Is freestyle your riding style? Do you not want to go without quality and longevity when you spend a little less money? Then the Vice from Aperture is an excellent choice. Features like the twin tip sandwich construction and a hybrid handlebar rocker camber profile make the board very forgiving, but with good edge hold when it comes to steep slopes and hardpack.
Perfect for Ladies who want to progress fast or cruise the whole mountain and ride everything.
This snowboard comes in a Twin Freestyle Shape. Tip and tail are of equal length and width combined with a centred radial sidecut. The snowboard rides equally well in both directions with a focus on all-mountain freestyle.
The Handlebar Rocker is a hybrid rocker/camber profile. The positive camber under each foot supplies riders with the response they know and love while the reverse camber profile in the centre allows you to experience unparalleled float in the powder, as well as superb press-ability in the park. This do-it-all design allows you to have a quiver of one and ride the whole mountain like a terrain park.
The medium flex of the Vice is ideal for all mountain riding, stiff enough to be stable at higher speeds yet soft enough to feel playful.
ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) would probably taste bad in your daily meal, but it's the best material for sidewalls. The molecular structure can be described as a concrete bar with rubber nuggets inside, combining toughness for energy transfer and dampening properties for impact absorption. Extruded bases are fast, durable and easy to maintain. These are created by bonding polyethene pellets through heat and are less porous than Sintered bases but more durable. The sandwich construction and the biaxial laminate guarantees the right flex for light edge to edge turns while the 360-degree triple layer ASK rubber foil improves flexibility and bonding. Top this all-mountain weapon off by a fully laminated poplar wood core, which gives the board strength and durability.
Snowboarding is sadly not a cheap hobby. Luckily, Aperture have taken matters into their own hands and have created a line of snowboards and outerwear that won’t break the bank. They are helping us bring the wonderful world of snowboarding to more people around the globe.
