Side Hit Euphoria™ has generally been considered an enlightened state. Understood as real on a conceptual level, yet intangible to most that lack an understanding of the methodology required to produce such an experience.
Now, the existential joy of enhanced board control and massive ollie-pops is attainable to all. The all-new Aeronaut series was designed in collaboration with The Rocket Man, Arthur Longo. The goal: to introduce the local-resort maximizer. The result: a semi-old school, respectful nod to the 90s; a directional, cambered snowboard that can meet the most demanding all-mountain pursuits your resort has to offer.
With high-grade components like a HyperDrive™ ADV base, Amplitex V-TECH Amplifiers, and a lightweight and extremely durable Panda Hover Core™, the Aeronaut has the power to charge through terrain at high speeds and pop off any enticing features.
The ALPINE V3 profile has a deeper traditional camber that zeros out before the end of the sidecut. The small zero camber sections provide a more controlled ride while retaining the response and power of a throwback cambered board.
