Whiter is lighter. Chimera topsheet graphics have been designed to incorporate as much of the color white into the aesthetic as possible. This keeps the board cooler, reduces melting, and therefore cuts down on ice build-up when you hit the shade or are breaking trail.
For those who really take snow/ice build-up seriously, an ultra-thin layer of UHMW (‘P-Tex’) is the material-of-choice for topsheets. UHMW will accept a rub-on wax or even a hotwax just like your base material, which helps shed ice and snow. UHMW topsheets are available by special order. Contact us for more information.
