Slash Brainstorm Snowboard - Men's: Slightly setback and suited for steeps and storms. Storming the mountain with good vibes, the Brainstorm is a highly versatile, maneuverable, and capable directional twin for charging a bevy of conditions and terrain. The blend of tri-axial and biaxial fiberglass cloaks the core with a fluid flex. Beneath the surface lies a Buried Treasure blend of carbon fiber, Kevlar and basalt stringers underfoot for lightning-like response whether it's a simple slash, or hefty snap off the lip. The complex Forever Core is composed of four distinct woods (paulownia, spruce, beech and poplar) for a dynamic, durable and ultra lightweight build. The subtle Traction Bump mid-sidecut provides extra grip in firm snow and the setback camber profile offers rocker lift in the nose for shoveling through crust, chop and fresh slop. Top Layer: Tri-Ax Fiberglass -Tri-ax Fiberglass is a three-way weave of fiberglass with strands running at 45-degree angles. It provides superior pop, consistent torsional flex, and more overall response. Bottom Layer: Bi-Ax Fiberglass - Bi-ax Fiberglass is a two-way weave of fiberglass with strands running every 90-degrees. It's more forgiving, easier to flex and highly versatile for all terrain types. Forever Wood Core - Constructed from four different lightweight wood species-paulownia, spruce, beech and poplar-for a premium core that offers a highly tuned and dynamic feel. It's flyweight, durable, filled with pop and highly reactive. Buried Treasure - This is our ultimate truss of carbon, kevlar and basalt fibers. Stronger connecting fibers allow for a slimmer core and reduced weight. With our strategic placement this gives liveliness to the board by increasing responsiveness to the tips and leaving torsional softness between the feet. Progressive Sidecut - Our progressive sidecut design blends many radii and smooth contact points for buttery smooth turn initiation, edge-to-edge transition and edge hold. It's different for each model and matches the sidecut to the board's specific camber profile. Ultimate Traction - This small counter radius (bump) placed in the middle of the board's sidecut improves edge hold without creating drag or strange edge grip. It adds extra bite on ice and turns regular turns into confident carves. Sintered Base - This sintered base is fast, durable and requires less waxing. We believe in using the best possible materials and refrain from using cheaper, low-density extruded material our boards. Belt Finish - The belt finish gets your base optimized before it's fully waxed. Factory Waxed - All Slash boards are factory waxed with One-Ball Jay wax and ready to shred straight out of the wrapper.
