Prior Khyber - 2016


Manufacturer's Description:

The Khyber has been the long running ride of choice amongst the local Whistler community on those deep, coastal days!  Its drastic tail taper allows this directional shape to truly excel in the deepest of conditions; with 25mm of taper in the tail, the back end sinks to relieve back end pressure and leg burn. Combined with a large shovel, the Khyber creates ample float and provides a really surf inspired ride. The Khyber features our Hybrid Rocker Design; rocker in the nose and tail provide added floatation while maintaining traditional camber underfoot for stability and rebound. Its name is derived from the infamous Khyber trees that face our Whistler Facility; the Khyber is guaranteed to produce face-shots!

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.

Hybrid Rocker Profile: Provides flotation and predictability in powder and silky smooth transitions from edge-to-edge with excellent edge control. 2-4 mm of traditional camber underfoot provides energy from turn-to-turn.

Rider Type: Riders of all abilities looking to maximize their powder pleasures with a versatile stick. It naturally suits riders who demand no back leg burn and a quick-turning, surfy ride. 

Best For: Tight Trees, powder, gladed runs, pillow lines, chutes, backcountry.

Recommended for big mountain riding.
