Prior Pow Stick - 2016


Manufacturer's Description:

The Pow Stick, Prior’s swallowtail, is the king of big mountain directional powder boards. The behaviour and performance of this board is the result of years of research and development and can be attributed to the nose shape/profile that allows for effortless floatation. The swallowtail breaks down resistance and allows for a more natural stance without the dreaded back leg burn. In a class of its own, it has set the standard by which all big mountain powder boards strive to attain. With limited taper and a long effective edge, the Pow Stick is surprising edge to edge and efficient in variable snow conditions; the tails also flex independently to increase mobility and provide a smooth transition to finish the turn.

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. It also allows the board to initiate sooner. Traditional camber in the tail provides additional power when driving off the back foot.

Rider Type: Directional riders who have a fetish for untracked, open bowl powder.

Best For: Open powder bowls and glades…the deeper the better. Also rips the groomers like a carving machine.

Recommended for big mountain riding.
