Since unveiling the Underbite outline 3 years ago, the Basic has racked up every magazine award available. Incredibly easy to ride for those that want to cruise, yet responsive and stable enough for the likes of Benji Ritchie to reach for the Basic as his go-to deck.
UnderBite 101 - By stepping the outline in under the bindings (rather than out), UnderBite disrupts the surface area that has contact with the snow while the board is on edge. Without any extra rider effort, this disruption effectively increases edge pressure on the areas where you need it most, helping to initiate and hold your turn. The effect is stable edge control and a very confident, enhanced arc in your turn with no drag.

UnderBite edges re-distribute a rider’s weight in such a way that it enhances turning ease and edge hold. Creating divots inward at the binding area reduces and disrupts the surface area of the edge that has contact with the snow while the board is turning. This increases the edge pressure by distributing your weight/energy in the areas where you need it - from the binding out, and through the center of the board where the carving arc is taking place. This segmentation of the sidecut into 3 key zones focuses your body weight onto areas that initiate, hold and release turns.
