Tom Sims created the snowboarder and the snowboarder created the Blade. The Blade features an amazing modern/vintage directional shape and Traditional Camber. Micro Early Rise is added in the nose for quicker response and improved float. Our new Quad Carbon V has been added to the nose and tail enhancing laid out, old school carves just like Tom used to rip. The Blade is an American Made, all mountain, throwback style board with the technology of the future.
