      Ride lightning.

      The Thunder smashed a new hole in the big mountain category when it debuted last year. It’s a straight-up freeride speed freak that’s built for aggressive resort shredding and turbo charged powder descents. Powerful riders will dig the smooth response we’ve dialed in through generous use of carbon and a beveled topsheet towards the waist. A combination of Triple Base and SideKick in the nose helps it float easily in the deep stuff. Bring the noise!

        Characteristics

        Flex

        6
        Soft
        Stiff

        Softer snowboards are easier to press and won’t kick your ass if you make a mistake. Stiffer decks are more stable at speed and super responsive edge-to-edge. Choose your poison.

        Float

        7.4

        Maximum volume for surfy vibes in the pow, or a smaller surface area for nimble freestyle performance. This number is calculated with length, width, 3D shape and surface distribution.

        Materials

        Glassing

        Our three-way weave of fiberglass is light, strong and responsive. We use this to beef up the flex pattern.

        Woodcore

        Our 50-50 paulownia and poplar woods blend for optimal strength to weight properties.

        Special Sauce

        Dual Super Tube. Hollow carbon core upgrades that are inserted into the core. The hollow carbon tubes greatly increase the woodcore’s pop and reduce weight.

        Carbon Lay-ups

        The type and placement of fiberglass greatly influences a board’s flex and riding characteristics. Boards are built with a layer of fiberglass above and below the woodcore.

        Base Tech

        Our standard sintered base that’s tough and fast, and faster when waxed.

        Base Tech

        Producing two or more base color options minimizes p-tex waste. That is why you will find flip flop base options on most of our die-cut bases. This means orders can be filled with either color option which makes environmental sense.

        Features

        Triple Base Technology™ is awesome. The lifted sidebase areas at the widest points of the board make a lot of sense. The boards turn smoother and faster and it helps when you are not completely clean on your landings.

        SideKick™ dramatically increases the sidebase uplift at the widest points of the nose and tail. This makes turn initiation even smoother, increases float in powder and handling of the board in rough terrain.

        SuperTubes™ are hollow carbon core upgrades that are inserted into the core in 3 different configurations. The hollow carbon tubes greatly increase the woodcore’s pop and reduce weight.

        Awesome All-Mountain/Freeride Board

        This is a great all-mountain / freeride board. It's not super stiff but stiffer than my first board. The 6/10 flex seems right. The board floats tremendously well in powder and rolls from edge to edge easily on the groomers. The directional setback is perfect for CO powder/soft days. It's not quite as good as my magnetraction board in hardpack/ice but then again, those conditions suck on any board. The 3BT took some getting used to but after two or three sessions it's natural now. Definitely requires committing more of the entirety of the edge as the board sort of rolls onto edge rather than engaging from the leading edge. But this also makes me focus on turning more with your knees/hips/weight rather than lazily pressuring my heels/toes like a straight-legged idiot. The 3BT helps the board plow pretty well through soft chop and chunder but I notice a little bit of nose rattle traversing bumpy hardpack. It's directional and I ride it as such but definitely can be ridden switch when needed. The board is gorgeous in person, understated and adult. You can't go wrong with this if you're looking for a great all-arounder/freeride board. 11.5 shoe 185lbs and 159W seems right.
