Asymmetrical (not published)
An all-mountain twin that loves the powder. This sexy hybrid blends the freestyle and carving traits of a true twin with a powder-friendly nose and tail.
New for the 2019/2020 season the Directional Twin was designed to provide the benefits of a true twin shape when riding on firm or packed snow while maintaining the float of a powder board. There is no setback or taper to the shape so when you are riding in conditions where the nose and tail are off the snow the board will ride like a twin, whether you are carving on groomers or taking park laps. But when the snow get soft the elongated nose and cutout tail will give the board some float and take the strain off you back leg. This board strives to combine the best features of our Twin and our Directional, hence: the Directional Twin.
The Directional Twin has traditional camber under foot and early rise rocker in the nose and tail. This board still has our freeride flex so it can handle high speeds with ease.
Like all TahoeLab boards this shape is available in solid or split configuration.

a directional snowboard with a longer toe edge for an easy ride in firm and soft snow
The solid and splitboard are made with two layers of tri-axial fiberglass and two layers of carbon fiber wrapped around a light and snappy bamboo core. For our lightest and highest preformance splitboard check out the Phantom construction split.
Flex rating 8/10
Splitboards come with Karakorum tip/tail and Ultraclip board clips.
Please note: We craft our boards one at a time so the graphic colors and design may slightly differ from what is shown
At TahoeLab we use full sheets of aerospace grade carbon fiber in every board. Adding carbon fiber gives our boards a livelier flex, reduces the overall weight, and prevents them from losing their strength and pop after seasons of hard riding.
Bamboo has a great strength-to-weight ratio, allowing for lighter, snappier boards and is the most renewable core material currently available. Our bamboo is responsibly harvested and FSC certified.
TahoeLab boards use DuraSurf™ sintered base material, which offers superior toughness and resistance to rock damage as well as providing excellent wax absorption and a super fast ride.
By removing the edge from the tip and tail area of our boards we have lightened the swing weight and reduced the chance of the boards getting hung up on rocks in a tight chute. Our edgeless tip and tail is also easier to repair if it gets damaged.
UHMW (P-tex) sidewalls are recognized throughout the snowboard industry for providing durable edge protection and damping out vibrations while riding.
