Endeavor Archetype - 2018


Manufacturer's Description:

As our E-Tech IV powder board the Archetype has been designed to dominate in the steep and deep.

After years of R&D in our Archetype Lab we finally settled on the perfect shape. The kicked swallow tail cuts through powder like a fork through ice cream yet has the stability to pop a natural feature and land with confidence.

30mm of taper into the tail gives epic maneuverability making the Archetype nimble through the trees even in bigger sizes whilst the wider nose won‰۪t sink when you reach an open powder field. A setback stance combined with radial sidecuts also allows you to dig trenches on hardpack and keep up with the best of them.

Our blended Poplar and Paulownia wood core is more responsive than our traditional wood core to increase performance without adding weight. Carbon Vs are also added to the tail to increase stability and prevent you from washing out so whether you’re laying down a turn on hardpack or stomping a cliff drop it will be there for you. Seamless Sidewalls also get upgraded to version 2 which utilizes a better manufacturing method that produces less waste while keeping the incredible vibration and impact absorbing properties of our infused urethane design. This is all finished off with The Channel mounting system for infinite stance adjustment.

Tested and proven in the backcountry of British Columbia, the Archetype is truly one of a kind.
