How complicated can snowboards really be? They need a wood core, some fiberglass, a turn-happy feel -- a touch of rocker doesn't hurt for that -- and some metal edges, right? But when you're building up your first snowboard, you want to make sure that the board you go with treats you right; and whether your a seasoned vet or a newcomer looking to get beyond the bunny hill, the Flow Venus Snowboard will make you feel like your snowboarding future is bright.
EZ-Rock A hybrid of very subtle reverse camber profile with a convex base between the bindings, and camber starting before the binding zones provides stability. This makes pressing easy and improves agility no matter where you place your bindings.
Flex Rating 3 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) Soft flex for the progressing and lighter weight riders out there.
Directional Twin Equal amount of nose and tail and a centered sidecut but featuring a set back insert pattern and core profile. Allows the rider equal opportunity for centered or setback set up.
EZ 3-D Dual Transitional Sidecut Smooth with tons of grip, the 3-D Transitional Sidecut is uniquely different between the feet. Mellow tips and aggressive radius in the binding areas gives unlimited grip for an overall smooth, agile ride.
Tru-Flex Core High strength-to-weight ratio utilizing uniquely profiled poplar wood to give you excellent all-around response in any condition.
Biaxial Laminate The special configuration of biaxial glass design creates a smooth yet responsive feel and provides longitudinal pop and torsional freedom for easier turns and a naturally easy riding board. Some models have seven strands of vertically stitched carbon stringers.
Kush-Control Sidewall A urethane sidewall is fused directly to the wood core to reduce vibration, absorb impacts, increase edge hold, and create a smooth riding snowboard.
Optix 2000 The Optix 2000 base is a low maintenance base with great strength and speed. Feel confident when ripping past your friends.
Kush-Control Base The urethane base inserts are positioned between the wood core and base material. These inserts allow flow boards to adapt to any terrain, absorb impacts, reduce chatter, and provide a smoother more stable riding experience.
