Our A Plate system provides complete isolation from vibrations in a snowboard, reducing rider fatigue. This isolation also allows the board to flex more naturally so your board performs the way it was designed to.
By fixing your stance and not allowing it to change this system allows the rider to remain in complete comfort and balance while riding over the roughest of terrain. The reduction in rider fatigue will allow you to ride longer and make uneven, chopped up snow a viable carving surface.
The A Plate is a traditional snowboard cap construction incorporating a vertically laminated poplar and ash core surrounded by triaxial fiberglass and pbt topsheet material
The hardware below the plate is machined from aluminum, stainless steel and UHMW polyethylene.
