
This Scandi-land brand has pleased the Whitelines team for quite a while now and this year is no different from the rest. The Vimana Continental Directional has earned its place in the Whitelines 100, fair and square. Scroll down if you want to know why this Viking like vehicle has sailed its way into this exquisite list of ours.
“The setback 20mm and 3mm taper are quite modest, so keeping it steezy in the park won’t be of any problem”
For the last few years Vimana have been all about producing their Continental board range with both rocker and camber profiled boards. Until now that is. A classic camber profile is known to please the 90s crowd, and while it remains to be seen whether Vimana have made the right choice by going that way with things here it’s a choice we stand fully behind.
The camber profile allows for plenty of snap and edge hold. With a directional shape, a 20mm setback and a slight taper, this thing will keep you balanced whether you’re floating through powder or practicing the fine art of carving. Despite the board’s directional shape it’s a beast in the park too. The setback 20mm and 3mm taper are quite modest, so keeping it steezy on the features won’t be a problem.
