Venture Snowboards Odin SnowboardSTYLE # ODIN14
A big mountain quiver of one, the Odin is the result of a close collaboration between legendary rider Johan Olofsson and Venture's founder and design engineer, Klemens Branner. Dubbed Odin after the Norse god of war and wisdom, this deck is a nod to its creators' Viking roots and embodies core concepts of Scandinavian design like simplicity of form and function. Tailored to Olofsson's riding style and preffered terrain, the Odin is the ideal choice for hard charging freeriders who like to pull out all the stops. Moderate sidecut delivers wide arching turns, quadratics bring plenty of grip, and a perfect combination of rocker and stance offset maximize float. Named a Backcountry Magazine Editors' Choice in 2012, and Men's Journal approved in 2013. Unleash the power of the Odin in the gnarliest conditions and watch it dominate.
FEATURES:Flex 9Triaxial Fiberglass: torsional stiffness is the key to good edge hold, especially on a rockered board. With fibers are aligned with the direction of torsional stress, triaxial fiberglass is the best material for the job.Handmade FSC Core: by making its own poplar/ash composite cores, Venture produce lightweight boards without sacrificing durability, resilience, or performance. Poplar lends lightweight strength, while ash provides impact resistance and durability. Ash strips are incorporated at the edge and under the inserts, where impact and stress are greatest. Full length wood laminates: no finger joints and no off axis grains ensure even an consistent flex from tip to tail, and a core that won't break down over time.Flat between the bindings with a mellow uplift on the tip and tail, Venture's rockered shapes offer increased maneuverability and floatation without sacrificing stability or edge hold. In other words, you get the surfy playful freedom between turns combined with solid edge hold when you are in the turn. As usual, the simplest solution is the best.Quadratic Sidecut help distribute pressure evenly on the snow, resulting in increased stability. They load the board further from the waist than circular/radial sidecuts, enabling you to achieve smooth, solid turnsThe Odin features a full wrap steel edge on each board halfComes with the Voile hooks/clips: super tight alignment in ride mode translates into enhanced performance and that ''solid board feel'' Venture is known for.P-Tex Sidewall is tough-as-nails material increases the life of the board so it can be ridden for several seasons without a loss in performance.Durasurf sintered base means fewer gouges from rocks, and better wax absorption for a slick, fast ride. No other base material comes close to its speed without significantly sacrificing durability.Ability Level: Advanced-ExpertRocker Type: Rocker/Flat/RockerFlex Rating: Very StiffCore/Laminates: WoodMade in the USA
