At Völkl we make sure the younger generation get the best of the best beneath their feet. The Squad Jr’s Freestyle Hybrid Shape with medium flex combines all the advantages of rocker and camber in one board. A light camber under the bindings gives more precise board control, while the nose and tail rocker makes for a more forgiving ride and generates more float in powder than a rubber duck in a bubble bath. Blunt nose geometry extends the board’s effective edge, giving noticeably more of that edge grip that is needed for high speed shredding while also catering to more progressive park riding. The Shock Absorber makes landings softer and safer and the board bombproof, reducing the impact of big airs on your body. Grip-lacquered areas work like built in stomp pads for one-foot tricks and drag lifts. A 5x2 insert system allows for stance adjustment to the centimetre and both wide versions have plenty of room even for the biggest of boots. No compromises - today’s rookies are tomorrow’s rippers!
With light camber between the bindings, this shape is true and precise to ride, while the rocker in the nose and tail still make it more playful and floaty in powder than classic boards. Of course boards with this shape aren’t as forgiving as full rockers, or as poppy and smooth as camber boards, but feature a good mix of the advantages of both construction ways. The result is a board that feels shorter and more playful, with the stability and edge hold of a longer one.
