The Public Dispute is a direction twin shape snowboard with all the bells and whistles that can be packed into this all terrain slayer. It’s Ben Bilodeau’s Pro Model and features a camber profile between the feet with rocker at the tip and tail. A powerful ride with tons of pop that will still float in the deep stuff. Thanks to Aramid Strips and Carbon Stringers this looser camber profile has what is needed to be poppy, strong, and hard charging. If you’re wondering, why the higher price tag? You’re getting a lighter and stronger Poplar Light core featuring strips of paulownia hard wood. Armid Strips for durability and a stable edge because Ben needs it all.
- Poplar Light Core – Poplar Light is a premium version of our tried and true Poplar core and uses 100% FCS certified wood. We’ve strategically placed super lightweight paulownia wood throughout the core to reduce weight but maintain a snappy feel. Strips of hardwood are placed underneath the bindings to reduce board breaks at the binding line and increase insert retention. The Poplar Light Core is only used on our highest-end boards.
- Carbon Stringer – A 20mm wide carbon fiber stringer running tip to tail to increase overall pop and response without increasing torsional flex to keep the board feeling lively and nimble underfoot. Carbon stringer is the most effective way to add pop without increasing weight
- Aramid Stringers – Aramid stringers are strategically placed in a V pattern in the tip and tail for increased durability, dampening and a dose of added pop! Aramid fibers are used to make bulletproof vests so you know every board made with Aramid stringers will be more durable and hold its pop longer, season after season.
- Biax Glass – All PUBLIC Snowboards are made using Biax fiberglass. Biax fiberglass creates a consistent and smooth flexing snowboard tip to tail while allowing the board to stay nimble and predictable.
- Urethane Sidewalls – Urethane sidewalls are used in all Public boards for their superior dampening properties compared to the industry standard ABS and P-tex sidewalls. Urethane sidewalls are more durable against impact on rocks or rails to prevent your board from delaminating when you get caught slippin’ in the park or backcountry.
- Sintered Base – Rather than melting polyethylene pellets together (extrusion), sintered bases are manufactured by crushing the pellets together under high pressure. This makes a sintered base more porous for maximum wax absorption, and more abrasion-resistant. In other words it makes the board faster and more durable!
