Obelix

For The Open-Minded Rider
This Obelix has been on our minds ever since we started KORUA in 2014. The shape is a true concept board for the experienced and open-minded rider – an absolute must-have for every quiver collector and powder junky. While it needs some skill to ride on hard-packed snow, it really shines when conditions are soft, fluffy, and super deep!

Personality

The positive shape outline and full-rocker profile makes for an incredibly unique riding experience in powder. In its element, the Obelix offers a completely new and fun riding sensation with solid performance. However limited on groomed slopes it remains controllable with a slight hint of sidecut, enabling you to reach the next powder field.

Biaxial fiberglass, UV laquer topsheet, poplar light wood core and a high-end perlatec base is the tried-and-tested combination of our durable materials we use to enable that perfect turn.

This chart shows the range in what each size can handle. It is never our intention to categorize riders and their preferences. Our philosophy of snowboarding is to try new shapes, lengths, widths, and to keep an open mind for alternative riding experiences; however, we do have some limits to consider so that your board will work as it was designed to.

Your weight plays a major role in how the board will flex, and your shoe size will affect toe and heel drag when turning. The below size chart is for reference only, as our recommendations may vary depending on your stance and riding ability.
