The Custom is the original all-mountain snowboard. No board other board in snowboarding’s relatively short history has been as successful or as popular with the average rider. This doesn’t mean that the Custom can’t perform; Nico Muller wouldn’t use it as his ‘go to’ board if that was the case. Unlike the Custom’s slightly more popular and trendy brother the ‘Custom Flying V’ the normal Custom has a camber profile and is consequently a little less playful and buttery but more powerful and grippy in turns and poppier when you load it. If your focus is charging around the mountain at high speeds, grazing your chin on icy slopes when carving and boosting out of the pipe, but you’re not quite ready for the stiffness of the Custom X, then this is the Custom you should buy. If your focus is a little more freestyle orientated and you want a board that is a little looser and playful then go for the Custom Flying V.
“The one-board answer to all terrain.”
The Custom is the yardstick that all other models are measured by. Team riders and testers are backing the Squeezebox core design, which transitions from thinner and more maneuverable underfoot to thicker and more powerful between and outside the feet—delivering added pop, snap, and handling. Available in two versions, camber is the precise choice for Nicolas Müller while Mikkel Bang switches it up, often running the “best of both worlds” hybrid Flying V.
