THE FINEST INGREDIENTS YOU CAN GET UNDER YOUR FEET

200 days of riding per year. A strategic location in the heart of the Alps. Suppliers who are dedicated Amplid Research Cartel members. From our 2012 superlight Hexo2 Core Technology to shred life extending Abuse Base or Stomp Guard inventions. A complete fleet of Amplid developed and owned moulds. A team that tests and improves the product 24/7, exposing it to impact while ripping for judges, cameramen, photographers, or for themselves. Out ticket into the year 3000 of shred science.

AMPLID CORE SCIENCE

 
 

HEXO2 CORE TECHNOLOGY

 

HELIO P15 ULTRALIGHT WOOD CORE

 
  Spin to win with effortless style.
Our HEXO2 core replaces specific areas of weightier wood at the tips with featherlight recycled paper honeycomb, practically eliminating swing weight.
HEXA CORE TECHNOLOGY  

Uber light wood varieties are cut, treated and aligned in a way only our factory knows. Its strength to weight ratio has scientist baffled.

P10 SUPERLIGHT WOOD CORE

 

WDT POLYWOOD CORE

 
  The P10 Superlight wood core is the industry standard for lightweight, durable and versatile performance. We've tweaked this core so many times there is nothing left to improve. P10 SUPERLIGHT WOOD CORE  

Snappy and damp weren't two ride characteristics that went together before WDT. This isotropic wood composite core brushes aside heavy impacts and requires 50% less energy to manufacture.

AMPLID WEAVING WISDOM

 
 

HEX MAT GLASS EPOXYD MATRIX

 

HEX MAT CARBON GLASS EPOXYD MATRIX

 
  Every gram that can be spared from our HEXO2 sleds is cut. Hex Mat is a prepreg biax glass with exactly the right amount of epoxy between the fibres. If left at room temperature this material will set so it is delivered to our factory in freezer trucks and stored at -20C. HEX MAT GLASS EPOXYD MATRIX  

We arrange glass fibre along the length of the ski and carbon from edge-to-edge. The end result is a ski that flexes on demand into carves but with a torsional flex that keeps your edges biting no matter how hard the snow gets.

GLASSFIBER LIGHT BIAX

 

GLASSFIBER IMPACT BIAX

 
  Using Biax Glass in the construction of our shreds gives them a flawless blend of response and playfulness whilst keeping them ridiculously lightweight. GLASSFIBER LIGHT BIAX  

The current level of Park and Urban riding is putting a whole new dimension of demands on ski and snowboard durability. Impact Biax Glass is bombproof, flexes the way you want it to and doesn't weigh you down.

V-POP CARBON STRINGER

       
  You don't need to ride a crinklecut
French Fry to get vice-like edge hold. V-Pop Carbon Stringers channel power from your feet to the extremes of your board's effective edge. The result is a snow magnet. The only sideeffect we know of is explosive pop!

AMPLID GEOMETRY IDEOLOGIES 

 
 

FLY TIPS

 

ELLIPTIC NOSE ROCKER

 
  Our tapered Fly Tips remove the necessity of bringing the wood core or a TPU spacer to the tips, reducing swing weight and inc rea s ing playfulness. FLY TIPS  

The optimal snowboard nose for riding powder planes at high speed but works hard to keep its tip from submarining in tight situations when you can't open the throttle. Elliptical geometry is the only way to achieve this.

T.P.U. SPIN TIPS

 

MC BEZIER SPLINE SIDECUT

 
  Cut-down swing-weight and your spinning game will accelerate to the next level. TPU spacers keep our tips light and durable. T.P.U. SPIN TIPS  

We wouldn't go to all the effort of designing our skis and snowboards in a 3D CAD program in complex Bezier-mode to create mathematically correct shapes if they didn't ride better.

AMPLID DURABILTY FEATURES

 
 

ABUSE BASE TECHNOLOGY

 

STOMP GUARD

 
  Abuse Base is a thin, weightless metal coating placed between the bottom layer of glass and the base. The metal gauze conducts heat created from sliding rails and boxes away from hot spots and disperses it throughout the base eradicating heat deformation. abuse base technology  

Stomp Guard Tech is a thin strip of feather-light Titanium-Aluminium alloy sandwiched into our shreds in just the right places, reducing the risk of core shots caused by rocks close to the edge and increasing edge impact strength by up to 215%.

STOMP GUARD  
             
 

NUKEPROOF ROUNDTOP

 

TWINBEVEL SIDEWALLS

 
  Botox for your skis: To protect the topsheet from aging, our latest ski construction offers the best solution against chipping: Thanks to our 3D mould the PE foil gets welded over a small radius onto the sidewall. NUKEPROOF  

Ski topsheets are under constant attack from the edge of the ski on your other foot, lift line snakes and weekend ski school. We bevel the join between the topsheet and the sidewall on all of our skis to help prevent chips and delams.

TWINBEVEL SIDEWALLS  
             
 

22° SLANTED ABS SIDEWALLS

 

MAGMA EDGE SHOCK ABSORBER

 
  Our snowboard sidewalls are bevelled to 22°degrees, giving them the optimal balance between impact resistance and power transmission on sketchy hardpack. 22° SLANTED ABS SIDEWALLS  

There's no such thing as “good vibrations” when you're haulin' ass.
We place a thin strip of rubber between the edge and the sidewall to iron-out any unwanted bumps.

AMPLID INTELLECTUAL PROPS

 
 

DDT PROCESSING

 

P.L.T. GLOSS UV COATING

 
  For artwork with fine details that needs to be crisp and punchy, silkscreen just won't cut it. Direct Digital Technology brings complex graphics alive with incredible definition and keeps adverse environmental impact to a minimum. DDT PROCESSING  

Love high gloss lacquer finishes but hate lacquer cracks? Completely crack proof, tough as old boots, shinier than Monty Burns' waxed scalp and ecofriendly; our UV coating is the bomb!

360° WRAP AROUND STEEL EDGE

 

HORSESHOE STEEL EDGE

 
  If there was a more durable way of building a snowboard we'd be using it. 360° wrap around steel edges protect your board from delams and dings without adding weight. 360° WRAP AROUND STEEL EDGE  

Ever seen a 2000lbs Shire horse  smash a horseshoe to pieces? Nope either have we. With preshaped “horseshoe” edges at the tips of our skis, your skis won't delam or experience popped-out edges.

HORSESHOE STEEL EDGE  
             
 

DOOMSDAY CAMBER/ROCKER

       
  Believe it or not, even glass fibres have a degree of elasticity. Using pre-stretched fibres in our laminates means you can be sure that your shred will never feel lifeless or lack pop throughout its life. DOOMSDAY CAMBER/ROCKER        
 

AMPLID GLIDING SECRETS

 
 

SINTERED GE 7.2 LIGHTSPEED BASE/STONE FINISH

 

SINTRUDED 6.6 H. M. BASE/STONE FINISH

 
  This is the very same material used in record breaking race skis and snbs. Squeezing yourself into a lycra catsuit and going gate bashing probably isn't your thing, but this almost frictionless base will guarantee that when you point straight you'll be riding as fast as gravity will allow. SINTERED GE 7.2 LIGHTSPEED BASE/STONE FINISH  

For those riders who don't have a waxing iron on standby when they go shredding, our Sintruded base merges the best properties of sintered and extruded materials. Greece lightening on all snow conditions for weeks after a wax and rock hard too.

EXTRUDED BA 4.4 DURASPEED BASE

 

SHRED READY

 
  For concrete ledges and triple kink handrails Amplid ' s Extruded “Bonk Al l ” 4.4 Duraspeed Base is more durable than armour plate, it's easy to repair and doesn't need regular waxing like sintered varieties. EXTRUDED BA 4.4 DURASPEED BASE  

We're not going to sell you the best shred you've ever ridden and leave the tuning to somebody else. We give every ride the best tune it will ever receive.
