Drake Snowboards are designed in Italy using the highest quality laminates, the most durable and responsive cores, and the fastest, toughest bases. Offering versatile boards to appeal to multiple riding styles and ability levels, our line has something for everyone.
This wood core was specifically designed for medium flex boards. The slightly stiff center of the core is structured to make side-edge turns simple, and allow you to control the board with ease. Its perfect flex allows you to explore all types of terrain, providing the ideal range of use from beginners to intermediate.
Features - Empire board:
- Shape: Directional - The tip of a directional snowboard is different from its tail. The tail is usually narrower, shorter, and flatter that the tip of the board. Stance is offset toward the tail of the board. These boards are primarily meant to be ridden in one direction.
- Core: Combo (see above)
- Base: E2000. Extruded base for a good entry level board. This makes for a consistent, smooth ride thatís durable and long lasting.
- Sidecut: Transitional - This unique sidecut consists of two concentric circle arcs. The first arc initiates and finalizes your carve to make it smooth and easy, while the second arc helps hold an edge between the start and finish of your carve. The result is constant distribution of pressure while riding, resulting in clean, fluid, carves at high speeds. Dual progressive. The progressive sidecut increases your turning dynamics, by tracking along radius turns and snaps toe to heel with sharper response.
- Fiberglass: Biax - glass fibers are positioned at 90į off-axis to transmit soft torsion stiffness for an easy carving ride.
Features - Fifty bindings:
Super lightweight baseplate with adjustable aluminum heelcup for perfect boot to binding centering and fit.
- Baseplate: Delta light, engineered with the highest quality aluminum and fiber reinforced nylon. This ultra light weight baseplate was designed to enhance response and board feel. The weight on this baseplate was dramatically reduced by removing heavy plastic and replacing it with an EVA dampening pad..
- Ankle strap: Super MFC - Comfort, response, and flex in a luxuriously constructed strap. New internal padding for extra flex and coheason with boot and binding interface.
- Toestrap: Surround - highly padded dual function toe straps for superior comfort, with choice of preferred style to wear over or across the toe of the boot.
- Hi-back: Contour - A perfect mix of torsion, lightness, and response. This highback is comfortable, forgiving and doesnít compromise support.
- Disc: Classic - The original Drake disc that mounts on 4-hole and 3-hole pattern without any hassles! Donít waste time looking for ways to rig a custom stance. The classic gives you the option to personalize your drake binding setup with any board brand you ride.
