IF YOU COMPARE ALL OUR SHAPES YOU’LL NOTICE THAT HALLDOR AND EIKI’S MODELS HAVE THE MOST 3D; COMBINING TRADITIONAL TRIPLE BASE TECHNOLOGY AND SIDEKICK. THE SENDER AND STOMPER FEATURE A NEW LOBSTER SPECIFIC 3BT THAT STARTS FURTHER OUTSIDE THE INSERT PACKS PLUS SIDEKICK RESULTING IN A MORE HYBRID FEEL, WHILE ON THE CREAM THIS AREA STARTS EVEN LATER. FINALLY, THE SHIFTER’S 3D IS CREATED USING SIDEKICK ONLY.
Triple Base Technology™ is awesome. The lifted sidebase sections hug the terrain when you're cranking turns or riding transition and help you plow through pow like a speedboat. You’re also less likely to catch an edge if you sketch out on your landing.
There’s zero base uplift under or between the bindings. This creates a stable platform underfoot.
Sidebase uplift begins outside the bindings and gradually increases towards the contact points. This continuous rise creates smooth transition zones for turning and buttering, while the raised contact points make the board less susceptible to edge catch.
The base uplift reaches its maximum level at the widest part of the board, creating an efficient planing surface that cuts through rough terrain and improves float in powder.
SideKick™ increases the sidebase uplift at the widest points of the nose and tail. This makes turn initiation even smoother, enhances float in powder and improves board handling in rough terrain. It has to be ridden to be believed!
ALL THE UNIQUE 3D SHAPES IN OUR LINE RETAIN THE BENEFITS OF TIP-TO-TAIL TRADITIONAL CAMBER, MEANING THEY FEEL ALIVE AND POPPY WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY HELPING MAINTAIN EDGE HOLD. AT THE SAME TIME, THE LIFTED CONTACT POINTS MINIMISE THE CHANCES OF EDGE CATCH. WE DO VARY THE AMOUNT OF CAMBER DEPENDING ON THE STYLE OF RIDING EACH MODEL IS DESIGNED FOR - SO A JIB/PARK BOARD WILL HAVE A MORE RELAXED PROFILE THEN OUR ALL-MOUNTAIN FREESTYLE DECKS.
THIS is our smallest amount of positive camber, applied to boards that need to press easily on street features and park obstacles
a perfect balance between pressability and responsive all-mountain performance
our most aggressive camber is geared towards high speed and sending it. ollies go bigger, edge changes go faster, ragdolls are more spectacular!
Lobster uses only the best construction materials. We stand behind our handmade snowboards and guarantee you the ultimate in manufacturing quality
We use targeted Carbon Stringers to fine tune each board’s flex pattern. By changing their direction and placement we can influence the riding characteristics. Below you can find the different layups we offer
Three horizontal carbon stringers connect the toe and heel edges across the binding area. This boosts response and gives you a feeling of precise control under your feet at high speeds without having to crank the tip-to-tail stiffness into the red zone.
A single horizontal stringer runs directly under the binding, creating a firmer connection between the toe and heelside that improves edge control on what is otherwise a soft flexing board.
Vertical carbon stringers that run from the binding areas to the tips make for a board that will feel more aggressive and stable at high speeds, with less chatter.
Vertical stringers connect both bindings, reinforcing the camber pattern between the feet to give the board extra spring . It’s a powered-up landing platform that will help you stomp the big stuff.
Carbon is deployed in four zones along the contact edge. This gives extra control and drive through turns without going crazy on the torsional flex, so you can easily manipulate the board between your bindings.
Two central carbon strips bring a little extra strength and precision to the insert areas while letting you press the nose and tail as heavily as you want.
Whether you clear that jump or tear yourself a new asshole on the deck can come down to the quality of your base. Remember: speed is your friend. Our P-tex formulas are lightning fast and super durable – so rest assured every Lobster can take a beating on the rail line.
Our standard sintered base that’s tough and fast, and faster when waxed. Expect your tracks to have flames in them, Back to the Future style.
There’s nothing basic about the Super Slick X. With the highest molecular content available for an extruded base, it’s consistently quick, durable and maintenance-free..
The core is the heart of your board. Premium quality woods combined with skilled manufacturing ensure every Lobster deck has genuine soul.
A blend of poplar wood reinforced with two central hardwood stringers to enhance pop, reinforce the camber and strengthen the insert area.
Topsheets do more than look cool. The quality of the glass used in the layup and the way in which the fibres are woven together have a big impact on a board’s flex pattern. We offer two styles.
The glass fibres are interwoven in two directions. We deploy this on more jib-friendly models when we want to keep the torsional flex nice and loose while the tip-to-tail flex stays solid.
Our three-way fiberglass weave is light, strong and super responsive. We use this on our more aggressive boards, when we want to beef up the flex pattern and reinforce the camber.
Sidewalls are a key part of a snowboard’s construction, protecting the wood core, reinforcing the edges (where the strongest forces are applied) and helping to smooth out vibrations. They also provide that finishing touch.
Urethane-infused Flex Walls use the same material as skate wheels for maximum vibration dampening. They look sick, too.
