This is a brand new 165 Ursa Major that came out of the press with a little defect. Structurally solid. A small misalignment of the core resulted in a the sidewall close to the nose being inboard of the edge. This leaves a 4 inch section of wood as the sidewall in that section, with urethane just behind it. The wood has been sealed and waterproofed and very little maintenance would be required to keep it so. Includes 1 year warranty coverage including affected area. See the Ursa Major Snowboard page for technical info and description.
