The Discovery 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. 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. New For 2018, the Discovery comes in one new size, 132 cm.
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.
Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board. “Traction Tech is a critical feature for rockered boards. Rocker improves glide in mixed conditions, but the decreased edge contact makes it harder to really lock into your turns and hold a solid edge. Traction Tech is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker.”
“How a board glides in powder, crust, corn or any snow more than an inch deep, is dictated by it’s front contact point and just past it. Next time you are in soft snow watch how much snow comes over the corner of the nose near the contact point. The billowing snow coming out from behind the tip means you are plowing through it which is obviously slowing you down. By adding a blunt nose you get the float benefits of a much longer nose without the ‘snow plow’ rounded tip and it’s extra swing weight.” - Jeremy Jones
At the far ends of the sidecut, the radius is incrementally increased as the edge reaches the contact point. Gradually increasing the side cut radius towards the contact point delivers smoother turn initiation and exit as the edge tracks in and out of the snow with a less abrupt transition.
