All-Mountain Freeride Snowboard Bullwhip 700 Dreamscape
Traction, buoyancy and powerful hold.
All-Mountain Freeride Snowboard Bullwhip 700 Dreamscape designed for expert snowboarders in search of a powerful and dynamic board for on-piste use and offering superior buoyancy on powder.
Standard camber and rigid torsion for optimum traction at full speed. Long tip, nose, rocker and 35 mm setback for floating on powder. Non wide for greater edge to edge dynamism.
50% piste, 50% off-piste, 0% park.
Easy to handle
Rigid torsion: no compromise, maximum traction suited to large turns.
Long rocker, 35 mm setback: very high buoyancy on powder.
Standard camber, rigid torsion: excellent traction at full speed.
160 cm: 1.69 to 1.77 m \n166 cm: 1.75 to 1.85 m
Rigid flex wooden core non-wide:very sharp & incisive passing from edge to edge.
Powerful and rigid torsion, low tolerance for edge mistakes.
HDPE sintered base for a very high-quality glide.
A word from the product manager
The Dreamscape board is your ally on groomed slopes and off-piste. Don't underestimate it! It is quite physical and technical. Once you're aware of this, you can glide very fast while remaining in full control.
The Dreamscape is particularly partial to 2 types of terrain:
-groomed slopes and carve turns: thanks to its turn radius, its directional shape, its rigid flex and above all its rigid torsion, it offers excellent traction,
- off-piste: with its big front rocker and large setback (35 mm), it has everything you need to float on powder.
The shape of the board is directional, i.e. the board has a nose and tail. It is not symmetric, the tail of the board is slightly narrower than the nose, and the bindings as well as the board's contact points on the snow are slightly set back.
A directional shape offers better grip when cornering, better trajectory management and better recovery when exiting a turn.
Standard camber + rocker
All the advantages of both the standard camber (thanks to the elasticity of the board, the standard camber serves as a spring to provide grip on all types of snow, edge to edge dynamism and recoil when coming out of turns) and the rocker (under constraints, the board's points of contact with the snow come closer together, making the board more manageable).
The rocker elongates and raises the nose so that it can glide better over powder.
Medium, versatile flex
The flex, i.e. the stiffness of the board between the front and rear, is about 3/5, which is not quite as stiff as its torsion. This is deliberate, because you do need a little tolerance when exiting a turn. It means you can be a little late for the next turn.
Rigid and powerful torsion
The Dreamscape's torsion, i.e. the torsional stiffness of the board between the feet, is about 4/5, which is rigid and powerful. It offers plenty of traction and support in turns, even on very hard snow. On the other hand, the Dreamscape is a physical board, you need "leg muscle" to manage it for an entire day.
35 mm setback
The setback is when the board's compression points with the snow are not symmetrical in relation to the center of the board, but set back towards the rear. The bindings are also set back towards the rear by the same distance.
35 mm: very strong recoil for freeride directional boards. This helps with the lift, as the weight is on the back of the board. Naturally, the front rises and the powdery snow dives under the board. It also eases the back leg.
front width 297 mm. Center 251 mm. Rear 289 mm (size 160 cm).
Radius 10.0 m (160 cm).
Effective edge 1,170 mm.
No. of inserts: 10 + 10 (3 possible positions per binding/20 mm between each).
Recommended stance: 560 mm.
Sintered base and optimum-quality glide
Extruded base (manufacturing process that is different from sintered bases):
- provides a normal glide and good durability over time,
- requires regular maintenance: ideally, wax after every 5 outings and at least once a year,
- either at the beginning of the season to start with a very good glide,
- or at the end of the season to nourish the base in depth, leaving it on to protect it throughout the summer.
What's the right size Dreamscape for me?
In general, for Freeride use, choose a fairly long board: about -10 to -15 cm. (for example, somebody of 5'7", can select a board of between 164 and 159 cm).
_ The smaller the easier.
_ Choosing bigger offers greater stability at high speed.
ATTENTION: due to the Rocker, a 160 cm board is equivalent to 157 cm, and a 166 cm board is equivalent to 163 cm.
160 cm (132-198 lb) => from 5'5" to 5'8"
166 cm (165-242 lb) => from 5'7" to 6'1"
Illusion 700 recommended
Standard + Rocker
Deck : 40.0% Epoxy, Deck : 30.0% Fiberglass, Deck : 20.0% Wood, Deck : 10.0% Polyethylene Co-Vinyl Acetate
Wipe the edges at the end of the day so they don't rust. Ideally, wax every 5 outings.\nStoring for the summer: keep away from sunlight, you can leave your bindings on the board.
