THIS WINTER’S RADDEST SNOWBOARD GEAR
With winter 2018 just around the corner, we thought we would select some of the snowboard gear that we are really stoked on this season.
CAMBER PROFILE MID/STIFF FLEX SINTERED BASE TRI-AX GLASS TRUE TWIN BLUNT PROFILE NOSE AND TAIL SPRUCE AND POPLAR WOOD CORE
Coming from one of the coolest brands around, that hand-build every board in their California Factory, is an all-terrain cambered beauty that is happy destroying any terrain that gets in its way.
The board has blunted nose and tail for smooth spins, well the slightly wider than normal waist is going to give you more stability on landings and a little bit more lift on powder days.
X2 Bryan Iguchi Signature
POLYURETHANE FLEXIBLE FRAME OPTICALLY CORRECT LENS SYSTEM SCRATCH RESISTANT COATING SUPER ANTI-FOG COATING UNIDIRECTIONAL AIRFLOW SYSTEM ARMORED VENTING HELMET COMPATIBLE TRI - FOAM TECHNOLOGY POLARTECH MICROFLEECE
When a snowboard legend like Bryan Iguchi puts his stamp on something, you know it's going to be pretty rad.
The X2 features Dragon's patented frameless design with Swiftlock Technology for quick lens changes if the weather conditions change. Fitted with a Dark Smoke lens for styling-it-out on brighter days and a bonus LUMALENS Flash Blue lens when the clouds close in.
Optimised LUMALENS Colour Technology provides ultra high-definition across the entire spectrum of light conditions, this not only enhances colour vividness it also increases contrast which in turn improves depth perception and reduces eye fatigue.
DUAL BOA CLOSURE BLACK LINER INTERNAL ANKLE HARNES VIBRAM OUTSOLE ARTICULATED CUFF IMPACT S INSOLE AEROTECH VENTILATION SYSTEM
DC has been in the skate footwear and snowboard boot game since the early days and that wealth of experience and product knowledge are firmly cemented in the DC Judge boot. Utilising a dual BOA closure for a secure and responsive fit the Judge delivers a solid and responsive feel. The boot incorporates top-flight tech like Vibram outsoles and Black liners; delivering plenty of features for the price.
