The Pow­der Divi­sion MT is a unique rig. Upon first glance its low-en­try nose and tail make it ap­par­ent where its pri­or­i­ties lie. This board is made for pow. With a mas­sive nose hall­marked by lifted con­tact points—Rome calls this 3D Cam­ber—and a short moon­tail, the plane is the name of the MT’s game. A directional pro­file puts cam­ber in the rear that blends to sub­tle rocker in the nose. Paired with ta­per in the teens and a waist in the mid 26-cen­time­ter range, float is no is­sue for the Pow­der Divi­sion, even in a length shorter than you may typ­i­cally ride. This un­com­mon buoy­ancy in a small pack­age makes it a choice ride in the trees, on small pock­ets of tranny, and any­where max­i­mum ma­neu­ver­abil­ity is de­sired. Its pro­file han­dles steeps with con­fi­dence but glides through flat sec­tions with ease. For a board with an aes­thetic that stands out, it is ver­sa­tile in a freeride sense. With a sin­gle car­bon rod in­layed, the board is lively but re­tains tor­sional flex, and an in­sert pat­tern that can be slammed to the back al­lows this deck to be as directional as it gets.
