We designed a shallow swallowtail with a blunted nose and a mellow taper. That means this board is the ultimate all-mountain board, from pow to side hits... Our ambassador Jernej tested it even in the park with some gnarly tricks. In that case, we made two similar boards. One for customers and one for us for testing.
We used poplar/paulownia/beech woodcore and have added 4 carbon stringers in V formation in the nose and tail for pop and torsional stability.
The graphics is made by the customer's designer.
This board was so amazing when we tested it that we decided to take it as a starting point for our next production board.
We have redesigned it to 158, designed Moonchild graphics and made a mold for production. (we build our custom boards without molds)
The production model will be called Live wire 158. It will come in a limited number in the upcoming season, then we will scale the production.
