The Dreamscape board is your ally on groomed slopes and off-piste. Don’t underestimate it! It is quite physical and technical. Once you’re aware of this, you can glide very fast while remaining in full control.
The Dreamscape is particularly partial to 2 types of terrain: -groomed slopes and carve turns: thanks to its turn radius, its directional shape, its rigid flex and above all its rigid torsion, it offers excellent traction, – off-piste: with its big front rocker and large setback (35 mm), it has everything you need to float on powder.
The shape of the board is directional, i.e. the board has a nose and tail. It is not symmetric, the tail of the board is slightly narrower than the nose, and the bindings as well as the board’s contact points on the snow are slightly set back. A directional shape offers better grip when cornering, better trajectory management and better recovery when exiting a turn.
All the advantages of both the standard camber (thanks to the elasticity of the board, the standard camber serves as a spring to provide grip on all types of snow, edge to edge dynamism and recoil when coming out of turns) and the rocker (under constraints, the board’s points of contact with the snow come closer together, making the board more manageable). The rocker elongates and raises the nose so that it can glide better over powder.
The flex, i.e. the stiffness of the board between the front and rear, is about 3/5, which is not quite as stiff as its torsion. This is deliberate, because you do need a little tolerance when exiting a turn. It means you can be a little late for the next turn.
The Dreamscape’s torsion, i.e. the torsional stiffness of the board between the feet, is about 4/5, which is rigid and powerful. It offers plenty of traction and support in turns, even on very hard snow. On the other hand, the Dreamscape is a physical board, you need “leg muscle” to manage it for an entire day.
The setback is when the board’s compression points with the snow are not symmetrical in relation to the center of the board, but set back towards the rear. The bindings are also set back towards the rear by the same distance. 35 mm: very strong recoil for freeride directional boards. This helps with the lift, as the weight is on the back of the board. Naturally, the front rises and the powdery snow dives under the board. It also eases the back leg.
front width 297 mm. Center 251 mm. Rear 289 mm (size 160 cm). Radius 10.0 m (160 cm). Effective edge 1,170 mm. No. of inserts: 10 + 10 (3 possible positions per binding/20 mm between each). Recommended stance: 560 mm.
Extruded base (manufacturing process that is different from sintered bases): – provides a normal glide and good durability over time, – requires regular maintenance: ideally, wax after every 5 outings and at least once a year, – either at the beginning of the season to start with a very good glide, – or at the end of the season to nourish the base in depth, leaving it on to protect it throughout the summer.
In general, for Freeride use, choose a fairly long board: about -10 to -15 cm. (for example, somebody of 5’7″, can select a board of between 164 and 159 cm). _ The smaller the easier. _ Choosing bigger offers greater stability at high speed. ATTENTION: due to the Rocker, a 160 cm board is equivalent to 157 cm, and a 166 cm board is equivalent to 163 cm. 160 cm (132-198 lb) => from 5’5″ to 5’8″ 166 cm (165-242 lb) => from 5’7″ to 6’1″
Wipe the edges at the end of the day so they don’t rust. Ideally, wax every 5 outings. Storing for the summer: keep away from sunlight, you can leave your bindings on the board.
