A passion project of Amplid’s founder Peter Bauer, the Morning Glory brings the feel and flow of surfing to powder. Hold your line through a deep bottom-turn and snap a cut-back at the crest of a wind-lip. The parallels with aggressive short board wave riding are undeniable!
Jekyll & Hyde Geometry and HEXO2 construction are the secret ingredients behind the Morning Glory’s unmatched floatation and agility. Clever shaping creates the active surface area of a snowboard 12cm longer while the short effective edge and Honeycomb inserts reduce swing weight and bring control closer to the rider’s feet. Tight terrain or open bowls, when the snow is deep the Morning Glory in its element, but even on hard pack it’s not a fish out of water. Just remember to set your alarm!
S-Rocker, the ultimate freeride camber-line, features a blend of cleverly placed camber and rocker. Rocker in the nose aids floatation and improves deep snow agility. A conservative amount of set-back camber improves tail hold in icy conditions and adds stiffness just where you need it; for stomping big landings, styling dramatic slashes and scrubbing speed.
