The Basic Legend Yes Snowboard have been TESTED, PROVEN, & AWARD-STACKED. Developed as a go-to, ride-it-all deck, the Basic has been refined over the years to the point that both pros and newbies reach for it on a regular basis. The UnderBite outline extracts more arc, more hold and a better carving experience out of every design we apply it to and the Basic was the genesis of it all.
UnderBite edges re-distribute a rider’s weight in such a way that it enhances turning ease and edge hold. Creating divots inward at the binding area reduces and disrupts the surface area of the edge that has contact with the snow while the board is turning. This increases the edge pressure by distributing your weight/energy in the areas where you need it - from the binding out, and through the center of the board where the carving arc is taking place. This segmentation of the sidecut into 3 key zones focuses your body weight onto areas that initiate, hold and release turns.
CORE FULL - POPLAR
Our baseline core for tip to tail wood-core snowboard construction. Strikes a predictable balance between durability, consistent flex and light weight.
BASE MATERIALS - EXTRUDED
Just like it says. This material is formed by extrusion. It’s softer than our other two bases, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. At the speeds many of us ride, this material is actually quicker (gets up to speed faster) than sintered when waxed correctly. You may have your own proof of this when you’re smoking by someone with a dried out “high-end” base. It also retains wax better because it’s more porous and is easy to fix with a P-Tex stick if you get scratches in it.

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.
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.
