The Carbon Flagship is a seriously stiff, competition-ready freeride gun that crushes terrain unlike any board you’ve ever experienced. It’s built to be chatter free at any speed and stable enough to stomp airs bigger than your legs can handle. For 2017 we’ve both re-shaped and re-designed the Carbon Flagship using 2X Textreme Carbon instead of a traditional topsheet and a Spoon 3.0 Nose and Tail. The new version is every bit as powerful and responsive, but even faster edge-to-edge thanks to the Spoon tips and a new progressive sidecut profile that eliminates friction at the contact points.
A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.
My experience is that most falls in freeriding start from the nose of the board – you either go over the bars in powder, the nose gets caught under a weird crust and tosses you, or you hit a hard tranny at the contact point of the tip and get bucked. Directional Rocker eliminates most of these falls.
The Carbon Series are the most high performance boards we produce. They are designed to meet the demands of ground breaking riders who push the limits of what’s possible on a snowboard. If you ride confidently and chase serious new chal- lenges on your snowboard, these are the boards you’re looking for.
