This is the board for ominous clouds and the oncoming storm. It's directional shape is slightly setback for rock steady stability at speed and has a large nose to plow through pow and crud. With a beefed up core along the edges and basalt stringers on top, it's meaty enough to handle any steep and technical terrain in its path. If you are looking for a directional all mountain destroyer the OMNI is going to be your best friend.
