THE CHASER HIGH PERFORMANCE

MEN

ACCEL CAMBER

The Chaser High Performance is an almighty shape with ample float for deep conditions. Good all around size and very honest handleability for carving the morning groomers.

We kept the overall characteristics from the original Chaser, made it more agile and maneuverable for more average boots-size riders, and fine-tuned for a more aggressive riding performance.

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.

REVIEW

Jo
I’m 176cm / 65kg and found this board to be fantastic fun - it’s fast and playful, throws a powerful carve on firm snow with exceptional edge hold, and has just enough flex that you can manipulate it into varying turning arcs. Really refreshing to rediscover the fun in turning. I was curious about the width but find it very easy to manage and the edge to edge is completely natural, same feeling as narrower boards, but more confidence for deeper curves. When it comes to deep powder, this board loves it : stable and fast, you can ride neutral, hunting for the next hit / air, and very nimble through the trees. When freeriding I find the agility and flex really flatter the rider, allowing you to porpoise through choppy 3d terrain, rather than fighting your way down : truly a snow surfing experience~! After renting one for a few days I just had to have one for my quiver!
