The ATV’s been a stand-out performer of Slash for over a decade now. And it’s GiGi’s constant tinkering that’s kept this board at the cutting edge of board design. For 22/23 he’s been at it again! Two years ago, they've introduced a 3D nose when presenting the Vertical shape. Now tried and tested, they've implemented and adapted this tech into the tip and tail of the world’s best ALL MTN board, the ATV. GiGi calls it Dog Ears…
Not quite the same amount of scoop as the Vertical’s 3D nose, but just enough flick to not only improve the handling on snow with added lift and more butter ability, it also makes the ATV look more interesting as well. They've introduced a hybrid camber design with flat sections that add pop and response to this highly trusted cambered board. By utilizing a deep singular side cut, it stays as reactive and responsive as before. They've spotted a trend towards bigger feet on boards, so you’ll notice we’ve also beefed up the width a little too.
3D Lift. 3D lift pulls the tip (and tail) of the board away from the snow. Heavier scoop in the Vertical's nose for extra float and now more subtly in the ATV's tip & tail.
Buried Treasure. This is the ultimate truss of carbon, Kevlar and basalt fibers. The effect is lightness because the connecting strength of fiber allows a slim core thickness.
Tri-Ax Fiberglass. This material is the time-tested classic. It provides superior pop, consistent torsional flex, and more overall response.
Forever Woodcore. Constructed from 4 different lightwood wood species - paulownia, spruce, beech and poplar. This combination makes the board flyweight, durable, filled with pop and highly reactive.
Sintered 7500. The Sintered quality base is fast, durable and requires less waxing.
Diamond Stone Finish. A slight diamond-structured stone grind is added to the base to maximize glide and optimize durability. It eliminates the slow, suction cup feel that comes with one-dimensional base finishes.
Singular Sidecut. A predictable and powerful sidecut with a single radius that makes for consistent turns. It's ideal for intermediate and advanced riders who can carve a turn, like to ride fast, and desire strong edge hold.
Steel Edges. Edges are built with 35% more steel content than the average. They are simply stronger and more durable than the alternative.
Factory Waxed. All Slash boards are factory waxed with OneBallJay wax and ready to shred straight out of the wrapper.
Kick Stand. The Original Identity shape saves material and weight and also stands up without tipping over like other rounded boards.
