ACCEL CAMBER

ROCKETFISH OUTLINE CORE

The long waited Outline Core model for the Rocket Fish. This OC version is a touch softer than the regular model, however has been tuned to have little more rebound and adjusted the tail torsion to have a milder response. Riders who like more pop should go with the regular version, but this Outline core would be perfect for those who prefers a milder response.

Most people think of this shape to be a “powder specific” board, but the true performance of the Rocket Fish can really be experienced in the freshly groomed morning course. Be prepared to be blown away by the outstanding carving ability of the Rocket!

FUNCTION

ACCEL CAMBER

The idea of traditional camber is to apply the same amount of pressure onto the entire edge of a board to attain smoother, more stable carving and turning.

The camber arches from the center of the board all the way to 3 cm inside of the widest point of a board, both the nose and the tail. To turn, this camber has to be stepped on and the bottom pressed against the surface. This type of camber is effective at a resort, compacted slope or on a flat face. But it has lots of demerit on deep powder, fresh snow, or terrains with three-dimensional features. It is arched against the direction of the board, and the board could get hooked on the snow easily, making the turn less agile.

The GENTEMSTICK’s radical Accel camber eliminates hooking and prevents nosedives in deep powder or fresh snow, while maintaining a natural floatation. It is designed and shaped to perform its best when the rider stands neutrally on top of a board. It is made flat from the widest point of the nose side to about the front foot. The arch begins there and reaches the highest around the back foot, and it ends at the widest point of the tail side. When a rider stands on the board, the arch gets pushed and the area ahead of the front foot barely touches the snow.

This is the position that maximizes the performance of the board, and also the same position that reaches maximum velocity in ski races and other speed competitions. Accel camber has an arch from point A to point B. The board becomes flat as the back foot pressures the board. It rises slightly from the point C to the nose, which effectively reduces snow resistance. There are boards with similar camber designs released from major manufacturers these days. It is important to remember that the nose rocker design becomes very important with this kind of camber system, which has the peak of its arch placed further behind the center of a board. The GENTEMSTICK Accel camber boards are distinctly designed, especially from the point where the camber ends to the widest point of the nose. The key is to reduce resistance.

大人になってスノーボードの面白さに気づかせてくれた板。 もともとサーフィンをしていたので地形を波に見立てて当て込んだりするのが楽しく手にしたのですが、それだけではなく雪の上にラインを描く楽しさ、難しさ、奥深さに気づかせてくれました。海も山も大好きに。そんな相棒に出会えたことに感謝です。
