Handmade Poplar/Ash Core - From day one we’ve use only sustainably harvested hardwoods to make our cores. 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.
