From stormy mornings of surfing low-angle powder in the trees to those clear, stable days perfect for checking iconic lines off your list, you'll always enjoy getting after it on the Venture Paragon Splitboard. Venture claims it's their most versatile board to date, and considering its moderately directional shape, Straight-Line Rocker, and medium flex, it's not hard to see why. The Straight-Line profile places flat underfoot to provide stability and edge hold on hardpack and steeps, with rocker at the tip and tail for float and forgiveness. A long, wide nose keeps your tip up in the deep stuff and gives pow turns a surfy feel, while a stiffer, tapered tail provides drive and control when you're charging. Precise craftsmanship and attention to detail prevents sloppiness in the seam so the board rides more like a solid snowboard, allowing you to shred technical lines with confidence. Back again this year is the Carbonium topsheet, which is textured to prevent icy buildup on top of your board. Aspen sourced from within 100 miles of Venture's Silverton factory keeps the core lightweight, and ash and poplar stringers maintain strength and snappiness. Triax glass gives it pop and responsiveness while maintaining torsional flex so you can hold a mean edge. The castor bean topsheet reduces the need for petroleum-based products to boost eco-friendliness, and the sintered base is fast and hard to resist damage from hidden rocks.
