Ridden by backcountry freestyle legends Manuel Diaz and Geoff Brown, this board is the culmination of some highly radical brainstorming sessions, built to bring your wildest dreams to reality.
Made with backcountry freestyle centre of mind, The Brainstorm is a directional twin shape that slays the whole mountain. We‘ve set the Brainstorm back and raised the nose with Camrock to aid manoeuvrability in deeper snow and it inspires hard charging thanks to the carbon fibre, Kevlar and basalt stringers, which snap the board to action, providing lightning-quick responses when carving and slashing.
Flex Rating – 5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
Progressive Sidecut – A progressive sidecut design blends many radii and smooth contact points for buttery smooth turn initiation, edge-to-edge transition and edge hold. It’s different for each model and matches the sidecut to the board’s specific camber profile.
Forever Woodcore – Constructed from four different lightweight wood species—paulownia, spruce, beech and poplar—for a premium core that offers a highly tuned and dynamic feel. It’s flyweight, durable, filled with pop and highly reactive.
Bi-Ax Fiberglass – Bi-ax Fiberglass is a two-way weave of fiberglass with strands running every 90-degrees. It’s more forgiving, easier to flex and highly versatile for all terrain types.
Tri-Ax Fiberglass – A three-way weave of fiberglass with strands running at 45-degree angles. It provides superior pop, consistent torsional flex, and more overall response.
Landing Strip – Strips of Kevlar and carbon fiber placed from the inserts to the tips in the nose and tail to support landings and reduce washouts. This design also helps dampen high-speed chatter, offer stability at speed, and load up potent ollies.
Factory Wax – All Slash boards are factory waxed with OneBallJay wax and ready to shred straight out of the wrapper.
Belt Finish – The belt finish gets your base optimized before it's fully waxed.
Sintered Base 6000 – This sintered base is fast, durable and requires less waxing. Slash believes in using the best possible materials and refrain from using cheaper, low-density extruded material our boards.
Steel – Built with 35% more steel content than the average, these are simply stronger and more durable.
Ultimate Traction – This small counter radius (bump) placed in the middle of the board’s sidecut improves edge hold without creating drag or strange edge grip. It adds extra bite on ice and turns regular turns into confident carves.
