Add Nicholas Wolken's carving creativity, Stefan 'Mu' Maurer's freestyle genius, a ton of board building knowledge and some Japanese inspiration, and you have Korua. Unique shapes which kill it on the piste and for freeriding, all backed up with the quality of European production and reasonable prices. Zero G straight loves Korua.
The Pencil Splitboard is great for speedier turns and effortless edge to edge transitions in deep powder. It feels quite reactive and shorter than it actually is. Designed to keep the speed coming out of deep pow turns, the pointy nose keeps the spray out of your face and allows a smooth initiation of turns. It features Plum clips, nose and tail hooks,...
Plus stands for additional quality and performance. By merging the most premium materials with one of their favorite shapes, Korua aimed to build the best snowboard possible. Korua upgraded the base material, wood core, and top sheet to create a lighter, faster and more responsive version of their favorite soft boot carving board.
The beautiful Dart is a replacement for the Apollo & Pencil favourites, which have been taken out of the line. A generous waist width complements the Tugboat-inspired tail, which sinks well in pow (thereby raising the nose for maximum floatation) and hangs on to the end of turns.
The Otto 57 is Korua's most 'normal' shaped board...but it's a spectacular performer in all conditions. Don't let the twintip style shape fool you - this board is a setback, fully-directional masterpiece with camber along the length of the deck and a rocker beneath the nose. Made for turning.
The Café Racer is a softboot carving board, ideal for tight, aggressive turns when tearing up resort groomers. The full camber on this board gives you more grip in turns from tip to tail, and rides like a train on tracks. A good board to learn how to carve properly but also able to handle the perfect turns of a powerful experienced rider.
