What’s so different about a women’s board?
We get the question a lot.
Truth be told, we don’t have special technologies or innovations that are reserved for the ladies. We mostly follow the traditional recipe that make up any snowboard out there. But we add our own twist through subtle design details that make a big impact for women’s biological strength, power and center of gravity (or any gender who is looking for an alternative board style, design, and rideability).
A few of our technologies
BUHMPER Inside Edges
An ultra-high-molecular-weight (UHMW) polyethylene sidewall eliminates traditional splitboard steel inside edges. This extra-dense plastic increases damping and reduces chatter and weight, creating a much more natural ride on the downhill while maintaining edge grip on the uphill.
All boards start with a snappy, lightweight aspen core. Minimal tip fill reduces the swing weight so you can whip, turn and spin your board faster. Strategic carbon support is layered throughout to ensure torsional stiffness in critical areas under foot, especially helpful in sloppy snow. The end result is a women’s snowboard that’s light and maneuverable without compromising strength or power.
Good luck slapping a sticker on a Pallas board. We’ve chosen a textured topsheet material because of it’s ability to shed snow, resulting in less unwanted weight on your board—and helping you conserve your energy while touring.
