2016 Sneak Peek : New Snowboard Arrivals
2016 SNEAK PEEK : NEW SNOWBOARD ARRIVALS
By Chris Cahill, Seattle, WA: It’s finally August and the first snowfalls are finally making their way to your respective mountains. Although this doesn’t create a snowpack worth riding, it begins to remind us that winter is on its way back. At evo we have been chomping at the bit to get our hands on the 2016 boards that will fill our website, Portland store, and Seattle store and finally, the wait is over! Now’s the time to unstrap from your bindings and quit the carpet jibbing because we have a few boards in stock that you need to check out.
Take a peek at all of our 2016 snowboards arriving daily, here.
The only way to describe a board as ferocious as the Lib Tech x Mayhem Rocket C3 BTX Snowboard is to ride it yourself. Legendary surf shaper Matt Biolos shaped the Mayhem into a short, wide, directional pow stick. As legend has it, this surfy board can ride hardpack just fine too. 657 square inches of planing surface means this board has a big ol’ sweet spot to get you pitted riding the white wave, aka wind lips of the backcountry.
Lib Tech has the snowboard that can get weird with you wherever you ride it. The Lib Tech DUH XC2 BTX Snowboard is the brainchild of Lib’s experiMENTAL division. DUH stands for Deeper Understanding Hypothesis because Lib has a grip on what you need in an all-mountain board. Speed Lever Technology utilizes two bases for a faster ride that maintains edge-hold. With double the edges, you get double the control, precision and turning insanity. The smaller base has less friction and less sidecut for a fast aggressive ride. When you engage the second base and external edge you get that extra grip and control.
The GNU Ladies Choice EC2 PBTX Snowboard is an all-mountain freestyle, intermediate to expert shred machine. EC2 BTX places rocker between your feet and elliptical camber at the contact points to make this board powerful in a carve, but playful and forgiving when it comes to stomping a spin or working a box.
Your body isn’t symmetric toe to heel, so why should your snowboard be? Basic ergonomics has been used to designed the Ride Helix Snowboard – it works with the natural mechanics of your body creating a unique asymmetric park board. This crazy snowboard features a deeper sidecut on the heel edge to make board control a breeze but don’t worry, the Helix is still a twin at heart so you can stomp your landings or ride it switch too.
