Are you looking for the perfect daily driver or a short board to compliment your quiver? Do you already own a Backslash and are one of the many that have ever thought, "this board would be RAD in a lighter carbon version"? Wouldn't it be even more awesome if the carbon version was able to handle the same all mountain terrain and conditions as the original Backslash? We have always wanted to produce the Backslash Carbon model but wanted to create a more all condition carbon construction before we released it and well, we are stoked to announce that the board that we have been getting requests for since we made the first Backslash will now be available in limited quantities!!
So, how did we improve the Backslash?
Since the start of Telos we have always offered some of our models in fiberglass as well as a carbon fiber version. The lighter carbon versions have always been great in the backcountry and in powder, lighter to carry up the mountain and less weight on your feet so you can ride longer and harder. Many of us have ridden the carbon version for resorts and all snow conditions but sometimes when you add high speed riding to those conditions it amplifies the micro vibrations that the vertical aluminum alone could not filter out.
For the 23/24 season we are introducing the all-new DFD™ (Dual Frequency Dampening). The DFD™ technology now uses two different sources for dampening. The vertical aluminum acting passively, while doing the main part of the dampening work, plus now a more reactive and specially formulated D3O® foam that works at a different frequency than the aluminum.
By adding D3O® foam in the core it helps to absorb the micro vibrations that you feel on harder snow and at higher speeds on a carbon snowboard that the aluminum could not filter out. This new construction is as light as the previous construction but opens new possibilities of terrain and snow conditions the boards perform well on.

Board Specs & Sizing
ONEBALL Bio-Green Wax – All Telos Boards are shred-ready straight from the shop and are responsibly waxed from the factory with ONEBALL Jay Bio-Green Wax, made from renewable, soy beans.
ELECTRA Base – Telos high-speed, graphite infused sintered base with die-cut logos is ultra-durable and helps eliminate the use of highly volatile solvents and chemicals used in typical inks. Solid color materials help to keep your bases looking fresh and the tighter molecular structure helps eliminate the possibility of unforeseen core shots from those gnarly backcountry sharks!
PRECISION CONTROL Core – All farmed Paulownia core with X-Wood technology and bamboo insert supports makes the lightest and most durable natural core available. Vertical aluminum stringers help to dampen the naturally stiff characteristics of carbon fiber for a smooth and even flex throughout. Each core starts from raw lumber in our factory which is cut down to specifically calculated strips and laid up by hand with each piece exactly where it needs to be for Ultimate Flex, Feel and Durability.
- DUAL FREQUENCY DAMPENING (DFD™) – Secondary vibration frequency dampening system using specially formulated D30® foam strategically placed in the core to catch the micro vibrations that aluminum stringers can’t. DFD™ allows this board to perform well not only in powder but also in all-mountain terrains and conditions.
- CARBON-FLEX Construction – 100% multi-layer triaxial carbon fiber layers (no fiberglass) makes the BACKSLASH Carbon one of, if not, THE LIGHTEST freeride boards in the world. Full layers of carbon fiber laminated above and below the Precision core create an extremely light and damp board that is still durable. The carbon-FleX construction flexes naturally, more like a fiberglass board that other stiff and twitchy carbon boards.
PERMA-FLEX Resin – Telos proprietary resin that we’ve developed and used since the 1990s is still the only NO-VOC Resin used in the industry today. Many companies claim to use “Bio-resin” that may use sustainable filler materials but still also contain Volatile Organic Compounds that are harmful to our environment. Telos Perma-Flex Resin uses non-harmful specially formulated elastomers that not only locks in the camber and flex for the lifetime of the board but has the highest tested bonding strength of any other resin used in the industry today.
DIGITAL DIRECT PRINT Topsheet - Digitally printed using solvent free inks and offering a semi-transparent view to the core technologies inside.
SEAMLESS POLYURETHANE Sidewalls - Polyurethane sidewalls give you just the playfulness you’re looking for and the confidence to hold your edge on hard carves.
ALUMINUM TAIL Protection – Specially designed aluminum tail protectors give added protection and durability in the backcountry.
CERAMIC EDGE Tuned – All Telos boards come with factory tuned edges with detuned tips and tails.
