The DC Devun Walsh Pro Snowboard is designed for someone with a passion for powder. Featuring the all new Micro Camber rocker style, this powerful board will give you all the pop you could ask for while still allowing you to float through the snow with ease. With the new Brew Crew Collection graphics on the DC Devun Walsh Pro Snowboard you are sure to be keeping this Canadian Logger Lager chilled all season long
Micro Camber - Flat through the center and has a 1.5mm of positive camber in the tip and tail which allows for the pop and feel of a full camber board while maintaining the forgiveness and powder float of a flat board
(1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - 8, The stiffness of this board gives you more drive and edge hold making it more stable at high speeds.
True Twin Shape - Completely symmetrical with identical tip and tail measurements and flex pattern ideal for terrain parks because of the ability to ride in either direction
Radius 2 Flat - Flat surfaces at the tip and tail of the board provide lift in powder to keep you floating in the deepest snow, while the radius blends in perfectly with the sidecut to create effortless transitions from edge to edge.
Camber Core - Allows a rocker board to have the same pop and stability of camber but maintain the fun and surfy feel of rocker by adding a unique arch shaped profile to the wood core within the Anti-Camber zones
Slugger Core - Solid poplar core, then inserted pre-bent ash hardwood stringers that follow the board edge to increase durability, dampen vibration, and stabilize the board
Carbon Quadrax - Consists of four directions of glass fibers woven tightly together giving the board a smooth and stable ride and dual carbon fiber bands which run from tip to tail giving you maximum power and control
Structurn Base - Small dimples in the base break water tension to allow your board to glide faster, turn easily and allow you to ride longer.
7200 Sintered Supreme Base - A high density sintered base that is durable, firm and fast: the porous surface allows easy absorption of wax, meaning longer lasting tune-ups.
Fresh Deck Topsheet - Adds a snap and life to the board that you can only get from natural wood

The Lib Tech Travis Rice is an all-mountain charger that tracks perfectly through the pipe, is snappy in and out of turns, glides in powder and fires off jumps.
C2 POWER BANANA CAMBER / BANANA BLEND (C2 BTX):
Travis Rices favorite blend for aggressive power snowboarders pushing the envelope. Rocker between your feet blended with a radial camber to contact points. Focuses pressure between your feet for easy turns, great edge hold on ice and a solid amount of pressure to the tip and tails for power end-to-end stability, pop and maximum control in critical situations while maintaining float.
Magne-Traction serrated edges cut into the snow like a knife giving you more edge hold and control than ever before. Magne-Traction features 7 strategically located and sized bumps along each side of your sidecut. The Biggest bumps are at and between your feet where your balance is centered adding maximum control and power where you need it most. The bumps outside your feet are smaller and less aggressive providing tip and tail control but maintaining freestyle freedom. Magne-Traction is wiggles that work. Viva Technology.
MAGNE-TRACTION FREESTYLE ADVANTAGE:
One of the best things about Magne-Traction is that the extra edge hold you get allows you to ride your board de-tuned for the park and rails and still get great edge hold all over the mountain. Take a file and round your edges so they dont hang up on the rails, boxes, or ledges. Then go ride everywhere!
Absolutely perfect twin geometry, tried and true science with MTX, or the added advantage of new Banana Technology and or Camber Combo.
SINTERED UHMW BASE MATERIAL:
Super tough base material that holds wax well due to its compression formed amorphous polymer structure. Super fast when waxed with Oneballjay.
SUPER LIGHT SPIN WEIGHT! The perfect blend of pickles and mustard. UHMW sidewalls, Power Transfer Internal Sidewalls, torsionally loose. The new kids think they are new!
DOUBLE SINTERED UHMW SIDEWALLS:
A Lib Tech innovation. Twice as sintered as any other sidewall. Tough, handsome and light.
Wood Alloy Core. Experimental new dead tree with the highest compression response ever used in a snowboard. It has half the glue weight and absorbs less resin weight. Another industry first for Lib Tech.
ExperiMENTAL division leader Mike Olson loves beans! When hes not eating them hes buying plastics made with them. Lib Tech has made a commitment to using a new earth friendly, bio-plastic top skin made from beans that features the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any top sheet in the industry.
POWER TRANSFER INTERNAL SIDEWALLS:
The same futuristic power 90º pop technology from our world record setting skateboards and power transfer spines only this time we have placed it along the sidewall of your board to add board control to our sandwich construction. Stronger, more pop, and more control brought to you by our Woodshop!
ultra lightweight freestyle performance, that rips in the park and that uses the whole mountain as a playground. Delta light baseplate, contact pad interface, rebound heel absorber, contour highback, hyperlight ankle strap, hyperflex convertible toe strap, Mac 4 buckles, classic disc.
Ride makes plenty of boards for the serious all-mountain and kicker/pipe rider; but what about those snowboards who just want to jib around and have fun with their friends? Well the Crush fits perfectly into that category; its lightweight, has a soft longitudinal and lateral flex and has plenty of pop at low speeds. If you dont take snowboarding too seriously and your ideal day is lapping the park and piste with a few friends then definitely check this board out. Beginner and intermediate riders looking for a board to progress their freestyle moves should definitely take a closer look.
Rides exclusive Slimewalls® are forgiving and ductile, absorbing impacts rather than defending against them. Just like your skate wheels, the urethane in Slimewalls® smoothes the interaction with the snow, wood or metal surfaces you may Ride on. On top of all that, these babies are virtually indestructible, the most durable sidewalls in snowboarding.
A twin rockered shape that just lifts the contact points out of the snow and has a nearly flat zone under foot.
Weighing less than half of traditional plastic top sheets, Membrain® maintains a smooth feel by infusing urethane into fabric. Along with pushing limits in the world of lightweight, this process also allows us to push the boundaries when it comes to graphics by utilizing the textures and aesthetics associated with a variety of fabrics.
For those riders that want to tear-apart their snowboard parks rail line with a variety of impossible transfers, bonks, combo manuals and tweaked-out presses the Draft is the super soft sponge board for the job. Just make sure you can stomp your landings with both feet over the bolts or the Draft will wash-out. A street-specific rocker board for riders whose focus is park and urban jibs: rails, boxes, stumps, wall rides, etc.; the Draft is the perfect platform for spinning, pressing, bonking, and buttering your way through life.
SB-RV heaped praise on the Nitro Team Series Gullwing last season. It is light, has tons of pop and a seriously fast sintered base. For riders whose ability is a little above intermediate; charging is no issue, riding switch is no biggie and hitting the 8m+ tables in the park is all part of a days riding then the Gullwing is a solid all-mountain choice. Off-piste, marked trails, park runs and urban rail sessions, you name it the Nitro Team Series Gullwing will slay it.
GULLWING TECHNOLOGY ROCKER CAMBER WITH A BITE:
A hybrid camber profile in a league of its own, Gullwing offers the best of both worlds for the all mountain destroyer. The positive camber under each foot supplies riders with the response they know and love while the Gullwing shape in the center allows you to experience unparalleled float in the powder as well as superb press-ability in the par
SINTERED SPEED FORMULA BASE QUICK AND TOUGH:
F%#Kn fast, strong and low-maintenance, the high molecular compound and hyperglide wax additives push our pros to go bigger than ever.
POWER CORE PERFORMANCE DRIVEN:
Our Powercore uses tip-to-tail poplar wood, providing lightweight strength and the perfect blend of flex, response and feel.
The K2 World Wide Weapon or WWW for short is the original park rats jib noodle. The World Wide Weapons famous blunted tips give it a short board length and comparatively long effective edge a great combination for improving board nimbleness and reducing swing weight whilst maintaining a reasonable amount of edge hold. The soft flex and reverse camber of the WWW makes pressing and buttering so easy its got to be cheating and make it surprisingly fun for messing about in the pow. Not a board you want to aim up an icy pipe wall or point down a gnarly couloir and i definitely wouldnt recommend it to an all-mountain rider but a good choice for those addicted to rail and jib riding.
The Weapon has been pushing rider creativity on jibs for over a decade. Originally designed by the Robot Food era K2 team, the Weapon was created as a platform for progression and originality. A style carried on by rider like Nick Dirks and Jake Kuzyk.
Jib Rocker - THE FREESTYLE SOLUTION:
Jib Rocker is a versatile twin Rocker built to dominate the park. Just enough rise in the tip and tail to create a loose, buttery feel on all types of terrain. Contact points stay well off the snow until engaged eliminating edge hook while maintaining fun pop.
