The Discovery solid is our freeride board for youth and small adults who want to confidently explore new terrain. Unlike most twin-tipped youth boards, the Discovery features a proven directional shape that delivers legit freeride performance for smaller riders. New for 2017, the Discovery features a Spoon 1.0 Nose and Tail. The edges of the Spoon nose are beveled up for improved turn fluidity and the tail edges are beveled up for less catch. Tech features on the Discovery like Progressive Sidecut allow for easy turn initiation while the Blunt Nose and Directional Rocker profile keep any size rider cruising through the inevitable end-of-the-day chop.
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.
