The all-mountain snowboard. Today pow, tomorrow tricks all day—so don’t you need two boards? No, the Prickly Pear is like a Chameleon. It changes with your surroundings. It has the perfect blend of ingredients and shape. The rock-solid feel you get from the full bamboo core and the poppy, playful feel that comes from the full layer of unidirectional carbon sets you free. The most versatile shape with rocker nose and tail, and zero camber in the middle, make it mucho versatile. The flex is just a smidgeon softer than the Tumbleweed for a more buttery feel.
RAMP Sports is a Park City based ski and snowboard company with handmade skis and snowboards factory direct. They are innovative in every effort to be environmentally and socially responsible and over-deliver on service and value. RAMP is using a modern vacuum-molding process modeled after aerospace processes. RAMP skis and snowboards are made with FSC certified bamboo wood cores. RAMP is using a core material that is 3 times as hard as poplar (what most companies use), but triple the cost. The result is a core that provides a dramatic improvement on the behavior of the ski. After their first year, they already have X Games, Dew Tour and Grand Prix medals and can boast a Freeskier Magazine Editor’s pick.
