    Fine-tuned and tinkered-with for more than a decade, the UNW8 is Amplid’s all-mountain flagship.

     

    Demanding to ride, but intensely rewarding, the UNW8 will take aggressive, expert snowboarders to the next level and beyond. Weightless HEXO2 honeycomb construction gives the UNW8 fighter-jet-like handling. Antiphase, Amplid’s ruthlessly-efficient damping tech, smooths out the ride like you’re flying with Air Force One. 

     

    For the carve-crazy, its full-length Pop Camber and extended effective edge will keep the contact points engaged and the UNW8 gripping, no-matter how slick the groomers get… at least until your thighs explode from the strain. And it’s unlikely you’ll forget the intoxicating acceleration of its Sintered 7HD base.

    Pop Camber

    Pop Camber

    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.

    Technical Key Features

    • HEX02 Technology

      Spin to win with effortless style. Amplid’s HEXO2 core replaces specific areas of weightier wood at the tips with featherlight recycled paper honeycomb, practically eliminating swing weight,

    • Triax Glass

      Amplid uses Triaxial glass in the majority of its skis for greater torsional rigidity, which in layman’s terms means more grip and response.

    • All terrain Tips

      A smooth kick radius and fuller tip outline improves deep snow floatation without adding swing weight.

    • Sintered 7HD Base

      A premium sintered plastic which readily absorbs wax and will out-run your riding buddies’ bases without breaking a sweat. You better get used to waiting.

    • Antiphase

      An advanced composite damping technology, developed in house at Amplid, which reduces unwanted vibrations for a smoother more controlled ride.

    • Lite Core

      Uber light wood varieties are cut, treated and aligned in a way only our factory knows. Its strength to weight ratio has scientists baffled.

    • PRE-CURED IMPACT PLATES

      Tough, pre-cured composite impact plates placed beneath bindings and touring hardware significantly reduce the risk of topsheet dings and breakages.

    • CENTRIFUGAL CARBON

      Unidirectional carbon stringers placed in the tail, to amplify pop and acceleration out of the turn.
