ALWAYS BEST IN CLASS. After winning four consecutive Good Wood Awards, the Hel YES. has anchored itself as one of the industry's top standards for women's free-riding. A directional twin layout, UnderBite outline, sintered base and a bamboo stringer core has allowed Helen to carry her unique mark on women's snowboarding.
DELIVERS IN ALL CONDITIONS. The Hello was built in response to a growing demand for a true resort board. Using the same outline as the Hel YES., this new model shares the edge hold and carving ability of UnderBite to deliver performance on the groomers, side-hits and in the park. The directional twin shape allows it to float shamelessly through powder and chatter, making it a true quiver-killer.
RAIL IT, FLOAT IT, SEND IT. A mid-wide waist width coupled with an aggressive sidecut and UnderBite sets you up for a turning experience like no other. Response, stability and edge hold on every snow condition. Floats better than anything this side of a 420. Enjoy the shorter swing weight by riding it a few cm's shorter than your normal board and you will unlock this board's true versatility.
WHEN PIGS FLY. We wanted to pay tribute to all the boards that had derived from the iconic 420 by doing our own version of a 420 spinoff. We took the short-wide concept and applied it to the traditional MidBite Twin profile. In order to keep the taper that makes the floatability of the 420 possible, we needed to tweak the MidBite in the all-new Tapered MideBite outline. This new Midbite has a deeper inlay on the front of the board than it has on the back. This creates a taper as the edge goes out 2mm less than on the nose giving you a slight taper on a twin shape.
The apex resort ripping, pow pillow blasting snowboard in pinnacle apex carbon carbon technology performance construction. A long floaty nose, powerful poppy contact maximizing “whale tail technology”. A tight 7m trench gouging sidecut wide enough to allow you to really put it on hardpack rail with no toe drag and float pillows like a dream but narrow enough to be your daily driver. Carbon over carbon over magnesium wrapping a recycled PET plastic bottle, paulownia, balsa and FSC certified aspen core. Eco sublimated bio beans top and rugged/fast sintered knife cut base. Our favorite power fish snowboard just went bionic. VOLUME SHIFTED, RIDE THIS BOARD 3-6 CM SHORTER THAN YOUR NORMAL BOARD. TRAVIS’ DREAM DIRECTIONAL SHAPE IN DREAM CARBON CONSTRUCTION RESORT RIPPING TO HELI DROPS FLOATY NOSE, TIGHT SIDECUT, MAXIMUM POWER TAIL ART BY: Andrew Schoultz (@aschoultz) “This board is all about zero compromises when it comes to pure pow or even smooth corduroy. Light, extremely responsive and packing mega snap, the Apex Orca is a predator. This is a vehicle that is meant to leverage! Straight up, this board is not meant for bell to bell days on bumpy resort conditions. While this carbon board is absolutely the dampest carbon board on the market, when it comes to chopped up and bumpy afternoons on resort, a wood core is a more forgiving ride. When you get this board in its sweet spot, you can’t beat it. Andrew Schultz went Stereophonic on the vibratory rate of this top sheet to compliment the feeling that this board has in pow. This board is a sports car, not to be confused with the utilitarianism of a daily driver!” - Travis Rice
Not your gutless fish. Travis has juiced up this Jackson Hole resort slasher into an apex all terrain tech shred predator. A long floaty nose combined with a powerful poppy contact maximizing short radius “Whale Tail Technology”. A tight 7m trench gouging sidecut. Wide enough to allow you to really put it on a hardpack rail with no toe drag and float pillows like a dream but still narrow enough to be your daily driver all season long. Take it to AK, drop BC pillow stacks or blow minds at the home resort all season. A mammal to eat all fish. TR. Award winning! VOLUME SHIFTED, RIDE THIS BOARD 3-6 CM SHORTER THAN YOUR NORMAL BOARD. Travis and Mervin will be donating a portion of the sale of each Orca snowboard to the www.orcaconservancy.org in support of their efforts to prevent the extinction of the Salish Sea’s Southern Resident Killer Whales. #betheirvoice DREAM DIRECTIONAL SHAPE AND CONTOUR FOR WHAT TRAVIS CALLS FUN APEX FREERIDE POW RIPPER MEETS RESORT SLASHING DAILY DRIVER FLOATY NOSE, TIGHT SIDECUT, MAXIMUM POWER TAIL ART BY: Andrew Schoultz (@aschoultz) “I reached out to an old friend and one of the hardest working artists of epic-ness out there, who still manages a-treflip-a-day, Andrew Schultz. We teamed up to support The Orca Conservancy’s fight to protect the Southern Resident Killer Whales! Not only do a portion of the sales of this board go to the Orca Conservancy, but we will be auctioning off the original painting next fall with all proceeds going to TOC to celebrate this apex predator.” - Travis Rice Keeping it in the family: This year’s T.Rice Orca base “eye patch” resembles that of Southern Resident K-Pod Orca “Tika” (K-33) born 2001. “Tika” is the grandson of female orca “Sequim” (K-12) and his uncle is “Rain Shadow” (K-37 ), the orcas whose eye patches were used in previous years. His name also means “swift” (in Chinook First Nations language) which is how you’re coming down the mountain on these boards.
The freeride foundation Ideal for freeriding and fall line freestyle The Flagship excels in technical terrain and is one the most confidence inspiring freeride boards on the planet. Featuring a directional rocker profile + Traction Tech 3.0 for unmatched edge grip on hard snow and a 3D Contour Base 3.0 for epic float in pow, the Flagship carves, stomps or straight lines with unbelievable precision. The Flagship’s tapered shape sinks the tail in pow for better float and quicker turns, while the Engineered Veneer Topsheet, Flax/ Basalt Power Stringers and Power Core add torsional response and reduce board chatter in rough snow. The Flagship also has Float Pack inserts that give you the option of super setback stance on the deepest days.
Alternative all-mountain shredder Ideal for creative freeriding and freestyle The Mind Expander is an alternative all-mountain board that wants to slash every terrain feature in sight. Surf shaper Chris Christenson and Jeremy Jones designed the Mind Expander for the creative rider who draws lines blending freestyle, freeride and surf styles. The blunted nose, full size tail, tight sidecut, and 3D Contour Base 3.0 offer the nimble maneuverability of a directional board matched with the all-mountain performance of a directional twin. New for 22/23, the Mind Expander now features a Surf Camber profile for better edge hold in variable conditions and the stance was moved forward 20mm for improved carving performance. To keep the playful board feel, the Bamboo Surf Core has V-core profiling that gives the board a softer flex between the feet for easy turn initiation and a stiffer flex in the tips so you won’t fold the nose. The Mind Expander is also built with Basalt Power Stringers for edge response, Rounded Recycled ABS Sidewalls for topsheet durability, and a super fast Sintered 8000 base.
Surf-inspired powder slasher Ideal for surfing frozen waves and snorkel deep days The Storm Chaser is a power packed swallowtail that offers magical float in pow and radical carving potential. Surfboard shaper Chris Christenson designed the rocker profile and base contours of the Storm Chaser by using the refined dimensions of his fastest gliding surfboards. The result is an explosively fast powder rocket that packs insane float into a nimble, short board. The ultra-wide waist width and 3D Contour Base 3.0 help maximize the float of the short running length and the Surf Rocker profile pops the nose even further out of the snow when you rock into a bottom turn. For a lively board feel, the Storm Chaser features a Bamboo Surf Core, and an ultra fast and durable Sintered 8000 base.
The slicing and dicing speed arrow Ideal for high speed slashing in any condition The Storm Wolf is a high powered swallowtail that blends the all-mountain versatility of a directional freeride board with signature Surf Series turn performance. Surfboard shaper Chris Christenson and Jeremy Jones designed this new model by combining the shape and profile of the current Storm Chaser and the retired Lone Wolf, hence the name. The Storm Wolf features a Surf Camber profile, long sidecut, mid-stiff flex, 3D Contour Base 3.0 and Traction Tech 3.5 edges. The Surf Camber profile, long sidecut and Traction Tech Edges keep you locked in railing turns at speed while the 3D Contour Base and tapered swallowtail shape help you break loose slashing gullies and transitions. To absorb chatter and punch through rough snow patches, the Storm Wolf construction includes new Flax/Basalt Power Stringers and an ECO-Plastic topsheet. New for 22/23, we moved the stance inserts up 20mm to allow for a more centered stance and improve carving performance.
Alternative all-mountain charger Ideal for creative freeriding and freestyle The Ultra Mind Expander is a super charged alternative all-mountain board designed for high speed slashing and freeriding. We stepped up the top speed of the playful Mind Expander by adding premium materials and a stiffer flex to the Ultra Mind Expander. The Surf Camber profile and Traction Tech 3.0 give the Ultra unmatched float and edge hold while the Ash wood veneer topsheet, Basalt Power stringers, Power Core and Triax Carbon Innegra suck up chatter in rough terrain. The Ultra shares the standard Mind Expander’s 3D Contour Base 3.0 and hybrid directional shape. The blunted nose, full size tail and tight sidecut offer the nimble maneuverability of a directional board matched with the freestyle abilities of a directional twin. For added speed and stance options, the Ultra Mind Expander has a smoking fast Sintered 9900 base, and new for 22/23, we moved the stance inserts up 20mm to allow a more centered stance and improve carving performance.
THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS The New PYL brings a new definition of all mountain riding. This new shape has the benefits of a longer edge hold while adding to the surface area of a wider shape. We blended the Hybrid versatility with the PYL’s big mountain profile. The coreless tail will allow the tail to sink more without losing the tortional stiffness. We’ve added some chakra windows to make this board your connection with your inner self. Tapered UnderBite delivers the directional drive and float of a tapered board without compromising edge hold or the ability to power out of turns that plagues most tapered boards.
Flyweight all-mountain razor Ideal for park, pipe and all-mountain charging The Project X is a hybrid all-mountain board that rides smooth and powerful like a luxury sports sedan. It is the same shape as the Stratos, but it’s built with ultralight, premium materials and Fusion Carbon construction. The tapered shape drops the tail in pow for more float and the 3D Contour Base, narrow sidecut and mid-stiff flex offer the perfect balance of turn performance and stability at speed. The directional rocker profile and Traction Tech 3.0 keep the Project X locked on edge accelerating into carves. The nose and tail sections of the Project X’s Ultra core are built with Koroyd, an ultralight composite material that is lighter than any wood, but super damp and durable. The Project X also features two layers of Carbon stringers for insane pop and Float Pack inserts that offer a setback stance option for the deepest days.
Only for the expert freerider Ideal for high speed freeriding and freeride competitions The Ultra Flagship is a seriously stiff, competition-ready freeride board designed to crush steep terrain at top speed. Built with Fusion Carbon construction, the Ultra Flagship features a 3D Contour Base 3.0, an Ash wood veneer topsheet plus multiple layers of carbon stringers that offer supreme stability at speed and eliminate chatter in rough snow. The Ultra Flagship’s tapered shape sinks the tail in pow for better float and quicker turns and the Traction Tech 3.0 edges deliver exceptional edge control. For supreme torsional response the Ultra Flagship’s Ultra Core has bamboo stringers along the edges, and for unmatched speed it’s built with our fastest Ultra Base that comes factory waxed with multiple wax types for better glide in variable snow temperatures.
