CORE: Superior float requires a superior platform. The Wizard's eco-friendly laminated bamboo and poplar wood core construction is lightweight yet provides a steady and responsive performance. TOPSHEET: Nylon gloss with graphics sublimated into the ISO 8210 material. BASE: The IMS 2000 base is fast and holds any wax at temperature. Rubber dampened in the tip as well as above and below the sidewall in 2mm layers, the Wizard nicely cushions the skier upon landing in any type of snow condition. EDGES: P33 RCH48 steel in a 360 degree wrap allowing the seams to be nearly invisible. Special UHMW PE toe inserts. SIDEWALLS: The UHMW sidewalls prevent side-holing when running through the rough stuff and have a superior anti-crush rating. CONSTRUCTION: Triaxial fiberglass over a laminated poplar wood core. A layer of unidirectional 9 ounce fiberglass is also laid on top for torsional rigidity and flex. Rubber dampening.
