Carbon fiber strips give a board additional liveliness, and more pop, strength and edge grip. We place carbon fiber in special configurations to modify the board’s longitudinal flex, torsional stiffness, and to improve power distribution from the bindings to the edges of the board.
Exclusive for Feels Like Flying is the optimized interaction between sidecut and nose and tail surfaces. FLF reduces nose and tail edge pressure after turn initiation, preventing the nose and tail from getting pushed into the snow. You can actually see and feel how it works.
Prepreg adds the perfect amount of glue exactly where it is needed and not a drop more. It ensures durability, long life, and consistency in flex and ride. Where other manufacturers use wet lamination to save money, Palmer maintains its commitment to quality by using prepreg in all boards. Prepreg allows us to deliver a finer product, helps maintain a safer workplace for our employees and minimizes our impact on the environment.
Vertically laminated beech/poplar or Okume woodcores for high strength, low weight, and optimal flexural properties. Tailored to each board’s exact specs. Every model has its own special woodcore – different in wood type, shape, and composition.
