The Element is a technically advanced all-mountain board for riders who readily transition from one terrain, snow condition, or riding style to another. Its balanced design provides the versatility needed for the true ride-it-all experience. The Element is very lively, freely initiates, and holds a tight edge at high speeds. Its structural real-wood topsheet is made with book-matched Hoa.
The Element is made with full-length real-wood top-sheets. The structural wood-top gives each board that custom old-school look, while improving performance and durability. The wood-top acts like a third layer of fiberglass. Resin locks the dense natural fibers into place turning the top-sheet into a structural layer. As a result, the wood-top boards are built lighter and end up stronger and more responsive.
CARBON FIBER STRUT
Inlaying carbon fiber down the center of a board creates a compression strut that livens up a board’s longitudinal flex without messing with turn/spin initiation and release, or landing recoverability.
SIDEWALL CONSTRUCTION SINTERED P-TEX
Pioneered by Never Summer, P-tex sidewalls provide maximum durability and edge control.
These metallic elements, when combined and blended into a base material, help eliminate speed reducing static electricity that is generated between a board and snow while in motion. Both elements also help conduct heat from a base, improving the friction ratio and further increasing speed in all types of snow.
QUAD-DIRECTIONAL FIBERGLASS LAY-UP
A balanced, more responsive flex pattern is achieved in wood-top boards by blending biax and triax fiberglass into a quad-directional lay-up. This quad-directional lay-up compliments the structural wood topsheet layer used on these boards.
