Designed for airtime, jib presses, and transitional butters between features, you’ll be vibing anytime you strap into the Slash Happy Place Snowboard.
Slash Happy Place Snowboard DETAILS
Camrock – The CAMROCK design is very playful. The narrow contact points and the lifted tips make the board easy to turn. We added flat spots outside the bindings toward the tip and tail which give you all the pop you need to ollie over anything that lies in your path. The camber between your feet gives you stability and responsiveness in all conditions and terrain types
Flex Rating: 4 (1 Soft – 10 Stiff) – The most versatile flex that is both forgiving and fun but stable and responsive at high speeds.
Progressive Sidecut – The sidecut consists of a progressive radius that makes the contact points of the board more prevalent for smooth turns.
Ultimate Traction – A small counter radius bump placed in the middle of the board’s sidecut results in improved edge hold. In translation, you get more grip on hardpack and ice without needing to put in as much effort, thus reducing fatigue.
Slick Tip Profile – By reducing the wood thickness and removing the ABS parts at the nose and tail, the board becomes significantly lighter and dampens vibrations.
Pop Core – A blend of Poplar and Beechwood give the board strength and liveliness. Four-stringers of Spruce added to the tail and nose enhance turning precision and amplify pop.
Biax Fiberglass – The 0-90 biax fiberglass laminate strengthens the snowboard making it a versatile and strong deck.
Sweet Spot – Two criss-crossed strips of carbon fibers are placed underneath the bindings. This configuration drastically increases pop, strength and makes for a playful ride.
Sintered Base + Factory Wax – Mega-fast sintered bases are highly wax absorbent, dense, durable and strong. This base will perform best when waxed regularly. The deck comes pre-waxed with OneBallJay
Die-Cut Base – Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
Tip Protectors – Thin, light and surprisingly strong. Aluminum guards protect the board from impact.
