THE PUBLIC CONTINUES TO DELIVER THE SOLID, PLAYFUL PLATFORM RIDERS LIKE AUSTEN SWEETIN AND JUSTIN MULFORD NEED TO COME UP WITH LINES NO ONE ELSE EVEN CONSIDERS.
Requiring a neutral yet responsive and durable board, the Public was designed for terrain that was never meant to be ridden. Flat (or zero) camber keeps the board neutral enough to not get too squirrely and unpredictable. The core is milled with a mid-flex between the feet and a slightly thicker “bump” just outside the binding areas. This produces a soft overall flex that still pops ollies. The nose and tail profiles are a blended radius to flat kick that is perfect for extended nose presses.
TRUE TWIN / RADIAL
A mainstay of freestyle riding. Completely symmetrical outline; the stance is centered on the effective edge, tip and tail are identical length and shape, flex is identical at both ends of the board. Radial sidecut is effective and predictable. The overall shape allows complete freedom of expression by keeping the board a neutral, yet responsive tool.
Our baseline core for tip to tail wood-core snowboard construction. Strikes a predictable balance between durability, consistent flex and light weight.
Just like it says. This material is formed by extrusion. It’s softer than our other two bases, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. At the speeds many of us ride, this material is actually quicker (gets up to speed faster) than sintered when waxed correctly. You may have your own proof of this when you’re smoking by someone with a dried out “high-end” base. It also retains wax better because it’s more porous and is easy to fix with a P-Tex stick if you get scratches in it.
