GrassRoot

$749.99

The GrassRoot comes from the inner mind of the “board builder”. A break from the jive marketing terms that companies use to describe the same materials. The board builder can see through the sweet wordsmithed tech each company. The reality is many boards on the market are outsourced, likely come from the same, small grouping of factories, and likely even share some of the tooling. To someone who appreciates craftsmanship, pride in their work; pride in our sport of snowboarding; this is weak sauce. How else could a company really know what goes into their boards? How else could a company know what a one species of wood feels like in hand vs. another and how that would translate onto the slope. How does a company that outsources their main product really know how to make a great riding board without having the hands on understanding of each detail that goes into a snowboard. The GrassRoot, without apology opens the door to new thinking, new understanding, and new sight into how snowboards are built. The GrassRoot is only available to be made to order, in house from our showroom. Want to see your board being built? This isn’t a shelf product that you buy, this is an experience. Step into the mind of the source.

Purpose

The GrassRoot comes from the inner mind of the “board builder”. A break from the jive marketing terms that companies use to describe the same materials. The board builder can see through the sweet wordsmithed tech each company invents. The reality is many boards on the market are outsourced, likely come from the same small grouping of factories, and likely even share some of the tooling. To someone who appreciates craftsmanship, pride in their work; pride in our sport of snowboarding; this is weak sauce.

How else could a company really know what goes into their boards? How else could a company know what one species of wood feels like in hand vs. another and how that would translate onto the slope. How does a company that outsources their main product really know how to make a great riding board without having the hands on understanding of each detail that goes into a snowboard.

The GrassRoot, without apology opens the door to new thinking, new understanding, and new sight into how snowboards are built. The GrassRoot is only available to be made to order, in house from our showroom. Want to see your board being built? This isn’t a shelf product that you buy, this is an experience.

Materials

  • Pick your wood core – We have a range of woods that we have experimented with over the years. You pick your configuration with the goal in mind: Pop, light weight, durability, stability. We have configurations and you get to know exactly what is in your board.
  • Premium Plastics – The outside of the boards use different plastics depending on a company’s budget goal, performance target, or desired look.  This only uses the highest quality, Imported from Austria, Isospeed 7200 base and Iso8210 topsheet from Isosport.
  • Resin – The GrassRoot uses american sourced epoxy that designed specifically for the ski and board industry to be extremely tough. Learn what the difference is and how epoxy works to make these boards.
  • Carbon Stringers – We have multiple carbon layouts that change a boards riding characteristics. And not all carbon fiber is created equal. Learn what carbon fiber really goes into your boards and other products.
  • Pick your Flex – We have a range of material choices to hit your flex target to hit your ideal riding style and body type. Learn that “easy flex” isn’t always great for the way you ride and get a real board fitting.

Shape

  • CRC: Camber Rocker Combo  Our most innovative deck in the lineup.  The secret… Camber between the feet, contact points at the bindings, and rocker outside the feet.
  • Constantly Rad Sidecut -Engineered directly to work with our CRC camber profile is our constant Radius sidecut puts the entire edge on the surface making the Tangent RC a carving machine on groomers.  More edge contact = More Grip…   This is by far our most favored benefit that our riders love about the Tangent.
  • True Twin Snowboard – The True twin shape of Prospect snowboards is built to work with the carbon fiber X beams built into the tip and tail.  With a centered it is a freestyle deck with even pop.  Setting the stance back for powder and freeride decreases the amount of carbon past your back foot and increases the amount of carbon in front of you.  This gives a little more flex in back to float on powder and stiffness up front for stability.  Our true twin decks exclusively have this engineering built in.
  • Volcanic Basalt Laminate – Replaces glass with a higher strength to weight ratio, volcanic rock sourced, basalt weave for lighter weight, flexible durability, and overall performance.
  • Triple Dampened Sintered Sidewall. First we used tank tough, domestically sourced sintered sidewalls. Then  we wrapped our sidewall on all 3 inner sides with vibration dampening strips (VDS) for the most durable, stable, chatterless feel.
