Prior Fissile - 2016


Manufacturer's Description:

The Fissile was designed to float like a long-board that turns on a dime. Its elongated nose and 6.5m turning radius offer a ride that emulates surfing waves and is guaranteed to produce face shots, thanks to its pointy nose! Blunt noses take away floatability as they are designed to reach a maximum effective edge. Just take a look at our alpine race boards!

Taking inspiration from Founder/Head Designer Chris Prior’s surfing roots, the Fissile is almost unsinkable in the deepest conditions and the ride of choice for the man behind the Prior Brand. It’s suggested to ride the Fissile about 8-10cms longer than your current ride as the elongated nose doesn’t touch down unless you’re in the deep stuff! This shape naturally lends itself to soul riders and powder hounds at heart.

The Fissile is named after a large, prominent peak located behind Whistler Mountain that contains perhaps the biggest couloirs in the whole valley.

XCK Carbon-Kevlar Construction is available as an upgrade to all Prior snowboards and saves an average of 500 grams (1lb 1oz) off a Prior snowboard pressed with our standard Triaxial Fiberglass.

Profile-Nose Rocker: Provides floatation and predictability in powder of all kinds, while it also allows the board to initiate sooner. Traditional camber in the tail provides additional power to drive off your back foot.

Rider Type: Powder Connoisseurs of the finest order.

Best For: Powder of all kinds combined with tight trees, chutes and open bowls.
