Archetype

If you love powder, bombing tight trees, and straight-lining, you will love the Archetype Series. Why?

“The split in the tail acts like a fork in ice cream. It helps you sink the tail in the soft white stuff.”

In 2011, Endeavor Snowboards built a prototyping facility in Vancouver called Archetype. This lab was created to build snowboards that would enhance the riding experience. The Archetype Series is Endeavor’s lightest and is the preferred board on a pow day.

TECH BRIEFING
ENGINEERING INSIGHTS

PRETENSIONED CARBON GLASS
POP OFF THE SNOW WITH POWER AND ENERGY
This is anything but your average snowboard glass. Pulled tight under tension, pressed with heat and infused with the perfect resin to glass ratio, this carbon reinforced laminate completely replaces the heavy plastic top sheet of the board. This shaves 1/2 pound of weight and makes the board one of the most responsive and poppy flexes ever ridden.

TAPERED SHAPE
KEEP YOUR NOSE ABOVE POW
With a slightly longer nose than the tail, directional boards are designed for all mountain riding and to float in soft snow. Adding a slight taper sinks the tail and raises the nose for effortless float in deep snow conditions, but also makes exiting turns easier on groomed runs.

C-TECH PHANTOM CORES
THE ULTRA LIGHT WOODCORE.
Grown in eastern Canada this wood is so light that it shaves 18% of the weight off a finished snowboard.
