If you’re good with where you’re at snowboarding than don’t read this. It’s a waste of your time. If you’re always striving to be better, this is your only choice. The West Bound, the best board in town. The greatest profile in snowboarding snuck its way out of the Shaper Series and on to the best...on to the West. The West Bound features a new boss shape, a pinch of taper, and the Recluse Web Carbon Layup. A lot’s changed in the West. We now float better, carve better, maneuver better, we are better. POP?!? Like an exploding hot air ballon. Like a Crater Lake size stove top popcorn. Find your home in the West. West Bound my friend. *Base designs and colors may vary
Flex: Mid - Firm
Terrain: All Mountain
Shape: All Mountain Directional
Bend: Fusion Rocker Camber - Introducing Fusion RC. We put the edge gripping hold, the snap out of turns, and the huge pop of Ripsaw RC in the back and combined it with the float and surfy feel of Original RC in the front. Fusion is here to bring back the fun and fluidity that will make snowboarding dynamic again.
Fiberglass: STS Pretensioned Fiberglass - The world's best snowboard fiberglass, period. Our STS PRE-TENSIONED FIBERGLASS is an advanced pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate that has added elastomer stringers between the 0 degree and 90 degree glass fibers (the length of the effective edge). This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates giving our snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.
Bi-Lite Fiberglass - Combines many of the strength characteristics of our STS fiberglass with an ultra light glass fiber matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability
Sidecut: Power Grip Sidecut - Power Grip sidecut with Rocker Camber is the science of snowboarding perfected! Power Grip Sidecut utilizes multiple radiuses creating extra contact points to enhance edge hold.
Base: Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base - Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for our higher end boards. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the DURASURF XT SINTERED 5501 BASE the fastest we've ever used.
Core: NS Superlight Wood Core - Using a custom blend of wood species that was created to be the lightest weight yet durable core on the market. Our NS SUPERLIGHT WOOD CORE is CNC sanded in our custom wood working facility to a fraction of a millimeter. A tailored flex is perfected, giving our snowboards unequaled performance.
Recluse Web Carbon Layup - Strategically positioned to stiffen the board at the ends for edge hold pressure, spring, and stability. The Recluse Web Carbon Layup holds the integrity of the board's flex pattern over a longer period of time and creates powerful snap in and out of the turn
RDS 2 Damping System - This lightweight system uses three narrower laminated damping layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration, absorption, and stability. RDS 2 is the perfect balance of freeride stability and freestyle liveliness
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers - Directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high-speed stability while reducing foot fatigue
Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls - We were the first snowboard company to use and perfect SINTERED P-TEX SIDEWALLS, and we've never seen one crack. Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls, that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, Sintered P-tex Sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temperature.
P-Tex Tip/Tail Protection - Boards with P-TEX TIP/TAIL PROTECTION have UHMW Plastic, or P-Tex, which is a softer molecular material, that not only seals and protects the wood core, but also absorbs vibration and impact.
