Ladies, with the Gem you can engage the auto pilot and enjoy the scenery. The board will guide you through a long tour aroung the entire mountain and will sing joy for you. The Gem is a piece of jewellery that rides anywhere with style and ease.  

What can the APO Gem do? 

'If it wasn't for the lifts that were closing, we'd still be riding'. This is more or less what our testers said about this board. It is a love at first ride, it is the kind of board with which you feel comfortable from the first run on. It features a directional shape and a W profile offering cambered sections under the feet, a reverse midsection and two rockers in the tips. This gives the board a versatile personality with tons of floatiness on pow, excellent edge traction on the hardpack, and high manoeuverability on any terrain. The board feels stable and responsive and allowsto get the speed increased if your mood tells you to. The rockered profile helps for linking catchfree and flawless turns on groomers to quickly make it to the next level. On powder, the board works like a surf and moves through the deep with elegance. The Gem is simple but effective and that's all we want.  

Who is the APO Gem designed for? 

The Gem is the ultimate board for all women beginners looking for a progressive and user-friendly partner. It's also a good match for intermediate riders who'd like to progress their all-mountain game with something more versatile than their very first board. The Gem has all of your needs covered and it improves style in the same time.

To come up with a price that low, Drake engineers used common materials rather than alloys coming from NASA. The Queen Black got everything that made it a beautiful binding. Its Delta base plate is sober and padded, its straps are ergonomic to avoid painful pressure points and its highback provides the needed support for backside turns and softness to enjoy a maximal forgiveness

This binding might not win the next X-Games but will allow every ladies to get into snowboarding and master basic skills in a record time. It provides enough range of motion around the ankle to improve technically without falling all the time and have fun from the first day. The Queen Black delivers a good liveliness to the most experimented snowboarders who will love taking more speed and do stylish turns. This model goes through any snow conditions and will allow you to quickly evolve on groomed run, in fresh powder and in the snowpark. 

Who is the Drake Queen Black binding designed for? 

We advise this binding to beginner and intermediate snowboarders who want to start snowboarding with cheap and nimble bindings.
