Compatriot Outra Vez Snowboard

Compatriot's best seller and powderhound pleaser returns for 2010. The board of choice for the tram junkies at Jackson Hole and Mammoth, the Outra Vez is responsible for putting smiles on more faces than Bettie Page. The Cowboy Core superlight full wood construction paired with the CFX91 Carbon Fiber Stringers ensure that this board will float in the deeps and hold an edge in the steeps. Lighter than other contenders in the 164cm range, The Outra Vez is pure pleasure in gauntlets like Four Pines and Tuckerman's. Outra Vez is Portuguese for "one more time." This title was chosen specifically because this board is so light and so fun, you'll want to hike Mary's or beyond Rendezvous one more time, and the tuff DuraSurf 4000 base won't be pushed around by any core-shot conquistadores...The Outra Vez truly delivers.

Compatriot The Commissioner Snowboard

We don't mess around, and neither does the Commissioner. This ultra-limited powder slayer was designed to put the kibosh on untracked powder fields. Unlike other tapered powder sticks, you can ride the Commissioner fast: Ride it any time, any place. The Knuckle Sandwich sidewall construction and seamless base make this board tough enough for preemptive October strikes, and the HellBent spade nose has a very slight powder rocker beyond the front contact points and a killer pin shape. While you may find it surprisingly light for a 169, you won't be surprised by its performance.

Compatriot Falcon GFR Snowboard

Compatriot Falcon GFR Snowboard

The Falcon GFR is the enhanced version of the Guide FR from a few years back. Slightly stiffer than the Movement yet with a less insistent sidecut, the Falcon GFR boasts a lightweight yet durable full wood Cowboy Core bonded with our Special Sauce resins to make sure you can get more than one season out of your snowboard investment. Employing our proprietary CFX91 carbon fiber backbone and Knuckle Sandwich Sintered Sidewalls, this board has a smooth flex pattern that is stiff enough for Killington park and pipe missions, yet allows the perfect amount of freedom/flex in the right places for when you want to throw a few slashers into the trees. A great all-mountain board for the discerning snowboard aficionado, this ride is equally at home at Snow Valley as it is in the Chugach.
