The Algernon

150 | 154 | 157 | 160W

THE ULTIMATE GOAL FOR OUR FIRST BOARD WAS NOT-SO-SIMPLE: ENGINEER A BOARD THAT EXCELS IN ALL CONDITIONS - FROM CRUST TO FLUFF - AND FOR ALL RIDERS, FROM ALASKAN CHARGERS TO PROGRESSIVE FREESTYLERS. BY APPLYING YEARS OF MATERIAL R&D AND TEAM RIDER FEEDBACK IN SKATEBOARDING, WE'VE CREATED A TRULY UNIQUE SNOWBOARD: THE ALGERNON.

NOW FOR THE DETAILS. THE ALGERNON INCORPORATES A CUSTOM LOADED BAMBOO CORE THAT IS RUN FROM TIP TO TAIL AND EDGE TO EDGE WITHOUT ADDITIONAL MATERIALS, STRINGERS OR SIDEWALLS. THE ELIMINATION OF SIDEWALLS REDUCES WEIGHT, ALLOWS FOR RELIABLE FLEX AND A SNAPPY, UNINTERRUPTED EDGE TO EDGE FEEL.

BAMBOO PROVIDES THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF RESPONSIVENESS AND DAMPENING, RESULTING IN A SMOOTH YET UNIQUELY LIVELY RIDE. HAND INLAYED CORK FOOTBEDS FURTHER REDUCE VIBRATION AND COMPLEMENT THE BAMBOO AESTHETICALLY.

THE ALGERNON SHAPE IS DIRECTIONAL, YET TWIN BETWEEN THE WIDE POINTS WITH A SLIGHTLY LONGER NOSE FOR POWDER. THE PROFILE IS OUR MUSTACHE CAMBER, A SUBTLE COMBINATION OF CAMBER AND EARLY RISE ALLOWING FOR SOLID EDGE HOLD, POWERFUL SNAP,AND AN INTUITIVE FEEL WHILE BEING LESS CATCHY THAN A TRADITIONAL CAMBER.

THE STANCE IS CENTERED ON THE SIDECUT WITH THE ADDITION OF EXTRA BINDING INSERTS FOR A VERY SET BACK RIDING POSITION PERFECT FOR POWDER. YOU CAN HIT THE STEEP AND DEEP IN THE MORNING AND LAP THE PARK IN THE AFTERNOON ALL WITH THE SAME BOARD.

THE ALGERNON COMES HAND SHARPENED AND DE-TUNED WITH ONE BALL JAY BIO-WAX.

SIZING STRATEGY


BUILDING A SNOWBOARD FROM SCRATCH ALLOWED US TO DEVELOP A NEW SIZING SYSTEM FOR THE ALGERNON. TYPICALLY, BOARDS ARE DESIGNED FOR A SPECIFIC RIDER, USUALLY A PRO, AND THEN SCALED UP AND DOWN FROM THAT TEMPLATE. WE CREATED A FORMULA CONSIDERING BOOT SIZE, STANCE WIDTH AND RIDER WEIGHT AND THEN APPLIED THIS TO EACH INDIVIDUAL BOARD SIZE: ESSENTIALLY CREATING FOUR UNIQUE BOARDS THAT ALL RIDE EXACTLY AS CALCULATED FOR THE RESPECTIVE RIDER.
