This limited edition, jib-specific model is a brand new addition to Elan’s worldclass line of snowboards, and will be available in a choice of two lengths (154 & 156) as of fall 2009. The Prodigy-R LTD unites the best of both worlds by combining the progressive construction technologies of the twin-tip Prodigy – a longstanding favorite among our team of international freestyle riders – and Elan’s revolutionaryJib Rocker technology.
The board’s progressive V-shaped Jib Rocker profile delivers enhanced board control and buttering ability, transforming the Prodigy-R LTD into the perfect accomplice for freestylers with a taste for park
jibbing and covert rail missions. The model’s more radical reverse camber towards the nose and tail also serves to minimize the risk of catching an edge on take-offs and landings, giving you one less thing to think about as you look to lay down the heaviest combos in your bag of tricks. Beyond the board’s rocker technology, there’s also a whole host of Prodigy-approved construction science to see you right, including durable V2R sidewalls and Jib core technology.
Elan Snowboards international team rider Bruno Rivoire is already rocking the Prodigy-R LTD, and couldn’t be happier with his choice of board, saying: “Every once in a while, the evolution of snowboarding makes a big leap forwards. The arrival of the V-shaped Jib Rocker technology as featured in the Prodigy-R LTD is a case in point. It’s improved the way I ride and increased my board control more than I could have ever imagined – all you need to do is try it out once and I guarantee you’ll be hooked for life!”
And when we say limited edition, we really mean it. With only 100 examples per length available, you’ll need to be quick out of the blocks to nab yourself a Prodigy-R LTD for this coming winter.
Stay tuned to find out where you can lay your hands on the Prodigy-R LTD when it’s launched in core stores this fall.
