CAMBER & ROCKERConfusion free camber line choices: Each camber line is unique in feel and performance. Finding the right camber line for you is about understanding where, when and how you want to ride. Use the force or our guide, young padawan. Geometry and camber line are the two most impactful characteristics on how a shred will ride so that‘s how we break it down for you. Surfing spines on directional Camrock or nailing switch hardways on twin Hybrid-V, what‘s your style?
Burly man-camber, designed for maximum edge hold and explosive pop. Pop Camber is best suited to highend shreds where performance is paramount. It’s hard work to ride well, but being slingshot out of carves and launched high above the coping is all the reward you’ll ever need. SNOWBOARDS | UNW8, Pentaquark SKIS | Time Machine
DIRECTIONAL CRUISE CAMBER
A half-fat camber for all-mountain dominance. Cruise Camber’s toned-down dimensions deliver a precise and lively feel much like Pop Camber, but with much improved deep snow performance and a more “broken-in” feel out of the shrink-wrap. In Amplid’s directional snowboards and skis a touch of early rise is added to Cruise Camber to improve buoyancy even further.

S-Rocker, the ultimate freeride camber-line, features a blend of cleverly placed camber and rocker. Rocker in the nose aids floatation and improves deep snow agility. A conservative amount of set-back camber improves tail hold in icy conditions and adds stiffness just where you need it; for stomping big landings, styling dramatic slashes and scrubbing speed.

Amplid’s Camrock profile blends underfoot camber with rocker tips. A length of camber under the boot provides grip and reverse camber in the tips increases playfulness and deep snow performance. This ski-specific camber manifests itself in various forms in Amplid’s skis; skis intended for deep snow have a smaller camber area and increased rocker to improve floatation and fluidity.

Hybrid-V has a rocker section between the bindings and camber under the inserts. It’s a loose, easy to pivot and effortless to pop camber-line, that works best with freestyle snowboards. The addition of camber to this predominantly rockered profile significantly improves edge hold, stability and ollie-power. SNOWBOARDS | Stereo, GoGo
