The Element Black is built for the same terrain and riding style as the Element with marked differences in material and appearance for a bolder, more affordable ride. A hand dyed Ash Power Ply topsheet covers our Single Malt core, which we've made from 100% sustainably grown poplar. Poplar is known for highly reliable return and long-lasting durability. This durability translates to a snowboard that will last longer and maintain its spring for years to come. The Rocker System design provides a surfy ride with natural float and cleaner tracking.
