Production Splitboards with Karakoram Components
Jones Snowboards-Snowboard legend Jeremy Jones has created a brand built around freeride and exploratory snowboarding. Jones is about creating the best premium mountain products through the experiences of exploring both inside and outside resort boundaries and exploring in the backcountry, all the while remaining committed to preserving the environment to the best of our abilities.
Lib Technologies- Trust the pure Banana! Let it be your guide through winter’s crystal promise of stacked and steep as galaxies drift towards inevitable alignment. No line is straight, all points are near, volcanic organic sisters and brothers: touch serrated swords wrought near Canada and join us in our celebration of the final winter of innocence!
GNU- Gnu was created in a hypothermic induced delirium in the early 80’s by Mike Olson who has been building snowboards since 1977. Mike Pioneered deep carving sidecuts and too many other odd things to mention here. Today Mike and Pete still head up Gnu. Of course every Gnu Banana, Magne-traction “joy stick” is handbuilt by the snowboarders with jobs at Mervin Manufacturing in Washington State just like they were in the beginning… now even weirder. Dude what happened last night?
Chimera- (kai-meer-ra) Snow|boards are the first dedicated, splitboard-specific company with every board painstakingly handcrafted, in the US, one-by-one. We are a group of engineers, craftsmen and designers based in the Wasatch who have made splitboarding our lives. From the core elements such as shape, construction and materials, to the little things like colors and hardware, Chimera has re-examined splitboard design to bring you the best boards we can. Chimera’s core principles: to build a splitboard that rides like a snowboard; to build a splitboard that is designed to tour, as well as shred; and to build a board that will inspire your confidence in the backcountry.
Arbor- was founded to design products around the goal of replacing as many environmentally harmful materials as possible, with functional, ecologically based alternatives. The mission is to deliver performance, durability, and style in the most responsible way possible. The result must be quality and reduced environmental impact. Arbor is headquartered in Venice, California.
Signal- was founded in 2004 as an artistic company anchored in snowboarding. The brand’s mission is about a company that believes in making more than just a product. We are about building a community with a much bigger cause— one that includes building our boards and a foundation here at home in California. Signal is a human sized company in an industry of giants and our priorities keep us dedicated to building our community as well as building quality snowboards and other products that enrich our lives.
Winterstick- Wintersticks are being built just as they were 40 years ago, by people in the mountains for people who play in the mountains. Just down the street from Telluride, our GREEN factory is producing the highest quality snowboards that we have ever built. We hand build each snowboard and ship them directly to you. We don’t mass produce boards; we hand make boards that are really nice. The only place you can get Winterstick boards is right here.
Buy Local, Buy Quality and Buy American!
ROXY- It’s a match made in heaven! Roxy’s elegant aesthetics combine with Mervin’s insane technological innovation for an award-winning board series built to celebrate that crucial connection between every girl who loves the snow. Featuring such advanced Mervin technologies as BTX and the all-new C2, Roxy Snow’s got next-level control, serious pop, and ultimate edge hold. Yep, it’s all about sharing and caring around here. We’re a gang, a band of friends, a crew … and as always, that crew includes you.
