Go back to the roots of nature with the Shaman. This Borealis snowboard is a backcountry weapon featuring a W profile with a nose and tail rocker and a big nose for ultimate powder performance. You will also notice the Magne Traction technology which basically turns the edges into sharp knives that bite harder in the snow and deliver the best possible traction.
What can the Borealis Shaman snowboard do?
The Shaman doesn't like the crowds and takes the lifts only to reach the summit. Then, forget the piste, forget people, jump over the ropes and say hello to the pow. This board is an off-piste performer. It likes deep powder and ungroomed terrains. The specific shape of the board keeps it afloat with a natural ease and the W camber provides superior manoeuverability, no matter how technical it gets. From tight trees to wide open spaces, the Shaman is going to boost your skills and your adrenalin. It is a board that rides fast and it will happily jump off a cliff or off a natural booter if there were some on your way. This board is pure magic and we thoroughly recommend it to backcountry lovers. And if you really have to take it onto groomers, you'll have no problem making your way down to the chalet. It may not be its favourite playground but it holds its own and works just fine.
