2013

Why do we do jobs we hate all summer to save up for new gear?

Why do we obsess about sticker placement? Why do we sit for hours crammed into cars with our friends on our way to the slopes? Why do we daydream about doing the perfect method/back lip/ double cork/(insert your favorite move here)?

Why do we wait in lift lines? Why do we nurse injuries on the couch, watching videos for weeks, only to go out and throw ourselves of some kicker or onto a rail, risking it all again?

Why do we spend all day hiking up a mountain for 5 minutes of powder turns on the way back down?

Why does Global warming piss us off? collection of Artec snowboard products to be better than ever?

BECAUSE we are ALL snowboarders, and SNOWBOARDING IS OUR LIFE! Welcome to Artec 2013.

I’ve been riding for so many years now and this is the best board i ever had for Jibs. Its perfect for presses and its got that skate style and feeling I want, but its still stable and for hitting the park - its just a super fun board.

-Hans Ahlund

This is what its all about, the Pop Rocker! A rocker board with pop unlike a lot of other rocker boards out there... I use this board for shredding around small parks, hitting up spots in the city, total freestyle. The shape is awesome and makes everything easy and tricks, they’re just there! Give it some pop and it will rock! Love this board.

-Kalle Ohlson

The Poprocker is my favorite board in the whole Artec collection. A sweet twin tip board perfect board that you dream about for all around park, powder and street shredding, its solid for anything that you can come up with! Have fun riding it and see you guys on the slopes!

The Cipher is my number one choice for bringing it to the mountain! Park, slopes or back country, this board suites me anywhere! The HyperTec camber gives me the support that I need when riding big kickers but it’s still playful in the park and shreds for rails and smaller features. It has mad pop, which I can’t live without, and the stability to stomp anything. The Cipher is my anywhere charger!

-Kalle Ohlson

The Cipher is my favorite board ever because I can do everything with it; hit rails, jumps, smooth, so I can still do all the press tricks with it. The Cipher is my “all the time board,” my favorite.

The Titan is the result of Artec’s commitment to provide us riders with equipment that delivers super high performance. Advanced construction and snowboard design means this board can handle anything, and bring freestyle to all frontiers. This board is my choice for ridding everything, from hauling ass down 13,000 ft peaks, bombing massive pillow lines, to stomping moves in the park and everything in between. With HyperTec Camber, the Titan conquers all terrain, and having it under my feet has made me a better snowboarder.

Whether your looking to ride rails & park jumps all day or get out and shred the mountain, this is the board for you. It’s an all around machine that charges through any terrain. Its perfect balance of softness/stiffness and super mellow rocker allows for powerful presses & supreme board control. I’ve never had a rocker board with so much POP!

-Johnny Miller

I ride the AltRocker a ton and I love it. Its super versatile and it holds up so well during the whole season. I had some heavy slams and heavy hits this year, and my AltRocker wasn’t damaged at all. This is a board you can buy and ride on anything. You just mount it up and do whatever you wanna do, and the AltRocker will be there for you.

But instead of designing some clunky low performance mega wide board, the Phenom is built to deliver precision control. To achieve this we combine a super wide waist with our exclusive omega sidecut technology, reducing the tip and tail widths, and allowing us to make a board that completely supports plus sized shredders while still being maneuverable and quick edge to edge. Featuring a twin tip shape, our IsoTec Wood Core, MonoTec sidewalls and ThetaTec base, the Phenom is for the big kids who still want to play in the park, and get loose on the slopes.
