The Alpha board is designed for effortless all-mountain riding. A 3D spooned nose provides maximum float and turn initiation while a subtle pinch at the tail helps the board sink in deep snow. A poplar woodcore combined with carbon fiber layers creates a poppy, playful flex, but is still stiff enough for precise riding. The Absorbnid topsheet is there to keep vibrations at a minimum, producing a smooth ride. Intermediate/Advanced riders will be riding park to pow on this year’s Alpha board. Meow.
