No frills, add-ons, or special features, the Spartan is a board born for a single purpose—getting your butt in the backcountry. It’s base is basic black. It’s topsheet looks like it was designed by a monk. It has our new channel puck system, but that’s as fancy as it gets. It’s tough and scrappy, with an easy flex, snappy radius, and enough taper at the tail for quick flicks in the trees, but not so much you can’t ride it switch. It has our legendary lightweight construction, but not a wiff of carbon. Because you don’t need it. This is the Spartan. True to its name and to our motto—simple, solid, backcountry.
