Just like a Samurai, the Borealis Dark Koi is sharper, more aggressive and tougher than its opponents. The Dark Koi has a better and stronger core than the regular Koi, which makes the board a lot more direct. There is also an extra carbon strip added to the nose, so there is really nothing this board cannot get through. The Borealis Dark Koi is a formidable competitor of the Jones Ultracraft, at a fraction of the cost.
Huge front rocker that will keep you above the deepest snow, flat zone for more stability, positive camber down to the tail for powerful turns.
UL Forest Core
Ultralight wood core made from FSC-certified woods (poplar, paulownia) reinforced with bamboo rods. Thinner tip and tail for reduced swing weight. Dynamic, snappy and durable.
This board is assembled using the Greenpoxy Eco-Resin, made from 55+% of recycled biomass such as recycled vegetable oils and sawdust. This very low-VOC (volatile organic compound) bio-resin is a long-lasting and high-performance alternative to classic epoxy resins.
Specifically-designed ultra-lightweight carbon frame placed from the front foot towards the tip of the board. The results are increased stabillity, improved carving abilities and higher overall performance.
Carbon Power Beams
Our carefully-studied carbon reinforcement matrix are designed for each board’s needs. Wether the aim is to boost pop, stability or precision, these beams are the central nervous system of your ride, making it more dynamic and swift.
Long strips of intermeshed Kevlar© and carbon placed on strategic zones of the core reducing vibrations and making the ride smoother, just as a lynx’s paw pads.
Triax Glass x2
This composite is weaved in 3 different angles, bringing precision, reactivity and stability to the board. High longitudinal and torsional stifness.
DNA Bioplastic Topsheet
Plant-based (50%) organic topsheet with improved resistance to impacts and low snow adherence properties, allowing to slide through powder with less friction.
Added 7th row of inserts for extreme set-back on powder feasts.
Nano Ultima Speed Base
This premium high-molecular density base is our most technically-advanced and fastest option. Reach unprecedented speeds on any terrain and snow temperature. High impact-resilience and great wax-absorption.
Extra contact points added to the sidecut offer more security and amazing grip on hard snow and ice. Very similar to Magnetraction.
The shield has your back: it will help protect your board against rocks, hidden roots or any other obstacle.
