Snowboard Technology

Here at Flow we are all passionate snowboarders, at all levels of ability and each of us loves different aspects of snowboarding. But we all want a snowboard that feels like an extension of ourselves, a board that gives us the confidence to ride like the wind and smile at the mountain. We know that you are looking for the same experience. So we have built a great line of boards, catering to different levels or riders, and different styles of riding. Most our boards are very all-around, and we have a few quiver fillers for those extra special days. Find out the love we put into shaping and designing our boards, for the shared love of riding.

Kush Control Technology

The ALL NEW Flow KUSH-CONTROL TECHNOLOGY consists of 3 unique urethane features strategically placed in the base, sidewall and topsheet to create the smoothest and strongest snowboards available on the hill. Urethane is flexible and highly resistant to impacts in extremely cold temperatures. Urethane is also utilized due to its superior bonding properties and can withstand the abuse that a snowboard endures. The dampening properties of urethane act like skateboard wheels and provide you the smoothest ride possible.

Flow Snowboard Kush-Control

The urethane base inserts are positioned between the woodcore and base material. These inserts allow Flow boards to adapt to any terrain, absorb impacts, reduce chatter and provide a smoother, more stable riding snowboard.

One piece Urethane sidewall, fused directly to the woodcore to reduce vibration, absorbs impacts, increases edge hold and creates a stronger smoother riding snowboard.

Flow Snowboard Kush-Control


Urethane inserts placed under the toe and heel areas reduce chatter, absorb impacts, increase edge hold and provide the smoothest riding snowboard.

Flow Snowboard Kush-Control

  • Kush-Control Premium

    Kush-Control Premium consists of specifically formulated urethane compounds utilized in the sidewall, topsheet and base. The denser 98A durometer urethane sidewall is fused directly to the woodcore to provide more pop and control while maximizing edge hold. Flow uses a thicker and softer 75A urethane for the topsheet and base inserts to add flexibility, absorb chatter, cushion impacts and increase the durability of Flow boards.

  • Kush-Control Plus

    Kush-Control Plus consists of specifically formulated urethane compounds utilized in the sidewall, topsheet and base. The 93A durometer urethane sidewall is fused directly to the woodcore to provide stability and a smooth ride. Flow uses a standard thickness 85A urethane for the topsheet and base inserts to add flexibility, absorb small to large impacts and increase the durability of Flow boards.

Board Profiles

A board profile is the bend from tip to tail. Different profiles dictate the type of performance you can expect out of each board. Flow offers a diverse range of profiles, from the easy going rocker shape to the aggressive, more traditional camber shape.

  • Pow-Cam
    Flow Snowboard Pow-Cam profile

    Three-phase S-Camber with a floating rockered nose for powder. Traditional setback camber under the feet and flat between the bindings for added grip on ice and better float in the pow. Pow-Cam delivers the ultimate powder experience and carving performance.

  • Pop-Cam
    Flow Snowboard Pop-Cam profile

    Three-phase camber construction. Features traditional camber under the feet and flat between the bindings for added grip on ice, better float in the pow, and locking onto rails, leaving the tip and tail mellow and free.

  • I-Rock
    Flow Snowboard I-Rock profile

    Hybrid reverse camber with a convex base for a natural feel on rails and stability in variable conditions. Rocker profile combined with camber starting before the binding zones, I-ROCK provides stability and camber-like pop for peak to park performance.

  • EZ-Rock
    Flow Snowboard EZ-Rock profile

    A hybrid of very subtle reverse camber profile with a convex base between the bindings, and camber starting before the binding zones provide unparalleled stability. This makes pressing easy and improves agility no matter where you place your bindings. Perfect for all-mountain agility and fun.

  • Flat Rock
    Flow Snowboard Flat-Rock profile

    Flat camber profile with a gently rockered nose and tail just outside of the inserts makes for a smooth and stable ride by reducing chatter, and increases ease of initiating and linking turns.


Our woodcores are selected for their liveliness, weight to strength ratio and overall feel. Computer aided machines allow us to profile our woodcores to an exact thickness throughout the board, giving you increased pop for better ollies and stability while riding in any snow condition.

  • Pop-Lite Core

    All-new this season is our Pop-Lite woodcore, our lightest, strongest and most responsive core to date. Formulated with a blend of extremely light and strong poplar and a microcellular poly-urethane foam. This specifically developed core, featured in the Maverick and Darwin, results in a super-light blend that delivers all the pop, dampens vibrations and maximizes your board's feel.

  • Re-Flex Core

    Our Re-Flex core is a lively and responsive woodcore, with a very optimal strength-to-weight ratio. This specifically profiled core fuses several species of poplar woods together resulting in a more stable, super-light and snappy feel.

  • Tru-Flex Core

    The Tru-Flex core has a high strength-to-weight ratio by utilizing poplar wood, uniquely profiled to give you excellent all-around response and edge-hold in any condition.

Carbon Stringers

Carbon stringers are used to create and control the longitudinal and torsional flex of our snowboards. By adding these stringers to our boards we create stiffer flex patterns you can count on while riding. Your riding preference will determine which style of carbon stringer will work best for you.

  • Double Carbon Stringers
    Flow Snowboard Carbon Stringers

    10 carbon stringers stitched directly into the fiberglass on opposite sides of the inserts makes for a more responsive riding board.

  • Single Carbon Stringer
    Flow Snowboard Carbon Stringers

    7 Carbon stringers centrally stitched directly into the fiberglass makes for a soft to mid flexing board with quick response.

Power Beams

Flow Power-Beams are integrated into our boards to add torsional response. The Power-Beams are thin layers of the finest bamboo that are milled and laminated into the woodcore. These beams help the board hold its edge and give the rider more power and control. Reducing torsional flex gives the board a smoother ride at any speed. Feel the power of Flow Power-Beams.

Composite Fiberglass

Flow has created a unique fiberglass matrix with specifically placed carbon stringers to concentrate on strength, torsional rigidity and stiffness throughout our boards. These composite constructions, combined with our sidecut technology, are designed to give a more responsive feel and consistent ride while performing any spin, technical trick or just riding the entire mountain.


    Quadrax has most fibers running tip-to-tail at a 30 degree angle, and 10 vertically stitched carbon stringers outside of the inserts in a 5*5 pattern. This glass/carbon composite matrix gives the board tons of pop with torsional freedom while distributing binding power over a larger area.

    (0˚/ 45˚/ -45˚)

    Our TriAxial composites have additional fibers running at a 45 degree angles, plus 7 vertically stitched carbon stringers centered with the inserts. This glass/carbon composite matrix gives ample pop with torsional stability.


    The special configuration of BiAxial glass design creates a smooth yet responsive feel and provides longitudinal pop and torsional freedom for easier turns and a naturally easy riding board. Some models have 7 strands of vertically stitched carbon stringers.

Base Technology

Every great snowboard needs a solid foundation. All our base materials are put through a rigorous finishing and structuring process for better wax absorption, great speed and ready to ride.

  • Graphite

    Our fastest and most durable base. This extra absorbent sintered material offers superior wax absorption and retention, and is incredibly fast due to the addition of a carbon blend to the material. Ultra durable and ultra fast.

All sidecuts, profiles and shapes are designed as a system to focus energy to the binding areas, relax the nose/tail transition area and create a more dynamic ride with maximum edge hold.

  • Tru-Twin

    Equal amounts of nose and tail and a centered sidecut allowing a rider the ability to ride in either direction.

  • Directional

    More nose than tail, setback insert pattern, sidecut and flex for more pop off the tail and better float in powder.

  • Directional-Twin

    Centered sidecut combined with setback insert pattern and core profile, allow a rider equal opportunity for centered or setback setup to ride in any direction.


From turning at high speeds to riding in the park, we understand how drastically a sidecut affects the overall performance of a snowboard. Each sidecut technology is designed to match the boards profile and attitude.


    The 3 stage sidecut features flat sections in the binding area and a different radius between the feet that is mellow for Pow-Rock or tight for Pow-Cam. Combined with a progressive arc and mellow tips PDT delivers a surfy ride with unparalleled grip.

  • 3-D

    Smooth with tons of grip, the 3-D Transitional sidecut blend is uniquely different between the feet, mellow for I-Rock and super tight for Pop-Cam boards. Mellow tips and aggressive radius in the binding areas gives unlimited grip for an overall super smooth, agile ride.

  • EZ
