Handmade FSC Core - From day one we’ve use only Forest Stewardship Council certified hardwoods to make our cores. This ensures the wood was grown and harvested sustainably. By making our own poplar/ash composite cores, we produce lightweight boards without sacrificing durability, resilience, or performance.
Poplar lends lightweight strength, while ash provides impact resistance and durability. We incorporate ash strips at the edge and under the inserts, where impact and stress are greatest. This strengthens the areas that take the most abuse, and translates into better edge hold on icy slopes. Full length wood laminates - no finger joints and no off axis grains - ensure even an consistent flex from tip to tail, and a core that won't break down over time.
