The Descender is for anyone who wants a directional freeride snowboard with enough tail to allow for switch landings and with enough power to charge big lines. This board has no speed limit and is aiming for best in class  performance. Power Bumps™ at the inserts for ultimate grip and security in critical situations boost your level of confidence. The weight is kept low to allow for backcountry freestyle riding. The Descender has a light and snappy core using feather weight paulownia mixed with full length poplar and ash laminates. Thanks to the double ash stringers and dampening PU-sidewalls there is zero chatter when straight lining icy faces.

OUTLINE

Directional freeride with Power Bumps™ at inserts adding contact points for ultimate grip on ice.

BOTTOM SHAPE

We build our snowboards with camber and Tip-Tail-Rocker. We distinguish between standard camber and low camber: with low camber, the centre of the board is slightly elevated and the contact points are further towards the centre. The Descender has an unique parabolic 5 mm camber – lifted under rear foot for extra pop and ollie power – with low tip- and tail-rocker.

core

At Stranda Snowboards we use ash wood and mix it with lighter types of timber as poplar and paulownia. Ash is perfect for building high-performance snowboards as it dampens vibrations and holds its camber, extending the life of your board. Adding poplar and paulownia keeps the weight down. Choosing a premium material also allowed us to reduce the use of petroleum-based composites.

  1. Malin

    After riding this board for almost two seasons, I can with certainty say that that the Descender is THE snowboard. Absolutely love it!

    To start, the edge hold is amazing. No matter how icy it is I truly feel secure. When riding in the slopes, a wicked edge hold is the most important feature.

    Speed: when going in higher speeds, the board is super stable and there’s absolutely nothing (except my own skill lol) that limits my speed.
    Still, the board is very playful and has a great pop; jumping here and there is a pure joy.

    Powder: Now you’re thinking: if this board is as great in the slopes and to play around with, it can’t be as great in powder. But it is! The board floats really well and there’s no need to “hang” on the tail to make it float on fluffy snow. And to turn around trees is very smooth.

    To sum it up: the Descender is an all mountain board that really performs stunningly all over the mountain.
    In my opinion, this is the only board you’ll ever need (unless you’re only riding park)

    This board rips! The Descender quickly became my go-to board this season. Charges hard through all conditions and super fun in powder. I’m pleased at how poppy it is, while also maintaining an edge in less than stellar snow conditions! I’m a lifer!

    My new favorite snowboard!
    Perfect board when it comes to carving the slope, and really funny I the woods in fresh pow! I’m never disappointed when I take this one out shredding.
