Description: DC Lauri Pro Snowboard
The DC Lauri Pro Snowboard is Lauri Heiskari's pro model featuring a unique Absinthe Ale graphic. The Fresh deck topsheets give DC boards the poppy feel you get from a new skate deck that will drive them to the top of the freestyle world. The board is flat through the center and has +1.5mm of positive camber in the tip and tail that make it ideal for a wide range of mountain terrain. Combine this with DC's revolutionary Camber Core and you get the feel and pop of a full camber board while maintaining the forgiveness and pow float of a flat board. Get a boost this season with the DC Lauri Pro Snowboard!
- Flex: 7
- Maneuverability: 8
- Camber: 1.5
- Micro Camber: the board is flat through the center and has a +1.5mm of positive camber in the tip and tail. Combine this with the DC's revolutionary Camber Core, you get the feel and pop of a full camber board while maintaining the forgiveness and pow float of a flat board.
- Stratus Core: Poplar, Pop=6, Light feel
- Camber Core: DC's Camber Core is the secret ingredient that allows us to give our anti-Camber boards the pop of a traditional Camber board, yet remain fun and playful. This unique feature helped our boards win several awards last season. By adding a unique arch shaped profile to the wood core, the fiberglass takes on a completely new geometry, like that of a bridge. We've integrated this "arched fiberglass" shape into the anti-camber zone to give the boards more pop and added resistance when flexing the tip and tail. This also gives our anti-Camber boards the stability of a traditional camber board.
- Radius 2 Flat: After receiving rave reviews and awards Radius to Flat has earned its spot on every board in our line. The flat surfaces at the tip and tail of the board provide lift in powder to keep you floating in the deepest snow, while the radius blends in perfectly with the sidecut to create effortless transitions from edge to edge.
- 7200 Sintered Base
- Structurn Base: The structurn base structure is scientifically proven to be a faster base in all conditions. Just like the dimples of a golf ball break tension and make it fly farther, these small dimples in our base break water tension and allow your board to glide faster, turn easier and allow you to ride longer.

The DC Lauri Pro Snowboard, DC MLF Snowboard, and Lib Tech Burtner's Box Scratcher are all great all mountain decks. The Lauri Pro and the MLF have traditional camber and fairly stiff flex ratings.
If you're looking for a good amount of maneuverability and great edge hold n firm snow/ice, I'd get the Lib Tech Burtner's Box Scratcher. It has a great blend of camber and flat/mild camber called BTX and Magne-Traction edges.
As for size, you fit best within the weight range of the 154cm Burtner. Check the deck out HERE: http://www.the-house.com/9854ltbbxsb14zz-lib-tech-snowboards.html
THe DC Lauri Pro Snowboard is a great all mountain freestyle board with a stiffer more responsive flex rating that is great for stability at high speeds and HUGE jumps. After the board has been broken in it'll start to press with greater ease, but right out of the box it may be a little difficult to press.
I am looking to upgrade this year and invest in a new board but, unfortunately, I do not know where to start! I current have a Morrow Fury 155cm from 2009 and its seen its better days. Right now, the main reasons I would like to switch boards is I've noticed a few things that I would like to change. With my Fury, I seem to catch an edge that sends me ass over backwards sometimes. The board seems heavy and its difficult to swing the tail end of the board a few hours in. And its slow. What I am looking for is a board with a little more flex and pop and a board that is light but still responsive to quick/fast carving. Right now, I have preference towards Forum, DC and Arbor. I'm an East Coast guy as well (so ice and groomed powder comes with the territory). Any suggestions? Right now, the DC Lauri and MLF are mostly what I am looking at because of the sintered base but I feel the flex may be too stiff. Thanks!
Those other boards may fit my weight better, but which one do you think would be best for what I'm looking for? I really like the illustration on the Lauri pro.. thoughts about those boards, and the right one for me??
No worries, I'm glad I can help you out. The DC Lauri Pro Snowboard is much more responsive than the Ride Machete and the DC Ply. I would suggest the Lauri over the other even though it's only a 153cm, and there's a few better options I've listed below for you.
157cm or 159cm Ride DH - 9/10 Flex / Hybrid Glass (Biax & Triax) / Camber: http://www.the-house.com/9853rddh13zz-ride-snowboards.html
158cm DC MLF - 7/10 Flex / Carbon Quadrax Glass / Camber: http://www.the-house.com/9850dcmlf14zz-dc-snowboards.html
The Ride DH and the DC MLF are 2 of the greatest twin tip hard charging all mountain freestyle decks around. The edge to edge transitions are lightning fast, the amount of pop is mind blowing, and the edges grip hard. They're both twin so you can rip them through the park and ride them switch with no problems.
Yep, the DC Lauri Pro Snowboard will be great for park and trail riding. This is Lauri Heiskari's pro-model, he thrashes everything.
