Last March German freeride skiing magazine Powder-Magazin took the Facelift for a spin on the Kaunertal Glacier. They tested the ski in a full range of conditions and had some great things to say about the ski.
Amplid took the time to translate ACT Magazine's snowboard reviews into English for your reading pleasure. ACT is renowned for their testing crew's in-depth analyses of boards, so we're stoked to have won two treasured "Ace of ACT" awards for the Paradigma and the Morning Glory. Read the full reviews here.
Exotics Skis' Eric Edelstein knows a thing or two about testing skis, since starting his blog Exotics skis he must have tested hundreds of pairs from small and independent manufacturers. Based on the US' East Coast he experiences a huge range of conditions, so we thought what better ski to test than the Alter Ego? Here's what he had to say after months of testing.
Blister tester Andrew Forward spent more than a month in the extremes of Alaska last spring, climbing in excess of 6000ft daily and putting the Amplid Milligram through the most rigorous test.
Utilizing the materials and technologies developed for the Amplid Milligram, the World's lightest splitboard, the new Facelift touring ski cuts a kilogram of ski weight without sacrificing a gram of performance. Here we take a closer look at this awesome flagship ski.
Backcountry blogger "The Gemstock", aka Andy Malton, took the Creamer Split, Amplid's dependable and affordable splitboard, for a week of touring in the world-famous Lyngen Alps to see if the board measure up to his expectations. Click on the link and see what he had to say after a week of shredding.
The Facelift is an all-new touring ski designed for the new generation of freeriders looking to go deeper into the backcountry. Utilising a carbon construction developed for the Milligram splitboard it blends weightlessness with solid performance. Amplid's Julien Lange has been out on the ski, conducting invaluable testing.
Andy from The Gemsstock - Deep Snow Culture, spent the first few weeks of winter in Whistler. Where better to taste a powder board than the Canada's west coast?
The Roof Box is Newschoolers' pick of the best ski gear. This week Newschoolers' gear editors selected the top powder skis from the 15/16 winter offering. They had a lot of positive things to say about the Hill Bill!
Newschoolers gear editor Twig took the all-new Antidote for a ride last month, in classic pre-season conditions, on the Stubai Glacier. It's hard for any ski to excel in early season conditions, so we were very stoked when the ski came-up trumps.
Reviewing snowboards is all about opinion and the Angry Snowboarder has more opinion to share than most reviewers. It's fortunate for us then that Angry loved the Pillow Talk, a fresh concept in powder board design.
