No line is safe.
Named after Whistler's Spearhead mountain range, the Prior Spearhead Snowboard was designed to take on the towering peaks and incredibly deep snow that the mountains of Canada's coastal ranges are famous for. Its versatile design is equally adept at surfing deep snow in the trees, charging over crud, and pointing it down exposed faces, giving you one board for all your freeride endeavors.
Its directional shape with a large rockered nose offers effortless float on bottomless storm days and provides drive and control when navigating steep chutes and stacked pillow lines. Camber maintains edge hold and response on windblown slopes and exposed big mountain lines. The medium flex is stable and powerful when arcing turns and dropping cliffs, yet still offers a surfy feel when you're slashing low-angle powder in the trees.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Purchased a custom Prior Spearhead (178cm w/ additional 1cm of waist width with XCE carbon core direct from Prior) this season and thinking about buying another through Backcountry.com now that they are on sale. The board is amazing on steep lines and deep snow. The only reason I'm looking at buying a second is purchasing a slightly smaller version for riding tighter tree lines (172cm version). The board is ridiculous in deep snow. First week riding it was up in Revelstoke with 2 days on mountain and 2 days of Heli. Between the heli days and on mountain we were destroying fresh tracks all day (it was dumping the whole time). Took a little getting used to the much longer board as I've been riding a 164 Burton Custom X for years. Once I got used to it, the Spearhead is just amazing.
