K2 Maysis Boots

k2-logo-120-07

When a product is backed by a rider growing into legend status like Tim Eddy people should take note, and that’s exactly what’s happening with the 2016 K2 Maysis Snowboard Boots.  Literally people are writing reminder notes to themselves to get the K2 Maysis.

Staring as one of the best selling Double BOA boots ever produced the two BOA dials have different functions; the 3D Molded Tongue‘s BOA controls the upper and lower tension whereas the lateral shell BOA controls the internal Conda Linder Lace System.  The K2 Maysis boots are built to last the test of time with an exoskeleton like Endo Construction that gives the same medium flex on day one as it does on day 1,000.  Harsh landings are no match for the Marshmellow impact resistant comfort pods that are embedded into the outsole.

All mountain freestyle riders can rejoice together because the K2 Maysis Boots provide more than just comfort and convenience, they provide lasting memories and pure joy.

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

Flex: 4/5
Profile: Powderhull

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.

Burton Snowboards give back more than they’ve taken out.  Since day one they’ve paved the way for constant progression, innovation, and understanding.  The time to showcase the evolution of technology is now, and there is no better company than Burton to do it with.

The ever expanding boandaries of Burton Snowboards lead to some of the most revolutionary technology that snowboarding has ever seen.  Technologies like Squeezebox, a performance driven core profile shape, mold the industry into new dimensions of pop and flex without sacrificing the strength of a snowboard.  For the 2015 Burton Snowboards, the Squeezebox was expanded with the addition of two new profiles; Squeezebox High and Squeezebox Low.

2013 Thirtytwo – 32 Sneak Peak

 

2013 Thirtytwo Sneak Peak

Can you believe you’re seeing a sneak peak of the 2013 Thirtytwo gear?  Below are our 2 favorite series/collaborations Thirtytwo is offering for the 2013 season; the Joe Sexton Signature Series and the Dirtytwo (Thirtytwo X DGK) Collection.  Both are on opposite ends of the style spectrum – they cater to Thirtytwo’s diverse range of riders.  If you’re hesh or thug Thirtytwo has something for you.  Think about combining the two.  Imagine a baggy Dirtytwo jacket and tight pants – it’s called EmoYo’.

 

 

2013 Thirtytwo Joe Sexton Signature Series

What’s every Midwest snowboard kid’s dream growing up?  To get sponsored and have a pro model.  Joe Sexton isn’t a kid any more, he’s a grown man sitting ontop of the snowboard industry.  Thirtytwo saw Joe’s potential marketability and gave him not only a pro model piece, but multiple pieces.   Here it is ladies and gentlemen the Joe Sexton Signature Series.

 

 

Thirtytwo DGK Collection

Bridging the gap between snowboarding and skateboarding isn’t done by wonder boy Shaun White, it’s done by Thirtytwo and it’s Thirtytwo DGK Collection.  For all the kids living in urban area with tons of rail, ledge, and drop options Thirtytwo desided to collaborate with skateboarding’s bad boys, Dirty Ghetto Kids.  If you like Aesop Rock, tagging bathroom mirrors, and Cab 270-Front Tail-Back Nose (Change Up)-Pretzel Out combos you’ll love everything Dirtytwo has to offer.

 

2013 Thirtytwo – 32 DGK Collection

2013 DGK x 32 Collection

How in the world did Thirtytwo and DGK come together for a collaboration?  Through the love of skating that’s how.  Everyone has a different style, or at least should have.  For the hesh dudes Thirtytwo offers the Joe Sexton Signature Series and for the thugs they offer the DGK Collection.  The DGK gear fits a lot bigger than the average pant and jacket combos, but when you’re a Dirty Ghetto Kid, that’s all that you need.  The DGK branding is top notch, the functionality is perfect, and the tech is right on the dial.

DGK Shiloh 2 Jackets

What is big, baggy, and full of features?  The Shiloh 2 Jacket.  The long length keeps your seat dry on crash landings and on long chair rides.  It’s the idea piece of the DGK Collection and screams for respect.

 

 

DGK Blahzay Pants

Shoe string isn’t a very wise supportive device, but make you look cool like the dudes at the local skatepark.  If the shoe string doesn’t keep your Blahzay Pants up, no worries, there is belt loops too.

 

 

 

DGK TM-Two Boots

Thirtytwo riders have a team boot favorite; it’s called the TM-Two.  One thing that could make the TM-Two better is a collaberation with DGK.  Not very many companies put as much detailed effort into their product, but Thirtytwo does.  DGK for live.
