SIA Day 1 Recap
Well unless you live under a rock or just don’t care about next years snowboard gear then you know it’s the annual pilgrimage to Denver for the annual SIA trade show. If you follow the site on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram then you’ve probably seen the countless updates that I’ve posted over the course of the first day. If not here’s a slight recap of what you missed.
Sims now made in North American in Quebec by one of the original guys that worked with Tom Sims back in the day when they were made there. Can anyone guess what that ribbed technology is? Hint it’s patented and took 16 years to perfect.
Now Snowboard bindings you know you’ve been curious, you might have speculated, hell you don’t even know what they are. Well relax I checked them out and honestly the concept is sound and the binding is built exceptionally well.
Dye Optics yes the same ones that make the paintball face masks and stuff. For a first year company they’re solid.
Endeavor Board of Directors fired up the flux capacitator and took you back to the past with these graphics.
Flow‘s got cap straps now.
Yep 686 made snowboards.
The Venture no split.
