Quick overview

The Hornet is the hybrid shortboard of the Gentemstick range. It’s the rare and perfect balance between manoeuvrability, stability, float and speed. With a pointy nose and diamond tail the Hornet is very easy to handle even in more technical conditions. A 8mm setback and a taper of no less than 22.5mm makes the Hornet the premium pick for a day heli-boarding or hiking steep couloirs in the backcountry.

 

What is Gentemstick?

The Northern Empyrean and all the existence up there, the sun, the moon, and the stars. In other words, the absolute blessing of the raw nature or the natural passage that connects you to everything else. It is like a thick tree trunk that stands tall and straight. No need of questioning the existence, something that stays and will be unchanged, eternally. That is GENTEMSTICK.

PROFILE

  • Acceleration camber (set back camber) 4mm

  • Shape

The shaping is the most essential factor in board design. The beauty of snowboard design is to create an ideal three-dimensional curve resulting from a harmonizing outline, bottom-line and the actual warping of the board when riding it. GENTEMSTICK's commitment is to create a shape that allows a smooth and stable riding whether in powder or on packed snow. In order to realize this concept, we have adopted classical designs, such as swallowtails, which were already established in the '70s, and modern designs driven by our own experiences.

 

CORE

  • Wood

A full woodcore creates a natural flex and feel.

  • Soul

Having been involved in the snowboarding circle and its promotion for a long time, I could not help feeling awkwardness in the industry. It wasn’t hard for me to turn my back to the temptation and to return alone to the quiet mountain slopes where freedom reigned. When standing in a company’s meeting room or in front of the media with weird glimmer eyes, my thoughtful soul kept telling me to avoid the dangers. Whereas, on the slope, all I had to do is to be alert of the outstanding risks, trust my instinctive decisions and act upon it. I could just be and exist there, just as naturally as the birds circling above me, or as fish swimming along the river flow, and find the one real line to ride.

 

BASE

  • ISO sintered black

This board uses a ISO Sintered base for added speed.

 

TOPSHEET

  • Bamboo / sandwich

Using a bamboo for a topsheet dampens the ride and offers chatter-free performance. The natural material also eliminates some plastic and lacquer which improves board sustainability.

 

SIDEWALL

  • ABS / progressive

ABS plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. We improve the sustainability of our snowboards by using only recycled plastic.
