Even the kids know this is the best deal going.

Better than watching Barney, the After School Special makes learning a cinch with super soft, parent-friendly bindings and a saucer-like snowboard that teaches balance and board control. With the fully adjustable bindings pre-mounted in a beginner-friendly stance, simply grab the package and go. It doesn't get any easier than this.

Bend

rocker

Rising rider or seasoned pro, keep your game high and tight on the Flat Top. A flat profile between the feet means stability, better balance, and continuous edge control. The tip and tail kick up with an early rise outside the feet for the catch-free, loose feeling you’d expect from rocker.

Easy Rider on the Genie, Chopper®, Chopper STAR WARS™, Chicklet™, Riglet, and After School Special gives riders an incredibly soft and forgiving board that’s virtually impossible to catch an edge on. With a convex base that lifts the edges off the snow and a super soft flex, these boards make it easy to learn balance and board control.

Terrain

A groomer board can ride pow or park, but if you prefer one over the other, you should also consider characteristics like the board's Bend and Shape.

Personality

Doesn't matter if you've been riding one day or daily for 10 years, you either want a board that rips hard and fast, or prefer a board that's more about getting loose.

Width

Not to be overlooked, boot size not only determines binding size, but should account for a board's width. A board that's too narrow will have your toes and heels dragging. Too wide and you'll have a hard time turning.

Single-Component Baseplate

One material throughout creates consistent response and feel for all-terrain domination.

Lightweight Bomb-Proof Polycarbonate Baseplate

Buttery and playful for laid-back, relaxed cruising.

Ultra-Lightweight Single-Component Grom Hi-Back

The simplicity of a one-piece hi-back means immediate response. Through material blends we then manipulate the overall flex profile—from buttery to responsive.

FLAD™

The higher the Forward Lean angle on your hi-backs, the quicker your heel-edge turns. Crank ’em forward for icy hits in the pipe like Danny does, or back ’em off for jibbing like Ethan. For mind-blowing micro-adjustability, check out the tool-free DialFLAD™ and MicroFLAD™ systems that give you twice the options of our traditional FLAD.

For the Groms Easy to Use with Little Paws Ergo Shaped Easy Entry Ratchet Tongue Toe Wing (Youth Size Only) Updated Size and Shape

Kid-Friendly Smooth Glide™ Buckles: Easy to Use with Little Paws

Lightweight aluminum and lightweight polycarbonate levers give you season after season of buttery smooth and reliable ratcheting power. Designed and built by us, not some shady supplier.
