DC PBJ Snowboard
Taking a look into the DC PBJ Snowboard, they’ve built in their performance wood reinforced core that we see in most of their snowboards. This core structure provides the PBJ snowboard with that medium pop and buttery feel. You know that feeling, if that’s what you’re looking for in a shred sled, check out the PBJ snowboard from DC.
To achieve that buttery feel, DC puts in Anti-Camber, aka reverse camber, aka rocker, technology to work in the PBJ board. Do you like to ride powder, the Anti-Camber or rocker snowboard will keep the tip up for that float-y, buttery flow. DC’s take on reverse camber keeps their boards fun and playful. The Anti-Camber gives the pop of a traditional camber but the powder performance of a rocker snowboard.
Let me take a step back and explain different camber for snowboards. Calling the Anti-camber a reverse cambered board may not be politically correct. But to put it in English, a traditional camber is shaped more like an upside down U. The board touches the snow (contact points) where your feet are positioned and it curves up between the contact points. A reverse camber or rocker shape has more of an arching U shape throughout (better for powder). A flat board has no rocker or traditional camber. It’s flat from foot to foot with just the tip and tail curve up, of course. Now..the Anti-Camber is flat between your feet, which gives it a fast and stable performance, and curves away from the snow just outside of your stance. Not quite a flat board but not quite as arch-y as a reverse cambered board.
Adjusting the length of the flat portion of the snowboard can make the board perform in different ways and how you pick a board should depend on your riding style. Try making it out to a demo day and try a few boards to see what fits your shred style. By lengthening the flat area, the board will perform fast and stable, while shortening the flat portion not only narrows your stance but provides a more maneuverable board. As DC puts it…more Anti-Camber equals a more playful and forgiving board while less Anti-Camber gives you a more drive-y, power carve board. Based on reviews, the PBJ snowboard has less Anti-Camber and is a stable, fast board that will ride powerfully through thick powder.
