The Park, Rocker and OMNI. Three technologies. One factory. Handmade in the U.S.A. at the Lodge. Today Signal released their most anticipated technology and new board line— the OMNI!
After rave reviews at SIA, these boards will be available immediately in select accounts like Sierra Snowboards in the US and The Snowboard Asylum in the UK. Signal released only 150 of these preseason.
This board is all things to all mountain riders! Rocker and camber blended together create Wavelength technology, exclusive to Signal. You will never bury your nose in powder again.
The Omni has camber between your feet and rocker from your feet out to the tip and tail. The rocker keeps your nose up in powder while the camber provides edge control while you carve.
The two meet at a transition point, providing an additional contact point that engages even before the edge. And the fact that the rocker starts at your bindings means that you have less surface area on the snow and, therefore, a faster board!
The Omni is both a directional and a twin board. It’s directional in the sense that the nose is longer than the tail. And it’s twin in the sense that the tip and tail widths are identical as well as the fact that the radial sidecut meets at the center of the board.
These boards — a 152, 156, 159 and 162— are built with full-length poplar cores with Triaxial glass on both the top and bottom, Durasurf sintered base material, matte urethane 4160 tops, and carbon torsion bars.
