Designed for the nomadic in nature, The Shepherd is a fine tuned extension of body and mind, a vehicle to express creativity in the wild. Its lightweight body is for those who want to reach the next ridge on the horizon while preserving energy for the descent. Couloirs, steep pitches and spines, the Shepherd inspires confidence in serious terrain, as well as adaptability wherever you may roam.. Directional camber, an early rise nose, deep sidecut, and a healthy dose of taper delivers a quick and nimble attitude to flow with the mountains and into the unknown. Equipped with our Algal Core and Algal Wall materials, you’ll also get excellent stability when it matters most. Break trail aboard the Shepherd and realize your destiny.
The Shepherd is your tool and spiritual guide for big mountain endeavors. Developed by Nick Russell, this board shares the same shape and dimensions as its split counterpart. Utilizing purpose-built biobased materials derived from microalgae oil to increase damping, stability and confidence while in the high alpine. Our Algal Core and Algal Wall allow this board to flow naturally through any mixed terrain that you may find. Its deep sidecut, taper, and directional camber enable responsive edge hold on steeper terrain, and maintain power and energy in deep snow. Set your line and let it ride with the Shepherd.
The newly updated BelleTour was developed for high peaks, big lines, pillow popping, and everything in between. This application of our biobased Algal Core and Algal Wall in a split provides symbiosis between you and your big mountain pursuits. A wider waist, slight swallowtail, and medium sidecut integrate to create a shape that floats and planes as well as it pivots. Designed to optimize stiffness and performance for both touring and descending, you’ll be tagging lines no matter the conditions.
The newly updated BelleAire is here to satisfy your love for the downhill. Inspired by its split sibling in shape, this board is for those seeking a different high. Whether you’re tackling your favorite side hits, fresh groomers, or holstering the board to your back on the deepest of days, the BelleAire’s purpose-built biobased materials increase damping and stability while keeping the weight low and the froth tanks full. A mid-wide waist, medium side cut, and directional camber allow this board to arc big turns with confidence, while maintaining effortless floatation and edge hold at speed. Life is Belle!
Breathing life and joy into the alpine sufferfest, The Nocturne’s minimal weight allows you to go the distance, but features more freeride oriented geometry. The slightly rockered tails, progressive mount point and medium turn radius enables a freeride-inspired approach to technical terrain. The aluminum tail block shape is designed to easily penetrate stubborn snowpack on a techy skin track or when you’re setting up a ski anchor. Aided by our stability-enhancing Algal Core and Algal Wall, these attributes facilitate balanced hop turns and swift descents from distant places.
All new for 23/24, The Vital 98 pays homage to its predecessor by improving upon its precise, stable, and award-winning platform. We further optimized its strength-to-weight ratio and tightened the turn radius for added engagement when you need it most. By slightly increasing the Vital’s tip stiffness and extending the running surface, stability at speed has been improved. The inclusion of our Spiral Plate creates a more even flex from tip to tail, while the Algal Core and Algal Wall reduce weight and vibration. An updated tail block improves tail clip retention and easily punches through stubborn layers in the snowpack - a massive benefit to anchor building or tail jab kick turns in steep terrain.
The multiple award-winning Intention 108 is our most stable platform for ascending from treeline to alpine, playing amongst featured terrain, arcing down the apron or adapting to terrain and snowpack inconsistencies. The ski’s mid-range sidecut enables quick turn initiation with a side of forgiveness. The consistent tip to tail flex profile delivers a high top speed, and the advanced biobased materials used throughout the ski work to absorb vibration, maintain stability, and boost any skier’s confidence when it comes time to descend the line you’ve been dreaming of.
The Reason 120 is our widest shape, designed for flotation first and foremost, but with plenty of materials science wizardry up its sleeve to excel in many environments. Its medium flex, tighter sidecut, and smooth rocker profile integrate beautifully with our stability-enhancing Algal Core and Algal Wall, creating a buoyant backcountry tool that’s deceptively capable in a wide range of snow conditions.
