What’s Inside

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.

Adjustable Camber

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.

Calculated Carbon

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.

VDS Rubber

Thin vulcanized rubber sheets used to account for serious side impacts, absorb chatter, increase board longevity, and decrease delamination over time.

Full-Wrap Edges

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.

Camber Configurations

Full Camber

For full camber, completely loosen both screws until your indicator stops moving, then slightly tighten the screws so that they do not vibrate loose. This setup will give you the best edge hold, hands down.

Mid Camber

Start to tighten each screw from the full camber configuration until each one is somewhere mid-way between the first two indicators. This configuration gives excellent rebound on turns, but will prevent catching edges better than the full camber configuration.


For a flat setup, tighten both screws until your indicator is on the center line and use a flat surface to get it perfect. This is a great versatile configuration that offers a balance between responsiveness and forgiveness.

Full Rocker

For full rocker, completely tighten both screws until you start to feel resistance. The indicator should stop just short of the dash closest to the center. This setup will provide the easiest riding and most playful board. Use this in the heaviest snow.

Mid S Curve

For a directional Mid S Curve configuration adjust tighten your front side so that it is just past the middle indicator. Tighten your back side so that it is mid way between the full camber and flat indicator. This directional shape will provide great all mountain performance if you don’t plan on riding switch.

Full S Curve

For Full S Curve configuration you want to tighten your front end until you feel resistance. This should be just short of the indicator closest to the center of the board. Just barely tighten the back screw so that it does not vibrate loose. This is a fun directional configuration that gives you tons of lift through the powder but the camber in the back will allow you really lean back into those deep powder turns.

The Stiffness Guide

We offer 4 build types that cater to rider preferences for board stiffness. The 4 types are determined by different fiberglass weights, placement, and fiber orientation.


This is our most playful and forgiving flex profile. Great for lighter riders and smaller boards. Butter and press all day long.

Stiffness: Standard Soft & Playful Stiff & Aggressive


This flex profile is for riders who know what they want and are trying to get away from a playful board and into a more aggressive ride. This profile favors bigger lines and higher speeds.
