Like taking to the autobahn in a specced out Benz, the UNW8 is all about dispensing with the concept of speed limits entirely. Top-shelf construction techniques, powerful flex and aggressive geometries enable ballistic assaults across the full spectrum of mountain terrain, and once you’ve gone all in, Antiphase 3.0 ensures turns flow smoother than a Bond one-liner.

Like a shot of endorphin condensed into a beautifully-crafted snowboard, this board is geared towards popping higher, carving deeper, straightlining longer and unweighting faster. Crank everything up to 11 with confidence on the UNW8.

Full Camber

Full Camber

Burly man-camber, designed for maximum edge hold and explosive pop. Full Camber is best suited to high-end shreds where performance is paramount. It’s hard work to ride well, but being slingshot out of carves and launched high above the coping is all the reward you’ll ever need.

Technical Key Features

  • HEX02 Technology

    Spin to win with effortless style. Amplid’s HEXO2 core replaces specific areas of weightier wood at the tips with featherlight honeycomb, practically eliminating swing weight,

  • Triax Glass

    Usually biaxial glass is optimum, but occasionally only the increased torsional rigidity of triax, which in layman’s terms means more grip and response, will do.

  • All terrain Tips

    A smooth kick radius and fuller tip outline improves deep snow floatation without adding swing weight.

  • Sintered 7HD Base

    A premium sintered plastic which readily absorbs wax and will out-run your riding buddies’ bases without breaking a sweat. You better get used to waiting.

  • Antiphase

    An advanced composite damping technology, developed in house at Amplid, which reduces unwanted vibrations for a smoother more controlled ride.

  • Lite Core

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

  • PRE-CURED IMPACT PLATES

    Tough, pre-cured composite impact plates placed beneath bindings and touring hardware significantly reduce the risk of topsheet dings and breakages.

  • CENTRIFUGAL CARBON

    Unidirectional carbon stringers placed in the tail, to amplify pop and acceleration out of the turn.
