Do you mean 27 cm width? Just wondering... Um...I'm not really sure what anyone would have in that size so I'll check it out and get back to you.

Try there...I think you would have a much better selection if you tried the 164-167 range... Hope this helps!

Check out the LibTech SkunkApe series...The come in some big sizes and are wide for your feet. Definitely a strong do it all mountain board that will float well in the Pow. You can also check out the Rome Flag comes in a 168 at the largest but should also suffice for every day riding and then float the pow well
