Snowboard contact profiles

HYPER CAMBER

Power. Pop. Response. For maximum edge to edge performance and stability through the rough stuff there is no substitute for traditional camber.  This most versatile of our contact profiles will never go out of style. You will find it trouhgout our entire collectio

JIB ROCKER

HOT ROCKER

A continuous Rocker from the center of the board to the ends of the contact length, this is a great jib friendly freestyle focused profile.

gruvlite

 

Performance benefit:

Reduces weight and creates a softer flex on tip to tip wood cores for increased maneuverability and complete performance enhancement.

 

How it works:

GruvLite is a linear reduction technology that is applied to a traditional wood core. By reducing the core’s material volume through this innovative technique we are able to reduce weight and increase flex, without sacrificing pop, or the board’s tip to tail strength.

flexlite

 

Performance benefit:

FlexLite increases flexibility while decreasing weight and maintaining strength for fun forgiving performance.

 

How it works:

Flexlight is a special lightweight material developed for use in combination with wood stringers and composite elements to construct our Response LT series of cores. This advanced material allows the Response LT Composite Core series to deliver enhanced performance that is smooth, fun, and perfect for a wide range of riders and terrain.

DG TOP

 

Performance benefit:

DG Top Technology allows Elan to produce the lightest snowboards on the market year after year while giving them increased pop and reduced weight for added support and maneuverability.

 

How it works:

This unique graphic application technique allows us to print directly onto the board’s top laminate layer without using additional top surface materials. By providing up to 12% in weight reduction compared to standard constructions, Advanced DG Top Technology is the foundation for building the world’s lightest boards.

omega sidecut

 

Performance benefit:

Delivers patented catch free performance and quick edge-to-edge response that is perfect for every freestyle situation.

 

How it works:

This design features a combination of a smaller radius sidecut in the middle of the board’s effective edge, with a larger radius sidecut blended into the wide points of the tip and tail. This reduces the wide points, while keeping the width through the waist of the board, and enhances overall control by improving the transfer of energy from edge to edge while retaining stability.
