The Flagship excels in steep, technical terrain and is widely known as one of the most confidence inspiring freeride boards on the planet. Featuring a blunt nose, freestyle tail and Spoon 3.0 base contours, the Flagship floats, stomps, or straight lines with unbelievable precision. The edges of the Flagship’s Spoon nose are beveled up for improved float and turn fluidity while the Spoon tail edges are beveled up for less catch. Power V Basalt stringers transfer rider input directly to the edges and the Flagship’s Flax Fiberglass topsheet improves ECO-performance. New for 2019, we’ve lightened up the Flagship’s Master Core by using wider Paulownia stringers.
A hybrid rocker/camber flex pattern defined by more tip rocker then tail rocker and camber between the bindings. The rockered tip floats the board’s nose and improves maneuverability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. A slightly rockered tail maintains the power and stability of a traditional board but helps keep the tail catch-free initiating turns and landing switch.
My experience is that most falls in freeriding start from the nose of the board – you either go over the bars in powder, the nose gets caught under a weird crust and tosses you, or you hit a hard tranny at the contact point of the tip and get bucked. Directional Rocker eliminates most of these falls. — Jeremy Jones
