Venture Storm Splitboard Snowboard 161 Length 25 Waist WidthSTYLE # STORM SPLIT 161-25
The Storm was developed in conjunction with the team at Silverton Mountain, and like all Venture boards, it gets refined every year based on rider feedback. For 2015 we re blending aspen with poplar and ash, allowing us to simultaneously trim about a half-pound off each board without compromising flex and durability. This stout- yet-nimble deck dominates all that the baddest mountain in the lower 48 has to offer: big lines, closeout lines, and of course...fresh lines. It s chatter proof when bombing open steeps, agile in tight trees, and navigates narrow chutes without flinching. Moderate taper and a softer nose provide float in the fresh, while a meaty midsection and tail lend stability and control. (Please note: base colors vary.)
FEATURES:SEAMLESS SPLIT TECHNOLOGY: Simply put, Venture builds their splitboards to ride like solid boards. Venture's splitboard craftsmanship is unmatched: they have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to slop between the inner edges and imprecise hardware placement.STRAIGHT-LINE ROCKER Venture s entire line features our proprietary Straight-Line Rocker technology. This special formula follows a linear path underfoot, with mellow rise starting just outside the inserts. Ventures offer the best of both worlds--a playful, surfy ride in soft snow, but plenty of control and edge grip when you need it.COLORADO CORE: New for 14/15, Venture devevloped a proprietary aspen/poplar/ash core, shaving up to a half-pound off every board. The aspen is sourced less than 100 miles from Venture's Silverton factory. Poplar and ash stringers reinforce high-stress zones for max durability.P-TEX SIDEWALL and BASE: For bombproof durability, all Venture boards come with rugged sintered P-Tex sidewallas. Venture Durasurf sintered base glides fast as a race board and deflects all but the gnarliest of core shots.TRIAXIAL FIBERGLASS: Torsional fles is the key to good edgehold - especially on a rockered board. With fibers aligned in the direction of torsional stress, triaxial fiberglass is the best material for the job.COLD-ROLLED HIGH CARBON EDGES: Rockwell 48 carbon steel edges are extremely durable and stay true when others blow out.FUSION FLEX + SIDECUT: The right combination of flex and sidecut is Venture's secret sauce, and is essential for balancing playfulness with control. The perfect fusion of these two elements distributes edge pressure evenly on the snow, boosting stability and edgehold.CASTOR BEAN TOPSHEETS: All Venture boards feature topsheet material made from the oil of castor beans, reducing their use of petroleum products. It's also the most durable topsheet material available.INLAID BASE GRAPHICS: With inlaid base graphics, the base material bonds directly with the other components. Swapping the spare parts from one base to another keeps waste to a bare minimum.
