The Element Black is built for the same terrain and riding style as the Element with marked differences in material and appearance for a bolder, more affordable ride. A hand dyed Ash Power Ply topsheet covers our Single Malt core, which we've made from 100% sustainably grown poplar. Poplar is known for highly reliable return and long-lasting durability. This durability translates to a snowboard that will last longer and maintain its spring for years to come. The Element Black is available in both Rocker System and Camber System technologies. The Rocker System design provides a surfy ride with natural float and cleaner tracking.
