TBT Snowboarding

Triple Base Technology divides the nose and tail in 3 sections. A left side base to go left, a centre base to go straight and a right side base to go right.

The turned up sidebases make initiating turns faster with less effort. The increased uplift starting from zero at the bindings to

maximum at the widest point puts the control under your feet.

As you go into the turn the grip increases out from your binding to a full traditional edge grip over the entire effective edge when fully committed.

The uplifted sidebases make your

board forgiving when going straight but the edge is still there when put on edge.

Because the board is flat between the bindings with full tip to tail camber down the entire centre of the board you keep all the performance and control of a traditional camber board.

The angled sidebases give you all the playfulness, foregiveness and powder float we have come to appreciate from rocker shapes.

TBT gives you both full tip to tail camber and rocker in one shape and it actually works.

But don’t believe us...

TBT

JIB TBT is great for jibbing and urban riding. JIB TBT is completely symmetrical about the nose and tail. JIB TBT has the biggest center base flat of all our TBT flavors. The extra centre flat base width stabilizes your slides and presses. On the side bases the TBT uplift begins under your feet for a super loose and forgiving effect with the TBT uplift. JIB TBT comes with a very mellow flat camber to make pressing easy but still give plenty of pop to your ollies.

TBT

PARK TBT is great for park riding and jibbing with flat center base widths and lengths in between JIB and TWIN TBTs. PARK TBT comes with a very mellow flat camber profile for legit presses. This combo of sidebase uplift, wide center base and mellow flat camber makes PARK TBT perfect for boards that need high speed park stability but still retain all the jib capability. PARK TBT is symmetrical on the nose and tail for the same ride switch as forwards.

TWIN TBT is great for park riding. In this shape we combine a traditional smoothly curving tip to tail camber. Because of a reasonably wide center base flat TWIN TBT retains a large enough flat base width for easy presses and stability on rail slides and landings. TWIN TBT boards feature longer contact lengths than JIB- or PARK TBT for more stability at speed. This makes TWIN TBT suitable for riding all kinds of parks and terrain. The extra uplift in the sidebases after the effective edge ends greatly improve riding in uneven terrain and negotiating tight transitions.

TBT

FREESTYLE TBT is the most ‘all round’ TBT shape in the range. Here the widths of the left side base, center flat base and right sidebase are divided into almost 3 equal parts. This rail to rail bend is combined with a traditional tip to tail camber profile on the centre base section. Freestyle TBT comes with longer contact length to minimise twitchiness at high speed. Freestyle TBT is still symmetrical about the nose and tail for equal performance when riding switch as forwards. A ‘good-for-everything-shape’ with fast edge-to-edge freestyle looseness and great overall stability.

TBT

ALL MOUNTAIN TBT has a slightly narrower centre flat base section than FREESTYLE TBT and it’s camber profile is a bit more aggressive. Together with a longer flat section under the feet it delivers faster riding with superb response edge-to-edge and maximum stability at high speed. With a very slightly directional TBT, the board is optimized to ride forwards, but is more than capable of performing switch when necessary. ALL MOUNTAIN TBT does what it says on the tin: performs over the whole mountain. The extra uplift in the sidebases after the effective edge ends greatly improve the float in powder.

Freeride TBT

TBT

FREERIDE TBT is designed especially for off piste charging and on piste carving. The narrowest centre flat base width maximises edge-to-edge agility and the widest TBT sidebase wings with increased uplift angles on the nose guarantees superb float through the deepest powder. Like the stance, the flat section between the feet is set back to put more turning power over your back foot making it carve like a dream. Tapered tail TBT is the final ingredient, allowing you to power out of turns, lofting massive powder clouds.

TBT

POW TBT is TBT on steroids, with everything maxed out to get that feeling of surfing powder. The same narrow centre flat base width as for FREERIDE TBT, but with both the TBT and the stance set way back. Insane uplift angles on the nose sidebases means that you float effortlessly no matter how deep it gets. The shorter, tapered tail TBT works with the camel toe shape to put the riders weight right over the back foot without them having to lean and ensures the most powder possible is put up into the air on each turn. Unlike most powder specific shapes out there POW TBT still holds its own when you find yourself on a slope.

"WE ARE JUST TRYING TO TELL YOU WHERE THE BOARDS PERFORM BEST BUT DON'T GO TOO NUTS ON THESE CATEGORIES. TBT MAKES EVERY SNOWBOARD MORE VERSITILE THAN A FLAT BOARD. YOU CAN STILL JIB WITH A GOLIATH, CARVE WITH AN AIROBIC, RIDE PARK ON AN OMNI AND HIT POWDER WITH A DISASTER."

TBT Advantages

us vs. them

THE BEST COMBO OF ROCKER AND CAMBER.

Rail to rail bend in the entire tip and tail area with smooth increasing angles creates a smooth carving, very playful and forgiving board because the edges are lifted at the widest point. This is combined with full tip to tail positive camber so you more pop in your ollies and explosiveness edge to edge.

When you stand on the board the dynamic

edge rocker created by the lifted side bases keep your board loose, but the camber is loaded and ready to pop.

On edge, the contact is on the entire edge and the smooth increasing angles keep the turn smooth. The camber is loaded ready to snap you fast from edge to edge, helped by the lifted side base making the board change edges over the narrow part and not the wide part of the board.

others bend tip-to-tail

traditional camber

It's very aggressive with lots of pop but it's not loose or forgiving.

Nothing wrong with some good ol' camber for pop and responsiveness and a snappy edge to edge power transfer.

When you stand on this the board will dig in on the wide part of the nose and tail. Not so fun.

others bend rail-to-rail

spoons

Bending your board where it hardly touches the snow will not do much for your snowboarding.

rocker / reverse camber

Super loose but very little pop and performance.

Reverse camber came like a hot fart that has almost left the building. It's fun in powder and presses easy but kinda sucks for snowboarding.

When you stand on it there is no extra pop to load and it feels like always riding with a super short effective edge both flat and on edge.

opposite tbt

If it's bent from rail to rail in exactly the opposite areas than TBT, it can not have the same benefits of TBT. We honestly can't think what this is good for except boardslides in the middle of you board.

v rocker

No pop and little performance

It’s fun in powder and presses easy but kinda sucks for snowboarding. Pressing this is like having fake tits.

It looks great but everyone knows it’s fake.
On edge there is no natural curve at all.

tip to tail lifted edges

You can find this on a lot of kid boards. This has very little to do with a performance snowboard in fact its the opposite.

This thing will not track straight and will never make a proper turn.

camber rocker combos

These shapes where to bring the answer to the lack of camber in rocker. Just throw them together and the you have both, problem solved. Well not really. Plus the answer to the problem is already out there and it’s called TBT.

These so called combo boards sound great in theory and the side drawings look spectacular but when you stand on them they are still flat.

On edge its just a mess. Multiple contact points where pressure is accumulated might edge hard but no fast edge to edge or smooth pressure distribution.

Just lifting wide points

Although this will make the board less aggressive it doesn't have TBT’s smooth increasing angles that work all the way from the bindings

to the ends of the board to deliver the smoothest ride possible.

even weirder versions

Yes this does exist. And no it doesn’t make much sense to bend the board under your bindings and then not in the parts of nose and tail where you want to have forgiveness and not aggression.
