Are you looking for a big-mountain board to hit deep powder in steep situations? The Pencil from Korua Shapes is the biggest offering in their line and it's easy to see why. With an over-sized nose to promote float built on a hybrid camber profile, this board's bread and butter is agile turns in deep powder. Conditions not playing ball? Not to worry, we've ridden this on-piste at the resort and it doesn't lack in versatility, laying down some of the most satisfying carves we experienced.
Aside from looking cool and distinctive, the swallow tail on the Pencil prevents tail drag and sinking in deeper powder while promoting edge-to-edge response so you can negotiate tight sections with ease. The unique camber profile also helps this, with camber underfoot blended to an early rise rocker in the nose, generating power in your turns from the back foot is extremely rewarding with the Pencil.
