Well here we go again. It’s the beginning of August and we are already talking about snowboarding and what’s new in the snowboard game for 2015. Crazy to think that all the hot new gear starts arriving at the tail end of the summer, but that’s so we can have exactly what you’ve been looking for in time for the holidays and your snow trips. With some pretty profound advancements in snowboarding technology from Magne-Traction to tech outerwear, what do you think is the hot new thing this year is going to be? To get you in the mood here are some hand-selected items that we have coming that will only enhance your snowboarding experience.
Here are two boards you really want to keep in mind for this year.
2015 Lib Tech TRS XC2 is an all-mountain killer! A new formula of C2 with a shorter, but aggressive Banana rocker combined with cambers that sit more underfoot. Camber Banana Tech & Magne-Traction…yes, please!
2015 Never Summer Ripsaw with CR technology is one to keep your eye on. Never Summer has this new CR Technology that features amplified camber areas that are longer and deeper than their traditional Rocker Camber (RC) boards. True twin tip with crazy pop!
New Boots to keep you feet happy.
2015 ThirtyTwo TM-Two Stevens Boot is the #1 team boot year after year. ThirtyTwo boots are truly some of the most comfortable boots and feature this awesome System G2 Gel that helps on impact. Oh, and if you don’t know who Scott Stevens is, get on YouTube now!
2015 Nike Snowboarding Lunarendor Boot is a mixed bag of awesomeness. The Lunarendor is not only one of the most comfortable boots in the Nike line, it’s packing more tech than any other boot made…with features like FlyWire inner lacing, 3D molding and Lunarlon cushioning. What else? It lights up with an on/off switch and features 30 LED lights to illuminate the Swoosh. This boot will be a Quick Strike this year so be sure to follow us for release dates!
The best bindings to stay locked in with the response you’ve always wanted.
2015 Union Force bindings are what put Union on the map 10 years ago! The best bang for the buck, the Union’s Stage IV Base, Force Multizone Highbacks, and Magnesium Buckles can take on anything. Park rats and backcountry riders best friends.
2015 Burton Cartel EST is a must own if you are getting any Burton board with the Channel. There is no greater connection with this combo and you can never go wrong with Black Bindings. *Booked!
Good Goggles : MUST HAVE
Nike Command PH (Black/Volt) Goggle w/ Transition Lens. Say what? That’s right. The big dogs at Nike are coming into the Google game this year and they are not holding back. The Command is a large fit goggle that is designed for the ultimate field of view. One of the best parts is the new Speed Change Lens System, a “Push and Pull” bracket system that features a fully sealed, anti-fog treated dual lens with uni-body gasket. It’s Nike…they know what they are doing. Transitions adaptive shield automatically darken and lighten in response to changing sun light and weather conditions. True game changer.
Anon M2 Goggles are crazy. The first time you change the lens and experience the Magna-Tech quick lens change system you are going to freak out. It’s so simple. With wall to wall vision and full perimeter channel venting, the Anon M2 should be in your top 3 to decide from.
Protect your dome you dummy.
Electric Mashman (Charcoal Flake/Stripe) Helmet features custom flake paint, and is badass to look at. Classic motorcycle style with a twist, the Mashman isn’t heavy at all. Easy Rider never looked so good snowboarding.
Smith Maze (Matte Black) Helmet is the go-to helmet for clean, modern, minimalist design. No fancy bells and whistles here…just the worlds lightest certified snow helmet. NBD.
Lastly, if you want to play the part you have to dress the part.
686 Parkland Pact Anorak (Camel Pincord Colorblock) is a 1/2 zip pullover-style jacket. It’s all about the earth tones yo! A killer 10K jacket for all occasions.
Burton Nomad Jacket (True Penny/Indigo Denim) features Burton’s Dryride Durashell. Another great 10K jacket, but this one packs170g of PrimaLoft Silver insulation. Not quite a puffy, but equally as comfortable.
Volcom Articulated Pant (Teak) features a Modern Articulated Fit/2-Way Stretch/15K waterproofing/15K breathable….gone are the gangsta pant days.
Nike Snowboarding Enigma Hoody (Black/Volt/Ivory) is the most high tech riding hoodie…EVER.
Crab Grab Mega Claw Stomp Pad. Look, we know some people think stomp pads aren’t needed, but you know what…these are RAD. We’re down with the Crab Grab Crew!
Leatherman Hail + PS Tool (Pocket Tool) and Skeletool SX (Multi-Tool) are a couple gems from Leatherman that you need. Don’t be that guy always asking for a screwdriver or knife…pack your own heat.
