If you’re an avid snowboarder, it’s vital that you know what the best products are to purchase. You want to have the highest quality for your equipment so that it’ll last through all of your snowboarding adventures. I’ve compiled a list of some of the highlights from Transworld Snowboarding’s Hyped List. You could even use this gear at the awesome ski resorts in Iowa! Check out the link to see even more products that are being eagerly anticipated.
This company, Mizu, was founded just a few years ago by Jussi Oksanen, who’s incredibly pro-snowboarding. The company takes a stance against single-use water bottles and the grave damage they do to the environment, so Mizu has created this durable, quality water bottle. Transworld Snowboarding even teamed up with Mizu to create a limited edition bottle! Some highlights include: BPA free stainless steel and a vacuum insulated and double walled container. It also has a lifetime warranty.
An in-house tester referred to this snowboard as a “game-changer”. Kevlar stringers allow this board to remain lightweight but also keep the awesome build of a Bataleon board. Other small features that enhance the performance of the board are an indent toward the nose and a slight uptilt toward the tail. This board is fairly flexible and great for directional riders!
GoPro dominates the scene of self-filming cameras. These cameras have quickly become a favorite of snowboarders. Various attachments exist that easily hold the camera and allow you to film your ride. The newest camera in the HERO line possesses some awesome features: one button that turns on the camera and immediately begins recording, along with an even more compact size. It’s also waterproof and has the best battery life of the GoPro cameras.
One of the most important pieces of equipment for a snowboarder is his boots. The new snow boots from Rome give a nod toward tough, classic style instead of boots that are designed to be more stylish than practical. These boots have sturdy leather and a Vibram sole, but also various modern aspects, such as an Ultra F.I.T. liner and Boa lacing system. These incredible boots will definitely prove their worth!
These Ovan goggles are guaranteed to combine style and practicality since the company was founded by Alex Lundqvist, a fashion enthusiast, and Bjorn Leines, a snowboarding legend. The goggles are unisex and constructed of recycled material that makes them incredibly light. Dual lenses work together to prevent the sun’s reflection on snow from blinding you while also increasing visibility in lower-light environments.
