Borealis Koi Split 2019-20

 
 

DESCRIPTION

The award-winning Koi (2018 Board of the Year by ACT Snowboarding Magazine, 2019 Top of the Pop by SnowSurf Mag) is back for ever more deep powder forest runs and steep freeride exultations. If you’ve ever wondered how it feels to fly or to glide on a cloud, think again and try the Koi. A whole new world is about to open-up to you. A world of joy, non-stop smiling and fun in its purest form. The Koi is built upon the Blizzard Camber, an ideal combination of rocker and camber, carefully studied to offer maximum float in deep powder and unmatched grip and edge-hold on harder terrain. Its ultra-long tip and progressive rocker keeps you afloat the most jaw-dropping oceans of powder whilst the camber zone between your feet gives you all the power and grip you need, especially when carving. Its short fish-like tail allows for fast and responsive turns; ideal in the forest to hover between trees. It carries a 100% natural bamboo topsheet, which brings a natural and poppy feel to the board but also dampens vibrations. Equipped with an IS7200 high-quality sintered base, Carbon Power Beams and the Powder Paw vibration dampener, the Koi is the perfect blend of speed, stability, response and fluidity. A must-have for aficionados of powder riding and piste carving. This Deep Blue version is equipped with our DNA Bioplastic topsheet ornamented with a traditional Japanese fish scales pattern.

The Borealis Koi features the perfect balance between rocker and traditional camber. The wide and long rockered nose will keep you afloat on the deepest days, while the camber between bindings gives you an outstanding grip when conditions are far from perfect and we want to carve hard. We were surprised by how fast it’s on the edge to edge transition while carving. At the same time, the short tail helps when doing quick and tight turns.The Koi is a perfect choice for those riders looking for maximum floatability on powder days and amazing performance for carving.
