Elements Asym

The Asym’s shape is guaranteed to blow your mind…or at least blow up the spot. Asym boards offer more control than you have ever felt in a snowboard with an easier transition from your heel to toe edge. Carbon crosses in the nose and tail add rigidity to the flex, offering a smooth all-mountain ride, so you can cruise easily and in style.

Rock Steady Flat Camber:
If you want the best of both worlds then this is the camber option for you. Our whole team has embraced flat camber because of the benefits of heavy pressability combined with all the pop of a traditional cambered board. Some say reverse camber should be left to powder riding and kids just learning how to press. Flat camber is for riders ready to take their freestyle and jibbing skills to the next level. Testing has also shown that flat camber is much more stable and really helps riders lock in landings and power through turns.

Asym Sidecut: The basic theory is that through body position, joint flex direction, and angulation, a snowboarder has much more control over a snowboard in a toeside turn versus a heelside turn when riding forward. This is also true when riding fakie, but intensified because riding backwards doesn’t feel as natural, and initiating and completing turns is much less natural. How many times do you wash out riding forwards on heelside turns, and how rarely do you wash out on your toeside edge? Have you ever noticed how fluid and powerful turning can be riding going forward, and how awkward and difficult the same is riding fakie? How much easier it is to approach a rail or jump forward than fakie? All that has much more to do with body position and the way body joints bend and muscles work than any other factor. The AsymElements sidecut geometry compensates for these differences in riding physics by creating a separate sidecut radius for the toeside and heelside edges, with the goal of equalizing the turning capability of both toeside and heelside turns, greatly increasing board control. The AsymElements geometry has been in constant refinement since its new-school inception in the early 90′s (namely in Tarquin Robbins’ pro models) when riding duck stance and fakie became mainstays in snowboarding, and by adding Technine’s Rock Steady Flat Camber technology the AsymElements is the next step in a lineage of the best riding freestyle snowboards ever made. Because of the unique geometry, the true twin board only has one heel edge and one toe edge, and so you always mount centered with your heel on the heel edge, regardless of goofy or regular, meaning if you’re goofy, then the regular nose is your tail, and vice versa.
