Shape = All of the physical and technical performance characteristics that a TRIBE board shape offers.
All of our boards are built with top of the line materials:
Park boards are typically true twin boards, meaning the nose and tail are symmetrical and the bindings inserts are centered. They can however vary in their flex, with a softer more responsive flex pattern aimed to lock into rails, or can be built with a stiffer flex catering towards land jumps. Park snowboards tend to be shorter in length and have a soft longitudinal and torsional flex than All-Mountain boards.

Powder boards often feature a large nose and a tapered narrower tail. The binding inserts are often set back on a powder board to help the tip of the board float through the deep pow. Also to help in the deep snow, pow boards often feature an early and extended rise to the nose, where the tip rise starts farther back on the board. To complement the extended tip of the board, many pow boards also feature a shorter tail to prevent any drag in the deep snow.

All-Mountain snowboards are designed to perform in all snow conditions and terrain. They ride well on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The versatility of all-mountain snowboards are a logical choice for most snowboarders. All-Mountain snowboards are also an excellent choice for new riders.

We have a few different shapes, sizes, and cambers that we work with here at Tribe Snowboards, this section is to help you sort through them and find one for you!
We have hand-crafted a variety of shapes to cater to any form of riding. Some of the shapes included in our arsenal are:
Camber measures the height of the center compared to the nose and tail of your board.
There are four different types of sidecut when it comes to a snowboard, radial, asymmetric, progressive, and multiple. At Tribe, we stick with the traditional “Radial” sidecut. Having a uniform radius and a constant curve provides the best transfer of energy throughout the board.
