For more than 10 years the UNW8 has set a standard for edge-orientated snowboards. Loaded with Amplid’s signature HEXO2 honeycomb construction and Amplid’s premium Sintered 7 HD base, its hallmark characteristics of vapor-weight construction and brutal performance make other high-end snowboards irrelevant.
Now, as part of Amplid’s Centrifugal Collection, the latest incarnation of the UNW8 is upgraded with AntiphaseTM Technology. AntiphaseTM is an advanced damping system which neutralizes vibrations, without sapping pop and life from its flex.
As smooth and controlled as a Bullet Train at terrifying speeds in every terrain, the UNW8 will push you beyond your comfort zone, in comfort.
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.
