The Völkl Shock Absorber is made of a special hardwood with high density. Knocks and shocks that occur while landing are absorbed at the bindings edge so that the woodcore itself is protected from cracks.
Continually improved, the HSA is made of especially durable armor wood inlays, that are milled into the core around the binding area. This allows the H-shaped inlays to absorb impacts of hard landings, making the boards strong enough to endure the weight of a small car, without losing any pop.
The Shock Absorber consists of a single hard wood layer that is inserted where the core tapers. Together with a V-Flex inlay it offers massive pop and improves durability as well as torsional properties.
