The 2018 Snowboard Gear Preview Thread

Just when you were starting to get used to 2017....

Yup, we are just back from our WWSRA trade show here in Portland Oregon and the 2018 goodness is looking EPIC. 25 years of trade shows and..new snowboarding gear still gets the heart racing. So STOKED!

As usual we snapped off a load of images that we will update to this thread. Let's call this the first installment.

First off, the new Gnu MÜLLAIR is sick looking! I can't draw, but if I could, I would draw that.



Addidas double BOA.



Flux is bringing there boots to North America. This is an amazingly refined looking product. Sample sizes only so no try on info yet.



Loving Capita's new Outer Space Living.



Digging Jones' new Mountain Twin. Whoulda thunk mountains would look so good on a snowboard?



Burton Skeleton Key. Yup.



Burton is all in for step-in - whoops! - step-on for 2018. All other factors aside I can tell yo that the boots and bindings are an impressively light weight (weight being one of the more common complaints with earlier step-in systems).

The black one could be, seems like a asian theme like the koi fish from this year, but I don't know. Then again, that could be the Outer Space Living that was mentioned, but that dragon doesn't seem to match that theme. I have already started saving for either the Kazu or the Skeleton Key. I hope the SK isn't all hype. From what little I have found on the Kazu, people seem to love it, but I don't know anyone that owns it. From what even less I have found about the SK, I still know nothing about it other than 1 or 2 site reviews and the hype.

Yeah me too. Lack of reviews makes me more curious to try either one. Might jump on the current Kazu if the price moves south a bit. Skeleton Key, I prefer the current colorway but doubtful I'll find it discounted.

I went for the branch manager over the SK but I might get the 2018 SK as I really dig that top sheet!

I really thought quicksand was going to be a much bigger issue in my life when I was little
