When you like to go big on just about everything, and have slightly bigger feet over 11. 5, the directional flex and a slightly setback stance of the Slash Brain Storm Wide Snowboard makes it, well, a no brainer. With the right blend of ingredients, the Brainstorm has the versatility needed to crush technical terrain just as well as it slays the park. Backseat CamRock profile boasts mellow camber underfoot for pop and precision, with rocker at the tips for a forgiving feel including a little more rocker at the nose to keep you afloat on pow days. Alternating poplar and beech stringers in the Snap Crackle Pop core provide strength and a lively feel, and spruce inlays in the nose and tail increase pop and response. Triax fiberglass keeps the board's torsional flex consistent throughout for a even response and predictable turns. It's reinforced with Sweet Spot carbon fiber stringers running from the tips to the binding inserts to increase pop without adding weight or stiffness. Serving up the grip you need to hold an edge on icy kickers and bulletproof groomers, Ultimate Traction uses one small, counter radius bump at the center of the sidecut to create an additional contact point. Aluminum tip and tail protectors shield your tips from dings, and cutouts at the tips decrease swing weight. The sintered 9900 base is the fastest material on the market, which means your friends will be playing catch up all day.
