Beneath a suit of sophisticated artwork the UNW8 is concealing a ferocious character. Unrelenting edge-hold is a by-product of the UNW8’s full-length Pop Camber and V-Pop Stringers which focus rider inputs at its contact points and intensify its pop. Weight-reducing HEXO2 Technology and Amplid’s Lite Core, a featherweight core constructed from batons of hand selected low density Poplar, make the UNW8 feel connected and responsive underfoot and effortless in the air. This is a board which responds best to the aggressive and powerful riding styles of expert snowboarders.
New All-Terrain Tips, which conceal extra surface area and a smooth radius, boost the UNW8 floatation in soft snow conditions. Longer contact points, part of the UNW8’s innovative new geometry, lock onto firm snow in steep terrain and stabilize the board at hair-raising speeds.
Expect all the brutality of previous UNW8s with a touch of refinement.
Burly man-camber, designed for maximum edge hold and explosive pop. Pop 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.
