2015-2016 MODEL

T.T165 CLASSIC

FLAT CAMBER

The TT model’s outline has been shaped in 1989, and released in 1990. Its outline has gone through minor changes in the sidecut, bottom and tail rocker, but its length and width has been kept the same since the start. This original shape is now seen as a “Modern-classic design”. Its short round tail provides great maneuverability and an excellent release. Its pointy nose pulls out a solid and sharp spray. The sidecut and the rocker-line harmonize into a beautiful outline that has been polished out by pursuing the style to surf the snow without inhibition. It is the Flagship of Gentemstick for the hardcore snowsurfers riding this model in any condition. The omnificent icon of the new era. That is the TTmodel.

Note: The TTmodel is not a “powder only” board. Its design is orientated to ride three-dimensional terrains, such as banks or natural halfpipes. The condition snow can be powder, soft groomers or spring crud, but the more the surface condition becomes uniform and smooth the more will stand out its unparalleled riding performance. The edge-to-edge transition and the tail release is extremely quick thanks to its unique tail contour. _x000D_

FUNCTION

FLAT CAMBER

When riding in powder on traditional cambered boards, the nose drags snow due to its own camber system and eventually would sink into snow. To prevent it from nosediving, the rider is forced to lean back and turn only with the tail. This phenomena also happen in three dimensional terrain. Like when making a non-gravity turn at the top of a wall, the traditional camber turns convex “against” the terrain, forcing the edge and the rail to go in a different direction than the targeted line. Once again, the rider is forced to lean back or turn using the edge, restricting the freedom of riding.

This restriction is silly to have on boards for complex terrain. This camber system came from the skiing know-how. We’ve adopted it and refined it to match our flat camber system in order to allow freer maneuverability in complex three-dimensional terrain. The weightless sensation when making a top-turn, and resistance-free riding, especially late in a turn, are the distinct characteristics of our flat camber system.
