Screen printed or ultrasonically cut inlaid bases with stone ground finish for high speed, easy repairs, and maximum wax absorption. Fast, tough and fixable.
7200 HIGH SPEED BASES
The inlaid 7200 graphite bases have computer-controlled stone ground or structured finishes and are super fast.
Carbon fiber strips give a board additional liveliness, and more pop, strength and edge grip. We place carbon fiber in special configurations to modify the board's longitudinal flex, torsional stiffness, and to improve power distribution from the bindings to the edges of the board.
SMART FLF SHAPE
FLF (Feels Like Flying) is the optimized interaction between the sidecut and the nose and tail surfaces. Klothoid represents the numerous radii (circles) that define the sidecut, and FLF extends these radii into the nose and tail kick. In practical terms this means more control and effortless handling, thanks to an optimized edge grip. FLF pushes edge-hold, stability and acceleration to a new standard of handling and safety.
Nomex Honeycomb core made of impregnated aramid fiber is ten times lighter than wood and has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Because Nomex™ is not affected by moisture, corrosion does not occur like it does with cores made of aluminum or paper. Our Honeycomb is filled with 99% air.
Steel edges for a powerful and long lasting edge grip.
Klothoid technology allows Palmer engineers to control the centrifugal forces riders experience as they turn. This unique multi-radii shape technology allows us to blend together as many different sidecut radii as needed to achieve an even easier, more forgiving and effortless board that delivers the highest riding performance ever.
POWER LINK SYSTEM (PLS)
PLS increases leverage over the edges and makes riding easier - a recommended upgrade for any board.
PREPREG/NCF (NON-CRIMP-FABRIC) PREPREG
Prepreg adds the perfect amount of glue exactly where it is needed and not a drop more. It ensures durability, long life, and consistency in flex and ride. Where other manufacturers use wet lamination to save money, Palmer maintains its commitment to quality by using prepreg in all boards. Prepreg allows us to deliver a finer product, helps maintain a safer workplace for our employees and minimizes our impact on the environment.
Full sidewall that's easy to fix.
Titanium offers the unique racing features of high power, dynamic rebound, incredible stability, and excellent dampening.
Three radii are blended together for smooth turn initiation, stable ride on edge, and quick, powerful exit snap into the next turn.
A snowboard or ski shape where the nose and tail are identically shaped and designed to be ridden forward and backwards. Most commonly used in freestyle riding.
UHMW PLASTIC BUMPERS
Lightweight tip and tail protectors for high impact ding resistance and lowest swing weight.
Vertically laminated beech/poplar or Okume woodcores for high strength, low weight, and optimal flexural properties. Tailored to each board's exact specs. Every model has its own special woodcore - different in wood type, shape, and composition.
