The Ursa Major has been the corner stone of our line-up since 2011. Several small changes over the years but it's soul has remained the same. It was designed to fill a desire for a hard charging board with a playful attitude that can handle big lines and speed and still be lots of fun in the trees. The design generates lots of float and stability. Unlike most freeride boards, the Ursa retains more surface area behind your rear foot to create a stable platform for landings, high-speed turns, and popping off of soft features without punching into the snow pack. This factor also means you can manage to ride switch in powder to some degree while riding switch perfectly on firm snow.
The Ursa is a board that gives you confidence to carry more speed on any line while still being fun and playful when you choose to dial it back. It's designed to absorb and glide over choppy conditions to maintain control and reduce fatigue. On groomers it likes to draw out long wide turns at speed but can be tightened up wen you really push into the turn for fun short snappy carves.
