Camber snowboards

Veelgestelde vragen

What is a camber snowboard?

A camber snowboard, also known as a traditional camber snowboard, is a type of snowboard where the center of the board (between the bindings) curves upward while the tip and tail make contact with the ground. This creates an arch shape that raises the center of the board off the snow.

Bij een directional twin snowboard is de flexibiliteit meestal iets stijver bij de tail (achterkant) dan bij de tip (voorkant). Dit geeft het board meer stabiliteit en controle bij hoge snelheden en zorgt voor betere prestaties in poedersneeuw. De bindingen zijn doorgaans iets meer naar achteren geplaatst dan bij een gewoon twin board, waardoor het board een iets meer directioneel karakter krijgt.

What are the Benefits of a camber snowboard

The camber profile provides excellent power transfer and edge grip as the board is pre-loaded in the center. This gives the board stability and pop, making it suitable for aggressive carving, high-speed descents, and powerful turns on hard, groomed slopes.

What are the disadvantages of a camber snowboard?

However, the camber profile can also result in less forgiveness and stability in variable terrain and snow conditions, especially in deep powder snow. It can also make it more challenging for beginners to initiate turns as the board provides more resistance and can catch edges more easily.

Is a camber snowboard only for advanced riders?

No, a camber snowboard is not only for advanced snowboarders. While camber snowboards are known for their responsiveness and power, they can also be suitable for riders of various skill levels, depending on their preferences, abilities, and the conditions in which they ride.
