A fast base, medium torsional and longitudinal flex and directional shape, result in an extremely versatile snowboard that’ll take you from the Slopestyle course to freeriding in super deep pow.
The Corporate Board is a powerful all mountain board that is one of our teams’ favorites. The Kicker II core with the Quadaxial fiberglass gives this board a great all around feel. The directional shape won’t let you down on the heavy pow landings and the ample inserts (14 per foot) allows a large variety of stance options for all types of terrain including those spring park days. If you live in an area that has heavy snowfall during the winter and nicely groomed parks in the spring time then this is the board for you. When we first introduced this graphic in the line 5 years ago there were a lot of creeps in the industry. We re-launched this board graphic this year cause not much has changed.
Available Lengths (cm):
148, 155, 158.5, 162.5, 158.5mW
Directional P3 (Park+Pipe+Powder) Shape
Structrum sintered base
Kicker 2 core (Poplar with denser Beach rails)
Armadillo Plate insert reinforcement
Wow the Stepchild Corporate is fast, the structrum sintered base is noticeably quicker than a lot of boards out there. Add a really damp underfoot feel and a medium torsional and longitudinal flex, you’ve got the Corporate. Another do-it-all board in the Burton Custom and Rome Solution stable. Don’t be put off by the slightly longer nose and pointed tip and tail, this board rides switch fine, although the initiation into turns is a little more aggressive. You can take the Stepchild Corporate down a slopestyle course and halfpipe. I only managed to take the Corporate through some heavy late spring fresh but the unique shape provided plenty of float. A fun board that’ll deal with anything you can throw at it from rails to backcountry booters.

I’m wanting a board that will get me all over the mountain as well as handling in the park. I’m 90kgs (200 lbs) and tall n lanky (6’4’‘) with size 12 US feet. Was wondering if the 162.5 would be too big to handle the park stuff and if I would be better off with a 158mw??

In the UK we’ve got a pro rider who’s 6’1” and 86 Kg called Danny Wheeler, the guys got mad skills in the park and he rides a 165, you’re 4 Kg heavier and 3 inches taller. I have a feeling a 162 will be fine providing the boards got the width on it you need. I think 158 will be too short for you.

Yo I’m lookin for a rad all mountain board that will step right from the pow to the rails and jumps, as well as will ride switch just as easy as regular. I’m 5,9, 180 lbs, u think the 158.5 would suite me? Got a size 10 foot.
