When the weatherman forecasts the biggest storm of the season we make sure that the surf-inspired deep-devouring WHITESPACE Montano Snowboard is the first thing in the car. One top-to-bottom run and it's clear that Shaun designed this board with two things in mind--going fast and slaying powder. The Montano's directional tapered shape and substantial setback stance work in tandem with its wide waist and large lifted nose to keep us both well afloat in thigh-deep powder and agile in tight tree zones. The unique nose flex pattern cuts front foot drag to maintain top speeds and easily surf over slow spots while the new carbon-infused triax laminates boost response and power while cutting grams to help us lay down high-speed carves. Throw in the lightning-fast sintered base for quick acceleration and speed that holds through slush chop and pow and we're bound to be hootin' and hollerin' from bell to bell.
