Quiksilver | True Wetsuit

Business Wetsuit

1 - quiksilver-clothing-logo-120Quiksilver Japan jumped head first into the business to active wear segment with the True Wetsuit.  There isn’t much worse than cramming behind an ocean front desk counting down the ticks until punch-out.  Imagine being able to stride from work to water with zero transition time to change clothes.  Quiksilver has done just that; created a business suit designed to give powerpoint presentations that can also snap slashes on tight barrels within the time it takes to get from the office to the beach.

Finding a perfect surfboard can take a tremendous amount of time, as does finding the flawless suit.  The Quiksilver True Wetsuit is available in three killer styles.  The BLK (black) and NAV (navy) suits are cut for business and surfing whereas the Tux (black) is strictly for partying and surfing.

Cut with a modern slim silhouette the pants and jacket flatter the fit, but with a 2mm thickness anyone can slide into a size range from medium to extra large.  GBS (Glued & Blind Stitching) seams assist the regulation of heat while the cuffs freely filers new water throughout the single breasted double button suit.

The DRYFLIGHT 4WAY fabric that was developed in conjunction with Scotchgard and 3M makes up the water repellent and stain/dirt proof Quiksilver True Wetsuit Dress Shirt.  The shirt could actually be worn on a day to day basis – it’s soft to the touch and has a firm collar to frame any well tied knot.

Sublimation transfer printing allows for bold colors on the ties.  A refined finish starts as a 2mm neoprene ultra stretch jersey fabric and gracefully knots with a center dimple.

Draping over a hanger around $2,500 USD the True Wetsuit is a commodity worth its weight in gold.  Whether in a boardroom or on a board the Quiksilver True Wetsuit will be rippling waves for years to come, make sure to get one before the tide dies.

K2 Maysis Plus Boots

k2-logo-120-07

Imagine every great thing you know about the K2 Maysis, and then imagine it with a handful of upgrades, that’s what the new 2016 K2 Maysis Plus Snowboard Boot is all about.

Everything loved about the Maysis is there; the BOA Conda that snuggly wraps the Intuition Pro Foam 3D Liner, the Endo Construction still allows the boots to flex consistently throughout it’s lifetime, and of course Harshmellow underfoot dampening.

The Maysis Plus upgrades include a wide range a tech.  The Vibram V4 Outsole focuses on durability, weight reduction, grip, and a classic lug design.  Although the Maysis Plus only has one BOA external tension system, it works and feels as if it has two BOA dials because of the Tailored Zonal Fit customization.  On the lateral side of the shell the Tailor Zonal Fit system has three different tension notch setting; one with a lower tension bias, one for neutral tension, and one for a upper tension bias.

With a slightly stiff flex and response the K2 Maysis Plus, with all of it’s customization and comfort, is a boot that can master the whole mountain.  Reaching the next level couldn’t be easier, especially if your ride in the Maysis Plus.

2016 Yes 20/20 Snowboard | Sneak Peek

Yes 20/20 Snowboard

The 2016 Yes 20/20 Snowboard floats on powder better than powder specific boards yet can grip on corduroy like any true twin board. With what’s called a 3D Powder Hull profile shape, the Yes 2020 Snowboard features a concave nose and tail that provides hydrodynamic planing. If there’s one board that’s going to revolutionize how boards are shaped in the future, it’s the 2015 Yes 2020 Snowboard.

Shape: True Twin

Base: Sintered True

 

1 - 2016 Yes 2020 Snowboard

Yes 20/20 Snowboard 3D Powder Hull Profile

The 3D Powder hull starts with a base profile that combines 2 distinct rocker lines that, when blended together, create a pronounced base concave in the nose and tail. The centerline is fully rockered starting from the insert packs, all the way to the tips of the bluntly shaped nose and tail. out at the contact edges, is a more conventional base profile that we use on many of our other boards. The resultant concave across the nose and tail acts differently at the leading end of the board than it does at the trailing end when riding in deep snow. At the leading end (nose), the concave draws air under the board – just as a concave spoon-nose does on longboards in the surf – causing lift and floatation. As the snow moves across the base it releases off the tail and the exaggerated rocker line along the center, causes the tail to drop downward.

So even though it’s a perfectly balanced twin, the board rides through deep snow with the
same pitch, or planing angle, that we get with directional shapes and set-back stances.

On hard-pack it’s just a short, wide, super fun twin.
