After years of selling snowboards out of his Whistler garage, British Columbia backcountry legend Kevin Sansalone has teamed up with Bataleon to make WhiteGold Snowboards available to you. When Kevin wants to charge big mountain lines and send it down scary chutes he relies on the WhiteGold North Snowboard. A directional shape and responsive feel provide the power and precision needed to pick apart technical terrain with ease.
Triple Base Technology starts with a traditional camber profile for reliable pop and edge hold, and turns the edges up towards the tip and tail to eliminate hang-ups when riding flat base, and give it the forgiving feel of rocker without sacrificing the benefits of camber. Triax glass and carbon V's at the nose and tail improve energy transfer for lightning quick response. Cork stringers running vertically between the edges and the inserts dampen vibrations to reduce chatter when you're charging through chunder and carving on ice.
The VeryLight core is made with poplar and Paulownia for an extremely lightweight, yet strong and snappy feel. The directional shape features a longer nose and a setback stance to keep you in control at high speeds and afloat in the deep stuff. Bamboo sidewalls increase rebound for bigger ollies and improve impact resistance. Super-thin Samurai edges give your carves more feeling and precision, and the tough sintered base is fast to keep you moving through slow spots on the mountain.
