El Grande – The Widest Board in the World?

Being the creator of the widest board on the market wasn’t quite good enough for Elan, who have now surpassed themselves with their new super wide shape. For the big-footed gent, the new super-wide fit easily accomodates bigger boot sizes, featuring a significantly reduced width across the nose and tail of the board thanks to patented Omega Sidecut technology. A straight sidecut has been designed to replace the traditionally rounded shape of a board’s tip and tail. Besides reducing the width of the nose and tail, the Omega Sidecut significantly increases rider stability and control when riding, jumping and landing.

“I think the idea is brilliant – it’s simplicity in its purest form but maybe that’s exactly why nobody has done it before. Take the widest board in the world and combine it with the sickest invention snowboarding has seen for a long time. If you thought a super wide board might be tricky to handle, then think again,” says Elan International Team Rider Aleksi Vanninen.

Packed with torsion-reinforcing Carbon 90 Beam and V2 Sidewalls, the El Grande is easily controllable in all snow conditions and offers great performance.
