  • ITS ALL ABOUT THE RIDE.

    Dynamic Power Distribution [DPD] by Kessler. Another first from Palmer.For more than 10 years, Palmer has led the industry in the evolution of snowboard design. The company created such firstsas Titanium inlays, Honeycomb Core constructions, Klothoid sidecuts, 3D woodcores, the Power Link System, Cap Sidewalland Prepreg constructions.

    For 2007/2008, Palmer, in another collaboration with Hansjrg Kessler, takes snowboard design one step further andbrings an unprecedented shape innovation to the market that makes riding faster and more powerful, and yet safer, morepredictable and less tiring.

    From Boards to Skis.This revolutionary shape design has been incorporated not only into our snowboards, but also into our new ski line.

    Check out our new [DPD] Dynamic Power Distribution Klothoid Shape design you can actually feel how it works.

    Introducing a revolutionarynew shape design, from thecreators of a long list ofrevolutionary new technologies.

    Absolute Excellence.[DPD] Klothoid Shape Design.The Evolution.New with DPD is the optimized interaction between the sidecut and the nose and tail surfaces. DPD stands for DynamicPower Distribution to the edges. Klothoid represents the numerous radii (circles) that define the sidecut, and DPDextends these radii into the nose and tail kick. In practical terms this means more control and effortless handling, thanksto an optimized edge grip.

    DPD pushes edge-hold, stability and acceleration to a new standard of handlingand safety.

    Dynamic Traction.By modulating power to the edges,DPD always delivers the optimal edge grip, reacting instantly to both grip requirementsof the snow and steering impulses from the rider.

    What happens exactly?When initiating and leading through a turn, resistance due to snow deformation increasinglyopposes the motion of the turn. By dynamically allotting the power distributed to the edge throughout a turn, followingand reacting to the developing snow resistance, DPD maximizes edge grip and snow contact at every point of the turn.By allocating the right amount of power at the right spot and at the right time, DPD prevents the edge from skidding anddigging at the beginning and end of a turn. DPD ensures not only maximum available edge grip, it also prevents thenose or tail from getting overpowered. This reduces resistance, making turning smoother and more effortless whilemaximizing performance.

    The result is a tenacious edge hold, less skidding, and increased acceleration out of turns, not to mention toweringperformance and speed!

  • ITS ALL ABOUT THE RIDE.

    Feels like flying DPD puts you atthe controls of a ride that neverfelt easier.Handling and Control.By optimizing the edge contact with the snow, DPD immediately reduces nose edge pressure after turn initiation, so thenose doesnt get pushed into the snow. Simply put, DPD gets the nose out of the way of the turn!

    Reduced nose edge pressure throughout the turn means less friction, braking and vibration, and as a result, easier,effortless handling and more precise turning. DPD provides maximum control and stability at any moment of the turn,especially on harder and uneven snow, by preventing the nose from bouncing back and losing edge grip. And whilecruising straight ahead, DPD converts nose lift into speed by allowing the nose to float, instead of forcing it into a plowas with traditional shapes.

    The result is an unprecedented level of easy and predictable handling for a safer, more enjoyable ride with even greatercontrol when turning, braking and accelerating.

    Effortless, relaxed riding experience with no waste of body energy.

    Body Friendly.Because DPD Klothoid Shape design makes riding more comfortable and easier to control, you feel more relaxed whichallows you to conserve body energy. This energy-efficient design even reduces pressure on the knees.Your body canactually feel DPD work.

    Fact: Inside Track estimates ski-related knee injuries alone exceed $250 million in medical bills each year in the UnitedStates. Be gentle to your body with the DPD shape design.

    Two eye-catching details define DPD.Architecture.The DPD architecture is defined by two eye-catching details. The nose design is longer and less steep, and the moving contactpoints clearly differentiate it from all existing shapes on the market.

    Style.The outlines are strikingly sculptural and its surfaces are beautifully honed and modeled by Palmers designers and engineers.In fact, the design is so supple that every angle brings something new to light.

    The Art of Chase.Positive Energy Activates Constant Elevation.Palmer is very honored to have had Chases artistic collaboration in the design of this years limited edition P01 twin-tip ski andtwin-tip Flash snowboard. Check out his website: theartofchase.com.

  • DYNAMIC POWER DISTRIBUTION,ITS KIND OF A BIG DEAL.

    When youre lapping your friends on a powder day instead of hiking the halfpipeor park, the 2008 Palmer freeride line will give you the best performance on thewhole mountain. Slightly longer than your typical freestyle boards, check outthese new decks in a category that is more about how you ride than what youride.Youll find brand new DPD Klothoid shapes in our Platinum, Crown andHoneycomb.Weve added honeycomb to the Carbon Circle, and have expandedthe Classic line to include two colorways.

  • PLAT I N UM
