A new addition for 1314, the BOSS is to the EVIL TWIN what the GLOBAL WARMER was to the AIROBIC: A GTI version! We took the shape and construction of the EVIL TWIN and tricked it out, making it even more poppy, responsive and fun.
The BOSS is a twin in both outline and contact shapes. Featuring the CORE CORE, which is a poplar wood core with two hardwood inserts running parallel to the edges and along the insert rows. These increase the core strength along the inserts while channeling stored elastic energy to deliver more pop. We gave the core a mid flex and used core profiling to produce a flex pattern that is slightly softer outside the bindings than between them. This keeps the BOSS super poppy, while a stiffer core between the bindings keep the BOSS stable at high speeds. The core is wrapped in TRI-AX laminate layers. One layer runs along the board’s length and the other two make angles of 45 degrees with this layer, being perpendicular to each other. The two perpendicular layers increase the torsional stiffness of the BOSS, making it more responsive and even more stable at high speeds.
We also added carbon! Like the GW, the stringers run between the edges, reinforcing the binding area, but now they also cross over underneath your feet. These still further reinforce the inserts and general binding area as well as focusing elastic energy to magnify pop, but because they now cross over, the stringers now also contribute to further torsional reinforcement. This stops the BOSS from getting twitchy at even the highest speeds without it becoming as stiff as a door! The result is a board that has a mid flex, both torsionally and along its length.
Being symmetrical about the nose and tail, TWIN TBT is great for park riding! The centre base (non TBT) section features a smoothly curving camber profile as opposed to a trapezoidal one. This makes the BOSS brilliant for carving and general riding. The side base (TBT) uplift on TWIN TBT begins just outside the bindings for a longer contact length when sliding on a flat base, making it more stable at high speeds. The centre base section is narrower than either JIB or PARK TBT and the total side base uplift is higher. This makes the BOSS more agile on edge changes, more playful when piste riding and buttering as well as giving it better float through powder.
The BOSS has LIGHTNING EDGES. These are thinner and our lightest edges, enabling you to carve with better feeling and exacting precision. The inserts have a PARTY PATTERN: 24 holes give the largest range of possible stance widths and ultimate control over the exact placement of your bindings. The BOSS rocks a sintered base for maximum hardness and higher terminal velocities so long as it is kept properly maintained. Perfect for milking speed on slushy spring park laps and backcountry kickers.
The graphic features mythical creatures and horror film monsters overlaid with a message we recently tried to beam to aliens. No reply as yet. Basically, if you liked the EVIL TWIN, you will love the BOSS! We expect the team to go mad for it and you probably will too!
