Because the Banker Snowboard was built to dominate in banked slalom races, its snappy core, blazing base, directional shape let us take on any course with speed and stability. The True Camber profile delivers the power needed to pump through turns for boosted speed, and a reverse-tapered poplar core with poppy beech stringers absolutely escalates that intensity. Nitro's faster-than-fast Sintered Speed Formula II base allows wax to infuse deep into the board, creating a lightning-quick ride no matter the conditions. Though all these slalom-focused features make this stick sound like a one-trick pony, that's far from the case. Its directional shape and stiff flex are ideal in freeride terrain, and its progressive sidecut keeps carves catch-free and floaty without smothering camber's snap.
