Built with quality days on quality mountains in mind. The Beauty is ready for the best and worst that Mt. Baker, Crested Butte or Squaw Valley can throw at you. Designed by Barrett Christy 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 Beauty est prête à affronter le meilleur et le pire de Mt Baker et Squaw Valley. Développée par Barrett Christy 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 tolle Tage in tollen Bergen gemacht. Das Beauty ist für alles gerüstet, was Mt. Baker, Crested Butte oder Squaw Valley dir bieten können. Von Barrett Christy dafür entworfen, auf den Punkt genau zu funktionieren, schwimmt die Pow Nose immer oben auf, während das Tail etwas schmaler wird, aber trotzdem noch genug Fläche zum Switch fahren hat. Die Pendleton Graphics sind eine Hommage an die nordamerikanischen Nationalparks.

Hecha para pasar días increíbles en montañas increíbles. La Beauty está preparada para afrontar lo mejor y lo peor de Mt. Baker, Crested Butte o Squaw Valley. Diseñada por Barrett Christy para proporcionarte el mejor rendimiento sobre nieve polvo, con un nose flotable y ligeramente levantado, un shape con un leve ángulo conificado y suficiente tail para darle hacia ambos lados. El diseño gráfico de Pendleton celebra los 100 años de nuestros parques nacionales.

  • Kbenz

    I’m trying to decide on buying last year’s Beauty or this year’s Beauty. Is there much difference between the two?

  • Gnu

    We made some slight changes to the core and mellowed out the Magne-Traction a bit for the 14/15 season.
    The graphic will be the biggest difference between this one and last year’s.
