The Orbit series packs maximum sidecut into reduced running lengths for a new generation of free carve boards. Designed and constructed with the agility to pop into a deep carve, and the stability to lock it in.
Designed for the rider who is ready to take their Euro-carve to new lengths, or charge the fall line. The Orbit is built from the ground up to perform like no other board on the market. Increased widths to alleviate toe-drag for hard carvers who run moderate angles. Carbon in the tail and nose for power and stability.
The 20/20 kinda freaked people out last year. By pushing our own creative envelope and disrupting the limits of what a modern snowboard factory could mass-produce, we set an industry milestone that we’re very proud of.
Deep pronounced concaves at either end of this short, true-twin outline cause the board’s planing angle in powder to mimic a traditional directional board, even with your weight centered. The forward (or leading) concave draws air under the hull causing lift. That same shape on the trailing end is an exaggerated rocker line that speeds the release of snow causing the tail to drop. Land switch and the same thing happens.
And with its wide waist width and tight sidecut, this board rips hardpack and park laps too. There’s no need to compromise anymore with the 20/20 Powderhull.
We really like to turn. David really loves to turn. Turning is fun. So we came up with a way to fix it. Tapered UnderBite segments the Pick Your Line’s sidecut into three equal lengths.
Each of these lengths step inward by a couple mm’s while remaining parallel to the corresponding side. Because the sidecut remains parallel and is not actually tapered (or “pulled-in”), the edges remain fully engaged with the snow when under power. We also tweak the dimensions of each segment so that it gets more aggressive towards the tail.
You get the same directional drive and float you expect from a tapered board, but with incredible edge hold and a lively snap out of every turn.
December 31st to January 8th found a stable of Tribute shop riders and friends ascending and descending on Mount Carlyle Lodge- Wiggles, Logan2, Uncle Bacon and friends left their indelible, lanolin-scented mark all over the surrounding backcountry and the lodge will never be the same.

We get a lot of questions about camber in the shop. So for those of you who want to learn more about what camber is and how it effects the way that you ride, read on good people! Camber is essentially the natural shape (or flex) of the board at rest. Imagine looking at your snowboard perfectly from the side and seeing the way the edge of the board curves slightly from tip to tail. It’s from that view that you can tell the camber of a board.

Well, that was fast. We sold out of these on day 11, good thing we have 11 more ideas to go! To kick us off right, we're starting with the sharpest looking gift in the shop: The Roark Revival Cassius Knife It's the raddest looking pocket knife with a serrated blade that you ever did saw.
