The Pipeliner delivers unmatched corduroy carving performance. This is the board for classic surf-style snowboarding. A piste-pistol for riders who like deep, high-speed turns. With 1501 mm of effective edge you can ride the steeps with total confidence. The longboard shape provides superior edge hold and the rockered nose and tail make it a high-performance powder board. This versatility is at the core of our design philosophy. The topsheet design is inspired by surf maverick Miki Dora’s “Da Cat” board.
Length: 185 cm Core: Ash/poplar Construction: Triax glass with carbon a-frames Topsheet: Bamboo Profile: Camber with Tip-Tail-Rocker, round tail Base: 5920 Graphite Electra
We build our snowboards with classic camber and distinguish between standard camber and low camber: The Pipeliner has standard camber with Tip-Tail-Rocker. The camber is elevated 11mm, with the contact points slightly moved toward the snowboard’s centre for easy turning. The board feels very stable, even when carving on icy slopes.
Progressive rise in the nose optimizes float and easy turning when freeriding. Combined with Tip-Tail-Rocker and a shorter tail it results in forgiving, playful performance. With a 50 mm setback and a shorter tail, you can ride powder with ease.
At Stranda Snowboards we use ash wood and a minor part poplar in our cores. Ash is perfect for building high-performance snowboards as it dampens vibrations and holds its camber, extending the life of your board. Adding poplar keeps the weight down. Choosing a premium material also allowed us to reduce the use of petroleum-based composites. We use a thin layer of bamboo as the topsheet, which adds to performance.
