Driving snowboard technology forward by using only the best materials available. Over engineered for top performance.
Custom Graphics Topsheet
Any graphic you want on your PiO2 textured topsheet. Pick one of our designs, one of our artists, or design your own graphic free of charge.
Strategic Top Composites
Full sheet of biaxial glass and strategically placed triaxial glass patches added underfoot to effective edge to give you added pop, durability, and torsional rigidity where you want it.
The only board in the world that can change shape on the mountain. Infinite adjustment to always ride with the best possible shape for your conditions. No compromising.
Impact Resistant Tipfill
UHMWPE is an extremely tough, wear-resistant plastic that has well over twice the impact strength of ABS, ensuring that the tips of your board will remain intact after years of abuse.
Shock Absorbing Polyurethane
Sidewalls that absorb vibrations and chatter for a smoother ride. Takes the energy from heavy rail impacts and ensures the board will not delaminate over time.
Hybrid Ultralight Core
All continuous planks for predictable flex and a board that is lighter than the competition. Strong poplar boards to reinforce bindings and sidewalls and ultralight paulownia everywhere else.
High modulus carbon reinforcements work in tension at calculated angles to increase torsional rigidity and transmit maximum energy from your binding to the effective edge without hitting yield stresses from large drops.
Custom Composite Choice
Choose your composite laminates to match the characteristics that best fit your riding style. Varying glass weights and fiber orientations available. Each board custom built per order.
Thin vulcanized rubber sheets used to account for serious side impacts, absorb chatter, increase board longevity, and decrease delamination over time.
Hardened steel edges with a polished sharp finish wrap the whole board. Traction points underfoot are slightly proud from the traditional sidecut and provide added pressure to cut through ice.
7500 One Piece Base
ISO 7500 sintered bases are some of the fastest available and have better wax retention than the extruded alternative. A single piece ensures base impacts do not pop out separate sections and a simple PTEX candle handles repairs.
