Response, stability and edge hold on every snow condition. Floats better than anything this side of a 420. Enjoy the shorter swing weight by riding it a few cm’s shorter than your normal board and you will unlock this board’s true versatility.
Please Note: The base is die cut and to reduce waste base colour can vary and can't be selected.
Camber is the base of snowboarding: you need to have an edge hold long enough to drive in and out of turns, the Camber acts as a shock absorber on cars they push the wheels into the road to enhance grip. The camber does exactly that to the edge. Allowing you to drive your turns longer and release later.

Carbon PowerDrive 2.0 – Evolving over the years, the PowerDrive core is always about maximizing the power and energy of any given shape. The Optimistic begins with the same light, snappy Poplar and Bamboo core featured on the Standard and Ghost. Yes. then mills two custom programmed channels about 30mm in from the edge, running parallel to and matching the sidecut dimensions. Inserted into these channels are pre-bent bamboo stringers wrapped in carbon. The end result is a highly responsive core that precisely matches and compliments the outline of each board. From intuitive turn initiation, solid edge hold and explosive release, the PowerDrive core is constantly active.

Pellets or course powder is pressed until it forms a solid. There are several suppliers for our entire industry and they each have different codes for them, depending on the color and transparency. These codes can make it seem like you’re getting many different kinds and grades of sintered but they’re all pretty much the same as far as you and I will ever tell. True Sintered is harder and more expensive than extruded and it can be faster for those that ride aggressively fast. But to do that, it needs to be waxed and prepared for local conditions.
UnderBite : Better edge hold and easier turns. Redistributing rider weight and input power, UnderBite enhances turning ease and edge hold. By having the edge pulled in a couple of millimetres at the binding area acts like a gas pedal or a serrated knife, enhancing the cutting power of the edge. While you are turning on hard packed snow you need an insertion point to ease the edge. Then you need the edge to drive. We only have a couple inlays because once you’ve engaged your edge you are driving your turn. UnderBite allows you to have that extra leverage to apply power to the edge where you want to. From nose to tail you have a better edge control and a smoother drive.
