Core

ORBIT XII Core - Full-length, bamboo and poplar core with carbon stringers.

Laminates

Carbon Stringers - Better response. Added pop and stiffness to allow for more aggressive riding as well as reducing chatter for a smoother ride.

Base

Sintered 4000 Base - This exceptionally durable base absorbs deeper and retains wax longer making it the fastest natural base material available.

Details

Gloss Lacquer Topsheet - Direct-print topsheets for clarity and weight savings.

ABS Sidewalls - Proven durability and performance. For torsional stiffness, impact resistance and better edge grip.

12+2 Mounting Pattern - Extra setback for deep days.

Steel Edges - Factory-detuned, 48 Rockwell Hardness full-wrap steel edges.

VOC Free Epoxy - 100% VOC free environmentally-friendly epoxies.

Bio Universal Factory Wax - 100% non-toxic, and flurocarbon-free soy-based wax.

Early Rise Nose - Helps the board float through powder.

Didn't expect this to happen, but it's my go-to board from now on. Stable, fast, carves so well! Really happy with this purchase.

Asked by ian on 12/6/2017
I'm 5'10" and 180lbs with a size 10 foot. Which size board for the US Orbit would fit me best?
Answered by Graig A (Tactics Employee) on 12/7/2017
You fall into the area where either size will work for you and it depends on if you would like a longer and wider board for those really deep days or if you wanted to go with the shorter board for having a little more fun and freeriding with the board.

Asked by Ben on 9/17/2017
I'm really interested to see if anyone has ridden both the 151 Orbit and the 153 Nitro Quiver Squash. The specs are so similar and they seem intended for the same rider. I see the 151 Orbit is a bit wider overall. Which one would you say is stiffer overall? Which one is more versatile (i.e. carve the heck out of everything, float in the trees, slash sidehits, etc)? Which one rides switch the best (if it's noticeable)? Basically, which out would you recommend??
Answered by James D (Tactics Employee) on 9/20/2017
Both boards are going to have similar stiffness (no one here has ridden either yet, we haven't gotten lucky enough to get our hands on one yet). The orbit will definitely be more versatile though, and will handle much better switch. I've listed a link to United Shapes video on the board, so you can see some clips of guys riding it, regular and switch.
