All good things come in threes. The Future Shapes Series by Amplid scores with three great and extraordinary boards. The Aloha Vibes is the snow-surf fun machine for demanding lines and playful terrain.
Powder in any terrain. No matter if tree runs, playful pillow lines or big mountain, the Aloha Vibes brings surf feeling into the pow.
The nose of the Directional Shape is longer than the tail. The bindings and the sidecut are slightly set back towards the tail. This increases stability at higher speeds and the float in powder. A Tapered Shape means the nose is wider than the tail, this enhances deep snow flotation.
A half-fat camber for all-mountain dominance. Cruise Camber’s toned-down dimensions deliver a precise and lively feel much like Pop Camber, but with much improved deep snow performance and a more “broken-in” feel out of the shrink-wrap. In Amplid’s directional snowboards a touch of early rise is added to Cruise Camber to improve buoyancy even further.
A medium stiff flex (7/10) brings control and precision to your snow surf.
The Omni Core is a dependable, low-density Poplar wood core which is light-weight, durable and has great flex memory. The industry standard for great performance. Thick Cut was introduced with the Future Shapes series, Thick Cut Cores have a thicker profile in the tip and tail to reduce vibrations and increase stiffness where you need it. Reduced nose and tail deflection improves deep snow float, adds control and increases stability. Featured only in Amplid’s Thick Cut Core, Hexo2 Lite places honeycomb in the tips, but not between the bindings. The weight saving from removing excess material reduces swing weight and heightens responsiveness. The Jekyll & Hyde Geometry means maximum effective edge and square centimetres in a minimal board length. Unsinkable but nimble powder boards, sawn-off jib decks with huge pop and edge-hold and the ultimate all-mountain recipe. Floatation Tips are ultra wide, low rising tips that exist purely to create lift in powder without sucking-up speed. They add a surfy feel to skis and snowboards. Using Biaxial Glass in the construction gives boards a flawless blend of response and playful-ness whilst keeping them ridiculously lightweight. The Sintered 7 Base is a premium sintered plastic which readily absorbs wax and will out-run your riding buddies’ bases without breaking a sweat. You better get used to waiting
