The ThunderStorm is built for high energy resort riding and turbo-charged powder descents. A directional ride that has no problem going switch, the ThunderStorm is a true hybrid 3D Freeride board that can still do Freestyle with ease. This board is part of our genderless collection and is available in a large array of lengths to accommodate riders of all sizes.
Bend:Low Camber - Camber profiles are defined from low to high. Higher camber make for more dynamic boards that need to be ridden more aggressively to get maximum performance. Lower camber boards are smoother on lower speeds and in powder. All camber profiles run from nose to tail. Higher is not always better...
Shape: Directional - On our more freeride orientated boards the center base is at its most narrow and the uplift is at its highest this creates unparalleled float in pow super fast edge-to-edge transitioning.
High and Medium 3BT+Sidekick - The gradual side base uplift in the nose determines how the board will behave on snow. most effected are the edge to edge performance and the uplift generated when riding powder. The gradual side base uplift in the tail determines how the board will behave on snow. Any amount of uplift brings all the benefits of Triple Base Technology making our boards more versatile then others.
Core: Light Core - 50/50 Paulownia and poplar creates a balanced core that’s lively yet strong.
Fiberglass: Triax Laminates - Our three-way fiberglass weave is light, strong and crazy responsive. We use this to beef up the flex pattern on our more aggressive boards.
Base: Ultra Glide S - A premium, 7000-grade sintered base reserved for our high-end models. Packing more molecules into the P-tex means it’s super tough and hauls ass.
Solid Walls Sidewalls -We use tried and trusted ABS sidewalls for most of the collection. For the best flex to strength ratio.
D.S.T. Super Tubes - Dual Super Tubes, a Super Tube on either side of the board enhances pop and gives the camber more snap.
Carbon Stringers - Our tried and tested carbon layups. We deploy them in different areas to fine-tune the feel of each model.
+2 Backseat Inserts - Backseat inserts are an set of extra inserts 4cm behind the bottom inserts. This allows you to set your bindings all the way back, so you can keep floating on those deep pow days. By shifting your weight more back on the board the nose stays up and the pressure on you back leg is reduced.
Sidekick - SideKick™ builds on the concept of Triple Base by increasing the sidebase uplift just outside the widest points of the nose and tail. The tips become more like a hull, boosting float in deep snow and slicing through crud. It also helps the board to roll quickly and evenly from edge to edge.
