From first bins to last stash slashes, the Morning Glory is built to thrust through powder like a stallion. Back by popular demand, it now features a re-engineered shape and out-there design concepts, meaning it slots perfectly into the Future Shapes family.
Its super tapered shape and oversized nose mean you’ll effortlessly caress deep powder fields, and there’s plenty of agility to bounce vigorously through tree runs and pillow lines. Half-fat camber and Jekyll & Hyde Geometries buddy up to keep edge hold and pop on point when conditions are firmer.
Conditions: Overcast skies with some wind opening up into full bluebird skies and temps that warmed as the day went. Fresh snow off the runs and a moderate dusting on the groomers.
Flex: With what can only be described as a past middle of the road directional freeride flex you have clear defined flex points in this board. Sure the nose is softer and that’s to be expected with the shape and the rocker in there. But right inside the front binding insert pack it has this noticeable flex point that is softer than the rest of the board. Then it goes back to its predictable flex and outside the back insert you hit another clear defined flex point but it isn’t as noticeable as the one inside the front inserts.
Stability: The flex, camber, shape, and width of this board make for a very smooth and predictable ride. This board at speed barely has any chatter in it and what chatter there is you won’t notice it. In chopped out terrain it just plows through everything as if you’re driving a muscle car over a garden hose. It has this smooth feel the whole way in any type of terrain but still retains a subtle and nuanced liveliness to it.
Ollies/Pop: The snap is there and you do have to load it up to get it to engage. While not the snappiest powder deck on the planet it is predictable which makes it easy to launch off a cat track into a pow field or hit a small pillow and just pop into the white room.
Butterability: The nose while longer and having a rocker section makes you think it would be easy to lock in a pow butter with. It’s not, this boards shape makes you really leverage your weight out over the nose and still work for it. The camber kicks in once you do this and will start to fight you. On the tail go fast and press hard because you’re basically doing a wheelie with it.
Carving: This is where this board sticks out from others in the pack. It has this smooth roll from edge to edge that makes you feel like you’re on cruise control but then you hit that defined flex point inside the front insert pack and you can really hammer into the center of this board and drive it. This changes the dynamic of power carving as you’re steering inside the front foot and pushing off that rear flex point to snap out of a carve. You can lay this thing over when you need to and it just cruises through everything in its path. Short subtle carves to mellow ones are easy, but when you hit the gas and drive hard that’s when this thing takes over and rips.
This superlight wood core is the industry standard for lighteweight, durable and versatile performance. We’ve tweaked this core so many times over the years there’s nothing left to improve.
CARBON POP BAND
A narrow band of uni-directional carbon stringers that run through the centreline of a ski or snowboard from tip-to-tail increasing pop and extending flex memory without altering torsional stiffness.
JEKYLL & HYDE GEOMETRY
Max effective edge and square centimeters for floatation in the minimum board or ski length. Unsinkable, but nimble pow shreds, sawn-off jib decks with huge pop and insane edge-hold or the ultimate all-mountain ski shape recipe.
Ultra wide, low rising tips that exist purely to create lift in powder without sucking-up speed. They add a surfy feel to skis and snowboards.
SINTERED 7 BASE
Amplid’s ultra-high density sintered base goes like shit-off-a-shovel in all snow conditions. It is extremely hard and therefore more resistant to damage.
PRE-CURED IMPACT PLATES
Tough, pre-cured composite impact plates placed beneath bindings and touring hardware significantly reduce the risk of topsheet dings and breakages.
Spin to win with effortless style. Amplid’s HEXO2-Lite replaces specific areas of weightier wood at the tips with featherlight recycled paper honeycomb, practically eliminating swing weight.
