For the women that guide the troop on a powder day and smoke the boys down every black trail, there’s the LoveLife. Far more badass than its name would suggest, this little pocket rocket features the same materials, tech and powerful feel as Amplid’s demanding men’s snowboards.
Amplid’s design team took the Paradigma, a legendary all-mountain performer, brought in the waist by a centimeter and fine-tuned the flex for lighter riders. Targeted reinforcements include an explosive Carbon Pop Band to invigorate the flex and tranquilizing Basalt Suspension Strips to damp destabilizing lumps and bumps.
Directional Cruise Camber is a hybrid that blends a powerful camber cavity through most of the running length with a touch of early rise in the nose. This time-proven recipe perfectly balances hard snow performance with autopilot powder cruising.
For the second year in a row the LoveLife has been featured in Outside Online's prestigious Buyers Guide as one of the Five Best Women's Snowboards of 2017! Check-out the whole review here.

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.
