CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE
The table in the specifications section provides a general size recommendation for packed snow conditions. As long you fall within this range, your snowboard will suit you just fine.
However, you may want your board to be on the longer or shorter side of the spectrum depending on your personal preference and riding style. Those that will mainly be riding freestyle (park) may want their snowboard a few centimeters shorter than usual. This helps increase flex and maneuverability. Those planning to ride in heavy powder my want to increase their board size by a few centimeters to help it float better. You can read more about finding the right size board for you here
Blank snowboards use sandwich construction, unlike the cheaper cap construction used in the manufacturing of many other snowboards, but for a similar price. Blank combines the finest materials including a 100% poplar wood core, triaxial fiberglass, carbon fiber beams, PE topsheet, rubber foil, ABS sidewalls, extruded base and a Rockwell stainless steel edge. In a retail store, a snowboard made with the same materials would cost around twice the price of a Blank snowboard. That's because you're also paying for retail markup, a graphic you may not even like, and someone else's sponsorship. Blank snowboards were created to give everyone a chance to buy a high-quality snowboard at an affordable price.
This snowboard features "traditional", "regular", or "positive" camber which evolved from ski design and was actually the only available bend until recent years.
The center of a traditional snowboard has a slight arch which causes the tip and tail to touch the ground while the center is raised. Once the rider applies her/his weight to the board the arch flattens and the full edge makes contact the snow. This allows for more powerful and precise turning, more "pop", and greater control at high speeds. Traditional camber boards are preferred for all-mountain and free-ride styles and by experienced riders that enjoy fast speeds.
Blank snowboards are compatible with standard 4-hole pattern snowboard bindings. We use the most common pattern which is a 2x4 (see image below), so most bindings will fit our boards. Binding base plates can also easily be swapped to fit almost any board.
This boards is twin-tip allowing riders to ride equally well in both directions. For a full detailed description, see the specs at the bottom of this page.
For those of you who love all the details, below is a table with many specs you may want to know about your future Blank board. In addition, we have included illustrations of each dimension for reference.
