Prior Spearhead - 2016


Manufacturer's Description:

The Spearhead provides arguably the most versatile Freeride performance in the Prior powder board lineup. Big alpine bowls to trees, the Spearhead handles it all! The Spearhead’s elongated nose and surf inspired nose rocker profile provide unparalleled float and non catch, edge to edge turn ability. Its moderate sidecut, taper and cambered tail gives enhanced performance and drive, especially when powering off the back foot. The Spearhead is named after the powder filled Spearhead range which sits just behind Blackcomb Mountain here in Whistler and much of the Spearhead R&D was done in its chutes.

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 driving off the back foot.

Rider Type: The big mountain powder rider who wants a board that excels in the powder yet performs everywhere.

Best For: Powder, wide open bowls, glades, trees, crud, and variable snowpack.
