Original Swallowtail™




Updated for the 2019/2020 season.

“Ever since I got involved with Winterstick I had been wanting to make changes to the original Swallowtail shape that the brand had been building for many years. While it shined in perfect untracked conditions it had some awkward handling moments on hardpack or on long traverses. Our head engineer Rob Lu listened to my thoughts and took us where we needed to go. Shifting the sidecut forward towards the center of the stance and getting more effective edge ahead of the front foot. Opening up the sidecut for more high performance in big mountain situations and a wider waist width to accommodate better carving control when it’s not bottomless.”     – Seth Wescott
