Option manufactures a range of snowboards from the easy-to-use for beginners to boards fit for professionals. For example, the GT Option snowboard is a classic entry level all mountain performance board, designed for the rider who wants to learn to ride any terrain in all conditions with little resistance.
The GT helps riders learn to link turns easily with its mellow sidecut and soft flex pattern. GT is so popular, that Option added a female-specific version, the GT Girl. The Reason board is Option's ultimate high performance freestyle board for the experience freestyle rider who's constantly pushing their freestyle skills to the next level.
The Reason's sintered 4000 Indium/Gallium/Graphite base allows riders to reach maximum velocity when approaching jumps; the carbon triax ultra glass combined with the F. Light core makes this the lightest, strongest, most responsive, board in the Option line. The “Sig” (Signature) board is the staple of the Option line.
This freeride board is the choice for the rider looking for a reliable, durable, performance-enhancing board. The “Sig” is geared for the whole mountain.
