I'm new to snowboarding and I get so many compliments on this board. Now I need to skill up to how badass it is!
Hands-down best board I have ridden. The Epiphany has all the features I like in a board: early-rise, flat between the feet, camber underfoot, slight setback. It performs well in pow, chunder, on groomers, and really powers through everything while still feeling fun. I have had a bunch of different boards over the years and this is the closest I have ever come to having a true quiver-killer. One board that can do everything. I have ridden it at Brighton, Snowbird, Park City, Jackson, Baker, Copper, and Powder Mountain and it is well-suited to all of them. Playful enough to mess around on lower angle terrain but stable enough to handle the steep and technical stuff.
Sorry, other snowboards, the Epiphany truly is a quiver killer. I'm a long time Pallas fan and own a Zeitgeist and a Hedonist, but have been looking for something more aggressive to add to the mix for the chunkiest/heaviest days of PNW snow sliding. The Epiphany fit the bill and effortlessly sliced through the chunk and chunder of Mt. Baker. Not only did it tackle heavy cement sludge in the sidecountry, it also performed well inbounds. It was SO stable on fast groomers and begged for high speeds. No wiggles, only giggles. Bottom line- this board is versatile, aggressive, and utterly confidence inspiring!
I wanted this board forever because I love what Pallas stands for as a company and how absolutely beautiful the graphics are, and I couldn't be more stoked to finally own one because this board exceeds my expectations every time I ride it! I sized down from my old 156 to the 151 because I was tired of feeling pushed around by the board the boys told me I should be on, and having a board made by women for women is everything I hoped for and more! I am amazed at how nimble it is in all conditions. Even with a wider waist, the shape of the board transitions from edge to edge effortlessly, which is super fun to carve on groomers and was incredibly confidence inspiring in steep couloirs we bootpacked in spring. I haven't found a snow condition that this board doesn't handle well, it charges through chop and pops off of features, lays into corn and floats on pow. Its truly an all mountain, all season board. I am absolutely a better rider on this board, and because of the confidence it gives me, I have more fun! Now I want this board in a split too!
After years of demoing Pallas and riding other boards, I finally bought my own Epiphany board. First of all owning a board made by badass women makes me so stoked. More importantly, this board shreds hard. I know people say “it’s not the board, it’s the rider”. Those people haven’t ever ridden Pallas. The board carves hard on groomers, turns on a dime and floats through powder like a friggin dream. I am 5’3” so I normally ride a 145 but I sized up to the 147, and it didn’t feel awkward or clumsy to turn. It actually rode better than my typical 145. I can ride faster and harder on this board than any other board I’ve ever strapped into. We just moved to Montana and I cannot wait to put some laps in on this Pallas this winter. Do yourself a favor, buy this board. You will have zero regrets. **My husband would like to add that I’m a much more confident rider on this board.
