KORUA was born from a group of friends, who happened to be traveling snowboard nerds in our 30’s. On a trip to Japan in 2012 they witnessed the country's thriving snow-surf culture and their specifically “built for deep powder” boards. This spoke to their r individual riding styles and interests. So when the opportunity arose to start their own brand, it was clear that the focus would lie on making boards that were easy-to-ride in their home mountains — the Alps, and that would turn exceptionally well. At the core of every KORUA board, is a sidecut that allows you to carve like no others on hard groomers, and a shape that lets you float through powder with ease. They truly are great all-round snowboards.

A SWALLOW TAIL FROM THE FUTURE

The Dart is inspired by classic retro powder shapes, but it’s built with a modern twist. It may have a very powder-oriented aesthetic at first glance, but it’s actually a highly versatile ripper for slaying turns both on and off-piste. It’s the perfect shape for riders who are looking to focus on their turning style, while driving out of turns with speed in all types of snow conditions.

PERSONALITY

The wide frame, setback and taper offer maximum float and a relaxed riding experience in deep powder. The extra width also reduces toe and heel drag on groomers, enabling you to go low when carving. The deep swallow tail is playful when releasing out the back in soft snow, while also allowing a tighter radius at the end of your turns.

CONSTRUCTION

Biaxial fiberglass, UV laquer topsheet, poplar light wood core and a high-end perlatec base is the tried-and-tested combination of our durable materials we use to enable that perfect turn.

THE DETAILS

The Dart features our FLOAT CAMBER, which curves into a rocker shape in the nose. This profile helps you stay on top in deep powder while maintaining speed throughout the turn. The camber under-foot offers grip and stability on hard-pack and in variable conditions, while the early rise in the nose allows for an easy initiation of turns.

Optional: We recommend trying to ride this shape with more weight on the front foot.
