Eco performance

Performance focused, eco conscious.

Performance + Durability + Sustainability

Balancing the qualities of performance, durability and sustainability is one of the most difficult aspects of snowboard design. We strive to use as many sustainable materials as possible, but we trust our lives to these boards so we must value performance foremost. Durability is a critical aspect of snowboard sustainability as the longer a board lasts, the less waste that goes to the dump. This ECO-Performance design philosophy is the foundation upon which everything we make is made. We test new materials and production processes against these criteria and strive to make the most sustainable products possible without sacrificing performance or durability.
