Pick a line, any line.
Legendary shredder and Slash founder Gigi Ruf is well known for his precision on a snowboard in the backcountry, so it's no surprise that his original pro model ATV Snowboard is designed to deliver the kind of performance Gigi expects in a board. Utilizing traditional camber, the profile used since the beginning of snowboarding, this board is designed to distribute weight evenly and increase pop, giving you a precise response and a snappy, reactive feel.
The twin shape and directional flex make it an all-terrain, all-conditions machine, and the tip protectors on the weight-saving concave tips help it stand up to the most aggressive jibbing. Reactive Flex uses two unique fiberglass in combination with the specially-profiled core to allow the board to flex across the width. When boardsliding a rail, for example, the edges bend upwards like a skateboard to prevent you from catching an edge. When carving a turn, it works the other way around. The board's edges flex downward, making for a concave base that adds extra grip.
Within the inside of this board, you'll find a Forever Wood core made of paulownia, spruce, beech, and poplar wood. This four-way wood blend reduces weight while increasing pop and response. Buried Treasure reduces the weight of the board by combining Kevlar, carbon, and basalt to increase pop and response while allowing for a thinner core that doesn't sacrifice strength. Slick Tip construction in the nose and tail reduces even more weight, substantially lightening your load for hiking and riding backcountry lines. To give you the grip you need to hold an edge on icy kickers and bulletproof groomers, it features Ultimate Traction, which uses one small, counter-radius bump at the center of the sidecut to create an additional contact point. The result is a powerful board that charges through trees and powder fields, but doesn't mind being taken into the park, either.

ATV- Camber is KING!

There is just something amazing about a full camber board. The energy i fell from edge to edge on my 158 reminds me why carving is so awesome. Do yourself a favor and get on some camber this winter.
