Efficient yet simple, this freeride with square length guarantees safety. Snow contact and maneuverability are also at the rendezvous.
The new brand of Guillaume Guillou hits hard in the first year. The photographer de la Grave offers a very freeride range, which is inspired by the best trends in the field. His shapes are right, the flexes have been expertly tuned, and the central camber combo and rocker spatula works well. On the Black Swan, the limited camber in the center makes it easy to handle and easy to handle. The precise distribution of rigidity brings softness in the transitions and tolerance flat, but also a lot of confidence and strength on the big supports. The tip with the long rolled out ensures the flotation but also allows to engage in transfer of support on the front. We have frank supports that stick to the ground and above all a huge stability: this board confirms that she was born in La Grave for La Grave! Less specific than its sisters, the Black Swan caracole from the first year in the leading pack of big mountain freerides.
