Raring to go with a new shape concept for the 16/17 season, the Paradigma in its latest incarnation is a freestyle snowboard shaped and constructed for all-mountain dominance. Its directional twin shape gives it a true-twin feel on groomed and hard-pack snow. In powder and mixed snow conditions the Paradigma’s slightly longer and fuller nose shape and a touch of early rise rocker improve floatation and aid stability. At the back foot an extra pair of inserts enables a more set-back stance to help tackle the really deep days.
The Paradigma’s burly Omni Core and cleverly positioned basalt and carbon reinforcement give it the kahunas to charge the scariest lines and remain cool, calm and collected. If it’s speed you’re after, the new Sintered 7 base won’t slow you down. The Paradigma is the board for anybody that is ready to take their riding to the next level.
A half-fat camber for all-mountain dominance. Cruise Camber’s toned-down dimensions deliver a precise and lively feel much like Pop Camber, but with much improved deep snow performance and a more “broken-in” feel out of the shrink-wrap. In Amplid’s directional snowboards and skis a touch of early rise is added to Cruise Camber to improve buoyancy even further.

This superlight wood core is the industry standard for lighteweight, durable and versatile performance. We’ve tweaked this core so many times over the years there’s nothing left to improve.
A narrow band of uni-directional carbon stringers that run through the centreline of a ski or snowboard from tip-to-tail increasing pop and extending flex memory without altering torsional stiffness.
Running along the topsheet in a V-configuration from the contact points towards the bindings, these narrow bands of Basalt fabric dampen unwanted vibrations, reducing rider fatigue and keeping you edge engaged with the snow for improved control. Get the Rolls Royce feeling!
Using Biaxial Glass in the construction of our shreds gives them a flawless blend of response and playfulness whilst keeping them ridiculously lightweight.
A smooth kick radius and fuller tip outline improves deep snow floatation without adding swing weight.
Amplid’s ultra-high density sintered base goes like shit-off-a-shovel in all snow conditions. It is extremely hard and therefore more resistant to damage.
