Built with quality days on quality mountains in mind. The Beast is ready for the best and worst that Mt. Baker or Jackson Hole can throw at you. Designed by Temple Cummins to absolutely turn up and rip when it gets good, with a floaty, mellow entry pow nose, a mild tail settling taper angle and enough tail to rail in both directions. The Pendleton graphic celebrates the 100 year anniversary of our national parks.

Conçue pour les meilleures journées sur les plus belles montagnes. La Beast est prête à affronter le meilleur et le pire de Mt Baker et Jackson Hole. Développée par Temple Cummins pour tout déchirer quand les conditions sont là, avec un nose qui flotte en poudreuse, un angle de tail légèrement plus étroit et assez long pour rider dans les deux directions. Le graphisme Pendleton célèbre les 100 ans de nos parks nationaux.

Für die schönsten Tage in bestem Terrain gebaut. Das Beast ist bereit für das Beste und Krasseste, das Mt. Baker oder Jackson Hole dir bieten können. Von Temple Cummins entworfen um auf den Punkt genau zu funktionieren, mit einer sanften Pow Nose und leichtem Taper Shape, aber trotzdem genug Tail für beide Richtungen. Und Pendleton Grafik, als Hommage an die nordamerikanischen Nationalparks.

    What are the edge bevel angles on this board?

  • Gnu

    I don’t think we detune or bevel this at all, so the base and side edges should all be 0.
    Though we do build them 100% by hand, so there’s a possibility it might be slightly different.

    Hey Gnu. I’m 174cm and 82kg with US9 boots – what size would be best for the Beast? I want it mostly for powder days. I currently ride a 155 Metal Gnuru (and nice work on the board, it’s unreal!)

  • GNU

    I’d probably recommend the 158–you could also ride the 161 without any trouble, but because of the tapered shape and setback binding inserts I don’t think you’ll have any trouble floating this puppy through the powder, even with the smaller size.
    Plus, the smaller board will be easier to maneuver and more nimble!

    I’m torn right now between the Beast 161 and the Lib Dark Knife 161w. My local shop says the DK was the best board they rode at demo days, but that was during a spring day. I ride Mt. Bachelor in Oregon so days consistent of more pow, packed pow, fast groomers. I’m coming off a Emma Peel 161w (I have 11 boots) which was a great deck, but I’m looking for something with all the new tech built in that will be playful in all the different conditions Bachelor goes through in a season. Any advise and comparisons between the two would be great! Also, am I’m good with 11 boots on the 25.8 waist? Cheers!
