The Endeavor Archetype snowboard is an innovative, stylish, and perfect for powder. In fact, the design is specifically aimed at power with its oversized nose shovel and its tapered back end. The most obvious feature of this specialist board is its split tail, that is specifically engineered for two reasons:
1 – It allows the two sections of the tail to twist independently and this allows increased control and turning sharpness.
2 – There is less material which means less surface area in contact with the snow. This means the tail can dig into the snow easier. As the tail digs into the snow the nose rises up, giving greater control and stability in deep power snow.
You can add a stance position that is pushed back on the board, which increases the ease of applying pressure to the tail region, which further enhances the ease of driving the tail into the snow. The Endeavor Archetype snowboard is very wide and extremely light-weight, both perfect for deep now conditions.
The design itself is very minimalist but extremely stylish. There is no screen printing, instead the design is laser etched directly into the board. Also, unlike 99% of boards out there, the seam around the perimeter of the board is made from one single piece, adding to the style as well as reducing potential damage to the snowboard.
