Profile snowboard

What types of snowboards are there, and which one fits me best?

Flat rocker: This means that the board runs flat at the bottom. It is not as direct as a camber but also not as forgiving as a rocker. Do you want something from both worlds? In addition to the choice of hybrid camber/rocker, there is also a flat rocker.

The camber profile: The shape of this snowboard is also referred to as positive preload. The contact points press deep into the snow, giving the board instant response and plenty of edge grip when driving a turn. A camber profile is chosen for boarders who can carve well or want to learn carving.

The rocker profile: So with a rocker profile you have the opposite principle and thus a negative preload. The contact points come free and do not dig into the snow. The board reacts less directly and is a lot more forgiving than a camber profile. Beginners learn to snowboard with a rocker profile. This type of board is also suitable in the park.

Hybrid camber: This is a combination of a camber and a rocker. The board is somewhat still forgiving and also offers the ability to build pressure with the positive preload of the camber section. In other words, a true all-rounder among snowboards.

Hybrid rocker: This is another combination between camber and rocker. Here the rocker profile prevails and camber is located where the bindings are mounted rather than in between. Compared to a hybrid camber, this combination of camber and rocker is the slightly more challenging version.

Backseat camber: This is generally located in a directional board. The rocker nose at the front gives plenty of float off the piste and the camber at the back of the board gives enough pressure and preload to still make nice deep turns.

Triple base: With this type of board you have the advantages of a camber profile but still the forgiveness of a rocker. The technique behind this is in the folded contact points of the snowboard. These contact points are folded up, freeing the steel edges.
