The Mountain Twin was one of the four original models in our debut 2010 board collection. Now eleven winters later, the Mountain Twin is still one of the foundations of our line and one of our best selling models. Why? Because it’s our most versatile shape and it’s super fun to ride anywhere on the mountain. If you like to mix up your runs between chutes, trees and the terrain park, the Mountain Twin and the Twin series are designed for you. All four Twin series models are built to offer amazing freestyle and freeride performance in any snow condition.

For 2021 we’re thrilled to present an all-new Twin series featuring a 3D Contour Base and a unique new directional twin shape. To re-invent these classic models we re-designed every millimeter of the shape and profile.

The new Twin Series is modernized from the ground up. Our design process goes way beyond just coming up with a cool looking new shape. We analyze every curve, from the outline, to the spoon, to the profile, and purposefully meld the curves together to unlock the highest performance possible. This extreme makeover of the Twin series was years in the making and the result is the most versatile, approachable, all-terrain, all-conditions snowboards that we have ever made.

The Twin series includes four models - Mountain Twin, Mountain Twin Split, Ultra Mountain Twin and Twin Sister. All four of these models now feature our cutting edge 3D Contour Bases. Inspired by the rounded bottom contours of surfboards, 3D Contour Bases have the tip and tail edges rounded up like a spoon. Adding this beveling makes every run smoother and every turn more effortless by reducing the drag of the board tips.

"On a surfboard, the subtle shaping of the nose is what makes the entry into a turn so smooth and fluid. The feeling of an effortless surf turn is what inspired the development of our 3D Contour Bases. Instead of having to abruptly tip the board into a turn, 3D Contour Bases let you roll your edge into a turn. I’ve been on a quest to design snowboards that offer the free friction glide and edge-to-edge fluidity of a surfboard for years. 3D Contour Bases cracked the code on how to achieve this next level of board performance."

The new shape outline of the Twin series has a more blunted profile. The blunt tips reduce weight and offer more float with less length. The Twin series also features our new Freestyle/Freeride Stance Pack. This stance pack allows you to set up your board with a stance centered on the contact points for a traditional ‘true twin’ freestyle feel or a set back ‘directional twin’ stance for pow days and pillow lines.

The Mountain Twin is available in ten sizes: 151, 154, 156W, 157, 159W, 160, 162W, 163, 165W and 168W cm.

Mountain Twin

The freestylin' freerider.

The Mountain Twin is designed for playful shredders who want a friendly and forgiving board that can ride-it-all. With a mid-stiff twin flex and a balanced CamRock profile it excels at poppin’ pillows and pressin’ boxes, but it’s also an easy board to turn and finesse in tight terrain. The Mountain Twin’s V-core is stiffer in the tips and softer between the feet so you can slash around the whole mountain like it’s an endless skatepark without sacrificing stability for bombing lines. The 3D Contour Base makes every turn more effortless and improves float in pow. The new Mountain Twin has also been upgraded with Traction Tech 3.0 edge and a Sintered 8000 base. Traction Tech keeps you locked in on firm snow and the Sintered 8000 base is super fast and durable.

The Ultra Mountain Twin is available in eight sizes: 154, 156W, 157, 159W, 160, 162W, 163 and 165W cm.

Ultra Mountain Twin

High powered fall line freestyler.

The Ultra Mountain Twin is the yoked older brother of the Mountain Twin. It’s a lean and mean directional twin built with speed boosting, chatter sucking premium materials. It’s designed for the expert freerider who likes to throw big tricks outside the terrain park. Featuring a stiff flex, Flax/Basalt Power Stringers and a Ash veneer topsheet, the Ultra Twin has a damp yet poppy board feel that can go zero to sixty like a sport bike and suck up chatter like a trophy truck. Matched with a new 3D Contour Base 2.0, the Ultra Twin is super quick edge-to-edge and easy to keep afloat in pow. The Ultra Twin also features Traction Tech 3.0 edges for snap and hold on hard pack and a Sintered 9900 base for carrying speed through transitions and take offs.

The Ultra Mountain Twin is my one board quiver. I ride it pretty much every day of the season from ripping around the resort to my contest runs on the Freeride World Tour. The new Ultra Twin is even more powerful and faster down the line than the old edition. It rips at any speed and stomps in any conditions.

The Mountain Twin Split is available in three sizes: 157, 159 and 160 cm.

Mountain Twin Split

The backcountry twin.

The Mountain Twin Split offers creative splitboarders a premium directional twin shape option for getting rad in the backcountry. It’s designed to offer precision control riding regular or switch on any terrain, from chutes to tree runs to backcountry booters. The Mountain Twin Split’s completely redesigned shape has a more blunted tip profile, a 3D Contour Base 2.0 and Inner/Outer Traction Tech 3.0 edges. The blunt tips reduce weight, Traction Tech keeps you locked in on firm snow and the 3D Contour Base makes every turn more effortless. For unmatched torsional board lock in ride mode the Mountain Twin Split features the Boltless Bridge and Karakoram Split and Tip + Tail Clips. To complete the redesign we upgraded to our new super fast and durable Sintered 8000 base.

The Twin Sister is available in six sizes: 140, 143, 146, 149, 152 and 155 cm.

Twin Sister

The friendly ripper.

The Twin Sister is a premium directional twin built for female riders who want a playful board they can rally anywhere on the mountain. Featuring a CamRock profile and a friendly medium-stiff flex, the Twin Sister offers amazing float in pow, turns on a dime and is easy to ride switch. The Twin Sister features the same premium construction and materials as the Mountain Twin including Traction Tech 3.0 edges for added edge grip on hard pack, a 3D Contour Base for effortless turn initiation and a super fast and durable Sintered 8000 base.
