Why THE Prisma is for you
THE Prisma is an all-mountain snowboard with a dash of freeride. Perfect for everyone that wants to explore the entire mountain, including off-piste, backcountry, sidecountry, the great wide open, the white jungle (ok, we made that last one up). THE Prisma is a board for all levels.
Let’s get technical
Titanal is a technical material that stores energy. A metal alloy that provides smoothness, great dampening, and stability to our boards.2 of 8
A dose of carbon that adds stiffness, liveliness, and more powerful rebound.3 of 8
Carbon adds stiffness and more rebound, while Kevlar provides durability and dampening at high speed. Basalt, which is volcanic rock, provides strength.4 of 8
The center of a board with a mix of different (performance) zones made from FSC bamboo, beech and paulownia.5 of 8
Pow Savers are extra inserts to set your bindings back and to transform your board into a powder board.6 of 8
Biax Fiberglass is providing longitudinal stiffness with torsional forgiveness, for a stable and smooth feeling and easy turning.7 of 8
The finished product is a superstrong, lightweight, and porous base. The porousness holds wax better and longer. Carbon and graphite additives make this base super-fast gliding too.8 of 8
THE Tech highlights
Edge Lift Technology
Edge Lift Technology
Our boards are 3D pressed with a subtle lift (max. 1.5mm) of the base and edges at the corners. This raises the contact-points just off the snow. With THE Edge Lift Technology, you’re less likely to catch edges when riding. This makes it easier to make turns with more natural turn initiation and exit, you’ll have a smoother ride, more fun to learn new tricks, and it provides extra floatation in the powder.
Multi-Grip technology means extra contact points on the heel- and toe sides for extra grip in icy conditions. Think of it as snow-chains on your car tires. But Multi-grip technology is extremely subtle at just under 1mm bumps on the edges underneath your binding areas. It’s almost invisible to the naked eye and unnoticeable in softer snow, but it results in smooth rides with extra grip in harder snow.
Looking sideways: Pow Cam. THE Prisma has camber between the bindings for stability and pop, a longer rocker nose for float and easy turn initiation and shorter rocker in the tail for energetic turn release.. This profile gives THE Prisma its all mountain versatility, excelling on steep and fast groomers and adventurous powder lines.
Looking down: Directional. The nose is longer and wider than the tail, for stability on higher speeds and for an easy float in powder snow. The stance is set a little to the back, which makes THE Prisma a very energetic turning and powder machine that is fun to ride at any speed and in any condition.

Joey van Gils –
Previously I owned some twin tip, rocker boards and I was looking for a board that had much more technical aspects for improvement of my riding. Let me tell you this, I found it! The prisma is a super nice board, it stores a massive amount of energy that releases smoothly and the overal control is superb. Completely in love with this snowboard. I would recommend it to every single rider… grab ‘m while there hot!

As a snowboarding freeride guide I also want a snowboard which has a good tail. For those times you need to get back in control. The Prisma tail does that all. Nice stiffnes in the tail. On the groomed slopes it wants to be charged. Nice edge control and switches. The only thing that would be nice if the nose could be just a bit more flexy. Than the board would be easier to ride those icy trashed lines. Therefore a 4 star rating. Keep up the good work!
2 weken terug de prisma black gekocht. Afgelopen week op wintersport geweest en echt super verrast. Board al 25 jaar maar dit board doet precies wat ik wil dus wil je snelheid en stabiliteit dan is dit de plank die je zoekt.
