ACCEL CAMBER

ROCKET FISH HIGH PERFORMANCE SOFT FLEX

Contrary to expectations, the sharp and aggressive carving performance of the Rocketfish is backed up by the small-taper, waistless design. In the other hand, the Rocketfish High Performance is slightly skinnier with a touch of taper resulting in a better controllability in all circumstances.

It will turn aggressively if you push hard on it, and would cruise graciously if maneuvered gently. Its width, taper and deep swallowtail makes it the perfect pow-board answer to lightweight riders.

FUNCTION

ACCEL CAMBER

The idea of traditional camber is to apply the same amount of pressure onto the entire edge of a board to attain smoother, more stable carving and turning.

The camber arches from the center of the board all the way to 3 cm inside of the widest point of a board, both the nose and the tail. To turn, this camber has to be stepped on and the bottom pressed against the surface. This type of camber is effective at a resort, compacted slope or on a flat face. But it has lots of demerit on deep powder, fresh snow, or terrains with three-dimensional features. It is arched against the direction of the board, and the board could get hooked on the snow easily, making the turn less agile.

The GENTEMSTICK’s radical Accel camber eliminates hooking and prevents nosedives in deep powder or fresh snow, while maintaining a natural floatation. It is designed and shaped to perform its best when the rider stands neutrally on top of a board. It is made flat from the widest point of the nose side to about the front foot. The arch begins there and reaches the highest around the back foot, and it ends at the widest point of the tail side. When a rider stands on the board, the arch gets pushed and the area ahead of the front foot barely touches the snow.

This is the position that maximizes the performance of the board, and also the same position that reaches maximum velocity in ski races and other speed competitions. Accel camber has an arch from point A to point B. The board becomes flat as the back foot pressures the board. It rises slightly from the point C to the nose, which effectively reduces snow resistance. There are boards with similar camber designs released from major manufacturers these days. It is important to remember that the nose rocker design becomes very important with this kind of camber system, which has the peak of its arch placed further behind the center of a board. The GENTEMSTICK Accel camber boards are distinctly designed, especially from the point where the camber ends to the widest point of the nose. The key is to reduce resistance.

REVIEW

Haruna / 信濃エリア 妙高ベース
持っているだけで気分があがるデザイン、まさに雪の中を泳いでいるような乗り心地がお気に入り。細かな地形を拾いながら、どこまでも曲がっていく感覚が楽しくて寄り道ばかり、なかなかボトムにたどり着きません!そして、深いパウダーでも充分な浮力があります。おすすめホール位置は前足を一番前のホール、後ろ足はセンターホール。

Maiko / ニセコ
とんがって気難しそうな外見とは裏腹に、細いテールと柔らかいフレックスのおかげで、ニセコのボトムレスパウダーでは表面を魚のように自由に泳ぎ、朝一の完璧なグルーミングでは、思い描いたライン通りに切り上がることができる。グラフィックもかわいくて、リフトの上でも気分があがる。私(”女の子に”でもいいかな)にとって最高のマジックボードだ。
