Chimera Shop Rat 2020/21

835

The Shop Rat has the soul of a pintail and the heart of a park board. The high-taper nose and hybrid camber keeps it unsinkable in pow and bottomless in turns, while the longer tail increases pop and stability to keep you on your feet and perfectly balanced. From pow to slush; from pillows to jibs; from icy skin tracks to lazy nose butters; the Shop Rat is our new backcountry smasher.

In ski mode, the Shop Rat is perfectly balanced, while the long nose eats up trail-breaking, and a flat contact patch maximizes traction.

Vertical Profile

  • Early rise nose – flat through the feet – micro-camber under backfoot.

Additional torsional rigidity and between-the-feet stiffening maximizes edge engagement to deliver a full-cambered feel. The flat profile enables responsive, edge-to-edge transitions and promotes float while a camber under the back foot maximizes edge hold for high-taper and pintail shapes.

 

Construction Notes (Standard)

  • Graphite sintered base for speed and durability
  • Aspen-poplar core for pop and longevity

Construction Notes (Guide Series)

  • Ultra-light carbon fiber construction.
  • Vertically laminated aluminum stringers. Restores damping to overcome the over-sprung feel of traditional carbon fibre snowboards.
