The Archetype is disruptive by nature. As our E-Tech IV powder board it has been designed to dominate in the steep and deep. After years of R&D in our Archetype Lab we finally settled on the perfect shape. The kicked swallow tail cuts through powder like a fork through ice cream yet has the stability to pop a natural feature and land with confidence. 30mm of taper into the tail gives epic maneuverability in all conditions and the wider nose skips over soft snow like the hull of a ship. Tested and proven in the backcountry of British Columbia, the Archetype is truly one of a kind.
