Are you looking for the perfect touring trailblazer or a short board to compliment your quiver? You’re probably already aware of the fact that volume shifted boards allow you to ride a shorter board than you would normally ride. But did you know that if you combine this with the right shape, construction and expert engineering this can make a board that absolutely rips on anything you put in front of it? The Telos Back/Slash is a backcountry masterpiece that was designed to surf pow and easily get you to the best stashes on the mountain to do so! This in itself would be a show stealer, but in fact, it can also handle tight trees with unmatched responsiveness, side hits with tons of pop, carves trenches in groomers with ease, plus floats effortlessly and tirelessly in the deepest of white rooms all day long.

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.
