ALL TERRAIN CHARGER THAT THINKS IT’S A FREESTYLE BOARD

The Kwon has been one of our favourite boards for a few years now, sitting quietly beneath the radar, this stunning all-terrain destroyer has become the board of choice for discerning riders who are looking for high-end performance without having to break the bank to get it. Built around a versatile directional shape the Kwon ticks all the all-terrain boxes. However, what takes the Kwon from being merely a good board into a great board is its combination of Action Camber profile, and powerful Basalt V-Booster reinforced construction. This high-quality design and build creates a powerful and dynamic board that is equally happy when you’re charging hard as it is cruising around the mountain. Finally, the Kwon has one final trick up its sleeve, let’s not forget that it’s from the DWD stable, so you don’t have to dig too deep to find the spirit of a freestyle board lurking in its DNA.

Rider Style

All-terrain riders who are looking for a high-performance, ride anything and everywhere board, but who still like that little bit of freestyle feel.

Shape Overview

Utilising an advanced directional shape with a slight taper, the Kwon delivers a predictable and stable ride, cementing its all-terrain credentials. Also, as part of the Kwon redesign last season DWD gave it an elliptical sidecut. This blend of multi-radii from the tip to the tail helps initiate turns while powering up the tail for increased drive out of the turn.

Profile

As the Kwon is all about performance, it utilises the responsive Action Camber profile. This complex combination of rocker at the tip and tail, flat camber to the inserts and traditional camber between the feet delivers the perfect characteristics for riding everything on the mountain. Floaty at the nose, solid and stable between the feet and poppy and lively off those flat sections.

Construction

When it comes to construction, the Kwon steps it up a level compared to the rest of the DWD range. Heading it up is the lively poplar and birch core. This responsive wood core gives the perfect balance of freestyle feel but with a snappy flex through the length. Now to ensure that the Kwon sacrifices none of its park credentials, DWD creates the structural layers from a more forgiving bi-ax weave glass with Bio Resin. This gives the board a more playful overall feel, but thanks to the addition of the new Basalt V Bracing from the contact points to the insert pack, it delivers this softer ride without compromising any of its responsive and powerful flex.

Base

To finish off the Kwon, DWD fit a super-fast high quality sintered base.
