Stepchild Chamberlain Pro Snowboard 2013
All new sizes, twin shape with rocker and a poppy Kicker III core flex. This pro model is eight years in the making and comes with the new impact absorption Park Formula sidewalls and a Snag Free base. The Armadillo Plate binding reinforcement helps to prevent insert blowouts. The new Simon Pro Model also comes with a whopping 28 inserts to pretty much mount any stance you like. This board will get you into some steezy Simon presses in the park and also throw a good pow roost.
The 2012-2013 Stepchild Chamberlain Pro 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.
Kicker III Core - This is a poplar wood core with beech rails and beech insert strips. Tip-to-tail fully computerized milled and profiled poplar core gives a smooth and consistent flex pattern. The denser Beech wood re-enforced rails give the board stable edge control and a poppy flex. The insert strips are for compression strength where the corners of the bindings normally crush the wood core. Stepchild uses four strips of high-density beech to increase the strength in this critical zone.
Park Formula Sidewalls - These sidewalls are made of a material known as Philan which is lighter and harder than rubber but provides very similar impact absorption. It is much like the material used in a skateboard bushing. The Park Formula sidewall is meant to take a serious beat down.
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.
