Named for its unique sidecut, the Variable is a forgiving and intelligent board¿a true freerider. “The radial tri-sidecut allows for easier turn initiation, a neutral middle carve, and an aggressive finish out of the turn,” says Product Manager Paolo Dabbeni.

Design jargon aside, testers raved about the Variable. “So easy to turn, whip, push, and recover,” wrote Kevin. “Light underfoot and just a breeze to ride.”

“One of my tops!” noted Kurt, who also gave it high marks for versatility.

“Great for riders who are looking for an all-around board that’s easy and flexible for all-over-the-mountain riding,” remarked Robyn. A solid pick for riders who want one board to ride every day.
