DON’T CALL ME A POW BOARD, POW BOARD
The Hovercraft is an alternative freeride board who’s nimble maneuverability and diverse performance has earned it a cult following. The unique shape matched with a directional rocker profile, Traction Tech 3.0 and a long sidecut allows the Hovercraft to float through any snow plus rail turns of any size. With a blunt nose, a short stiff tail, and a wide waist width, the Hovercraft is designed to be ridden shorter then your average freeride board as the compact shape packs serious surface area in a small package. The Hovercraft features a 3D Contour Base 4.0 with spooned nose+tail edges for improved float plus a speed channel in the tail for added glide. New for 2020, the Hovercraft is built with an Engineered Veneer topsheet.
A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.
My experience is that most falls in freeriding start from the nose of the board – you either go over the bars in powder, the nose gets caught under a weird crust and tosses you, or you hit a hard tranny at the contact point of the tip and get bucked. Directional Rocker eliminates most of these falls. — Jeremy Jones
Like a serrated knife slicing into the snow, Traction Tech improves your edge grip by adding multiple contact points along the running length of your board.
Traction Tech is a critical feature for rockered boards. Rocker improves glide in mixed conditions, but the decreased edge contact makes it harder to really lock
into your turns and hold a solid edge. Traction Tech is crucial to offset the edge drift of rocker. — Jeremy Jones
Next level technology for ultimate response
Glide. Flow. Float.
3D Contour Bases are designed to make every run smoother and every turn more effortless by reducing the drag of the board tips. 3D Contour Bases enhance glide and improve float helping you ride faster and with better flow.
I’ve been on a quest to design a snowboard that offers the friction free glide and edge-to-edge fluidity of a surfboard for years. 3D Contour bases finally cracked the code on how to achieve this next level of board performance. Jeremy Jones
