Terrain parks create a distorted reality. It's one of the transitions, tubes and foreign objects that are strange for most resort goers, but totally awesome for snowboarders. we built the Distortia for ladies that like to live in this world. It's a soft-medium flexing true twin with a centered stance and our Park 3BT shaping, giving it a wide centerbase section that's stable to jib, press, slide, snap and land. The full popular wood core and bi-axial fiberglass are chock full of snappy positive camber. The 3BT edge uplift outside the binding gives it a catch-free feel for greasy butters, putting down landings and avoiding scorpion slams. It's slimmed down to fit the female frame and ready to turn park dreams into reality.
Woodcore- Dual density full wood core composed of poplar with beech running tip to tail along the insert packs. The added beech hardwood strengthens the board’s backbone under the bindings and produces more pop from tip to tail while still offering a comfortable lateral flex.
Woodcore- Our full-length wood V-Core Profile has material milled out between the inserts to create a highly maneuverable and natural flexing feel between the feet. Under the bindings and towards the tips is normal thickness for strength to load up pop and put down landings.
Base- Hard and fast. Our sintered base material is tough stuff and its microscopic pores retain wax nuggets for a slick slide. To get the maximum benefits of a sintered base it needs to be waxed regularly. We finish ours with a proper hot wax before they leave the factory.
Layup- Our bi-axial or two-way fiberglass is a 90-degree weave of fiberglasses placed under and atop the core to strengthen and add pop to the board. We place our material at a 45-degree angle rather than a 90-degree angle to the edge so you get better overall board feel, flex and edging. Our bi-ax layups create a really maneuverable board, one that you can almost steer with your feet.
Layup- Just like you put a fleece layer on for cold days, we add a layer of composite material around the inserts of the board for strength and more rapid and precise power transfer from your bindings.
Triple Base Shape
Sidebases Full Length
We developed our Park 3BT to be playful yet stable with a wide centerbase, slight camber and true twin shape to perform in terrain parks around the globe. The edge uplift areas start mid-binding and extend towards the tips for a loose feel with less bite. The wide centerbase on the other hand helps with stability off lips, on landings, in presses and at high speeds.
