Gnu Impossible Asym Snowboard

Gnu A.S.S. Impossible 2013 Snowboard: As Gnu and the people at Mervin have been driving innovation more than almost any company it almost seems silly for us to have to mention them on our Innovation Watch but we just can't help ourselves. They continue to simply put out unbelievable products. 2013 will see Gnu releasing the Asym Sym Sync, aka Impossible aka A.S.S. Pickle. The 2013 Gnu Impossible is a truly asymmetrical board designed with how riders move in mind. The board features an elongated toe side edge and shortened heel side edge along with deeper heelside sidecut and a mellower toeside sidecut. These features make edge transitions a breeze.

Rome Targa Bindings

Rome Targe 2013 Snowboard Binding: Time for an Innovation Watch on the 2013 version of the Rome Targa Bindings, a perennial favorite in the snowboard binding world. This year they are all about the cant. These bindings actually have three canting options in three different degrees including a pre-installed cant. Even their footbed is pumping out the cant sporting their motto "yes I cant". If puns aren't enough to make you like a binding, how about one of the only bindings around that actually pays attention to the little things like your straps being in the way when you try and put your boot into the binding. Rome once again has rubber straps to pull the ankle strap out and away from the binding leaving nothing in your way to quickly throw your boot in and tighten the straps back down. Oh and of course they come with ankle strap inserts to adjust stiffness. The tech on these bindings just doesn't seem to stop. Lots of photos inside the blog, take a look!

Gnu's 2013 Snowboard Line

As part of the Wiredsport team I was lucky enough to be able to attend the 2013 SIA Show in Denver, CO and Winter Park, CO at the end of January. This is where companies debut all of their new products for next season and allow retailers to demo the gear and decide what they would like to carry for next year. As a huge supporter of Mervin Manufacturing I dedicated a fair amount of my time to their tent. Let me just say this was time well spent. Check out a review on a couple of their new products in this blog.
