“B-Grade” snowboards are factory seconds, or blemished boards. They have a cosmetic blemish such as discolorations, a dimple in the topsheet, miss-drills, or an edge gap. More often than not, the blemish is undetectable to the untrained eye, but they do have stickers calling out the issue. The blemishes are purely cosmetic and do not compromise the structural integrity of the product. All b-grade boards are still covered under the one year manufacturer warranty.
“Sample” product are salesman samples. They may come in different packaging, be of a different color or material from production styles, or be discontinued items. All sample product is of sales quality and has no performance issues.
