The intention for the XY was to blend the masculine with the feminine. The width is for deep carving, the length is ideal for deeper conditions and steeper terrain, the side-cut is meant to feel natural and gentle from turn to turn and the nose and tail are designed to maximize all of these features.
A board that can smile at the devil, glide smoothly at high speeds and gently caress every curve of the mountain.
Maximizing the design characteristic of the Spoonfish such as the acceleration camber, the long projected nose rocker and smooth low-key sidecut, the Mermaid rides soft, tender, gracefully and freely, just like a Sea-Maiden flying in the deep blue ocean.
Everything will turn into slow-mo and it will let you discover new subtle features while you cruise down your daily slope.
The Flying Carpet will take you on a magical journey through the deepest of the winter. Despite its short 146cm length, it provides ample float and the combination of the flat camber system and the pointy nose is proven with the TT series to perform smooth and loose in natural banks and gullies.
The Flying Carpet is an easy going cruising board and is the recommended model for flat camber’s entry users.
New for 19-20, a new length in the Mantaray series, succeeding the DNA of the original and designed for the lighter-weight riders. The subtle camber and softer flexibility has been adjusted perfectly to the length and is not just a simple scaled down version of the bigger models.
It’s been finely tuned to fit light-weight riders that are after a true carving experience and freedom of movement in the tree-runs. The Mantaray 142 will be a magic board taking the riding experience to the next level for the young rippers and the girls who were feeling that other women’s models were a little too much board to handle.
GENTEMSTICK BARRACUDA HIGH PERFORMANCE SNOWBOARD 2019/20
A slimmer version of the Barracuda, our most versatile Fish. The smooth curve of nose rocker and acceleration camber, the shallow swallow-tail and the right amount of taper bridges the gaps between powder, groomers and everything in between. A perfect mid-length board that suits riders who were feeling that the regular Barracuda was a little too wide for their size.
We believe it is important for boards to have a variety, not only in the length, but also in their width. The length mainly influences the board’s swing-weight, where the width and taper directly affects the edge-to-edge and the overall controllability of a board.
As its name defines, it is a shortened version of the Mantaray, 1480mm long with a 246mm waist. The long-awaited super flexible short board from Gentemstick is now revealed. Its target: To enjoy the ride in deeper sensory speed.
Interesting to see what type of riders would make this choice? Ladies to enjoy treeruns and deep powder? Or a stud guy to rip the walls along the course? Oldschoolers to take it in the bowls? Or maybe very soon, the new age riders, ripping out the full performance of this board.
GENTEMSTICK ROCKET FISH HIGH PERFORMANCE SOFTFLEX SNOWBOARD 2019/20
Contrary to expectations, the sharp and aggressive carving performance of the Rocketfish is backed up by the small-taper, waistless design. In the other hand, the Rocketfish High Performance is slightly skinnier with a touch of taper resulting in a better controllability in all circumstances.
It will turn aggressively if you push hard on it, and would cruise graciously if maneuvered gently. Its width, taper and deep swallowtail makes it the perfect pow-board answer to lightweight riders.
The outline, very distinctive and unforgettable, big square nose and halfmoon tail, max. width of 312mm, 258mm waist and 1540mm long. Also featuring a new camber system, a new bottom system and an extremely resistless rocker shape.
Feeling the surface of the snow under the plantar arch, once on a 3D terrain, it swims on the snow like a dolphin let loose in the ocean. Let the nose sink for a bit, then use the whole base surface to ollie out from the Pow. Lock the tail in while sliding the board sideways, and drop the nose into the fall line. Stretch out your ankles and grind the lip. It will move in any direction you want it to. This board focuses more to the sensory speed than the actual speed.
The TT model’s outline has been shaped in 1989, and released in 1990. Its outline has gone through minor changes in the sidecut, bottom and tail rocker, but its length and width has been kept the same since the start. This original shape is now seen as a “Modern-classic design”. Its short round tail provides great maneuverability and an excellent release. Its pointy nose pulls out a solid and sharp spray. The sidecut and the rocker-line harmonize into a beautiful outline that has been polished out by pursuing the style to surf the snow without inhibition. It is the Flagship of Gentemstick for the hardcore snowsurfers riding this model in any condition. The omnificent icon of the new era. That is the TTmodel.
