Temple’s wild directional freeride friend. The Beast is designed for the aggressive rider who wants to ride the whole mountain with a focus on freeriding and absolutely killing new snow conditions. A nice long floaty nose combined with precise, stable C3 camber dominant contours combined with mild Banana rocker for float in pow and freestyle freedom. Temple built in enough tail to effortlessly handle freestyle terrain and float through the pow switch. The Beast is built for everything that makes freeriders around the world smile.

    What are the edge bevel angles on this board?

  • http://www.gnu.com/ 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!)

  • http://www.gnu.com/ 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!
