KEY TECH STORIES
Exchanging bad vibes with no vibes.
Antiphase™ is a brand-new technology, developed in-house, which reduces vibrations improving stability. Unlike conventional dampening, which relies on rubber elastomers to reduce vibrations, Antiphase™ is a multidirectional composite layer bonded to a non-Newtonian material, which is placed between the board’s or ski’s tip and binding. It disrupts the natural frequency of the snowboard, stopping vibrations, which otherwise amplify and end-up as tip chatter, from propagating through the construction.
DIRECTIONAL CRUISE CAMBER
Any brand that promises to deliver the lightest, most durable shreds on the market needs an ace up its sleeve. HEXO2 is Amplid’s ace, but strictly speaking it’s more like having a Royal flush in-hand than a plain old ace. Honeycomb inserts are placed in carefully selected areas is the tips and between the bindings of our snowboards, minimising swing weight, without negatively effecting durability.
Occasionally it’s necessary to shave weight off any way possible: Topless Tanga Technology is a partial topsheet which is applied to the upper carbon laminate with a top secret adhesion process. The tough material prevents unwanted chipping around the tips caused by touring. Carbon’s aesthetic is raw and imperfect, but since a topsheet adds an extra 250grams, we’d rather go without.
3D CRUST BUSTER NOS
Amplid’s skis and snowboards feature various Carbon, Basalt and Titinal configurations to dial-in the feel and performance. Whether it’s the damp, fatigue busting effect of Basalt or the snappy pop of Carbon Stringers, we apply these materials in exactly the right quantities, in targeted locations, to deliver the ultimate riding experience.Featured in Amplid’s new Surfari and Millisurf Split, we have curled up the edge along the nose, from the zero contact point towards the tip. Thanks to this new 3D-shaped nose geometry in combination with our elliptic nose cavity you will experience a new dimension of floatation and turn initiation. The nose feels “surfier” and more forgiving, it pops up the tip and your stance will be more central - without any back thigh burner.
JEKYLL & HYDE GEOMETRY
JHG is the concept behind Amplid’s latest generation of ski and snowboard shapes. Experimenting with dimensions like surface area and effective edge has resulted in shreds which deliver performance beyond expectation. Powder boards with big board floatation and the manoeuvrability of a jib board; all-mountain skis which finally deliver on that promise; these shapes have to be ridden to be believed!
