Verdad DJ 157 2020 Snowboard
The Verdad DJ 157 2020 Snowboard is the ultra all-mountain freestyle snowboard from Antwerp based high-end snowboard company Verdad Snowboards. Ideal for the advanced to expert snowboarder. The DJ stands for Demir Julia, the founder of Verdad and features a Classic camber profile and twin shape. Made to dominate powder, piste & park. This Black Panther is a symbol for power, stability & speed, at home in nature, its habitat.
Terrain: All-Mountain Freestyle
This snowboard can handle the highest speeds on the piste and remains super stable and responsive. This is due to a combination of factors. The Classic camber profile, the higher flex and the extra carbon, kevlar and bamboo play an important role in this. The DJ also has a classic Twin shape, so you can go freestyle in all directions. Perfect for popping slopes at mach 3, carving, hitting jumps and chasing nice off-piste powder.
Profile: Classic Camber
The camber profile of your board determines its stiffness, and how fast it will respond. The Classic camber gives your snowboard a lot of response, pop and a smooth edge change. It reacts extremely fast to your actions, springs with you when you want to jump, and carves with precision in big and small turns.
Shape: OG Twin
This board is completely OG Twin, which means that it is 100% symmetrical in every way. Both in terms of stiffness, flex and outline shape. This has a lot of advantages. You can easily switch (with the wrong foot in front). This is an important aspect when you land a 180 from a jump or want to ride a switch.
For the slope eaters among us, an OG Twin is also very nice to switch sides and to blast down the mountain in a new way.
The flex rating of this snowboard determines for a large part how it will react.
The flex rating is given on a scale from 1, extremely flexible to 10, extremely stiff. The higher the flex rating, the more responsive your snowboard is, and the faster it will respond to your actions. Easy to compare with car racing on a circuit. 1 to 2 is a family car that's forgiving and chill, while 6 to 7 is a Formula 1 car that responds to every nudge.
7/10 Flex is in the higher class of stiffness. This gives you an extremely stable ride, especially when you are riding fast. The response of a 7/10 flex board is also higher than average. The response of a 7/10 flex board is also much higher than average.
Level: Advanced to expertThe
flex rating, reinforcement, and base ofthis
board give it all the power that advanced to expert riders need. The extreme stiffness between the bindings provides optimum stability at high speeds. Specific carbon strips, kevlar and bamboo make the binding even more durable, and the sintered base lets you glide fast. This means that you can also enjoy this snowboard as a beginner, but then your level will have to grow a bit more to make the most of it.
Base: Sintered 10,000 BaseThe
base, or underside of this gem always consists of miniscule holes or pores. The Sintered base means there are more pores in the board so it will absorb and release more wax than an extruded base board. It costs a bit more, but when waxed properly, it glides a lot better. Especially on warm days and on flat sections you'll notice a big difference with a well waxed sintered base board.
Extras: Bamboo - Carbon - Kevlar - Diamond stone finish
The woodcore of this snowboard is reinforced with a wide range of extras.
These additions provide extra stiffness, stability and pop. The way the bamboo, kevlar and woodcore are treated, the wood core is reinforced with a thick layer of extra stiffness, stability and pop.
The way the bamboo, kevlar & carbon reinforcement is applied, all vibrations are absorbed, so you can focus on your next jump, carve or slide.
Diamond stone finish indicates how the board was ground in the factory. Verdad uses a Diamond Stone for a sharper, more consistent and durable result. Sharp edges provide optimum grip on snow and ice.
