Venture Snowboards Odin
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Put the pedal to the metal when you're on the Venture Odin Splitboard and open her up on steep, wide-open pow fields. The brainchild of legendary ripper Johan Olofsson, the Odin was built to charge fast and rip hard carves whether it's blower pow or sun-baked chop. A shallower sidecut this season enables better edgehold and control in less-than-ideal conditions. The Straightline profile places flat underfoot to provide stability and edge hold on hardpack and steeps, with rocker at the tip and tail for float and forgiveness. A setback stance keeps your tip up in the deep stuff and gives pow turns a surfy feel, while a slightly tapered tail provides drive and control when you're charging. Precise craftsmanship and attention to detail prevents sloppiness in the seam so the board rides more like a solid snowboard, allowing you to shred technical lines with confidence. Aspen sourced from within 100 miles of Venture's Silverton factory keeps the core lightweight, and ash and poplar stringers maintain strength and snappiness. Triax glass gives it pop and responsiveness while maintaining torsional flex so you can hold a mean edge. The castor bean topsheet reduces the need for petroleum-based products to boost eco-friendliness, and the sintered base is fast and hard to resist damage from hidden rocks.
