The flex pattern is balanced, leaving the board to respond in the same manner forward as backward.
This profile is popular for freeride boards designed primarily for soft snow.
Superior grip, stability, and responsive performance, but also excellent float in powder.

Developed as a go-to, ride-it-all deck, the Basic has been refined over the years to the point that both pros and newbies reach for it on a regular basis. The UnderBite outline extracts more arc, more hold and a better carving experience out of every design we apply it to and the Basic was the genesis of it all.

Better edge hold and easier turns Redistributing rider weight and input power, UnderBite enhances turning ease and edge hold. By having the edge pulled back a couple of millimeters at the binding area acts like a gaz pedal or a segregated 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 in an then you need the edge to drive thus we have only 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.

The Yes baseline core for tip to tail woodcore snowboard construction. Strikes a predictable balance between durability, consistent flex and light weight.
This material is formed by extrusion. It’s softer than our other two bases, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. At the speeds many of us ride, this material is actually quicker (gets up to speed faster) than sintered when waxed correctly. You may have your own proof of this when you’re smoking by someone with a dried out “high-end” base. It also retains wax better because it’s more porous and is easy to fix with a P-Tex stick if you get scratches in it..
