BACK TO THE FUTURE BY D E N I S PI CCO LO

Born to feel the sensations of surfing, it soon began to pick up speed and carve increasingly sharp turns on the groomers of those resorts that, until a few years before, had denigrated it. It immediately learned to fly even higher, even with more style and even accepted to the Olympics. The personality of skateboarding made it fall in love, inspiring it to the point of betraying the mountain for the iron and the cement of the cities.

in winter. They made us believe that this is our comfort zone, but it is not.

Snowboarding is looking for a new, more mature, more evolved identity, in all the quivers there are always more carving, split and freeride boards. There is an explanation for all this, we are getting back to the past, to the origins.

For us snowboarders, nature is represented by the mountain, our main element. The board is how we connect to it, the tool we can express our creativity, our personality with. Out there, this winter, it will be only you, the mountain and her, your board. Breathe. Drop. Meet the nature, meet yourself.

Our lives, both for the youngsters and for the adults, are frantic, stressful, fast. Our days for most of the time are lived inside an artificially lit room, air-conditioned in summer and heated

We are human beings, and as such we need to make contact with the place where we come from. We need nature. We unconsciously seek it more and more, we need to feel the cold of winter and the heat of summer, to immerse ourselves in the snow and dive into the sea, we need not to have our ass all day on a couch.

We are going back to the past, yet we were already in the future.

RIDE SICKY SEQUENCE SINGLE 190X250.indd 1

9/16/19 6:18 PM


LEGEND TERRAIN ALL MOUNTAIN

Nose and tail can have different sizes, as the setback means it is shifted towards the tail by a few centimeters and the sidecut may not be progressive. Perfect on the groomers and for freeride.

FREESTYLE

Twin tip boards are characterized by the same nose and tail. A twin tip board is perfect for freestyle in all conditions.

PARK

Indicates the type of board profile that can be positive, negative, flat camber or the various mixes that the most important brands propose. We have created an editorial to help you understand which camber is best suited to your riding style.

You just can’t sit still, right? Are you ready to take on and jib any feature you have around you? The park is your home and a freestyle board is the one for you.

Are you a fucking park rider and don’t even strap out to take a piss? The boards with this logo are made for you! Real lethal weapons for any features you want to deal with.

FREERIDE

Pure love for the true essence of the mountain. Nothing else. If you feel this, you can call yourself a freerider. When you see some woods or a pristine powder downhill you are always there to leave your first trace.

SPLIT

If climbing for you is at least as important as riding down and you want to gain every single turn with your legs, split boards are what they do for you. Experience the mountain 100% in all its essence.

PERFORMANCE FLEX

Usually a soft and not very reactive board is perfect for jibbing, a medium soft and reactive one is indicated for a park use and a rigid one is for freeride. Choose the one that best suits your style, even through this important aspect! Our flex are rated from 1 to 5.

POP

By Pop we mean the playfulness of a board, its reaction to be bent. If a board has a lot of Pop with a minimum effort you will have very powerful ollies!

HANDLING

This indicates the maneuverability - the higher it is the more manageable the board is to control and therefore more manageable.

DESIGN RATE

Obviously this parameter is subjective and indicates how pleasant the graphics of a board are or not, regardless of the level of the artwork.

SHAPE DIRECTIONAL

The directional boards are characterized by the more pronounced nose shape larger than the tail. Generally used for freeride purposes, ie powder and backcountry.

10

TWIN DIRECTIONAL

For true 360° mountain lovers, for those who do not want to miss the best of every situation. From fresh snow to some tricks in the park, you can enjoy good performance on any terrain.

TWIN TIP

CAMBER

FEATURES SPEED LACING

The double-rod system drastically reduces the possibility that the lacing becomes loose and allows the closure of the upper and inner liner to be adjusted independently.

TRADITIONAL

Type of traditional boot lacing. The boot is characterized by a closure composed of the classic lace-up system. Functional, practical and comfortable!

BOA

Patented lacing system that uses a special knob generally connected to hyper resistant laces that make the fit firm and comfortable even after several hours of riding.

FABRIC

Indicates the type of fabric used to make a specific outerwear garment. Polyester, Gore-Tex or Poly - to you the final choice!

WATERPROOF/BREATHABLE

Two really fundamental features that must not go unnoticed nor unspoken. The higher the value, the more you will be warm and dry. Essential aspect for your riding!

WOMAN

If you find this logo it does not mean that this product is also suitable for women, but instead it is an article designed and created specifically for the them.

ALSO FOR WOMAN

Some men’s products are also available in women’s versions, the basic technical characteristics are similar but often the design changes.

YOUTH

This logo means it is a specific product for kids or younger riders, surely not for adults. Not only sizes do change, but also technical characteristics.

SEQUENCE TEST WEEK BY D E N I S PI CCO LO

When we meet up the night before printing to correct all the drafts of the Sequence Snowboard Guide, we wonder if that is the moment when our job ends or is only about to begin. Creating a Snowboard Guide is a neverending work of research and comparison with brands, testers and an incessant comparison with the market. Everything always starts with the first seasonal openings, from Hintertux where the opening of the Hot Zone is an unmissable event, then we continue with Kaunertal, Stubai, going on a tour up at our Stelvio. Why do we go there? During these first events we have the preliminary feedback of the real judges of the market: the consumers. We like to listen and understand the direction of those who constantly practice our sport and what they think of the new products in order to immediately realize if the tests we did a few months before have worked or we need to improve anything. The winter begins and with it the first business to businnes tests with which we work with great satisfaction as Shop 1st Try in Austria, Rock On Snowboard Pro in France and Back to the Roots in Italy. During these tests all the buyers of the best European shops test the boards of the following year for a few days. As for a farmer who reaps the first fruits, for us this is the time to collect data, dozens or hundreds of interviews and feedback on the boards of the new collections end up on our Macs. 16

A few days later we fly to Ispo, where we talk with the designers of the collections to discuss the latest news of their brands. We examine and try to get into the brain of those who designed, studied and produced that specific product. All this could probably be enough, but more than 10 years of experience with our Buyer’s Guide has taught us that we need a further test, one of our own, where we invite the best buyers of the shops that distribute Sequence magazine, coaches, ex pro riders and some amateurs, to have the most complete evaluations possible. This year too we organised the Sequence Boards Test at Zermatt to be another tool for consumers and professionals who can learn from the feedback obtained from the judgments of a pool of highly professional testers. The group was created in order to obtain a final judgment that is as objective, professional and reliable. The testers whom have been carefully selected can boast an important and diversified background in the various aspects of snowboarding: former athletes, coaches, guides, buyers and industry insiders. In order for the tests to succeed we needed two main elements: a resort with a park equipped with structures of all sizes and groomers on point to evaluate the management skills, plus a group of riders ranging from freestylers to multipurpose athletes. Zermatt, with its fantastic snowpark, its incredible summer snow and the wonderful backdrop of the Matterhorn in the background, welcomed our wellstocked crew.

THE SEQUENCE METHOD BY D E N I S PI CCO LO

WHAT THE HELL ARE THE SEQUENCE TESTS? Here at the Sequence Headquarters, adding up all the hot heads that collaborate to the magazine, there are countless years of snowboarding and thousands of kilometers of ridden slopes and off the beaten tracks. We all know very well how important it is to have the right tools and how fundamental it is, for us and those who choose their board through our guide, have simple but complete evaluations. 12 years of testing have let us develop an effective method for conceptualizing and implementing precise, detailed and reliable tests. Although it may seem a simple task, a good job requires experience, in-depth knowledge of the product and its history, an organization and a team of qualified and motivated people to test products with a critical eye over and over again, ready to investigate plus and cons of each of them. Yes, it is true, we would like to say that it is hard and tiring work, but we love it so much that season after season we can’t wait to start it all over again! HOW DO WE CHOOSE THE PRODUCTS? Every year we are invited to several sales meetings of the most important European snowboard companies, where the new products are presented to importers and retailers. There’s usually no time to arrive at the editorial office to read the catalogs, as it is already time to leave for the circus of the most important events such as ISPO, Rock On, 1St Try, Slide UK and Back to the Roots with which we work closely to

have an idea about the direction of the market and what is worth at our tests to pay attention to. Only at this point we request the models we have chosen to several companies, indicating a range of sizes that can be adapted to our pool of testers. We always ask to send us the boards in the same conditions as they come to the stores to evaluate all aspects, including packaging and finishing.

WHAT IS THE FIRST STEP?

The most exciting moment arrives. We begin to receive all the selected boards in stock. Our eyes are like those of a child when he gets up on Christmas day and has to unpack his presents. All the boards are then organised and classified, and the grid is formed with the parameters that will build, together with the general impression, the final report. The boards are all checked and the measurements declared by the company compared with appropriate equipment. Then the test sequence of the boards is prepared for each tester: for each of the tests, each tester will always mount the same binding, so as to get a result based on common basic parameters. The boards are pre-mounted for the first round of tests in the warehouse with the parameters of the first tester that will test them. Important note: the boards are not waxed or modified in any way because our intention is to give feedback on the exact product the 19


12 years of testing have let us develop an effective method for conceptualizing and implementing precise, detailed and reliable tests. Although it may seem a simple task, a good job requires experience, in-depth knowledge of the product and its history, an organization and a team of qualified and motivated people to test products with a critical eye over and over again, ready to investigate plus and cons of each of them.

company sends to the stores and which will consequently end up in the hands of the final consumer.

HOW DO WE DO THE TESTS? The group of testers consists of about 20 buyers from as many European shops, some coaches, us from the Sequence staff, a photographer and a filmer. We set off for the designated location, and for the second consecutive year we chose Zermatt. The test obviously takes place over several days which are organized in this way: wake up at dawn so as to be in front of the lifts in time for the first chair. We build up the booths and we prepare the boards, set up a computer for data entry at the end of the test and a recorder to collect global impressions. The Sequence staff at the booth, with the test sequence, prepares the boards for the next round and waits for each tester to collect their feedback. This operation is repeated until the lifts are closed for all the test days. The last day, at the end of the test, there is a meeting where the data is double checked and each tester is interviewed to confirm and / or implement their own judgments on the individual products. WHY ZERMATT?

What better place to take a summer test than in the “pearl of the Swiss Alps”? The enchanting Swiss town of the Canton of Valais can 20

be reached only by train or by electric taxis: petrol and diesel cars can not circulate in town. The Matterhorn dominates the view with its unmistakable shape and the majesty of its almost 4500 meters of altitude. The ski lifts is on the Theodul glacier, at the foot of the Matterhorn peak. The snowpark is spread over a vast area on the Plateu Rosà and has features for every level of riding, with two common denominators: creativity and fun. The setup consists of 15 rails, 7 boxes, 2 jumps in the easy line, 5 in the medium line and 3 in the pro line, with daily maintenance, but every week is implemented with new features and changes to the current ones. The local scene is compact and vital: thanks to the Shred Café, the bar and chill house at the end of the park that prepares coffee, snacks and offers sun beds to relax between runs, riders from all over the world find themselves chatting and confront each other in an atmosphere of total relaxation. Given the high altitude, the snow is always perfect and even in full summer you can enjoy a hard-compact snow and super well maintened slopes. The lifts are open 365 days a year and so there is always time to carve two turns on the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, which can be reached from Switzerland via Zermatt by climbing up to the Klein Matterhorn or from Italy with the gondolas that depart from Cervinia. Once at the top, in addition to the slopes and the snowpark, you can

enjoy the breathtaking view from the highest cable car in Europe with its 3,883 meters of altitude; at the top station on the Klein Matterhorn you will also find a restaurant, a shop, the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise Logde and an observation platform.

IS THE FEEDBACK FROM YOUR TESTERS ENOUGH? The testers we select are certainly among the most experienced on the European scene, at the same time we also know how important it is to have as many evaluations as possible. We rely on technology and thanks to Google Modules we contact over 500 shops where Sequence is distributed through a survey to be filled out for each board tested by us: you can leave feedback only if you know the product well. WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THE DATA COLLECTED? Tired but

happy we return to the editorial office, as all the data are collected, processed and compared with those provided by the companies. A copywriter, together with the members of Sequence staff who conducted the tests, compiles the texts of the review: this is perhaps one of the most difficult tasks because in just over 1000 characters the opinions and an impressive amount of data must be summarized. Once drafted, each individual review is checked and 22

shared with the testers.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH ALL THOSE BOARDS? Once the tests are completed, all the gear is returned to the companies and the final report is shared with them without possibility of modification. We believe that an honest and balanced report, the result of the opinions of experienced and reliable testers, as well as with very different styles and skills, can be a valid tool for evaluating the product from the consumer’s point of view. In a short time the Sequence Snowboard Guide is going to be printed out and then it’s your turn to open your copy of the guide, read and learn from this long but precious job. Final note: we would like to clarify that we have personally selected the boards to be tested and that no contribution has been asked for participation to the brands, so the reviews you will read are the mathematical sum of the unconditional opinions of our testers. Many people ask us why we do not assign the various prizes as the best or worst boards: it is simply because we do not believe that there is a better or worse board than another, in our opinion every board has different characteristics that adapt to different types of riding or rider.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT BOARD BY F E D E R I CO MU R A

Choosing the right board for the next winter session is a hard task but is also cool. You need to take a lot of factors into consideration, but we’re here at Sequence to help you with tiny precious tips!

28


LENGTH

Place the board you’ve chosen in front of your face; if it is between your nose and your chin, it is perfect, however at least three other characteristics must be considered: weight, riding style and type of board. As a general rule, the longer the board is, the more stability and grip will be achieved at high speeds thanks to the larger contact surface of its edges. The plus of having a short board lies instead in the greater handling at low speeds and in the rotations, to the detriment of the stability while riding. But what length for which terrain? Generally, for an all-mountain board, standard sizes are OK: neither too long nor too short. This way you will have a good compromise between handling and stability. The style of riding greatly affects the length of the board. Jibbing and freestyle require an important level of handling; for this, boards of inferior dimensions are privileged. For carving is the other way round. If you are fond of high speeds, carving or just want to overtake skiers, then the choice will be oriented towards larger dimensions. As for boards for powder, it gets more complicated. The length can vary considerably from model to model, and the choice must be evaluated based on the manufacturer’s indications.

SHAPE

One of the most important features regarding the shape is the directionality. Directional boards typically have longer nose than tail, so they are specially designed to have maximum performance in one direction. Fresh snow boards follow this rule, which allows the tail to sink naturally below the snow level. Some models have the so-called swallowtail, which further facilitates the riding, while a nose with a greater surface is a great help on powder days. True twin boards are exactly symmetrical. The nose and tail of the same length allow to have an identical handling during switch riding. This makes them perfect for park features and you can take on jumps and riding in fake with no worries. These boards can be used without problems for freestyle and rails, which makes the directional twin the most widespread shape on the market. In recent years, asymmetrical boards have also been re-launched, which can be either directional or true twin. The longitudinal asymmetry is found in the length of the edges. The heels’ edge is in fact longer than the toes’ one so to facilitate carving which, for mechanical reasons of the human body, is more difficult on the frontside turn. This shape is unbeatable if the privileged style is carving.

CAMBER

The great confusion about camber was brought by Lib Tech, which in 2007 introduced the Reverse Camber with the Skatebanana series. Today, the brands produce all types of camber, specifically designed to suit every riding style. The most common shape is certainly the traditional camber: the central part is raised, leaving the two external parts of the boards just beyond the bindings as points of contact on the snow. This profile allows extreme stability in the turns, and makes it ideal for carving. Another advantage of this camber is the pop but what you will not get from this type of board is definitely the forgiveness. In the rocker camber the point of contact is in the middle of the bindings, while nose and tail stay up. This allows extreme maneuverability at low speeds and makes it one of the favorite

shapes of jibbers. The limits are felt instead at high speeds, as hard carving will be basically impossible, and the board will not have the necessary grip to keep the edge glued to the snow. Excellent floatation on the other hand thanks to its raised nose. The flat camber is the middle way. Often chosen by those who want a versatile all mountain in every situation, and often chosen in the first board to understand which way to go in the following seasons. Thanks to the 2020 materials, good control of edge, good handling, good pop, good float in fresh snow. Finally there are hybrid cambers: these are combinations of the shapes described above. The range of possibilities becomes practically endless and it is therefore always better to deal with your trusted shop. The perfect board for every situation does not exist, but you can choose the right one based on the style of riding and what you like to do.

FLEX

The rigidity of the board is one of the most important characteristics to consider. Generally more rigid flexes are chosen by those who love high speeds and don’t want to give up cornering and carving stability, or like riding in powder. With a softer flex you will have more playfulness, which makes running low-speed flat tricks much easier. If what interests you is the park and the freestyle and prefer medium-sized featuers, rails and kickers, it will probably be better for you a softer board. If, on the other hand, we are talking about XL-sized kickers, then the situation changes: a more rigid board will allow greater precision in the output. But not all flexes are the same. The most common is the twin flex. It means that both the nose and the tail have the same level of rigidity. If the switch is something always present in your riding style, this is probably the type of flex that’s right for you. In the directional flex, however, the nose will have less rigidity than the tail. This technology allows for greater flotation in fresh snow thanks to the bending of the front part of the board, while the stiffer tail guarantees a more powerful pop. There is one last type of flex which is torsional flex. It is basic what you can feel in the midst of the bindings by raising the tip of our boot. A board with greater torsional flex will be faster in edge-toedge change during a turn and the response will be much more direct and precise. A softer flex will make you fall and crash less, but at the cost of a board with less accuracy.

WIDE

The standard width of the boards does not exceed 25 centimeters at the central point. If your boot number exceeds US11 you will probably have to consider buying a wide board. As a general rule, if you look at the board from the top, once you have positioned and centered the boot correctly, the toe and heel should not exceed the edges of the board. The cons is, during a turn with a high inclination, that your face is projected directly into the snow. But the board width also influences the riding. The greater distance between the edges means that the change of edge while turning is slower. The advantage is that the larger surface will float better in fresh snow. Now you are ready to buy your snowboard!

29


HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT BINDINGS BY F E D E R I CO MU R A

An obscure component of snowboard gear, and for this reason perhaps the most complicated to analyze.

30


It should be considered both what is above, and what is underneath; in addition to style, riding level, materials, stiffness and closing methods. It is important not to underestimate the choice of bindings because it is the component of transmission of impulses to the board, and together with the latter responsible for the final performance.

DIMENSIONS

The bindings should be chosen in the right size according to your boot. Surely those who have a number higher than 10US, will have to buy a binding of size L. The precise size of boot for which it is necessary to pass from M to L still remains a mystery. In fact it depends on the size of the shell of the boot (even with the same number and size, the external dimensions may vary from model to model), and from the fact that the bindings have adjustments for centralizing the boot. In many bindings it is possible to move the heel arch for a more central better positioning.

OTHER

Noteworthy are the ankle and toe straps, as well as the front closings that hold the boot firmly to the rest of the binding. The more enveloping and cushioned they are, the better the overall feeling and comfort will be during riding. In some particular bindings we can find particular technologies. For example we can find the baseplate slightly tilted towards the outside to ensure a more natural riding position and a better flexion of the knees; or the adjustment of the spoiler inclination to personalize the edge grip.

COMPATIBILITY

The most classic systems for attaching the bindings to the board are the 2x4 and the 4x4, and if you have a board with this arrangement of screws, you don’t have to worry about particular compatibility. It is different if we talk about Burton boards with the Burton Channel system, a technology that allows to increase the precision of the regulation and to improve the lightness. Burton bindings are naturally compatible with the system, but if you buy another brand it is always better to make sure that the fixing disk has the appropriate adapter.

MATERIALS

The materials used in the construction of the bindings can be plastics, metals, alloys or even carbon in case of the best performing models. Plastics have a good absorption of vibrations and usually a lower price. Metals such as aluminum, on the other hand, have greater resistance to low temperatures and a greater level of impact resistance.

FLEX

Binding stiffness goes hand in hand with board and riding style. Exactly like with board and boots, a greater rigidity is preferred by freeriders for stability, while the more the riding style tends towards jibbing or freestyle, the more it will tend to consider soft bindings. It is very important to choose bindings with an adequate flex for your board, to avoid unbalance. You can test the flex in the spoiler. We can test it by trying to flex the spoiler towards the rear, or by making twists.

CUSHION

Overlanding is the nightmare of every freestyler. In fact, freestyleoriented bindings have cushioning systems to better absorb shocks during wrong landings. Such bindings have greater thicknesses in the baseplate, or even systems based on air pads. Bindings with a thinner baseplate on the contrary will give a more direct feeling on the board and will allow greater precision while carving.

31


HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT BOOTS BY F E D E R I CO MU R A

Choosing the right boot is fundamental, since it is the only component of the gear in direct contact with our body. We assume that the boots should be comfortable.

32


We must take into consideration the width of your sole and of course the length of your foot. It is important to consider the actual length in centimeters of our foot; often EU or US translations can vary a lot from brand to brand. The measurement in Mondopiont (MP), corresponds instead exactly to the length in centimeters of the inner sole of the boot. Snowboard boots have a thermoforming insole that will quickly adapt to the shape of our feet. This is why the length of the boot should be chosen precisely, so that the tip of the foot touches the tip of the boot without bothering. Even the boots have a level of stiffness, also called flex, which must be chosen according to your needs, your riding style, and your equipment. For example, a too soft boot worn while riding a carving board will be definitely underperforming.

STIFF BOOTS

They are more suitable for freeriding and carving. Just think of the har-board boots: almost as stiff as a ski boot to quickly transmit input directly to the board. Stiff boots therefore allow control of the board at high speeds without chattering, and also guarantee good protection of your precious joints.

QUICKLACE SYSTEM

It is a system that allows to tighten the outer shell of the boot through one or two laces and without having to make knots. The double lace systems, as well as in the boa technology, allow a greater precision of the closure and a differentiation between the upper and lower part, ensuring greater customization of the fit.

MEDIUM BOOTS

Also known as all mountain. And, as you can imagine, they stand halfway through stiff and soft boots allowing you to do a bit of everything. Often chosen by those who are starting or simply don’t want to invest in two pairs of boots to have greater precision for each riding style. They are also the choice of high-level freestylers, who need flexibility without giving up the support needed for big tricks and huge landings.

SOFT BOOTS

This is the territory of the jibbing lovers. A soft boot allows lots of ankle mobility, making flat tricks and edge controls at low speeds easier and more natural. This of course will make you lose some stability in high-speed turns, making the control more difficult; what the boot lacks as support, we will have to put it in our leg muscles. However, if you like to kill it on park and street rails, well this is certainly the best choice. An important side note must be made on lacing methods. Over the years, various technologies have been developed that have the purpose of wrapping the foot as evenly as possible during the fit.

TRADITIONAL LACING

It is still one of the most appreciated in the snowboard world. These are classic laces that wrap and close the outer shell of the boot. It is certainly a slower method but allows a manual and personal closure in the individual lengths of the boot.

BOA LACING

It is a fast closing technology that allows to tighten the boot by rotating a wheel in the upper part of the boot. The closure is designed with a very resistant steel cable, and allows the closure of the boot in a rapid and homogeneous way. Also the release is equally fast. 33

For better clarity, each test was divided into a textual part and a series of parameters and judgments, on a scale of values ​​from 1 to 5. 1) GLOBAL IMPRESSION

5) RIDING TERRAIN

2) LIKE/DISLIKE

6) RIDING LEVEL

The first part is dedicated to the global impression, a summary of a few lines wrapping up the impressions of our testers. Generally we start with the general feeling that the product has arisen and then we go deeper through the features and performances on various terrains.

Each product has its strengths and Achilles heels. We have summarized what we believe are the strengths and weaknesses in short but clear texts.

3) GENERAL INFO

This section contains information from the brand, as a camber type, shape and theoretical flex.

4) GENERAL SPECS

The paragraph summarizing the various measures of the tested model provided by the company and then verified by us in the laboratory.

Snowboard products are becoming more and more versatile, so we focused on all mountain and freestyle. A freeride product can be a great all mountain as well as an excellent all mountain can also be suitable for park riding. 5 dots means very suitable for the terrain, and vice versa.

There are performing and difficult products as well as products with high performance for advanced riders that can be easily used by less experienced users: this grid gives you an idea of whether ​​ the board is bread for your teeth or not. The higher the score, the better the board is for a certain type of rider.

7) PERFORMANCE

We have established four different numerical judgment parameters and asked our testers to give their opinion after the global impression and the pros and cons. The ratings range from 1 to 5, where 5 is the maximum.

STEREO

The Paradigma is an all-mountain board par excellence. Super stable and rather on the stiffer side, precise and fast while cruising and carving, it's surprisingly agile and responsive in park: Peter Bauer did a fantastic job.

The Stereo eyes the park and right there it releases all its potential. A very nice board for jumps thanks to its central width that guarantees stability on takeoffs and landings.

Once you strap in and after the first few turns, you'll understand that this board was born to carve. It's not just a thing for carving nerds though. It's easily understandable right from the start, and its surfing quality is just amazing. Fluid, fast and responsive both in cruising and in popping out big ollies. In the park it surprised us. We knew it would be a carving machine, when we took it on transitions it showed it's incisive without overdoing – stable and comfortable on takeoffs and spins.

You'll appreciate the Stereo's medium flex in park, where it can be really fun on features of all dimensions, although it gives its best on those of medium size up. The generous shape in the centre makes it stable on takeoffs and landings, to the detriment of some agility while fast cruising. You can feel its materials' quality from the board reaction. It's responsive without overdoing, it reacts on request and it has got a good and balanced pop – a perfect compromise for an all-round freestyle board.

WE LIKE perfect all-mountain with stand-out freestyle qualities.

WE LIKE a nice freestyle all-round board

WE DISLIKE nothing, really.

DRAFT

SHILOH

The Westmark Draft is a big jibbering machine but functional and precise even on jumps and slopes, where it reveals a perfect edges control.

The Shiloh is sold as an all-mountain freeride board with a freestyle soul. Our thought is similar, but not the same, as we believe this beautiful board is a pure all-mountain that can be taken anywhere.

Riders with completely different styles tested it on groomers and kickers, and the board never disappointed them. One for the advanced rider with trained legs, this board gives back a good pop when you put it up to the test in the correct way, with a perfect edge control – also thanks to the camber system and its well-balanced shape. The many awards it has collected throughout the years during several tests can only confirm our impression: this board is not for everyone, but for all the rest – thumbs up! WE LIKE despite its natural jibbing soul, this board is fantastic on all terrains. WE DISLIKE not for beginners.

You fall in love with the Shiloh at first glance, thanks to its basic but super stylish design from Aaron Draplin. A part from its well picked design through, all we can tell you about the Shiloh, after all the feedbacks, is that everyone like it, on all terrains. You can take it on the slopes and ride and turn it fast and it's precise, while it's equally responsive in park, where it reveals a nice and good pop every time you want it. It's not for everyone though, you still need some kind of experience to enjoy it to the max, but it's really a board you can easily take in backcountry, park and on the slopes. WE LIKE a fantastic all-mountain board and for all terrains. WE DISLIKE not for beginners, who wouldn't take advantage of its potential.

BATALEON

BATALEON

WA L L I E

G O L I AT H B Y N D M D L S

The Bataleon Wallie is a 100% jibbing board, no doubt about it. Its reign is the park and thanks to the Triple Base with Sidekick catching an edge is just not happening.

Tor Lundstrom picked the Goliath for its Beyond Medals project not by chance. An all-mountain freestyle board capable of killing it on any terrain so naturally.

Two words to define the Wallie: absolutely fun. Everything about this fantastic twin from Low Pressure makes you smile. Born to jib, the Wallie is perfect for the advanced rider who's in search of a street board or just fun, but also for the beginner who wants a board to progress with. Medium boxes and jumps are so much fun thanks to its 3BT and itw low camber is not too much responsive but enough for average size features.

Since Bataleon beginnings, the Goliath has been one of their staples. And it still is one of the most favourite boards from the fans of the brand from Amsterdam. All this because of its 3BT medium uplift with sidekick, a medium camber and a perfectly balanced shape, which all make it an all-terrain machine – from groomers to backcountry, through the park. Our testers took it to the icy snow in the early morning and they went jibbing with it with slushy snow and no one raised a negative comment. The Goliath is the true ATV from LPS.

WE LIKE Absolutely fun board for everyone. WE DISLIKE base a bit too slow.

WE LIKE a multi-purpose board responsive on all terrains. WE DISLIKE you can feel the 3BT a bit more than usual with this board, and if you're not used to it maybe it is difficult at first.

TUNDRA

The French brand Borealis keeps on attracting attention, year after year, thanks to the quality and reliability of its products and this Koi is all this in a nutshell.

The Tundra is business card of this French company and is back to claim the all-mountain freestyle board crown

Precise, fast, smooth. The Koi is a fantstic freeride board which feels at ease on hard-packed snow though, where turns out to be a real carving machine too. In and out the turns is precise and its grip is perfect, at high speeds as well. Although not really OK for park, we took it on a few jumps and it turned out to be stable and responsive. Surely its ideal terrain is powder, the directional camber with that shape and that rocker sharpened on the nose confirm it all, being at ease on groomers too. WE LIKE perfect board for freeriding, with a smooth and precise riding. WE DISLIKE the emphasised rocker on hard-packed snow makes getting into a turn a bit less precise than getting out of it.

The Tundra is a nice board because it's fairly intuitive but it never disappoints you with new surprising characteristics, that our testers found out through an intense use. In the beginning it might seem a classic all-mountain board, easy from the first turns, but then the more you push it the more it releases its technical soul so to give you a fantastic feeling both on the slope and in park, with a precise riding and a pop that is never too much. It also has a very nice steadiness both on takeoff and landing. Just the perfect all-mountain. WE LIKE A very nice all-mountain board, well balanced and easy.

DEEP THINKER

The Paramount is a fantastic freestyle board, quite intuitive and high-performing, as well as absolutely fun. The shape is balanced and fast and the flex is playful to the extent of having fun on mid-sized jumps and jibs in park.

The Deep Thinker is a modern board, capable of high performances without being too "technical". It is definitely fun but if you push it to the limit it shows all its character.

Fun, playful, easy and responsive to the right point, these four terms summarize in an exhaustive way what is becoming one of the top park boards of the company from Burlington, Vermont. The Paramount can be ridden very well, stable on the slope if not taken at excessive speeds (but this is not why it was designed for), in park it gives the maximum joy with a pleasant pop but never too excessive. The shape is not wide but generous at the right point to make it stable even on medium to large sized jump landings.

There were obviously expectations on this board, signed and ridden by Danny Davis as a Do-It-All for having fun on groomers, on side hits, park and backcountry. These expectations have not been betrayed, in fact - according to all the testers - the board is at the same time fun and intuitive on all terrains, but if taken to the limit it reacts in an excellent way: on the slopes it is precise and fast on edge-to-edge changes, on jumps it is fun and reactive to the point everyone can handle it, without backfiring with an explosive response, but always effective.

WE LIKE nice park board, easy and reactive.

WE LIKE perfect board, intuitive and performing on any terrain.

WE DISLIKE not really for experienced riders who wanna hit big features.

SUPERDOA

U LT R A F E A R

The multi-awarded DOA comes back as a superhero: the SuperDoa. What really strikes of this board is its perfomances without compromising the ease of use. Precise, powerful, easy at the same time.

The Ultrafear is a solid board, fun and extremely simple. But don't judge a book by its cover, because this flat camber board is able to shock you under many aspects.

The DOA's powered-up version impressioned all our testers, who described it as one of the best all-mountain freestyle board of Zermatt quiver test. Precise in turning, fast in edge changing thanks to its well-balanced shape. The profile resort is a plus, because it's reactive and nevertheless easy for the bigger public and less advanced riders. We definitely can't say it's intuitive and playful, but even a beginner wouldn't be that much taken aback with the SuperDoa under his feet. Anyway, sure it is a board for the advanced riders.

Once strapped in the Ultrafear, you immediately feel at home. The Park Profile, basically a flat camber with an early rise on nose and tail, despite making the board extremely easy, never fail to let you down in riding until high speeds. In park it gives you a really nice feeling. Up until you take it on average features, despite having no camber, it reveals a surprisingly lively pop (considering that it's flat) and it's agile on the edges. Well done!

WE LIKE precise, fast, edgy but not that much. WE DISLIKE despite its lighter 3D core, the board is a bit heavier than the

WE LIKE fun, easy but also performing. WE DISLIKE not really for big kickers or high speed riding.

MEGA

P LY

The Mega re-confirms itself as a nice freestlye board for those riders who want performance and pop. Not everyone's board, but the advanced riders will enjoy it, especially in park and on groomers.

Easy and fun, the Ply is a fantastic jib board for average features. It's an extremely intuitive board, apt for beginners too, but also advanced riders can equally have fun with it.

Edgy but with no excesses, with a balanced and fast shape, the Mega is a very nice board – on this, all testers agreed. Absolutely performing, on medium-big kickers it gives its best with a really surprising control and precision. Despite all this, it's not an extremely difficult board, although better beginners stay away from it – getting the best out of it is for the ones with legs as trunks.

All testers agreed on the Ply being intuitive and confident since the first turns. It's not a board for kickers or high speed, but for medium-small jumps and presses on groomers it's terribly fun. The fact that less advanced users had fun with it says a lot about DC's ability to realise simple boards but absolutely not ordinary.

WE DISLIKE soft, not really for medium-big features and fast riding.

Nice, fast and responsive freestyle board, suitable for park riding on medium up to big features, the DF Team satisfies even the most advanced users with good pop and precision, not surprisingly it has been chosen by many riders of the Drake team.

Dedicated to the task and performing in the generic freestyle field: this is how the Drake Team can be summarized. Reactive without excesses and precise whike ridden, it can be an excellent all-in-one board for advanced users.

A good and reactive pop, with an excellent ride, the DF team convinced all the testers. We would dare to say it's balanced, because its pop is not excessive. In fact compared to the Team it is slightly less stiff but when needed it's right there, and it makes the board work in an optimal way. She was taken to the slope, on kickers and jib features without any mistakes or disappointing anyone. Stable on landings and enjoyable on groomers, it is an absolutely pleasant board for mainly freestyle use but also all mountain. Thumbs up for the DF Team.

You can ride it in an excellent way, fast in edge-to-edge changes, it has a nice playful pop without exceeding and it is stable: they are all characteristics that make this board an excellent all-mountain definitely for freestyle purposes. All the testers agreed in saying that there is not really an area in which it is weak, if anything there has not been a specific one in which it has shone, but it is the compromise necessary to obtain a weapon for all terrains, above all beaten tracks. Another very positive feature is the speed of the base, excellent material and tuning.

WE LIKE nice freestyle polyvalent board and balanced on any terrain.

WE LIKE freestyle polyvalent board for transitions and jibs, for advanced

users.

WE DISLIKE not even one defect in particular.

G E N E R A L I N FO

WE DISLIKE not for rookies and it doesn't excel on any terrain.

DINOSAUR WILL DIE

WEST

POW REAPER

L A H A C H E LT D

Under the super original shape of this Pow Reaper, it beats the heart of an all-mountain board that can be drawn to a couple of turns in fresh powder - and all this with the unmistakable DWD style.

West is a very interesting brand from Switzerland and led by the pro David Lambert. The Hache is an all-mountain model with high performance and very well designed.

Fun is what all the Dinosaurs Will Die have in common. That's right, all DWD boards are seriously fun. More or less soft, more or less technical, but all equally fun: this Pow Reaper is no exception. Shape with hyper-squared tips to imitate a coffin, directional shape and flat camber with early rise on the nose, this board was born to rip off the beaten tracks and to have fun on the slopes... and, why not, to jump in the park.

Despite it looks like it has no hidden NASA technology inside, this board killed it and all our testers loved it. One thing they particularly digged is the shape measures balance. This board slides well, rides very sharply and the edge-to-edge is super fast. But it also has a good pop, a thing that doesn't make it just a simple all-mountain for cruising around like a tourist, but a real backcountry weapon for kickers and park. A special mention for its design, really refined with a good taste.

WE LIKE all-mountain fun cruiser.

WE LIKE premium all-mountain freestyle board.

WE DISLIKE it’s not an all-mountain for a one-board quiver.

FUNKY

ABRACADABRA

S P R AY

Under the easygoing look and the shape that makes you think of a cruising board, there is a 100% freestyle stallion that is not easily tameable but has top-level performance.

The Spray is confirmed to be a highly respected park board, with a playful pop despite being a flat camber with rockered tips. Maybe it's actually more than just a park board...

Like the name, Abracadabra hides one or more magic tricks. Let's start with the shape, which looks directional but actually it is only in the form of its tips: in truth, a twin tip is hidden underneath. Let's move on to the general impression, which left all the testers astonished, sure to have enough after a couple of laps on the slopes and instead... Pure freestyle breed made in Italy with heart and excellent materials, the Abracadabra is a performance board.

Funky has accustomed us to quality and this new Spray just confirms it all. Born to be a snow skate, actually it is much more lively than other boards in the same category and - despite the zero camber with a rockered nose and tail - it has surprised all the testers with a really surprising pop and reactivity, thanks to the Carbon Sling that gives the Puma Core a further boost. Generous in shape, it's good for riders with big feet even in the shortest sizes.

WE LIKE all-mountain freestyle board of top tier.

WE LIKE Playful park board with a nice pop.

WE DISLIKE not for rookies and not for rails.

WE DISLIKE not for riders with tiny feet.

FOREST BAILEY

MULLAIR

This all-mountain board from Forest Bailey raised positive thoughts but surely distant from what one would expect from an all-mountain product by Mervin.

Nicolas Muller's board got very positive remarks, with its real all-mountain soul, able to really take on several different terrains (groomed or not) if experienced riders step in it.

Don't get us wrong, we're not saying we didn't like it. On the contrary we loved it, but the testers were floored at the beginning because they didn't expect it to be that much different from a classic directional all-mountain board. Everyone agreed that it was perfect in turning, at high speed too, but it turned out to be soft and playful too, a characteristic that makes it suitable for park despite its directional shape, the micro taper and a setback of one centimetre.

You can't ever go wrong with a Mervin board realised for mr. Nicolas Muller. This board perfectly adheres to the rider's style who signed it – a breeded all-mountain with a freestyle twist, able to surprise you in backcountry thanks to an agile shape but at the same time generous and born to float. A part from its shape, half of the magic is done by its C3 camber, which combines first-class performance (pop and riding responsiveness included) with a handling not for everyone but for the majority.

WE LIKE Positively impressed from its handling and playfulness.

WE LIKE a premium all-mountain board friendly but with top performance.

WE DISLIKE maybe a bit too soft for certain all-mountain purposes.

WE DISLIKE not for absolute beginners.

JONES

JONES

M O U N TA I N T W I N

AV I AT O R

The Mountain Twin is Jones’ other all-mountain board, and differentiates from the Aviator by having a slightly smoother character – probably because of its Cam Rock bend.

The Aviator is one of the two all-mountain freestyle boards from Jones. It's the most technical one and the most appropriate for carving. Despite its reputation, it's not a difficult board, despite its high-level performance.

The differences between the two are subtle. The shapes are similar, but the Mountain Twin's personality is far more playful and forgiving. Since its conception a decade ago, the Mountain Twin has cemented its position as the all-mountain board for Jones fans - those who have got a Solution or Flagship for the good days, but they can't live without a Jones board on the resort days.

Good old Jeremy spoiled us, as the first thing you notice in all his boards is their riding quality. The Aviator turns really well, fast and precise, it’s unquestionable. But what surprises us is that despite being a pretty technical board and definitely not for beginners, this Aviator turns out to be very natural and most of all incredibly rewarding on groomers and in the park, where its pop, responsiveness and quick edge-to-edge make it really, really high performance fun.

WE LIKE an all-mountain with interesting freestyle features, playful on groomers and in park. WE DISLIKE feels less stable than some of its freeride stablemates.

AFTERBL ACK

BROADCAST

The Afterblack is the favourite board of most of K2 team riders: it's a freestyle board, without any shadow of a doubt, but it is also at ease when you take it on groomers or in powder.

An extremely intuitive board with a likewise easy feature: an all-mountain board that does well anywhere. And with “intuitive” we don't mean for beginners, but built with proved recipes and good materials.

Everyone loved the Afterblack, literally everyone right from the start. Thanks to its well-thought shape, with a balanced sidecut to get in and out of turns really fast, rocker on tips that makes it forgiving and a pop focused on nose and tail, leaving the centre responsive and yet playful. Basically you can press easily but you can also make a badass ollie, which is a thing of park boards everyone likes, but at the same time not that common.

All the testers loved the Broadcast for its friendliness and semplicity right from the start. It boasts a pretty fast sintered base, balanced shape for an agile handling on groomers and directional to optimise the riding. The directional camber makes it responsive and lively, both on edge-to-edge and entering or going out of the turns, but also on takeoffs where it shows all its stability and easiness of handling. An all-mountain that is worth an entire quiver.

WE LIKE a well performing freestyle board.

WE LIKE a fantastic all-mountain that is able to go freestyle any time.

WE DISLIKE not that easy to approach for the less expert.

KORUA

KORUA

OT TO

PENCIL

Since its birth, the Otto stood out as the joining link between carving and freestyle. Once again all our testers loved it, even the more demanding ones and those who are distant from Korua's snowboarding belief.

Born to make huge wide turns in powder thanks to its characteristic pointy nose and halfmoon tail, the Pencil turns out to be a rocket on hard-packed snow, just like all its Korua siblings.

All our testers agreed on the Otto's versatility and high-level performance. As expected from Korua, it's very sharp entering and exiting turns, but also surprisingly agile and playful even on transitions, where it shocked everyone for its handling and stability. Despite the float camber was chosen for floating in powder thanks to its rockered front section, it turned out to be efficient both on groomers and on takeoffs and landings as well. To wrap it up – a perfect all-mountain board with a freestyle soul.

Surprisingly agile despite its length and generous central width, this Pencil is a fantastic freeride and carving board that functions like shorter and thinner boards. Testers were surprised by its semplicity of getting in and out the turns, with a precise and rapid edge-to-edge. The ingenious mix of its parameters set up for a shape that is fun and performing at the same time, which didn't let down on transitions, despite not being its favourite terrain though.

WE LIKE Korua typical all-mountain board with strong freestyle features.

WE DISLIKE fairly heavy.

Jess Burtner's board is a fun and playful freestyle board, but with surprising secret characteristics that you find out little by little as you ride it and gain confidence, revealing all its dynamism

True to its name, the Orca goes straight to the point – it rides fast and nothing can stop her. An excellent freeride-all-mountain compromise, the Orca has also good freestyle skills, as long as your physical skills can tame her.

If at a first glance it seems to be a fun park board, forgiving and soft, excellent for presses and for all those little special tricks Jesse Burtner always made us accustomed to, once you gain confidence it reveals more than all this. The Original Banana is asbolutely the best reverse camber that has ever been designed, because it gives you forgiveness but also a good pop at the same time and, thanks to the Magna Traction, a riding precision you can only find in the best all-mountain boards. To wrap it up, take a fun board for jibbing, add a medium and playful pop, and lastly an all-mountain edge control. WE LIKE soft and fun freestyle board, with a superior pop and handling.

WE LIKE a fantastic freeride all-mountain with freestyle skills for expert riders.

WE DISLIKE not really for big features.

Mervin put her under the experimental boards, although the boards that come out from the Seattle dreams factory are all experimental in some sense. Born as a freeride all-mountain, you can even take the Orca on transions and reacts well, showin a responsive pop but not that rough. The Magna Traction does a really good job, offering you a precise riding, an edge control on all kinds of snow (you can't almost feel the change from slushy to icy), and a very little effort to ride the board. The Mervin Core has always got something special, a responsiveness and a reaction that you can rarely find somewhere else.

LOBSTER

LOBSTER

STOMPER

SHIFTER

The Stomper was born as an all-mountain freestyle pick in the Lobster quiver, concentrating all the Low Pressure Studio best technology in a bizarre design board with a certain impact.

Together with the Lucas Beaufort, there's an important development for the Helgason brothers' brand, as they decided to design some of their models without their very own Low Pressure 3BT system.

The medium flex and the 3BT Freestyle give a particular Low Pressure character to this board that works so well just like all the boards with the 3D base, providing that you manage to tune in with this exclusive technology. The new directional twin shape makes this board even more playful and performing on groomers, because in park it already is. Despite it was designed for a pretty technical freestyle, the Stomper actually performs even on rails with a pretty energetic pop, still remaining a board not particularly difficult. On the contrary, it's pretty intuitive and enjoyable.

It feels really strange to ride a Lobster without its typical 3BT, anyway the only sidekick (an exclusive Low Pressure feature that rises the contact points) seems in part to compensate and give back that “catch free” feeling Bataleon and Lobster made us accustomed, and it’s probably the best way to get familiar with 3BT gradually. This board is playful but fairly responsive, absolutely for park and especially for jibbing. Its shape works well, so agile and intuitive that makes this board apt for a wide public – not a common thing for LPS boards.

WE LIKE fun and technical freestyle board, still fairly intuitive

SENSOR

SCORE

Arguably, the Sensor one of the best boards in this class that we tried out. All our testers were struck and surprised by its intuitivily perfect balance and performance.

An all-mountain board for anyone, but one that focuses on beginners and intermediate riders. It’s chill to ride, for precise and smooth surfing.

Its a board that you can tune into immediately: the feedback you get from it is instantaneous and even seems to beg for more.. This Swiss-designed all-mountain freestyle board never feels like it’s going to let you down after the first few turns and airs, going on to reveal excellent characteristics for all aspects of riding powerful and yet well balanced. It’s poppy with an agile shape, but still feels stable on takeoffs and landings. To wrap up, it's a fantastic freestyle board for experienced park riders but can be used on literally any kind of terrain. Thumbs up.

Just like the Sensor, the Score strikes a chord for an immediate confidence that is installed from the first turn. The difference here is the mix of characteristics, picked to put weekend warriors and beginners at ease. Riding it is just like what you would expect from a real all-mountain stick, carving in and out of turns feels progressive, friendly and well-balanced for the less experienced. WE LIKE Nice and easy all-mountain board. WE DISLIKE not for the experienced rider.

WE LIKE All-mountain freestyle board perfectly balanced. WE DISLIKE nothing really.

NITRO

NITRO

SQUASH

BEAST

Born in the Quiver laboratory, this board has won awards and earned itself a first-class ticket in the Nitro family. Born to run at high speed, its comfort zone is both on the soft and hard-packed snow.

Its name says it all: the Beast is a real true freestyle branded Nitro animal. Technical board for those who want performance on all transitions, the bigger the better, and why not, even in turns.

An absolutely precise board as an advanced rider (not so much experienced, but not a beginner anyways) will appreciate straight from the first turns the feeling of a low ride sport car with its wheels well anchored on the ground. This doesn't mean the Squash can't fly, but its home is powder turns, where you can take full advantage of its long nose and swallow tail, as you can appreciate the refinement of its perfectly balanced shape parameters.

Designed by Nitro riders Kleveland, Ettala, Thorgren and Bergrem, this board is what you can define as a professional tool for those who put many kilometres and much air under its base. Built to be fast, responsive, precise and tough, its main target is freestyle performance on any kind of transition – from halfpipe to big kickers, through the hips. In turns is precise and reactive, its pop is lethal and if ridden by experienced legs like trunks, it's really difficult to find any defects. The epic graphic with the monster tells everything about what's under its topsheet.

WE LIKE perfect freeride and all-mountain board. WE DISLIKE not for beginners.

BURNOUT

It's getting a bit dull going through all the qualities of this innovative Ride board every year again and again, but we can't do otherwise. With the PIG family, Ride has re-defined the fun board concept.

One of the Ride team favourites, the Burnout is a thoroughbred freestyle horse born for those advanced riders who want to raise their bar - in total comfort though.

The Warpig is the species godfather, who really gave a new meaning to the “fun board” term. Before the Pig all the other fun boards had also good all-mountain performance, yet without any premium highs. The Pig just raised the quality bar. There has been no tester who came back without a huge smile on his face, and loads of very nice words for this tiny thingy that turns like a snowboard cross board while jumps like a slopestyle rocket.

The Burnout is an average stiff board, especially in torsion and has got quite the pop but without being too much explosive. Its shape is the same story: a precise riding, agile in and out the turns but not too much powerful. It's really difficult to put down into words the feelings all our testers had trying out this board. It's as if they had taken an easy-going park board and pumped it up, but not too much. Surely for advanced riders, but also the not so beginners can enjoy it – at least at 50%.

WE LIKE a unique board that includes many boards.

WE LIKE a performing freestyle board but perfectly balanced.

WE DISLIKE nothing.

WE DISLIKE beginners will understand just something of it.

ROME SDS

ROME SDS

GANG PLANK

N AT I O N A L

What's really weird, but in the absolutely positive sense, of this Gang Plank, is that Rome managed to give a camber-like pop, although it's actually totally flat.

The Rome National is a true all-mountain as it performs pretty well on all terrains – that's why it's the favourite of so many Rome riders.

The Gang Plank is not the classic flat board that you might expect: smooth and fantastic on the boxes and maybe on some rails, but when you want some pop you feel the absence of the bridge. Its pop is really something and when you press, especially on the tips, you can get a nice response. Its generous shape makes this board stable and perfect for transitions up to a medium size or maybe even more. Pure riding is precise and easy, thanks to the continous edge contact without any extra pressure.

Generous shape, fusion camber and single barrel carbon fiber inserts make the National a less than tame beast, but anyway well balanced and able to make a wide range of riders. Its central width makes it a board for those long-footed riders or those who want a stable board on landings and capable of floating in powder during those off-piste days or on backcountry kickers' landings. Its pop is well measured but to take advantage of the National at its 100% you need to have average trained legs, so it's not really for the absolute beginners.

WE LIKE flat camber park board above the average.

WE LIKE Textbook all-mountain board. WE DISLIKE Not for beginners.

WE DISLIKE not for narrow boards lovers.

SANDY SHAPES

SANDY SHAPES

VIRTUOSA

RIBELLE

Surfing a Sandy is like playing a craft instrument - it's a completely different experience from the rest. The Virtuosa is a directional that acts as a directional carving board.

It's nice to see an Italian company that innovates; since it was born in 2016, Sandy has always followed its own path by proposing brilliant, functional and exclusive solutions. And this Rebel is no exception.

At first it is weird to strap in a board that might seem like a normal all-mountain freeride and instead what you find yourself under your feet is in effect a carving machine, which offers a unique experience and above all does not reveal any dark corner in the management of the turn, both entering and exiting: tight and wide turns, sudden changes of direction, the Virtuosa seems to have the autopilot and already knows what it must do before you push. Thumbs up! WE LIKE all mountain performante come poche.

With only 147 cm in total length, the Rebel may seem like a jib board, but in truth it is much more than that. Once strapped in and dialed in the first turns, we immediately understand what the concept of Raduction is made of. Containing the length, Alessandro Marchi and his team increased the width and stiffened the structure. The result is a board that turns fast, holds the edge well and when brought to the park it is fun, especially on medium and jib features.

SANTA CRUZ

SANTA CRUZ

SL ASHER BL ACK

ACID HAND

Performing and easy all-mountain of Santa Cruz, extremely intuitive but not at all underwhelming, fun both on groomers where it offers a soft but precise riding, and in park that really looks like its natural habitat.

Similarly to Slaher, this Acid Hand also immediately convinced by its intuitiveness, even if this model, given the more rigid flex and the more generous shape, is for an all-mountain use.

The Slasher especially was loved for its intuitiveness. As soon as you strap in and dial in the first turns, it does not have secrets, but at the same time it is performing and precise, thanks to a shape that is not too wide and therefore extremely easy to handle. The Hybrid Snap Rocker camber offers good edge control and - thanks to the raised tips - a ride that forgives minor errors and assists the presses.

Easy, beautiful to ride and reactive, these are the first three characteristics that describe the Acid Hand. The classic camber makes it more responsive than the Slasher and the more generous shape welcomes riders with feet even above the size number 9. It presents a nice pop and offers a soft and precise riding, without surprises but equally pleasant. The graphics recall the cultural legacy of Santa Cruz and therefore lovers of the Old School skateboarding will appreciate.

HAPPY PL ACE

AT V

The Happy Place was fun on all kinds of terrain, thanks to its stability appreciated by the finest riders who took it on groomers. It rides nicely also in park, where it shows off all its potential on transitions.

Gigi Ruf's company makes a huge comeback and this ATV is one of its experienced ambassadors. ATV stands for All Terrain Vehicle, which perfectly describes the target of this board.

The Happy Place is not a board for beginners. But it's not even a board only for pros. To enjoy it at its best you just need some little skills, and not because of its stiffness – if ridden by an average experienced rider, the Happy Place becomes a really nice freestyle board, stable and ideal for park riding on jibs and kickers, as well as it is fast and precise on groomers despite its medium-soft flex. The progressive sidecut, the pretty fast sintered base and the cam rock give you a pleasant and precise surfing experience.

It might seem not exactly as much intuitive at first turns, but it doesn't take long for the ATV to be loved. Once you get your confidence on, it gives back to you a precise riding, with a fast edge-to-edge and a perfectly balanced reactivity. It's not such an edgy board. You can guess its responsiveness basically from the way it adapts on the terrain and reacts your toes and heels's power – if ridden by experienced riders.

WE LIKE freestyle machine with high performance.

WE DISLIKE not really intuitive at first.

BLUNT

DST

The Blunt is a fun and pretty intuitive board, different than the DST. This all-mountain freestyle board in fact is destined to a totally different public, made of weekend warriors or experts in search of a forgiving tool.

A mythological hale surrounds this brand, led by snowboard industry veteran Rasmus Ostergaard. It was a real pleasure then testing this so much appraised boards, that totally satisfied the hype.

You'll like the Blunt from the first turns, thanks to its extreme intuitivity and riding easiness. Its Low Profile Camber, with camber under your feet and a flat zone in between the bindings, makes this board performing both on groomers and in park, with that extra playfulness for presses and butter tricks.

The DST pleases the eye. With its double swallowtail is surely one of those boards you simply can't forget. But the good things really come only once you strap in. It's a carving machine, on groomers and on soft snow, comfortable like a Cadillac but performing like a Corvette. Precise in and out turns, with a fast edge-to-edge and stable at any speed, this board makes everyone happy – both slopes lovers and freeriders, whoever wants to raise the bair and enjoy a board with something more.

WE LIKE intuitive and playful. WE DISLIKE a bit unsteady at high speed

SOCK

Another news coming from Italy is the VLS, which presents an interesting catalog of boards with very precise aims and an interesting price, considering the handicraft production.

Another interesting board from the new-born VLS is the Sock, born for carving but also comfortable in backcountry and why not, even on medium-sized jumps.

The Swallowtail is an interesting freeride board, available only in the 152 size, with generous width to compensate the limited length, a long rocker nose and a central camber to keep it lively on all terrains. We tested it both on the slopes, where it proved to be agile and responsive, and also in the park, where despite the strange shape, it was fun with a lively pop.

The quality of the materials is the first thing that catches the eye, not just holding it in your hands, but even using it on the snow. This board, available only in size 154, is designed to turn fast and have fun on the slopes. An interesting feature of VLS is that the designers do not preclude a wider use, in fact on the advice of the company, we also brought it on transitions where it actually did not disfigure. However, its comfort zones are the slopes.

WE LIKE agile and reactive.

WE LIKE a good performing all mountain.

WE DISLIKE nothing.

WE DISLIKE not suitable for riders with particularly small feet.

GHOST

T H E G R E AT S

Yes's Ghost is always a synonim for all-mountain performance directed to freestyle and backcountry. This new edition goes on the same path as its ancestors, with something more.

Yes shakes the classic stuff up with this The Greats, asymmetric with segmented tips. But you won't believe your eyes once you strap in and ride it.

The beauty in Yes boards lies in the fact that they copy well on any terrain, without giving you the impression of being extremely technical boards. To make ourselves clear: this Ghost is the board that DCP, Romain de Marchi and JP Solberg jump 30 metres in powder with, but if ridden by a common human is equally enjoyable. Riding is precise and it has a fast edge-to-edge, thanks to the exclusive technology MidBite. Its camber is a Cam Rock the Yes way, with a positive section that ends with slotted holes for bindings, a thing that makes it responsive but soft and forgiving at the same time.

JP Solberg rides this board basically everywhere – there must be a reason then. The asymmetrical boards like this one have a tighter backside edge radius than the front edge one, to balance out the speed while turning. This The Greats, as the name suggests, is really great on groomers and on medium-big features, so it should be perfect for backcountry kickers too we guess. Not ideal for beginners since its stiffness and its shape a bit more difficult. WE LIKE perfect all-mountain with a nice pop. WE DISLIKE not for beginners.

WE LIKE a technical board but for the vast public. WE DISLIKE nothing.

MASTER SERIES BY CHRIS ROACH

Nothing better than co-founder and snowboard legend Chad Otterstrom words can describe this all mountain murder: "I designed The Graduate Series with the idea of building a board that will ride everything. Jumps, lines, pow and pipe. It has an agressive profile and flex that gives you complete control over this snowboard when you ride."

Chris Roach designed this high performance directional freeride machine to go fast, rip the whole mountain, but keeping it flexible enough to butter. The directional shape and the Durasurf Sintered 4501 base guarantee a fast and performing ride, while the microcamber and the medium camber makes it really fun for playing on all the terrains.

Horst loves to play! Whether you take him on a ride to the Park, hit some side features or simply want to cruise down the slope - this board guarantees pure fun. A soft flex and mellow rocker make the board playful while its full bamboo core gives pop and stability. This is your perfect choice for serious jibbing or for an entry level allround board.

This is the deluxe big brother of Horst. We kept a similar shape as Horst has, flattened the rocker and added the new flax and carbon inlays in the tip and tail area. These changes provide you with an extra portion of pop, dampening and direct control, making Horst Walter the magic allrounder.

This board is our tribute to Japanese snowboarding culture. Inspired by the architecture of ancient Shinto temples, it is designed to perform in the magic pow worlds we are all craving so much. The massive shovel and its waist width generate the necessary float while its characteristic tail leads to effortless turns. Lean back and enjoy.

With an extra poppy flex, the souped-up Burton Rewind is for riders who charge hard, and like to flaunt a freestyle attitude backed by steady park progression. The flat, ultra-thin, and skate-like profile improves the ride, thanks to Filet-O-Flex design, yet rips harder than any soft board out there.

FAMILY TREE HOMETOWN HERO

THINKER

Designed to thrive in Burton's backyard, this chunder buster loves to go fast, blast, and dodge through the tightest trees. Burton board designers spend a lot of time poking around in the woods of Vermont, Burton home state. Tight trees, steep lines, and sudden drops are to be expected, and the Burton Hometown Hero is custom tailored to power through it all. Blast past the tourists and cut straight to the goods. Strategically placed glass stiffens up the nose and tail, allowing the center to flex while retaining snap and response where you need it most. Directional Camber blends with Balanced Freeride Geometry to maintain stability, while an FSC Certified Super Fly II core pairs with bio-based Super Sap Epoxy for a low carbon footprint.

The Thinker family offers the best of the best in all freeride riding needs – but, not only. They are the Free and the Deep, directional boards always ready to respond to every type of solicitation. Nothing less than the legend Danny Davis himself picked and approved them both, and he uses it not only in freeride but also in park, in halfpipe and basically in every corner of the mountain. The Keith Haring inspired graphics of both are a real return to the origins, a leap back to the 1990s for two boards with guaranteed success. If you are looking for something that gives you maximum freedom of expression on the hill, the Free and the Deep will best meet your needs. Don't set limits, and choose with caution!

MOUNTAIN CLEAN UP DAYS 2019: SUSTAINABILITY IS KING! We love the mountains, outdoor activities and we are active in our local communities to reduce our environmental impact, aiming at the sustainability goals that Burton set for 2020. That's why Burton came up with the Burton Mountain Clean Up Day, with the intent to clean up our mountains from the garbage that accumulates in the winter season, and that becomes visible only in spring after the snow is melted. The event is free, open to everyone, youngsters and less young, and all the necessary cleaning material (completely eco-sustainable) is provided by Burton Italy. The 2019 tour ended successfully, as it comprehended three locations on Italian Alps: Madonna di Campiglio, Livigno and Sestriere. Many volunteers walked many kilometers of trails on foot, armed with bags and gloves, and the same sustainable spirit that distinguishes all those who

share a passion for mountains and outdoor activities. MADONNA DI CAMPIGLIO / JULY 5 2019

Testo descrittivo: This game-changing new model takes the shaping and camber theory from one of the best snowboards ever and loaded it with some of the highest end technical attributes available. The new FSC Certified 3D Hover Core provides lightweight and high impact resistance while delivering maximum pop.

This is the switchblade of powder boards and it will slash the backcountry like no other. While many great powder boards are large and surfy, this comes in a compact chassis with a powder nose and a slightly tapered tail, making the Kazu Pro quick and maneuverable.

DC SNOWBOARDING – A CAMBER FOR EVERY OCCASION The range of DC snowboards offers five different cambers, all made to meet the needs of the most diverse types of riders and conditions. Five camber profiles, for maximum choice. LOCK & LOAD CAMBER: we start with a traditional camber at the center of the board when discharged of rider's weight, but then it flattens out and increases the points of contact when loaded, so as to facilitate rails missions and huge ollies. It is a camber profile inspired by skateboards that allows these boards to be powerful and firm at the same time. This exclusive DC camber is featured in the Mega, the Ply and the Forever boards. CAMBER TRADIZIONALE: It is the most classic of board profiles, with a bridge under the bindings that extends between the contact points of the table from tip to tail. It allows a perfect control of the board in the landing as well as a perfect conduction of high-speed carving. We find the

traditional camber on The 156, the Space Echo and the PBJ models. ROCKER: flat board between the bindings and then slightly raised to the outside of the feet, to offer great ease in the edge-to-edge. It is the most forgiving profile, perfect for beginners or for slopestyle use. This profile is used on the Focus and on the Biddy women's table. S-CAMBER: 4 mm of camber between the bindings completed by a flat before the tail, offers greater floatation in the deeper powder. Used in the HR. FLAT PROFILE: traditional flat board with many points of contact, clearly inspired by skate. This special profile will make your snowboard even more stable. It's the camber chosen by DC for the Ply Mini.

This year too Drake pro rider Kohei Kudo has a signature board. He started from the pro model Team because it synthesizes all the features necessary for its eclectic style and multi-terrain; pop, speeds and reactivity from the street to backcountry sessions.

Urban, as the name itself, is born to face asphalt and steel during the street session as well as in the park. The Skate camber is design to give the perfect mix of responsive and pressability. The Lightweight pop core makes it a snow skateboard, lightweight and resistant.

One from the many values of the DF is to give to an inexpert rider the possibility to improve himself, starting with the basics till the first session in the park. The Twin Tip shape with Super pop core joins perfectly with the Double camber hybrid that makes the board easy and responsive at the same time.

We can assure you, this is the Drake team's favorite board, equipped with all the features that make an experienced rider happy and grateful for his snowboard. The Team is a light board thanks to the Performer woodcore with which it is made and maintains the stability in conduction even at high speeds thanks to a special Directional Twin shape combined with the most classic of camber. Complete with the fast Sintra 8000 synthesized base and resistant glass triaxobiax fibers, the Team is extremely reactive and equipped with a deadly pop suitable for taking off from large kickers, provided you are not scared too much. If the Drake team has an unrestrained passion for this board, there must be a reason.

If the Team is the Drake team's favorite as it is suitable for any terrain that can be ridden on a mountain, when it comes to choosing a board for freestyle performances that is always at the top, they have no doubts on picking the DF Team. The Classic camber ruled by the Performance core and glass fiber inserts for absolute responsiveness and stability, blend perfectly with the extremely fast Sintra 8000 base, resulting in a snowpark and halfpipe machine. The flex, accentuated by the carbon strip applied to the core, is perfect for transitions and jibs, if you've got some expertise in your legs. If you have not yet understood it, the DF Team is the perfect board for freestyle and its goal is only one: to make high performance its top priority.

DISCOVERING DRAKE TECHNOLOGIES

Let's start with a premise: for decades Drake has been one of the most respected snowboard companies in the world and to be always on the crest of the wave innovation is part of the game. Surely Drake has never stopped evolving its technological arsenal to offer cutting-edge snowboards. As for shapes for example: there is something for all tastes - directional twin for a shorter tail than the nose and an equal width on the whole length; twin tip for exactly the same length and width of nose and tail, with a perfectly centered set back; blunt shape, boards with a clean cut in the nose and the tail, shorter without affecting the points of support for a board that offers considerable control, light and fun. Even the profiles are among the most varied and allow Drake to meet the needs of every type of riding: classic camber for riders who like to feel a stable and secure feel, micro camber for the right mix of pop and reliability, flat camber for being able

to jib and slid anything, double camber which is nothing more than the combination of camber and rocker, perfect to ensure the right mix between float and flexibility, making the board extremely versatile, then we finally have the jib-oriented camber skate, with a flat area between the feet, perfect to run on the rails without giving up the pop thanks to the two camber just after the bindings. To obtain such versatile boards the core that characterizes them is indispensable and for this reason Drake uses the best woods in circulation, complete with cutting-edge technologies. From the super pop to the performer, passing by the lightweight pop and the refined premium pop, the characteristics of Drake boards can be summarized in a few common adjectives: resistant, powerful, solid.

Stunning in lightness and featuring a newer base even faster than the previous, the sintered base nanotech 9000. This board is precise in conduction and powerful in pop thanks to the thunder carbon stripes inserts. The positive RCR hybrid camber between the bindings and the rocker towards the tips transforms this model into a perfect freestyle board even in powder days. As versatile and ingenious as world famous Swiss multi-function knife, the Radical is able to adapt to your riding style, from the snowpark to the lines in powder without smudging.

Funky wanted to create a snowboard that could be agile, reactive and fast in edge-to-edge riding, able to maximize the performance of the rider. So thanks to the support of the Funky team, the Gun was brought to life. This is the perfect model for those riders who want to improve quickly in the park and on the slopes. The micro camber, mixed to the x-carbon cross under the bindings, make indeed this bomber ready for war. The base is obviously sintered, fast and durable, while the new puma wood core, which is made of poplar, paulownia and bamboo, guarantees ultra lightness and extra pop.

SPRAY

ROCKET

A trick-machine for creative riders, the new Spray has an explosive pop and a great grip. In this model Funky mixed the features of a skateboard, nimble and fun for rail and flat trick, together with a freestyle-all mountain snowboard's characteristics, in order to jib everywhere while racing down the slopes, and jumping like kangaroos in the the park, without compromising the perfect board control in conduction and in the ollies. Smart wood core and sintered base make this model fast and light. The Funky patented Carbon Sling technology gives the board an explosive pop and a perfect flex for stylish presses and tricks. The RFR flat camber and the squared shape together with shortened tips make the Spray the perfect street-park killer!

Louvre has the Gioconda, Funky has the Rocket. The main goal in creating this snowboard was to realize the ultimate all-mountain/freeride snowboard, and the result Funky achieved is the perfect mix between technology and quality. One of the most interesting aspects of this entirely made in Italy jewel is the topsheet, which is made of genuine Larch inlaid with anti-noise abs. This way it was possible to obtain a soft flex on the tip to gain a better floatation and easily face curves, while the wood top, from inserts to tail, increase the responsiveness of the board thanks to its ribs. Pillow lines, jumps, slashes and carves are the daily bread of this model. Great floation and super good grip on the beaten slopes.

ENDURO

SAFARI

Enduro is a freeride versatile splitboard with a directional shape and rocker nose and pintail. Radius is mid-sidecut, ensuring stability at high speed. Between nose and tail, the radius is connected with a reverse radius which ensures a proper tilting from edge to edge. The camber profile peaks under the front foot, with progressive rocker nose and light rocker tail. This profile guarantees control on a tough surface and at the same time ensures an easy control while on a powder. Design of the tip comes from a “fish” board but it is shortened for a better balance and manoeuvrability. The pintail ensures a swift control in tough terrain staying stable at a high speed. Enduro comes in all tree technologies: X, H and C.

Safari is a surf orientated splitboard without compromise. Its overall softer tuning guarantees a super “fish” feeling of movement both in open terrain and in the woods. The long nose guarantees float in powder. Don’t be confured by the lenght of this board. It is shorter but the waist width compensates for that so the surface is the same as with longer models. This splitboard offers plenty of buoyancy even for Hokkaido’s silky powder conditions and the pintail will hold you in the “saddle” through the quick fish turns even with a fully loaded backpack. Thtte board has a unique surf shape giving you optimal flex and torsion in relation to it’s extended nose. The tail is slightly softer for better pop and acceleration through turns. Camber under the front foot helps with control of the board and greatly improves the ease-of-use when skinning.

JONES: COMMITTED TO SUSTAINABILITY Jones is committed to being an outdoor industry leader in the fight against climate change. Building snowboards will always have an environmental footprint so we strive to minimize this footprint whenever possible by developing new eco-tech and supporting organizations that fight against climate change on the front lines. Jones takes these efforts seriously because they care about how our actions will affect the environment for future generations. If only snowboards grew on trees, born from simply seed, soil, water and sunshine, with a rogue root pushing up the sidewalk their only impact. Manufacturing snowboards, and all the gear we make, demands resources with a more complex footprint than an apple tree, but that doesn’t stop us from holistically tending to our production like an orchard. They started with unique ECO-performance designs, the seeds of our products, that utilize innovative sustainable materials whenever possible. Their partner factories are their rich soil, cutting edge facilities where our de-

signs come to life while providing steady employment and social stability to the workforce. The water and energy they use is never taken for granted and they strive to minimize our carbon footprint by analyzing the environmental impact at every stage of Jones products’ life cycle and investing in renewable energy. They make performance standard setting products that unlock limitless potential for human creativity and well being, while giving back to the global community through jobs and donations to environmental non-profits. No doubt there will be challenges as they work to make their garden ever greener, but they’re excited to share successes and failures publicly. They’ve got nothing to hide in their orchard. Every business decision they make is firmly rooted in their desire to grow the sweetest, most sustainably produced snowboards and backcountry gear they can.

BROADCAST

AFTERBLACK

The Broadcast is a versatile board, a true all mountain capable of adapting to any terrain and any situation. In shape and construction it is stable thanks to the ICG 10 Biax Glass inserts in carbon while the reactivity and resistance are guaranteed by the BAP wood with which it was built. Perfect to be used on the track but also in off-piste during the days in fresh snow, it is precise in the edge-to-edge and not too difficult to carry out despite its recognized structural rigidity. The riding is in fact softened by a well distributed flex along its entire length. As if that were not enough, it is also perfect in park because it performs well on landings, with an ideal pop to push in kickers.

Soon it has become the fav pick of the K2 team thanks to its technical characteristics, as the Afterblack is the top board of the freestyle collection. Shape designed for fast edge-to-edge, responsive flex and evenly distributed over the entire length of the board, it is a real and powerful weapon with a guaranteed feeling. The Sintered 4000 base turns out to be fast and resistant while DarkWeb carbon inserts make it an excellent snowboard capable of carving on the groomers. This board is equipped with the Combination Camber, which is a variant of the classic bridge that sees two rocker zones before the tip and tail bend, which allows a sure control to avoid edge clippings or on some sketchy landings from big jumps or from the rails.

K2 BOARD: THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE VARIOUS BASELINES What is a baseline? It is that line that the edge forms below the board, which can be different from brands and brands, and which K2 presents in different conformations. The difference makes each board unique, with specific technical features suitable for every type of riding and condition. To learn about the various types offered by K2, let's start with the Combination Camber, a profile that brings together two apparently different worlds: the pop provided by the camber, with the float and predictability of the rocker, available both on the twin version and on the directional version. Then we have the Directional Camber with the camber between the two bindings and a slight rocker at the nose and the tail. The boards with this type of profile benefit from all the pop and the riding that guarantees the camber, and they get significantly better during floatation, thanks to the raised tips.

The Directional Rocker on the other hand is an excellent all-mountain solution, ideal for any terrain and condition because it has a rocker that is more accentuated on the nose than the tail, which makes its riding better on the slope and its floating in fresh snow. The Twin Camber is the perfect classic for freestyle, rocker on the tips for superior pop and responsiveness guaranteed by the camber. The Freestyle Rocker was instead built flat camber to be a real lethal weapon during jibbing and jumping in park, the sections on nose and tail in fact make the board slightly softer without sacrificing its pop. For beginner riders, however, there's the Catch Free which by lifting the contact points on the snow helps to avoid unpleasant, and painful, counteredges.

KORUA: MADE FOR TURNING

Korua was born from a group of friends, who happened to be snowboard nerds in their 30’s, dreaming about a brand that would be relatable while still speaking to their individual riding levels and styles. Early on it was clear that the focus would have to be on making fun boards that turn exceptionally well and are easy to ride. They focused on wider shapes that would still allow easy edge-to-edge transitioning, letting you carve low on slopes and generate more float in powder. As a result, Korua boards offer more stability than a traditional snowboard, and are at their core, great all-round snowboards. While putting more emphasis on the shape itself, and offering a timeless product without graphics, they are able to be free of seasonal “collections”, which in turn keeps production more sustainable and lowers the customers urge to buy a new board every year. Since its inception, Korua has been about building progressive snowboards,

thinking outside of the box, and simply having fun snowboarding with our friends, all while capturing this true passion for snowboarding in their ongoing Yearning For Turning video series.

ODYSSEY

The Liberty - built by the Nidecker Factory in Rolle, Switzerland - was the first snowboard to shred the Mont Blanc from the top to the base in 1987. This reissue features the same shape from the popular Mellow model, with some technical upgrades to the construction and base material. The mix of a classic outline and high-tech materials delivers an unique surf feeling wherever you’re doing turns in powder, carving hard on groomed runs, or slashing late season slushy. Nidecker's Absornid topsheet cancel vibrations, while improving pop and responsiveness, while the surfy camrock together with the fish tail ensure optimal buyoancy, resulting in a laid back all terrains ride.

The Odyssey is designed for those women looking for a mellow, laid back freeride stick to ride powder, hardpack or late season slush. It totally blurs the line between the sensations you get from gliding along a wave or sliding down a mountain. Just like the Mellow for the men, the Odyssey is a perfectly balanced of a classic outline and high end materials, aimed to deliver a unique and amazing surf feeling. A full veneer wood top sheet made of ash absorbs vibrations at high speeds while improving responsiveness, while the Master Core - a perfect harmony of different wood densities - offers a lightweight, powerful and lively ride.

35 YEARS STRONG 35 years ago, Nidecker built its first snowboard (definitely the best decision they’ve ever made) and the brand hasn’t looked back since. Every year, they strive to push the limits of snowboard manufacturing technology, and once again for 2019/20 they come up with the goods. The Ultralight and the Megalight are two of their most iconic board models, redesigned for the 19/20 collection they’ll now only share the same names of their predecessors. From a technological standpoint, everything from the topsheets to the constructions have been entirely redesigned for the new models. Like avant-garde concept cars, built for below-freezing temperatures and mountainous terrain, they represent the future of snowboard construction. Another highlight is the Classics collection. Nidecker wanted to celebrate 35 years of creativity through three boards, each representing a unique chapter in the story of the brand. Whether you rode one of the original models back in the day, or you’re

just discovering them for the first time, it makes no difference. They’re bringing these iconic graphics back to life with the high-performance shapes and cutting-edge technology you’ve come to expect from every Nidecker snowboard you ride. They know how much fun it is to just go snowboarding the family-run group still take every chance to ride they can and it’s clear they still can’t get enough. It’s literally the driving force behind the company, their motivation to get out of bed in the morning and to make the best products possible, so that you have the best experience possible, every time you ride. Last but definitely not least, they proudly announced that starting this season they’ve not only teamed up with 1% For The Planet, along with Burton they’ve funded a new Europe-wide chapter for Protect Our Winters. Every time you buy one of their industry-leading snowboard products, you’ll also be stepping it up for the environment and helping protect the snow-covered alpine playgrounds that we hold so dear to our hearts.

RIDE SNOWBOARD LAMINATES

It is easy to find out if a snowboard has been designed and built to be a must-have seasonal item. For years Ride has developed a research and development plan that always manages to intercept the needs of its buyers, creating cutting-edge boards. It is impossible to rattle off all the technical details that make Ride boards competitive but at least the most important ones concerning laminates are here. CARBON ARRAY TM

This technology provides a power distribution capable of providing total control of the board over the entire stance. Carbon inserts positioned in the area of ​​the bindings receive stresses along the entire length, from all the different pressure angles. The rider's thrust is then channeled towards the opposite contact point, ensuring maximum control of the board.

SILENCER 5 TM

Specially designed urethane layers that perfect the response of the Carbon Array 5 by filtering the vibrations, ensure a super smooth but at the same time reactive feeling. LINER CARBON

Two strips of carbon added below the core provide super power for important and controlled ollies. IMPACT PLATES

Added under each binding to improve its compressive strength and prevent breakage of the board where unforeseen accidents are likely to occur, this technology is available in two levels, Single and Double. ALUMINUM CONSTRUCTION

Construction inspired by racing, which uses the Titanal Aluminum 5230-T6 to ensure better torsional stiffness, damping and control at high speeds.

From the years before Any Means until now, the Artifact has been a go-to for team riders filming video parts and local riders lapping park. Flat in the mid-section for balance on rails and on-edge performance between features.

When Rome introduced the National, it was the go-to choice for team riders, long-term SDS insiders and shop guys around the world. The flex pattern, Rome innovative Fusion camber, and the TurboRods create a quiver-killing performance profile for riding mountains with a strong freestyle flavor.

The best board to learn to ride on is built with the best camber design for helping kids learn how to shred for real. The raised contact points lead to a massive decrease in small riders catching the downhill edge for increased safety during the learning process.

SOMETHING YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT SIMS

Sims was founded in 1976 by Tom Sims, a true pioneer and world champion of skateboarding and snowboarding, with a simple goal in mind: create the world’s leading Surf, Skate and Snow brand. His extreme dedication and passion turned his visions into a successful reality. In 1963, Thirteen-year-old surfer, skateboarder and skier Tom Sims put together his passions and built the world’s first snowboard in 7th Grade Woodshop Class in Haddonfield, New Jersey. He calls it a "Skiboard". This board is currently on display at the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum in Vail, Colorado. Twelve years later, in 1975, Tom created the first anti-slip skateboards before the development of grip tape, using polyester surfboard resin and #60 silica/sand. Over 37 years later, this “new” technology is now more popular than ever, as an alternative to grip tape. In 1982, tired of having to use his skis in hard pack conditions, Tom decided to put metal edges on his snowboard and discovers a whole new world of control and response at ski areas and in competitions. The nineties have been interesting for Tom too. In 1993 the first modern freestyle board was designed and put on the market as Noah Salasnek Pro Model. One year later Sims released the first Woman Pro Model: the Shannon Dunn signature snowboard.

HAPPY PLACE

SPECTRUM

ATV

The Happy Place was conceived as an easy-to-ride, fun-frothing, playful park board for all riders. Its easy riding medium flex stems from a bi-axial fiberglass layup that’s enhanced by Sweet Spots carbon fiber stringers laid from the bindings to the contact points to enhance edge control and amplify ollies.

Redesigned with more pop and precision, the all-new Spectrum brings a fresh outlook to familiar terrain. Slash beefed up the board’s chassis by adding positive camber for more refined control and ollie juice.

This is the original Slash craft—a flyweight, reactive and mighty directional twin. It has a positive camber profile for stout ollies and pure carves. Its deep sidecut generates swift slashes and the subtle traction bump bites through rough snow.

Powder board developed on a surface distributed in width, so as to allow a limited length and consequent better maneuverability when it's get narrow and tough or in freestyle maneuvers while freeriding. It will adapt to any condition both on the track as well as in fresh snow, thanks to its very wide nose.

It can be considered an "all edge", a classic camber with tapered tips, it has a lot of effective edge for a powerful and precise carving even on the most compact and hard-packed snow. The mid-wide central width avoids snow contact even in the most extreme carves and supports large boots.

Matching freeride and freestyle is a very difficult task, but not for the CPTN Achab. Mainly it is a board for freeriding but can pull off tricks from the cliffs. With a natural setback stance and directional construction for optimal floatation and stability, it is also endowed with the typical freestyle agility.

The perfect park weapon, built to meet the needs of all freestylers. Soft and playful to the max, the West Limon is the perfect board to jib anything that stands in front of you. With a flat camber and a twin tip shape, it guarantees control and super fun.

Created in collaboration with The Helvetic Collective, a group of passionate Swiss photographers and influencers united by a common interest in outdoor sports and the Swiss Alps since 2015.

The Arvine is perfect for riders who prefer a directional all-mountain board. Excellent performance even in fresh snow, it is slightly stiffer than a classic women's board, for more adrenaline at high speed and control.

The all-mountain split par excellence, dedicated to the needs of female riders who are in search for backcountry adventures. Freeriding will have no more secrets because the West Lona has no compromises: multipurpose, performance and technically perfect for diving into the deepest powder.

GLOBE

GREATS UNINC

Truth be told, YES. has been itching to redesign the 20/20 soon after the dust settled from its release 3 years ago. Updates to the bottom contours have maintained the magical float that sets this board apart from everything else on the snow while improving the pop and landings off natural and man-made features.

YES.’s spirit run deep in surf and skate and the new Globe-designed board is a true expression of that. This special model takes highly adaptive and versatile shape of the Basic, and injects it with our Carbon PowerDrive core, an aggressive flex pattern and sintered true base.

An asymmetrical twin with asymflex, asymmetrical MidBite was added to the opposing side-cut specs. The end result is a high performance evolution to a board everyone has always loved, by delivering even better edge hold and greater stability on landings.

HYBRID

MASTER SERIES BY JACKPOT

THEY

The Hybrid has the shorter/wider surface-planing of the 420 and employs the YES.-exclusive Tapered UnderBite outline originally unveiled on the PYL. Floaty and maneuverable with confident edge hold and responsive snap out of turns, it's a perfect hybrid of these two boards.

This new Jackpot features a wider overall platform and new MidBite/sidecut ratios to suit the ever-advancing park and pipe environment. As the Jackpot is designed primarily as a park/resort board, a unique tip and tail profile employs a sharper transition off the contact points to a flatter kick.

Optimistic's benefits of the shape intact – wide platform, UnderBite outline and directional nose/tail volumes - with a more cost-effective material assembly, a less aggressive flex and a little rocker added to outer ends of the contact surface.

Reto Neiger is the creator and builder of Zen Snowboards. These all mountain, hybrid boards are at the cutting edge of custom shapes and can be shipped worldwide. No matter which version you choose, the flex and pop variations are always adapted to your riding style. Zen Snowboards are ultra-fast, all-mountain freestyle hybrids with custom tailored pop, flex and design. They are built for people who want the highest quality and most dependable board to explore their limits. These camber snowboards are ridden with a slightly larger than normal overall length in order to achieve optimal sliding and buoyancy properties in deep snow. Ultimately, the handling on the slopes remains incredibly reactive and agile. Why? The tail, for example, is longer than comparable snowboards. This results in a shorter effective edge length and makes the board far more responsive. It floats both fakie and regular in powder. Jump into Reto`s world right now: www.zensnow.com

CYPRESS Stiff and performing binding for those who want an immediate and efficient power transmission. With an optimal support, apt for speed on groomers and technical freeride. If you like performing and stiff bindings, that gives you support and a fast and efficint power transmission to your board, you can't not appreciate the Cypress. As with the Hemlock, they are optimally built, solid and with smart and easy adjustments. The footbeds efficiently dampen the impacts and erase chattering at high speed, being extremely comfortable. WE LIKE performing and technical bindings for all mountain and freeride. WE DISLIKE nothing. CO LO R AVA I L A B L E Black, Slate, Surplus

ARBOR

HEMLOCK Very comfortable binding with an optimal power transmission, most of all considering the binding flexibility as it gives you a good degree of freedom. Arbor bindings share a solid and rich in details design. They are solid and the adjustments are numerous and well thought for a precise fit adjustment. The co-stamped ankle strap is comfortable and efficiently hugs your instep, just like the toe strap that nicely copies most of the boots' toes. The power transmission is immediate and efficient, and the highback gives you an excellent rear support. WE LIKE solid and performing freestyle binding. WE DISLIKE a bit heavy.

2020 BENT METAL

JOINT

Bent Metal Joint is an exceptional all-mountain binding, comfortable and fairly stiff, an exceptional compromise for a do-it-all binding for an all-mountain or freestyle board. Compared to the Transfer, this Joint's fit feels like being softer with the same power input to your board. The main difference lays in the Drive Plate with a Boro insert and in the straps. In particular the Mobility Ankle strap offers a superior fit comfort, besides permitting a superior mobility still without lacking a solid grip. The power input to your board is direct and efficient, making it an optimal binding for both freestyle and all mountain. WE LIKE High comfort and optimal power transmission. WE DISLIKE nothing.

2020 BURTON

M A L AV I TA R E : F L E X The Malavita Re: Flex is one of the favorite models of the Burton team riders, for its balanced mix of performance, comfort, fit and lightness, and our tests have said nothing more than underlining it. The Malavita are comfortable, wrap the boot well - even not Burton - and thanks to the Re: Flex FullBED Cushioning System, the vibrations are almost canceled and the impacts are very well absorbed. The shell has medium rigidity, which makes these bindings perfect for a park board, a freeride not particularly challenging or an all-mountain board for surfing on groomers. WE LIKE optimal fit and superior comfort. WE DISLIKE

forward lean adjustment not the most

comfortable.

CO LO R AVA I L A B L E Brackish, Dark Gray, Frost, Spicy Salmon

BURTON

S T E P-O N

The Step-On has been the real technological revolution in terms of snowboard bindings. Two years after their birth, the Step Ons are still the best fast system on the market. The Step-On is convenient, and all the criticisms from detractors and purists of the classic bindings are just useless. Its enviroment is the all mountain and freeride, where speed of engagement and control are the two main topics. For obvious reasons the system is a bit stiff, so if you are a jibber who wants to surf with a particularly loose foot, this is not your best pick. Compared to the first version, small defects and loose plays have been fixed, and now they are ready for an even wider audience. WE LIKE the best fast system on the market. WE DISLIKE very stiff.

RELOAD Drake has decades of experience building bindings; the Reload, a freestyle top model, is a solid, comfortable and performing binding, which guarantees a wide degree of mobility. The first thing you notice when you strap in the Reload is comfort: the feeling is almost like not having them at all. The new molded Lil Strap is much thinner than the previous GT but equally comfortable and above all guarantees an optimal grip on the boot. The new MG12 magnesium ratchets are very fast and precise, while the Spade Highback ensures good mobility without lacking back support. WE LIKE comfortable and reliable. WE DISLIKE a little heavy.

2020 FLOW

FUSE

The Flow system is comfortable and really functional. Still being a classic binding, the singular strap and the collapsing highback system with just one simple move make it the more practical option to a classic binding. The Fuse is light, comfortable and performing. Without a shadow of a doubt, the singular strap does manage to tighten any kind of boot correctly. Moreover, the feeling you get from the one-strap solution is to get even more contact with your board. If you really want to find a flaw, we have to admit that the absence of a stiff heel cup makes you feel like you're missing some support from the heel zone, but this doesn't really diminish its performances. WE LIKE perfect fit and input transmission. WE DISLIKE you'll be missing the heel cup a bit. CO LO R AVA I L A B L E Black, White

SELECT We've heard someone say 'How does this Skatetech work? It doesn't really get a grip on me.' Well, literally everyone changed his mind right from the first ride. The Select is one of the models in which you appreciate that technology the most. The Select is really a nice binding. Solid, super comfy, kind of rigid but still comfortable. The Skate Tech is a true revolution and, despite this technology is not brand new, never let you down. The pivot on which the basepad is hinged provides a subtle movement but nevertheless efficient. You control it all without losing any power of your impulse to the board. The dampening is perfect too. WE LIKE Perfect all-mountain binding.

LINEUP If you want your bindings to be essential and you like a surf feel, then the Lineup is what you've been searching for. With all the needed support, it still allows you a great freedom of movement for jibbing and surf style. Just like the Formula, the Lineup is very essential and with no frills too. Differently to the Formula though, this binding is much softer and more tweakable, being ideal for those who spend entire days on the jib line or those who want to be at ease just turning on groomers like being on a beach break in Portugal. The Opti highback in urethane allows you a greater freedom of movement for more twisted grabs and unlimited presses. WE LIKE essential and performing in jibbing.

FORMULA At first glance it seems to be a pretty basic binding, while it's a performing and without any frills all-mountain device, that offers high performances on any terrain. Lightweight and with no frills, this Formula presents itself as a pretty hardcore binding. But if you really dig deep, you'll find and love all those solutions that make this binding perfect for any kind of rider. You can adjust the forward lean with two hidden levers positioned on the sides for example, a thing that avoids the classic rear pad's break. Moreover, the straps are comfortable and its stiffness is medium, ideal for both park riding and all mountain. WE LIKE simple and functional . WE DISLIKE toe strap hole very big for some boots.

TEAM PRO Designed with the help from Nitro international riders, the Team Pro is a technical binding designed for those who are in need of support, feeling and immediate input transmission to the board. The team pro is nicely stiff, but it also offers a comfort way above the average. If you are park rats who like jibbing and park lapses or groomers, Nitro has something else for you in their range. But if you are in search for highest performances without any compromises, together with a perferct fit with any kind of boot, there you go – the Team Pro is one of those picks you are destined to take.

2020 ROME

BL ACK L ABEL The new Black Label is a wrap-up of technology and performance that has left no doubt in any tester: all-mountain comfort and performances of a high degree for the new top of the line by Rome. Last December presentation already left us very much interested, and our test just confirmed our first thoughts. The Black Label is a medium stiff binding, comfortable way more than the average. The new co-printed highback in nylon and thermoplastic glass fiber provides support in the lower part and leave freedom of movement in the upper zone, guaranteeing an ever-present and exceptional control.

SLAB ONE The new SP Slab introduces an important innovazione which solves the most common problem of bindings with rear entry, thanks to a aluminum heelcup co-printed in the highback. Historically SP has always been against the rapid entry bindings as the solution only for all mountain and freeride, with a team of riders who showed the opposite. This year innovation, consisting in a co-printed flippable heelcup, fixes that little flaw that is common among all the bindings of this kind – that is the lack of heel support. Only one downside: the adjustments are not fast, especially of the highback, that needs a bit of work. WE LIKE rapid, performing, fantastic support. WE DISLIKE highback is difficult to adjust.

The feel you get once you strap in the Strata is something really different from any other binding. Forget chattering or any vibrations – zero at any speed. And the comfort is possibly perfect. Plus you feel like having the total control of your board as if it were straight under your boots. The support is amazing, and this makes it ideal for all terrains.

DRAKE BINDINGS: LET'S START FROM THE BASE

To get good bindings Drake started from a primary concept and a definite goal: to create a base that can guarantee a perfect fit - innovation after innovation, going from the original Delta form to the more recent Omnichrom Light. The first has got pure features: fully adjustable, it is formed by a pre-curved aluminum heel connected directly with a nylon and fiberglass base that creates a bomb-proof system. The elasticity of the nylon and the reactivity of the metal in fact, give a soft fit especially suitable for riders who have just started to love snowboarding. An evolution of the Delta, the Delta Light includes all the main features of its older sister, it has also been reinforced to increase its responsiveness and sensitivity on the board, guaranteeing extreme lightness as a whole. Customizable, versatile and performing, it is suitable for any type of condition and terrain. In the Drake line we find then the Light Saber, a base to which the points of contact have

been reduced to a minimum giving an absolutely better feeling to the board. There are three steps of adjustments: three different adjustable positions with two safety levers integrated in the base panel. It gives the possibility to adjust the spoiler and the straps independently for a total of thirteen combinations to adjust to your favourite riding style. Do you think Drake tech ended right here? Of course not, because evolution after evolution they've come down to the Omnichrom Light, born on the basis of the previous Omnichrom but all in all improved after a strict diet. Top performance and a rear bow characterized by greater lightness of the bridge which ensures reactivity, increasing flexibility and significantly reducing weight.

SHOPS 1ST TRY The go-to event for all snowboard retailers!

Shops 1ST Try is by now the most important snowboard retail event in Europe. The winning formula of snowboard on-snow demo plus highlight exhibition will reach its 11th round in 2020. From January 19 to 21, 2020, more than 250 shops from all over Europe are expected to gather in Alpbach to check out next year’s boards, bindings, boots, goggles, outerwear, protection gear, and other snowboard relevant accessories. Last year’s edition showed a record of more than 90 brands that the retailers could test, meet the sales and marketing teams and take a look at. The event is based on the initiative of leading snowboard brands and the B2B magazine boardsport SOURCE. Munich based company munchie Konsilium - one of the leading agencies in actionsports - is heading the organization of the venue. The concept of a high-quality event consisting of testing, highlight exhibition and joint dinner as well as the 100% focus on retailers has proven its worth over the years. The organizers will remain true to these values and also for 2020 will create a coherent and, above all, useful event for snowboard retailers. The strongest presences are recorded from Germany and Austria followed by Switzerland, Poland, Italy, Benelux, Great Britain, Czech, Norway, Finland, Russia and others, but also overeseas retailers are coming to visit the Shop 1ST try year after year. The benefits for the retailers are many: lift pass, meals and general program are free of charge for two people each retailer, then with a single trip you can test, see and compare more than 90 brands at the same time. Wherever you’re coming from, you’re close from the freeway and from the nearest airports (Munich or Innsbruck). You can easily socialize and get to know the people behind the brands and exchange with other shops. With three full days you can choose to stay for the whole time or pick a single day, plus it’s happening on late January so you can test before placing orders or decide which brands carry in your shop for the next season. Finally, it’s a test for shops only but also a real B2B event, so you can try the gear and talk about business in the same venue and in a totally relaxed environment,

miles away from the huge and crowded classic trade show formula, surrounded by the beautiful landscape of the Austrian Alps. The Sequence Mag tipp for retailers: Register as soon as possible because only if you register in advance you can take part and spots are limited! Find out more on www.shops-1st-try-com .

The adjustments of the base and the toe straps, without tools, work together with the ankle straps to allow an ideal power transfer and a practically perfect fit. TRIPOD: One way to rethink the traditional base plate design of the bindings, the Tripod was designed to act as a biomechanically efficient frame as possible. It has inserts for a unique power transmission, which allows the foot a natural flexion.

A-LINE:

For women's bindings, K2 has designed a frame set right on the female foot, made in a single piece with polycarbonate, light and resistant. Comfortable fit and high performance even for the riders. Moving on to spoilers, K2 created the Gap Eraser which eliminates the distance between heelcup, boot and highback, creating a solid constraint that translates into absolute control. Tweakback instead uses urethane which makes the spoiler flexible, great for creative grap and tweak. The All Terrain is the most resistant model to the temperature changes that can be encountered during the winter while the Eclipse Highback has been specially designed for maximum rider comfort. Last but not least, the K2 bindings can be adjusted completely without tools!

For versatile freestyle use, the Revolt guarantees maneuverability, support and comfort in a single binding. The Edge Chassis System base made with an aerospace aluminum construction, ensures easy and endless adjustments for optimal precision, without sacrificing comfort.

Enriched with soft and precise Linkage ratchets, it is durable and performs well even after it has been mistreated throughout the winter.

SMOOTHER RADIUS

Technology, high grade manufacturing and different thinking have always been the pillars of Austrian Company SP United. Born in 1987, they immediately started developing and manufaturing their own bindings, and 22 years later they still do that in the same way, standing behind their patented Fastec System. In 2019 a new technology has been released to improve it further and raise strenght, stiffness and consequently control and power transmission to the board. The technology is enclosed in the all new highback, equipped in the top of the range Mountain and Slab.One models. A New aluminum heelcup is co-molded in the lower part of the Nylon highback, reducing flex and torsion in the heel area. This is a real innovation for the rear entry binding category, whose major problem was the low rate heel support in the lower part caused by the missing heelcup. Moreover, a newly designed radius in the lower side of the highback allows a easier access to the binding. Finally the overall thickness of the upper part has been decreased to improve the flex and the new Highback pad improves grip and durability.

Nicolas Müller's pro model gets a high rating right from its aesthetic quality. Its skate shoe line together with the Tie Dye makes it particularly attracting. But this boot is not just a beauty. Nico wanted his pro model to be responsive but able to get you that surf feel he loves so much. In fact, the Mullair is responsive without being a plaster.

PHOTON STEP ON The range of boots compatible with the Step On system widens and the Photon is reconfirmed as a valid and perfectly balanced interface for all mountain and freeride. With its characteristic BOA band applied to the ankle, the Photon might be disliked by someone due to the unusual aesthetics, but once worn, strap in (or step on in this case) to the bindings and tightened with a simple turn of the wheel, you will understand how good the whole system is. The Photon is a boot suitable for all mountain and freeride, a little less for park riding due to stiffness, but apart from that it is easy to wear and quick to close like a ski boot.

S WAT H S T E P O N The second generation of Step On includes many more boot models to choose from and this Swath is one of them. Aesthetically beautiful, it is softer than the Photon. Needless to deny that this Swath appeals for the absence of the integrated ankle strap, this was the first feedback we collected when we opened the box and shown it to the testers. But apart from that, the lack of the strap makes the whole system a little softer and the freedom of movement increases to be comparable to that of a medium-hard boot from other brands on the market. But the enormous ease of connection remains, which is no small thing! WE LIKE Extremely fast lacing, medium flex. WE DISLIKE nothing. CO LO R AVA I L A B L E Black

WORLD ROOKIE TOUR

WORLD ROOKIE TOUR 2019.20 THE FUTURE STARTS NOW! The largest tour in the world for young snowboarders! If your dream is to become a professional snowboarder, the future starts with the World Rookie Tour! The World Rookie Tour announces a new season of events, with stops in every part of the globe, in search of the future stars of world snowboarding. To tell the truth the season has officially begun this summer with an event at Les2Alpes and two events in New Zealand, but now the tour lands in Europe and makes a stop in some of the most renowned resorts in the world such as the Skyline Park in Innsbruck, Austria, for then going back over the other half the planet to stop at Nekoma and Taksu in Japan, and then again fly over to the USA, in Mammouth, Vail and Keystone. In Livigno, at the Mottolino Snowpark, the Black Yeti will blow out the candles to celebrate the 15th edition of the oldest stop of the entire tour. Furthermore, two new European resorts will join the Black Yeti and will be Ruka, Finland and Madonna di Campiglio, Italy. The legendary World Rookie Finals instead will take place for the fourth consecutive year at Kitzsteinhorn - Zell am See-Kaprun, in Austria. BUT WHAT IS THE WORLD ROOKIE TOUR?

It is nothing less than the largest tour in the world for young snowboarders; not only a sport competition, but also a personal growth and own career development. It is a fantastic opportunity for growth and an unforgettable life experience thanks to the many side activities, such as video shootings and photo shoots, meetings with international team managers, workshops and parties! At the end of the tour, the winner of the World Rookie Finals will receive the title of World Rookie Champion and will have the chance of becoming a real professional: during the last edition, for example, all the category winners were able to participate in the legendary Audi Nines, and have earned a spot on the FIS World Cup Tour.

LACING K2 BOOTS: AN EVER-CHANGING WORLD The technology used by K2 designers is constantly evolving, and in fact there are many innovations for the 2020 season. There's the new K2 boot closing systems, always faster and more comfortable, for a complete wrapping and support of the foot. Absolute novelty is the innovative Conda formula, a special internal lacing complex specifically designed for K2, which uses a urethane closure that perfectly wraps the rider's ankle, creating maximum possible heel hold. Comfort and support have never been so immediate and safe throughout the riding day. Then there's the traditional Boa Conda closure system, which offers a precise fit to the millimeter and superior comfort. The Mobility Conda series has a narrower lace closure that allows greater medial mobility without sacrificing the fundamental hold in the heel area.

REMOVABLE WIRING

K2 offers the possibility to choose the perfect fit with the new removable system that hooks and locks onto the shell, guaranteeing the possibility of choosing the amount of thread to use and ensures extreme precision in fit. We find it in the Taro Tamai Snowsurfer and TT Women models. BOUNDARY/KINSLEY ZONAL LACING

This is a new version of the traditional Boa system, which allows to lighten the upper and lower areas of the boot in a totally innovative and independent way. Simplifying, this new system follows a spiral path that concentrates the power of the Boa coil in the most important points of the boot, for a closure that has never been so perfect.

From year to year the changes they bring to snowboard boots have conquered even the most skeptical riders. Among the most appreciated technologies we have the CAB3 and its evolution, the CAB5, systems that allow to lock the ankle in the most complete possible way, ensuring an optimal fit. Then there are three different types of inner shoe: the TF1, TF2 and TF3, all characterized by a Thermo Fit padding that ensures comfort and tightness. Flex Window and Thermo Welded technologies are fundamental. The first ensures a progressive flexion for a perfect balance between comfort and mobility of the foot while the second, characterized by heat-sealed gaskets, is particularly important in the ankle area as it guarantees a progressive support

from the heel to the calf, for an upper support. Finally, the Heel Bumper, built on the outside of the boot, is specially designed to avoid abrasions, making the boot extremely durable over time. Then there's the Spin Lace, that is the polyethylene lace used in the closure of the boots which gives a fast and precise response when it is put in tension, making the connection system 25% faster than any other reel-closing system. Finally, Superlace Closure System technology allows you to close the boot in two different areas, so you can decide the right feeling in each part. That all means a superior comfort and fit throughout the day.

LASSO

INSANO

Equipped with an Intuition Support Foam inner boot that provides superior comfort to the foot while avoiding excessive sweating during the day, the Lasso is a boot from which high performance can be obtained at the expense of its light weight. The revolutionary Michelin Summit sole guarantees the necessary traction both in the snow and in the hull of the binding, for a constant and long-lasting grip, even after a thousand days of riding. The convenient and fast H3 BOA Coiler closure system also offers a perfect fit thanks to the use of the Tongue Tied BOA that keeps the heel still in position by acting on the tongue, and the BOA Coiler that adjusts the hull's fit. The result is maximized table control and absolute support.

If you are looking for a highly responsive boot, the Insano is the one for you. It is absolutely comfortable thanks to a fast and convenient connection system guaranteed by the H3 BOA Focus system with three different closures: the BOA Focus regulates the two areas of the upper independently while the Closer Lace Guide system ensures that the tension distribution of all the boot is dispersed obtaining a superior comfort. It is also equipped with the Michelin Peak Outsole sole for optimal traction and grip and equipped with a shock absorber on the heel that helps in landings, it is the stiffest boot in the entire Ride Snowboard collection and therefore suitable for all those riders that prefer high performance and precise answers.

RIDE AND MICHELIN TECHNICAL SOLES TECHNOLOGY

What makes Ride boots reliable and ensures extremely advanced performance? In addition to the technological arsenal and the premium materials used in their construction, what makes them so powerful is the use of the special Michelin Technical Soles, developed starting from the Michelin mountain bike tire. This sole has a differentiated tessellation that greatly improves traction, stability and grip in all snow conditions. The collaboration between Ride Snowboard and Michelin from year to year has been guaranteed by an ever increasing and constant evolution, up to today as there are three different types of soles, each characterized by specific details, within the boot Ride line. These are the Michelin Summit, the Michelin Peak Sole and the Michelin Fiberlite.

MICHELIN SUMMIT: this sole is a resistant mixture of Michelin rubber and phylon, which creates a sole with high performance but is still super light. MICHELIN PEAK SOLE: this sole is a durable blend of Michelin Premium WIC and OC compounds, combined with a phylon midsole that makes the sole absolutely performing, with revolutionary winter traction. MICHELIN FIBERLITE: this sole is characterized by light and WIC and OC rubber compounds with mesh support and a SLIME + midsole which guarantees optimal reactivity. Stability and durability, but also high traction on all types of snow, from powder snow to ice: these are the characteristics that Ride and Michelin soles provide you.

VANS, BOOTS BUILT TO PROGRESS

"We know where we are going, just because we know where we come from." For over 20 years, Vans Snow has stood for one thing: building products in the best possible way to help riders find their own style. Thanks to their rich heritage and their continuous research and innovation, their boots are able to offer a completely customizable interface, leaving freedom of choice as for fit, flex and sensitivity. This winter Vans collaborated with their Team of riders to create the best possible line that can meet all their needs. The result is comfortable boots with unconventional performance. All boots are equipped with an improved thermal seal layer that provides a 360° wrapping of the toecap and between the sole and the lining. This essential layer keeps the heat inside and leaves out the cold, ensuring all-day comfort. And for this season, the collaboration with The North Face, the outdoor innovators, is back again, incorporating the FlashDry

fabric technology into the boots, designed to act as a second skin, which repels moisture on the surface helping to provide a rapid drying performance. New for 2019/20 is the collaboration with Smartwool Merino wool experts that led to the creation of a brand new V2 UltraCush lining resistant to odors and humidity, able to make you feel at ease even in the deepest powder. Merino wool is warm yet breathable, to maintain a dry and thermoregulated microclimate inside the boot.

SIX EIGHT SIX SEASON TWO THOUSAND TWENTY HIGHLIGHTS

The Indepedendent California based company has always been a step ahead when it comes to talking about style and progressive outerwear at the rigth price!

Many highlights coming from the 686 camp for the 2020 season. The Indepedendent California based company has always been a step ahead when it comes to talking about style and progressive outerwear at the rigth price, and in 2020 Mike West firm is reaching the top with several collaborations and new fabrics. Let’s start with technology: the unique Hydrastash Sync jacket, the only shell with an integrated hydratation sysyem hidden in the waist and consicutively not compromising the freedom of movement, has been further improved with a Gore-Tex 2 Layer fabric for unmatchable waterproofing and brethability. The gloves collection has been improved and now you can choose between four model for men and four for women, featuring premium materials like Gore-Tex, InfiDRY and Merino wool lining, and technologies such as the Soundtouch Touchscreen Technology and Movement Fit Hand Articulation. Now let’s talk about collaborations: the first one is curated by longtime Pro Victor Daviet, and sees 686 to collaborate with Salomon: The Red Dazed colorway is the matching point between the Hydrastash Sync Jacket and Salomon Launch Boots. Another interesting collaboration happened with the iconic streetwear

brand The Hundrends: A Gore-Tex Anorak in bright blue and yellow features the famous bomb logo on the belly pocket. Still talking about collab, the one that went underway with the legendary Metal band Slayer is one of a kind: the capsule includes a lightweight jacket, a hoody, mitts, balaclava, facemask and beanie, all of ‘em engraved with the infamous band red script. Further collabs took shape with headwear company Coal and P-Rod clothing and skateboard brand Primitive: also here each of them consists in a capsule collection featuring jackets, mitts and headwear. Last but not least, let’s talk about the last huge recruitement move of the last season: snowboard legend Gigi Ruf joined the 686 pro team, bringing his own unique approach and enforcing the already strong global 686 crew including Forest Bailey, Sammy Luebke, Phil Jacques, Victor Daviet, Matt Belzile and others. “I am honored to be offered a place on the 686 Team. With an independently owned venue, the welcome feels warm. I have always admired 686 for having their foot in the door for role models and talents to enter and getting to work on what makes our world different.” Gigi commented.

FLACHAUWINKL - AUSTRIA

The Shuttleberg in Flachauwinkl-Kleinarl is the total winter sports park. Here everyone gets their money’s worth, and numerous offers based on freestyle and the family come first. Located directly by the Tauernautobahn, the winter sports paradise is quick to reach. On the Shuttleberg Flachauwinkl – Kleinarl every cableway has at least two runs, two variant groomed pistes, freeride slopes, besides the permanent and always excellently maintained facilities like the timed piste, the speed course,the family run and the new cross run. The Absolut Park, at 1.5 km is the largest snowparks in the Alps, has superb freestyle facilities and with the kickerline, the railline, a halfpipe, a superpipe and the special jib park offers a set-up that is unique in Europe. A special section of the Absolut Park is the Burton The Stash Park, one of only five snowparks worldwide which follow the environmental trend.The Absolut Park is divided into seven sections: The Kicker line: five kickers in a row offer you maximum airtime at an international top level. This is where the Spring Battle, Austria’s most famous on-mountain snowboard and freeski contest, takes place. The Rail Yard: here you will find all kinds of rails and jib obstacles, always new and creatively arranged: S-Rail, Barrel-Rail, Elbow-Rail, Kinked-Rail, Double Kinked-Rail, Straight Rails,... Beginner/Medium line: the ideal place to work on your skills, practice new tricks and prepare for the bigger obstacles: The Beginner/Medium Line starts at the top station of the Absolut Shuttle and ends

224

at the bottom station of the Powder Shuttle. Rail/Halfpipe Line: the Rail/Halfpipe Line is equipped with many different rails and ends in a funny, 100 meter long halfpipe with four meter high walls. It is ideal if you want to learn how to ride a pipe and try your first tricks. Jib Park: in the lower part of the Absolut Park, directly in front of Chill House, you will find the ultimate playground for all jibbers: The Jib Park offers you many rails and boxes, which are easy and fun to ride. All shredders, regardless of their level, will have fun here. Cross Run: both beginners and advanced can ride the Cross Run, a top-maintained ski and boardercross course, without any problems — two separate starts for different levels to ensure this. It's best to race through together with your buddies! The Stash: the Stash Park does not offer you perfectly groomed slopes, but instead, you can get creative. There are obstacles made of wood and snow integrated into the natural terrain, and you can usually ride them in several ways. The area offers a lot of additional possibilities for natural jibs and powder runs. Chill House: the Chill House below the Jib Park is the freestyle scene’s meeting point. The light-flooded, two-storey building is equipped with a boulder wall and several chill-out areas where you can watch freeski and snowboard videos. Since last winter season, the Chill House is also pleasing to the eye: Inspiring paintings, photos and drawings from artists in the boardsport and freeski scene are shown on a regular basis. The highlight, however, is the skate mini ramp — the first of its kind on a mountain worldwide.

The resort offers 142 kilometers of perfectly groomed slopes and 58 state of the art lift and cable car systems. Also, there´s a 100% snow guarantee from December to April, which ensures unlimited winter fun! When talking about fun, the Harakiri has to be mentioned. Austria’s steepest slope adventure on Action Mountain Penken in Mayrhofen is the most demanding slope in the Zillertal. For the first few turns, most skiers are still feeling brave so they try to go fast. But they quickly realize that in order to tackle the legendary Piste 34, they will need to slow down and be a lot more cautious. This is definitely not your average descent. It’s the Harakiri– and it demands respect. With a downhill gradient of up to 78 percent, it’s for experts only, and for most of them, it’s the highlight of their day, if not of their entire winter holiday. Whoever prefers the less demanding type of winter fun, is perfectly right at one of the Fun Rides in Mayrhofen! There, maximum snow fun is guaranteed without taking any risk at all. Whether you're a freestyle beginner or a pro, you will find just the right obstacles at the Penken Park.

ALPE DI SIUSI - TRENTINO ALTO ADIGE - ITALY

The Alpe di Siusi plateau in the heart of the Dolomites is not only a natural beauty from a landscape point of view. At an hour's drive south of the Brenner Pass, at the foot of the Sciliar, the Snowpark Seiser Alm is a freestyle paradise that extends over the plateau and it is a spot of absolute importance not only on the southern slope of the Alps, but throughout Europe. It is no coincidence that every year the snowpark on the Alpe di Siusi is among the 10 best freestyle destinations in Europe. Also, in South Tyrol the alpine lifestyle meets the relaxed Mediterranean approach. At the Alpe di Siusi you do not rely only on the beauty of the landscape, the friendly mentality of the local population and the attractions of the region, where winter tourism started over 120 years ago. F-Tech shapers and designers improve the level of the park year by year, combining creativity and constructive precision of the features. This year the park will be managed by a new shaper crew with great experience and expertise. The team will be expanded to maintain the quality of the park throughout the season and create new creative lines in the jibline, in addition to a real slopestyle course at Olympic level. The F-Tech guys are so meticulous that, during the season, depending on the snow conditions, they are able to completely rebuild and redesign the features. The Seiser Alm snowpark is a premium fun freestyle playground in terms of size: more than 70 features are spread over an area of ​​more than 1.5 km, divided into two sections. Shapers are free to realize their concepts and ideas, normally leading to new creative lines and professional training conditions of the highest level. The big kickers of the pro line are always in perfect con-

dition and attract not only the best Italian freestylers like Simon Gruber and Max Zebe, but also important international names in its ideal set-up. It is no coincidence that for several years the Italian national freestyle team has been based at the Alpe di Siusi. However, F-Tech headmaster for Johannes Gögele does not only deal with professionals: on the easy and medium line, placed in the upper part of the park, the little ones and the less experienced can improve their skills. A special attraction is the Woodline, made entirely with wooden structures. For the 2020 season there will be several upgrades, which will make the park area even more attractive and fun. Beginner or professional, at Seiser Alm snowpark everyone has their value. When at sunset the rocky massifs of the Dolomites and the park features, designed and built with architectural precision, immerse themselves in the golden light, it's time for the legendary sunset sessions of the Snowpark Seiser Alm, which the main European media such as Sequence, Pleasure and Method Mag often have framed and made famous through awesome pictures and videos.

ALTA BADIA - TRENTINO ALTO ADIGE - ITALY

Alta Badia is one of the most astonishing valleys of the Italian Alps and offers 130 kilometers of slopes for all skills. Amazing mountain towns, surrounded by majestic peaks let you dive into the alpine living and enjoy the exquisite local cuisine. The Dolomites strongly shape the impressive landscape of South Tyrol and these massive summits which surround the Snowpark Alta Badia form a uniquely beautiful alpine setting. In the winter of 2009, the first creative lines were established right next to the Ciampai slope and they marked the base for one of the best and one of the biggest snowparks in the Dolomites. Year after year the area was expanded, the lines were defined according to different skill levels and thus, not an inch of the new freestyle paradise at the heart of the Dolomites was left unused. Not only big specials and pros belonged to the snow park: countless events for the local scene and youngsters became part of the last decade at Snowpark Alta Badia. The upcoming season 2019/20 has a wide range of shred possibilities in store for everyone: About 40 freshly polished rails, boxes, jibs and jumps are waiting to be built into the snow by the shape crew. To be more precise, there will be a beginner area for all youngsters and rookie riders in which a vast variety of butter boxes forms a solid basis for the first slides. Several small jumps with table lengths of up to 4 meters will give all riders the opportunity to experience what a little airtime

232

feels like. The medium area of the Snowpark Alta Badia offers exciting jibs, such as different tubes, boxes and rails. All those who prefer to go crazy on kickers and want to learn new tricks will get satisfied too, as there is a medium kicker line right next to the jib line. In order to find out which line feels best, all riders are well advised to plan ahead, because the sheer amount of all these features makes it easy to lose track of time. The advanced line will mainly stand out from the rest of the park due to its fantastic kicker line that will send all advanced riders up high, giving them enough airtime to face the next challenges on their personal trick lists. If that’s not enough, Alta Badia offers two more highlights: The Funslope Biok and the Funcross La Para. The Funslope Biok (named after its location right at the lift “Biok”) provides every wintersports enthusiast with even more fun and action. Whether it’s a fun run over snow waves, a brave little jump or a run through magical snow houses - at a length of almost one kilometer, skiers as well as snowboarders of every age will have a fun time. At the new Funcross La Para everyone gets the opportunity to experience their very own adrenaline rush! Alta Badia’s Funcross, right next to the Funslope Biok, offers two parts which will give you a race experience that almost feels like taking part in a BoarderX Race.

PILA - VALLE D'AOSTA - ITALY

Pila Snowland is getting ready to open the winter season with many new features starting from the upgrading of one of the most popular snowparks in Italy, the Areaeffe. A powder paradise, this year Pila will begin the final design of the new cable car that will connect Aosta to the Platta de Grevon. The opening of winter in Pila is scheduled for November 30. Pila is the closest ski resort to Aosta and every year it hosts about half a million snowboarders and skiers who choose the "Snowland" as a destination for their winter holidays or for a short riding mission in front of the highest peaks in Italy, from the Mont Blanc to the Gran Paradiso. Pila is a fantastic destination for freestyle and freeride enthusiasts, connected directly to Aosta, as there are only 18 minutes separating the "white balcony" of Aosta, located at 1800m from the region capital, where you can easily park your car and reach the mountains with your snowboard in hand and the boots on your feet. With tens of kilometers of wide snow-covered and perfectly groomed slopes, Pila is really the ideal place for all levels, from beginners to experts, as there is something always for everyone. The complete map of the plants is published on the page: www.pila.it/pila/ comprensorio/skirama Pila Snowland has prepared the slopes for the winter with various improvements and has opened the doors to a new project, which will see the connection of Pila with the Platta de Grevon

234

(2800 m) through a new gondola with two intermediate stations. The black Platta de Grevon slope (n.27) is not beaten immediately after the snowfalls, so that it can keep the powder soft for at least 24 hours, and you can powder riding from Aosta up to the top of Couis 1, for then descend along more than 500 meters in altitude before meeting the groomed slopes. For those who are in need of adrenaline there is much more: the Areaeffe snowpark is a 20,000-square-meter freestyle arena served by the Grand Grimod four-seat chairlift with different levels of difficulty. From beginners to pros, the Areaeffe is designed for training while having fun for both freeskiers and snowboarders, with urban taste jibbing lines and jumps of various sizes shaped by the historical Valdostan riders Ivo Letey and Alessio Bazzana. To mark on the agenda is the end-of-season gathering, the Red Neck Party which shut down the season with the spirit of those who have made snowboarding their way of life, and the opening of a new Fun Slope to enhance the freestyle area. Another peculiarity of the town of Pila Snowland is the strategic layout of its hospitality offer: positioned directly on the slopes, it is reachable by foot almost from anywhere. The Aosta Valley gastronomic tradition is the best prize after spending a day in the cold: once in front of a polenta with game, the Fontina DOP and a small glass of genepy, there is nothing better.

There is a chalet which has been confirmed for the third consecutive year as a landmark of the Italian and European snowboard scene. For those interested in experiencing amazing adventures in the Sestierre area, we at Sequence have no doubts... the Weal Chalet. Friendistribution has been distributing snowboard gear since 1999, their brands are ThirtyTwo, Rome Snowboards, Slash and Electric. When they came back to the Piedmontese mountains, where the company was born, many shop owners and customers began to ask for help to organize snowboard weeks, personalized tests, freeride trips and so on. It was therefore a natural step for them to officially enter the world of tourism creating Weal Chalets. This chalet is not just a normal place to stay, it has a very "snowboard" vibe, a dedicated demo room where the boards, bindings, boots and goggles of the brands distributed by Friendistribution are available to all customers (ThirtyTwo, Rome, Slash and Electric). Furthermore, all the local snowboard scene was involved, from the local shop to the guides, to the coaches, as it turned into a meeting point for all the local riders and those who visit Sestriere even for just a few days: all the gear in the demo room, together with local experts, has become a valuable reference point for all those who want to approach and be part of the wonderful world of

snowboarding, enjoying holidays at 2000 meters above the sea in one of the best Italian resorts, with top gear available.
