Super lightweight stiffer directional twin. The One LF will shred it all fast and hard. Has mellow Magne-Traction, super lightweight and poppy core and is just fun as hell. The stiffness will keep you feeling secure at any speed! The wide stance of the board will help keep larger feet from toe dragging as well.

Sick all mountain freestyle deck that can ride anywhere from park to peak. Stiffer flex with camber between the feet for pop and snap and quick edge to edge meets rocker in the nose and tail to help with turn initiation and float in powder. Has Magne-Traction as well.

This thing is an East Coast resort all-mountain/freestyle killer. Stable enough to charge any terrain but playful enough for some presses and butters. Magnetraction will give you that edge hold on icy days which is huge out here. It’s got plenty of pop and is just as comfortable in the air as it is locking into a rail.

All-mountain freestyle ripping. C3 camber for excellent pop and response, with a mid fle to take it through any hit in the park. Tons of fun off side hits and carving groomers too!

DC Emb Snowboard · 2021

DC took their skateboarding lineup and brought a cruisy skatey style snowboard to the mountains. Going for power and stability you can have fun popping off natural features and practice looking steezy on the mountain! Lock and load camber gives a good base for stability and response. Steel sidewalls and poplar core gives you a mix of fun and play without sacrificing control. A slightly directional stance puts a little more board at the front so you can handle some of those deeper snow days at the resorts but still play around with switch riding.

Killer all mountain ripper from DC, the Emb is the Every Man's Board, whether you're just getting started to a seasoned vet and everywhere in between this guy gives you all you need to get out there an have fun, whether it's the park or anywhere else on the hill. Equipped with Traditional camber and a directional twin shape, you get a bit of float in the deep goodies, along with tons of response to rip park and a bit rougher terrain. Pair that up with a mid flex and you'll have a great time! Park laps, urban riding, resort rippin, you name it the Emb has ya covered.

Sick all-mountain/freestyle deck from Rome. A true twin that will shine anywhere on the mountain. The Rocker/Camber/Rocker profile will give you the best of both profiles. Pop off kickers and float in the pow! Medium flex for a great balance of stability and maneuverability. Anything and everything. Classified as an all-mountain/freestyle deck but capable of going through anywhere. Rome's "stomp core" is super stable and durable. This board will last you many seasons!

The Rome Men's Agent can ride anywhere from park to peak! 5/10 flex with a fusion camber profile for increased response and edge hold. True twin, so this board can easily ride switch and it's got a good amount of pop for those side hits. Rocker in the tip and tail gives you added float on those pow days!
