BIG MOUNTAIN FREESTYLE BOARD THAT TAKES THE PARK TO THE BACKCOUNTRY

It’s difficult trying to categorise Slash’s Brainstorm. Get it out and about around the mountain and it gives you all the power and response of a big mountain charger. However, get it in the air and off side hits, and you’ve got all the agility and balance of a twin tip freestyle board. But one thing is for sure, no matter what you want to call the Brainstorm, the reality is that Slash has created a genuinely unique snowboard that delivers mind-blowing performance across a wide spectrum of riding styles and conditions. Whether hitting up the backcountry, charging groomers or playing around in the park this unique high-performance Transworld Good Wood winning board will feel entirely at home.

Rider Style
Advanced to expert riders looking for a freeride board that delivers the balance and control of a freestyle board.

Shape Overview
The Brainstorm utilises an advanced all-terrain twin tip shape that has been designed to deliver a unique balance of freeride performance and freestyle control. Both the nose and tail feature an extended profile which gives almost powder board levels of float, but thanks to the blunt shape, it delivers that float without overly compromising swing weight. However, the Brainstorm isn’t just about powder and freestyle. Thanks to the progressive sidecut and Ultimate Traction edges, it delivers a level of performance on groomers that is nothing short of outstanding. The progressive sidecut design blends multiple radii and smooth contact points for buttery turn initiation, edge-to-edge transition and edge hold, while the Ultimate Traction edges place a small counter radius (bump) in the middle of the board’s sidecut, improving edge hold without creating drag or strange edge grip. The

Profile
Key to the Brainstorm’s versatile performance is the advanced Backseat CamRock profile. This combines a more extended and higher rocker in the nose, a shorter lower rocker in the tail and a setback camber profile under the feet. This combination gives incredible float at the front of the board with a powerful and responsive dynamic ride under the feet.

Construction
Internally the Brainstorm utilises some of the most advanced construction on the market, and heading this up is the state of the art Forever wood core. Constructed from four different lightweight wood species—paulownia, spruce, beech and poplar, it delivers a highly tuned and dynamic feel. Being lightweight, durable and filled with pop, this highly reactive woodcore is the perfect foundation for the Brainstorm. To this Slash then add structural layers created from a mix of Tri-Ax glass on the upper band and Bi-Ax glass on the lower band. This combination gives the perfect balance of playful freestyle flex through the length but with a more powerful and responsive torsional flex. Now to provide the board with that extra step up in power and response, Slash adds their Buried Treasure. Strategically placed carbon, Kevlar and basalt fibres are added to the tip and tail increasing torsional stiffness at the contact points while leaving the board pretty playful between the feet.

Base
The Brainstorm’s sintered base is fast, durable and requires less waxing. Factory waxed with One Ball Jay wax and ready to shred straight out of the wrapper.
