THE PASSION

2013 COLLECTION


3D Snake Transition In common snowboard construction, Torsional Rigidity (Torsional Resistance) is directly connected to the board flex. In general, the more longitudinal flex the board features, the poorer the torsional performance. More flex means better turning, easier control, better pop and more fun, but weak grip on ice or hard-pack conditions. Snake Transition technology is the three dimensional construction that permits the separation of board flex (longitudinal flex) from Torsional Rigidity (cross flex) and manage both of them separately. The idea of the patent-pending technology is to introduce pre-stress to the board, by deforming it through a form of additional waves. Storing the energy inside the board makes it more reactive, responsive and livelier. It also allows thinner and lighter board construction with greater durability. Snake Transition increases the Tosional Rigidity by 15% and additionally increases the board flex by 35% at the same time (compared to standard construction). Thanks to the Snake Transition design, it is now possible to have both stability at speed and fun in the snowpark. Find out more at: www.SNAKETRANSITION.com

SNAKE TRANSITION NANO

Contract’s hi - tech construction in a jib-friendly edition. Smaller wave amplitude. ABS SANDWICH CONSTRUCTION

There is no better snowboard construction than this one. Direct power transfer to the edges and vibration dampening, resulting in easy to handle and precise boards. HONEYCOMB

This aerospace product found its sweet spot in snowboard technology as well. It’s 90% lighter than wood, but has a great durability. Placed in different areas depending on board model, it reduces weight, gives pop, improves torsional response and allows accurate flex adjustment. TRIP

Trip technology lifts up the edges at points where the sidecut meets the tip and tail of the board, providing easier turn initiation, safer landings and no problems to ride straight. Easier turning, catch-free ride and powder floating. X-REACT

X layout of Carbon and Kevlar is a perfect combination. While Carbon supports rebound forces and edge grip, Kevlar reduces vibrations to a minimum. Together this results in excellent pop, quick response and a smooth ride.


WOODCORE

There is no better material for a snowboard core than wood. With its harmonious characteristics that combine strength, flex, light-weight and vibration dampening, it is still the uncrowned king of core materials. 100% polish poplar. TRIAX

Such a layout of fibers transfers power directly to the edges and creates perfect flex. As a result we have a board that charges with quick response and harmonious flexibility. EXTRUDED BASE

This base combines reliability with high durability. SINTERED PREMIUM BASE

A racehorse. Very fast but demanding. If you treat it well, it will reply for sure.

BIAX

The Biax combines a smooth and balanced flex with torsional performance for an easy and comfortable ride.

DOUBLE FIBER POWER


POWER PLATES

Additional biax fiber laminates underneath the binding areas to improve power transfer to the edges and to provide additional dampening properties. BCF

Stability of longer board + responsiveness and quickness of the shorter one. It’s Contract’s idea of boards featuring big sidecut radius – 12 and 20 meters. BCF gives you stability of a longer board combined with responsiveness and quickness of the shorter one. Some of our boards, thanks to the 3D construction feature more surface than similar models with the same size. Having Enlarged the sidecut radius (without oversizing the whole board) we have created the additional surface avoiding any loss in riding performance at all. BCF Gives You better stability at speed and works well in powder. TRUE TWIN TIP -

a perfect symmetrical

shape nad flex. ALMOST TWIN TIP

- The moste versalite snowboard shape for improved and easy Float. DIRECTIONAL SHAPE - Classic shape designe to give you perfect control and flow in all conditions


ZERO CAMBER - a consistent feel from

tip to tail

POSITIVE CAMBER

- amplifies the rider’s energy then powers it back into the board and results with an amazing POP.

SNAKE FLEX

Snake Transition allows to increase the board flex up to 35% and additionaly increase the Torsional Rigidity by 15% for safer and more fun riding. We have provided our own scale of Flex for you, but it’s always going to be better than you think it is.
