Slash by GIGI Straight Split 162 wide 2021
The Slash Straight features a Backseat Camrock camber profile and set back shape to let you steer from the rear and plow through fresh snow. This board is part of a trinity called: Freeride Quiver Line. They all have larger noses for ample float and their subtle rocker from the front binding forward makes it easy to keep the tips up. Their tail’s mild swallowtail shape and slight rocker naturally sinks for an easier, more balanced riding position in steep and deep terrain.
The backseat camrock design places rocker in the nose and a slight amount in the tail with positive camber in between. This setback design delivers camber stability and control between the feet and in the tail, with the added float and maneuverability of the rockered nose.
Built with poplar and bolstered with beech and spruce stringers. Beech hardwood strips are laid through the inserts from tip to tail for power transfer and a sturdy frame. The spruce from tip to tail just outside the inserts adds increased pop and precision.
This is our ultimate truss of carbon, kevlar and basalt fibers. Stronger connecting fibers allow for a slimmer core and reduced weight. With our strategic placement this gives liveliness to the board by increasing responsiveness to the tips and leaving torsional softness between the feet.
Strips of kevlar and carbon fiber placed from the inserts to the tips in the nose and tail to support landings and reduce washouts. This design also helps dampen high-speed chatter, offer stability at speed and load up potent ollies.
This sintered base is fast, durable and requires less waxing. We believe in using the best possible materials and refrain from using cheaper, low-density extruded material our boards.
Tri-ax fiberglass is a three-way weave of fiberglass with strands running at 45-degree angles. It provides superior pop, consistent torsional flex, and more overall response.
Bi-ax fiberglass is a two-way weave of fiberglass with strands running every 90-degrees. It’s more forgiving, easier to flex and highly versatile for all terrain types.
A predictable and powerful sidecut with a single radius that makes for consistent turns. It’s ideal for intermediate and advanced riders who already know how to carve a turn, like to ride fast, and desire strong edge hold.
This small counter radius (bump) placed in the middle of the board’s sidecut improves edge hold without creating drag or strange edge grip. It adds extra bite on ice and turns regular turns into confident carves.
