You'll be surprised at how smooth the Gentemstick Flying Carpet is is when turning. A cruising board that offers easy control in all situations. If you are choosing flat camber for the first time, this is the model you should choose first.

A classic bottom design, but a design that disappeared in the late 1980s when it incorporated ski technology. At GENTEMSTICK, we have positioned this "flat camber" as a classic original bottom design for snowboards, and have continued to use it as a symbol of snowboard design since the first MOSS TTmodel era, and have continued to hone its performance to the point of perfection.
With conventional camber, when no weight is applied in powder, resistance is applied to the nose, causing the nose to sink. In order to suppress the nose dive, I was forced to put more weight on my hind legs, and the only option I had was to turn using the tail alone. The same thing can happen with 3D natural terrain. For example, if you are making an unloaded turn at the top of a wall, the board will curve in the opposite direction to the terrain, and the front rail or edge will be in a different direction from the intended line than the front foot. Because of this, he is forced to put weight on his back. In order to avoid it, you will have to weight your back or turn with an edge, and you will lose the freedom of your line.
This is nonsense when designing a snowboard for riding on 3D terrain. However, these systems were born from ski know-how, and this flat camber is a system that incorporates this know-how and allows you to move more freely on three-dimensional terrain. The feeling of weightlessness in turns where no weight is applied and the lack of resistance in the latter half of deep turns are characteristics of flat camber.
