The Pioneer makes its debut in the Endeavor line up this season and is already making waves. In designing the Pioneer we went back to the drawing board, choosing a shape, construction and flex that perfectly fit our riding styles and vision for a new board. As a result, the Pioneer has now become the board of choice for most of our team.
Starting at the core we have blended Poplar with Paulownia to reduce weight whilst increasing response. Combine this with our Multi-Camber profile that is cambered between the feet and early rise in the tip and tail and you get explosive power with ease of use. This allows you to push harder and ride faster with the knowledge that the Pioneer will remain predictable and stable. A slightly wider nose and tail shape provides a solid platform for holding presses and a new carbon layup acts as the perfect compliment. 2 Parallel beams run along the board but stop short of the contact points. This gives explosive power underfoot whilst maintaining a softer, more playful nose and tail that won't buck you.
New for 1819 is our redesigned Smoothride Sidewall. This builds upon our original award winning technology and helps reduce our overall impact on the environment. A more efficient manufacturing process cuts waste without sacrificing the impact and vibration absorbing properties, helping to provide the smoothest ride possible. Fibreglass layups are also enhanced through the use of tri-axial glass that includes a pre-cured layer above the core for more response and torsional rigidity without adding weight. And of course it's all finished off with the Channel mounting system for infinite stance adjustment.

Friendly and helpful staff. Great board!
I have bean searching for a while a good freestyle board that I can use for jumps and in the same time on groomed terrain. When I tried it first time enjoyed from first run.
Still have not had the chance to go out and try out my board due to COVID19... however the customer experience was perfect, and Chris even went the extra mile and arranged the shipping to Hong Kong, which is not available on the website normally.
I have been riding another board for my pow board, but have been looking for that unicorn all-mountain freestyle twin for years since I wore out my Burton Antler.
This thing is the ticket. Tons of pop, very low swing weight, edge hold like the old pure camber boards, super nimble, and damp enough to be great through rough snow.
It excels at side hits, buttering, generating air off any little feature, floats well in pow, and surprisingly carves like a beast... the list goes on.
It is definitely a little softer than advertised. I’m on the 157W, rated for up to 230lbs, and even so it feels like a 5 or 6 flex. Not noodly, but definitely not stiff. So. Much. Pop!!! And such a lively feel. I love it. Good torsional flex for quick steering.
