Fast and powerful, this is the switchblade of powder boards, and it will slash the backcountry like no other. While many great powder boards are large and surfy, the  Kazu Kokubo Pro  comes in a compact chassis with a powder nose and a slightly tapered tail, making this award-winning series quick and maneuverable. This versatility is perfect for those side-country powder mornings when things get tracked, and you end up back inside the resort boundaries for the remainder of the day.  It unleashes maximum power through the  FSC ® Certified Panda CoreTM  with  Bamboo Power RodsTM  and is loaded with high-end construction components like a new  SkinlessTM Core Ash  woodgrain topsheet,  HyperDriveTM  high-speed sintered base, and  AmplitexTM V-Tech Amplifiers. While it it's a lofty goal, this board is your first step towards trying to emulate Kazu's legendary riding style.

FEATURES:

Rocker Type

Alpine V2 Rocker. The ALPINE V2 Profile features lower-body camber with a reverse cambered nose. This allows for maximum turning power while increasing float and landing stability.

Flex

Directional Flex

Flex Rating 6.5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

Directional Shape

Radical Taper. Engineered for deep powder but still versatile around the mountain, this RADIAL sidecut is complemented by a TAPERED TAIL. This narrower tail section naturally sinks in the powder while the wider nose section floats above the snow line. The result is less work and more fun as the board surfs on one smooth continual arc.

Core

FSC Certified Panda Core. From razor-sharp turns on demand to huge ollies, the PANDA CORE was engineered with all-terrain technical freestyle riding in mind. Comprised of a Poplar / Paulownia core and enhanced with inlaid Bamboo Power Rods, this high-density core is strong enough to meet the needs of the all-terrain customer while saving considerable weight.

Laminates

Amplitech V-Tech Amplifier. Amplitex is a next-generation natural flax fiber woven with carbon strands that is featured in high-end snowboard constructions. This fusion tape brings the best of two worlds: the reactive energy of carbon and the lightweight and dampening aspects of flax. The two fibers are highly compatible since they have similar properties regarding thermal expansion and failure strain, creating a uniformly flexing reinforcement that's light, snappy and durable all in one.

Holysheet Fiberglass. The HOLYSHEET fiberglass configuration features fiber weaves with a high tensile strength and low modulus of elasticity. With a higher roving count in the same weight of glass, you can have a stronger and more responsive board without adding extra weight. It features Triaxial fiberglass on top of the core and Biaxial fiberglass beneath, creating a perfectly blended ride while increasing strength and durability.

Magic Bean Resin. Developed over a three-year span, this advanced resin system has a bio-content of 60% renewable, agricultural raw material. It is plant based that does not compete with primary food sources and is produced with no waste or greenhouse emissions. In production, it has a low-temperature requirement with a high yield output. This resin system is poppy, powerful, and extremely durable. MAGIC BEAN resin yields much stronger and more rigid qualities allowing a decrease in the wood core thickness. The focus is to save wood core weight by increasing resin performance. This means you get a lighter board while achieving higher energy return.

Sidewalls

Full ABS1000 Sidewalls

Base

Hyperdrive Base. Exclusively formulated, sintered, ultra-high molecular weight, ultra-high density polyethylene, custom engineered with special additives. Rated for the most depraved speed junkies only.

Edges

360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges

Topsheet

Skinless Core Ash Woodgrain Topsheet. Specially treated pure wood veneer topsheet with a unique tactile feel that is 220gm lighter than the standard process.

Graphics

Multitech Level 4 DeepSpace Silkscreen. The DEEPSPACE Design Theory takes advantage of the thickness of a transparent topsheet. Strategically layering ink on multiple levels from the top and the bottom imbues graphics with a sense of life through depth.

Sublimation Base Graphic

Binding Compatibility

Stainless Steel 4 x 2 Inserts
