For YES., The Basic is what you might call our Jetta . It’s been with us since the start but has come so far in that time with no less than 3 design changes in 5 short years. Last year we unveiled the UnderBite outline and a perfectly matched flex pattern
to solidify the Basic as the, “get on it and rip anything” kind of board.

UnderBite 101 – By stepping the outline in under the bindings (rather than out), it disrupts the surface area that has contact with the snow while the board is on edge. Without any extra rider effort, this disruption effectively increases edge pressure on the areas where you need it most, helping to initiate and hold your turn. The effect is stable edge control and a very confident, enhanced arc in your turn with no drag.

TWS GoodWood winning tech expands to the Basic this year! UnderBite edges re-distribute a riders weight in such a way that it enhances turning ease and edge hold. Creating divots inward at the binding area reduces and disrupts the surface area of the edge that has contact with the snow while the board is turning. This increases the edge pressure by distributing your weight/energy in the areas where you need it - from the binding out, and through the center of the board where the carving arc is taking place. This segmentation of the sidecut into 3 key zones focuses your body weight and onto areas that initiate, hold and release turns.
