Pretty much unchanged from 2010, the Palmer Crown is an expert freeride and boardercross snowboarder’s dream machine. The Crown is a complete missile at speed with unmatched stability and edge hold, and a sintered base so fast you’ll leave it unwaxed just so you don’t break through the sound barrier. For aggressive expert snowboarders only.

Palmer say the Burn is soft enough for freestyle… firstly there’s the matter of what kind of freestyle it’s soft enough for. In all honesty the Burn is a beast of a snowboard, take it into the pipe and there’s no doubting the Burn will smoke it in the Andy Finch matter of speaking, this board will go BIG. Then there’s kickers and hips, the burn will dominate these features but don’t expect forgiving takeoffs and landings this is a precision instrument designed to provide pop huge and ride out rutted and moguled landings, but given half a chance it will buck you off like a prize Bull. The Palmer Burn takes no prisoners.

In the Saga, Palmer meets tip to tail radial rocker, a combination even the most open-minded Palmer fan wouldn’t have imagined in their wildest dreams.

Flash wohooo savior of the universe. The Flash Gordon of boardercross snowboarding Mr Shaun Palmer is really steering Palmer Snowboards down the freestyle snowboard route.

The usual Palmer quality manifests itself in prepreg laminates, a 4400 grade Isospeed base, the Smart FLF Rocker shape and a full length tip to tail poplar core.

Easy to initiate turns, stable when the speed gets turned up and progressive in the park. The Palmer Halo is everything beginner to intermediate female snowboarders need to learn and improve. So good, even the Pope wants one of these Halos.

The Liberty is Palmer’s all-mountain / freeride snowboard designed specifically for women. Last year the directional shape, Nomex inserts and Prepreg glass laminates made the Liberty a superlight and aggressive ride perfect for strong female freeriders. This year sees the addition of Smart FLF rocker to the Liberty. Much like Atomic’s Pop rocker, loading the camber through the turns moves the edge contact points along the edge, improving edge control and grip.

Palmer’s Crown LE is without doubt the most exhilarating high speed snowboard I have ever ridden, with unmatched stability at speeds which usually feel like balancing on a knife edge. The Crown LE loves effortless long carves but is also responsive to aggressive riding styles. Lightweight and stiff: torsionally and through the length of the board, with a spec as long as your arm. Extremely impressive.

A popular choice for those with money. the Honeycomb gets a bit of a bad rep for being a city traders weekend board, with the old stereotype of a man walking into a shop and asking for the most expensive board in the shop. Since the Palmer Platinum was released the Honeycomb has lost the stigma. Good news for actual snowboarders as it means you can buy an insanely light, super responsive and lightening quick snowboard without the ridicule. The Palmer Honeycomb is an all-mountain snowboard geared more towards experienced freeriders.
