Carbon is lightweight, strong and looks beautiful. Carbon has the property that it is naturally brittle, but because of the newly designed inner frame, it can handle all challenges during winter sports and maintain its flexibility.
No, the Eruca carbon snowboards need to be waxed after it has been unpacked.
The sintered base keeps the wax longer and better attached than an extruded base, which reduces the friction and thus allows you to generate more speed. This is because in the production process of a sintered base, pores are created that hold wax better and longer. This also increases the lifespan.</span
Eruca recommends that both bindings are directed outwards by an angle of 15 degrees (“duck stance”) or to set your back leg between 0 and -15 degrees (“normal stance”). This is because the Eruca Stealth and Ipsum is a Freeride twintip model. This means that there is basically no front or back. Of course your preference will be determined by your standing leg, but Hybrid rocker snowboards are not made for “forward stance”.
This depends on length and weight, but also on the type of snowboard. The general rule for an Eruca carbon freeride snowboard length is the distance from floor to just below your chin. The table below gives a good indication of the weight.
In a hybrid shapes, the rocker and camber are combined to get the best of both together. The hybrid rocker is characterized by rocker between the bindings and then camber to the nose and tail.
The rocker between the bindings provides a lot of turning and buoyancy in the powder, while the camber to the nose and tail in turn provides grip on the track and stability.
In general, these boards feel most like a rocker snowboard, but with increased stability and grip thanks to the camber in nose and tail.
These shapes are very popular with the all-mountain snowboarders who like all aspects of snowboarding, both freestyle and freeride, or just enjoy cruising pistes.
• Allmountain (both freestyle and freeride)
• Easy side change
• Good float in the powder
• More grip
• Slightly less grip and stability than a camber snowboard
