2023 Yes. Basic Uninc. RDM Snowboard
Always wanting to expose our society’s incoherence through a cheeky lens, Romain has worked with Kallonji showing us that we are all running after a carrot. Is the race worth it is the question? The Basic UnInc RDM is a supercharged Basic with all the upgrades you want to have on a classic board. It comes in a camber with sintered base and Yes added some slamback inserts to make it the ultimate all-round board.
Camber – Camber is the base of snowboarding: you need to have an edge hold long enough to drive in and out of turns, the Camber acts as a shock absorber on cars they push the wheels into the road to enhance grip. The camber does exactly that to the edge. Allowing you to drive your turns longer and release later.
Flex Rating – 7/10 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)
UnderBite – Better edge hold and easier turns. Redistributing rider weight and input power, UnderBite enhances turning ease and edge hold. By having the edge pulled in a couple of millimeters at the binding area acts like a gas pedal or a serrated knife, enhancing the cutting power of the edge. While you are turning on hard packed snow you need an insertion point to ease the edge. Then you need the edge to drive. We only have a couple inlays because once you’ve engaged your edge you are driving your turn. UnderBite allows you to have that extra leverage to apply power to the edge where you want to. From nose to tail you have a better edge control and a smoother drive.
Poplar / Paulownia / Bamboo + Slambacks – Creates a lighter, more responsive core than the Full Poplar. The Poplar + Bamboo uses the same durable core, lightens it up by replacing 30% of the Poplar with Paulownia and then inserts two bamboo stringers down the full length for added pop and response.
Sintered True – Pellets or course powder is pressed until it forms a solid. There are several suppliers for our entire industry and they each have different codes for them, depending on the color and transparency. These codes can make it seem like you’re getting many different kinds and grades of sintered but they’re all pretty much the same as far as you and I will ever tell. True Sintered is harder and more expensive than extruded and it can be faster for those that ride aggressively fast. But to do that, it needs to be waxed and prepared for local conditions.
