The 540 Blackdeck snowboard is a progression-focused board that will have you improving your skills at a lightning pace. Featuring a soft-mid flex, a true twin shape, and a reverse camber profile that makes riding forgiving and catch-free, you'll be riding regular and switch with confidence and ease. If you're stepping up from rental gear or just starting out on snow, the Blackdeck has all the tech you need to go from beginner to intermediate and beyond.
Board Type: Beginner / Groomers
Camber Type: Reverse (Rocker)
The reverse camber has predictability to its ride without ever worrying about catching an edge. Its loose surfy feel is ridden more between the feet and naturally planes above powder. Unlike Positive Camber, this board is already in the shape of a turn so it basically auto-turns itself. It is also great for exaggerated butters and presses on rails and boxes.
Flex (1 = soft, 10 = stiff): 4/10
Shape: True Twin
This board construction is mirrored from nose to tail, meaning it will ride the same in both regular and switch.
Core: Poplar Wood
Extruded bases are strong, easy to care for, and will stay consistent even if you forget to wax them every now and then.
