Stepchild Wide Glide Snowboard - Wide 2013
The Wide Glide has reverse camber and is specifically designed for riders with bigger feet that are tired of getting shit on. The Wide Glide comes with a Kevlar Re-Enforcer Kicker I Core layered with Triax Fiberglass. The true twin wide shape makes it a perfect all around freestyle board that eliminates that goofy toe drag. The board is available in waist widths ranging from 261-265mm and will easily accommodate a larger boot. The board includes the Armadillo Plate binding reinforcement and a Snag Free Structurn base. The Wide Glide also has 24 binding inserts for ample stance options. Stepchild has put together a wide series dedicated to the big riders out there.
The 2012-2013 Stepchild Wide Glide Men's Snowboard key features:
Reverse Camber - This board is pressed to resemble the bottom of a rocking chair. The rocker gives the board an easy riding feel as it is "pre-flexed" going into turns. It works well for parks, jibs and amazingly well on powder days. Stepchild has bracketed the rocker to each board size. This ensures that every size of every rocker board will have great pop as well as the easy ride rocker provides. The low profile ramping on the tip and tail help to eliminate vibration and chatter.
Kevlar Reinforced Kicker I Core - Tip-to-tail, fully computerized, milled and profiled poplar core that gives a smooth and consistent flex distribution pattern. Kevlar is a lightweight material known for its strength. It will also help you get more days riding with a lively and consistent flex because nobody likes to ride a dead board.
Armadillo Plate - A diamond shaped fiberglass re-enforcement layer is placed over the inserts to help prevent insert blowouts. The unique diamond shape strengthens the board around the inserts without interrupting the flex pattern.
Snag Free Base - These bases are hardened in the press by a temperature control system that cooks the base harder as it sandwiches the board. The base material comes out of the press much harder than it went in. Snag Free bases have no die cuts or joints in the base material which is usually how the board will snag.
