    Unrestricted speed isn’t something we only enjoy on our highways. The UNW8’s aggressive geometry, advanced construction and powerful flex are designed to handle velocity like no other all-mountain snowboard. Stability and damping go together, Antiphase offers the smoothest ride with none of the sogginess of lesser technologies.

     

    The UNW8 is all about the thrills. Take more speed, pop higher, brake later, endure more G-force than your legs can handle… experience everything your head tells you to avoid, but your heart yearns for. Once mastered, nothing compares to the all-mountain dominance of the UNW8!

     

    The UNW8 is one of three boards in Amplid's Centrifugal Collection, a brothehood of boards designed for handling high speeds and maximizing the enjoyment that comes from simply turning a snowboard.

    Full Camber

    Full Camber

    Burly man-camber, designed for maximum edge hold and explosive pop. Full 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

      Usually biaxial glass is optimum, but occasionally only the increased torsional rigidity of triax, which in layman’s terms means more grip and response, will do.

    • 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.
