  • 2014 Bataleon Snowboards

    Posted on February 21, 2013 by admin

    The 2014 Bataleon line has debuted! It may just be us but something about the "Whatever" reminds us of a small town in Colorado with some obscene cartoon children... Either way, it's a sick looking line. The "Omni" is the board to the left of Kenn... I mean the orange brown and white "Whatever" and the Goliath is the one next to Sta... well you get the picture. If you don't get the reference don't worry, the boards look great regardless of what you make of the graphics, and you're sure to get a high-five or two on the chairlift.

    From left to right these are the Goliath, Omni and Camel Toe. And for those who feel pictures simply won't suffice, we included a video for your viewing pleasure. Needless to say, we're pretty excited for this line.

  • Splitboarding, is it for you?

    Posted on November 20, 2012 by admin

    By now many of those engrained in the snowboard culture have come across the newest form of the sport: splitboarding. Designed for those hiking for their turns and constantly searching for fresh lines, splitboarding has been taking the industry by storm. The concept is fairly simple. Take a snowboard, cut it down the middle, add a metal edge, install clips to hold the board together, and suddenly you have both a set of skis and a snowboard. Putting the board to use is a little more interesting. When you un-clip the board you are left with essentially two skis. A skin is then placed on each "ski" allowing the ski to grip to the snow rather than slide. You can now use your grippy skis to start hiking to whatever terrain your heart desires, no snow shoes needed. When you reach your desired drop in point take the skins off the skis, clip them back together to make your snowboard and you're almost set. All you have to do now is set the bindings up. Splitboards use a special binding that allows it to swivel and work as a ski binding when hiking and then pivot so they can be used as snowboard bindings when you're ready to take off down the mountain. This allows you to bring less gear, more quickly switch from hiking mode to riding mode and even makes for easier hiking.

    If you're constantly finding yourself in the backcountry and looking for a new way to go about it, you may just want to look into the sport. Many companies have begun producing splitboard versions of some of their bigger mountain boards. We strive to always carry a few here at Wiredsport and you can find our current selection here.

  • Niche Eco Snowboards

    Posted on November 10, 2012 by admin

    The most environmentally friendly boards have arrived at Wiredsport thanks to ISPO Award winning Niche Snowboards. In an industry that so heavily depends on mother nature and cold snowy winters Niche decided to carve out a role in the snowboard world. They build boards in a way that protect and preserve the snow capped mountains we shred all winter. Oh and did we mention that the products and methods they use to do so actually make many of their boards more durable and responsive than traditional boards? They also just so happen to have the license to Mervin Manufacturing's gift to the snowboard world: Magnetraction! So just what is it that makes Niche one of the most interesting and environmentally conscious snowboard companies on the market? Here's a breakdown of some of the tech they use.

    Digi Print Top Sheets: Most snowboard makers cover their topsheets in a thick, toxic lacquer to add shine. This is not only toxic to the environment; it’s unhealthy for people working in the factory. Digi-Print uses a lacquer-free topsheet material that’s also thinner than most snowboard topsheets. This cuts down on excess material and makes your board lighter. Niche digitally prints directly onto the topsheet, cutting up to 60% of the material and 75% of the energy wasted during alternate printing processes.

    Snappy Sap Bio Resin: Traditional resins can be extremely toxic to people and the environment. Niche snowboards partnered with Entropy Resins to create a one-of-a-kind, Snappy Sap™ Bio-Resin. As opposed to traditional epoxies made primarily of petroleum-based materials, Snappy Sap™ Bio-Resin is composed of bio-renewable materials from the industrial waste streams of the paper pulp and bio-fuels industry.This adds more pop and spring to the board, and provides super high adhesion properties to help keep your board from delaminating!

    Magma Fiber: The majority of the snowboard industry uses fiberglass in board construction. Niche has eliminated fiberglass, replacing it with Magma Fiber™ crafted from basalt. Basalt is the product of volcanic activity. The fiberization process is more environmentally safe than that of glass fiber; the greenhouse gases that might otherwise be released during fiber processing were released eons ago during the magma eruption. Basalt is also 100% inert, which means it has no toxic reaction with air or water, and is noncombustible. Plus it is far lighter weight, provides increased tensile strength and doesn't absorb water. This leaves the board lighter, stronger and longer lasting.

    Hemphop Stringers: Most boards use carbon stringer to add extra pop to a board. Carbon uses lots of energy to process and releases half of its weight in CO2 and other pollutants when manufactured. Hemp is an awesome eco-substitute, as it is one of the most versatile, fastest growing crops in existence, requiring very little pesticides and no herbicides! It is so similar in characteristics, durability, and strength to carbon that companies including BMW and Mercedes are using it to replace carbon in their cars! It also provides extra dampening to reduce board chatter while you ride.

    Niche also uses recycled materials in almost every other part of the snowboard construction. The results are some of the strongest, longest lasting, and highest performing boards on the market. And all while winning a prestigious ISPO award in Eco Responsibility. So if you are looking to ride one of the best boards on the market, and help protect the winters we all love, then Niche may just be the next snowboard for you.
