Our quiver-killing shortboard
This quiver-killer is the board you grab everyday, and it doesn’t matter if it’s pristine morning corduroy, sidehits with friends, intimidating icy steeps or bottomless pow, you’ll have the best board imaginable for the day. It defines the notion of versatility, delivering great performance in all snow conditions.
We call this our shortboard as it's snappy, fast & rides much shorter than its length would imply. You’ll have the maneuverability of a 156 yet enjoy both the carving stability and float in powder of a much longer board.
Compared to the rest of the line, the 5’5 hits the sweet spot combining the freestyle fun vibes of the 5’2 and the big line stability of the 6’+. If that wasn’t enough, for further customization, we have three different flexes available. Choose one according to your weight and riding style: the regular 5’5 for a more freestyle flex, the 5’5 + for a stiffer all mountain ride, and the ++ for our stiffest flex, that will please former hardbooters and snowboard x racers.
This is the most popular flex of our best selling board – you could call the 5’5+ the people’s choice! The reason is simple, this is the most versatile board in the line. The even flex offers stability at speed, power in turns, and a solid chassis for landings. From big mountain lines to dreamy Japanese tree runs, the 5’5+ has no limit.
Better lift, without the sensation of length, this is the advantage of the Dupraz shape.

Profile and camber
Thanks to the famous Aquasmooth Rocker (from which the entire snowboard and ski industry was inspired), the spatula guarantees the absorption of the irregularities of the terrain and an almost instantaneous de-icing in powder snow.
Nothing beats a good and solid wood core combined with tri-axial fibreglass, rubber reinforcements above the edges, which ensure the glueing between the steel of the edges and the fibreglass. But they also serve as shock absorbers. The whole thing is assembled with a sole and thick edges to allow you to maintain your board for a long time!
