I believe they're part of Atomic and they've been around about ten years or so.

I beleive they are better known for their alpine carving boards that you use hard boots and plate bindings with. Other than that I haven't seen or heard much about them.

They're more so an entry level company now. If you only get out a couple times a season, they're "good" for that. But if you go out alot, there are better places to put your money, IMO.

Yeah, I used to own an Oxygen board. I knew then that it was a pretty basic board. It lasted me two seasons surprisingly with moderate use (once a week). If you are looking at Oxygen I would compare them with the Lamars of the market. They aren't that great but they WORK...at least for a while. Hope this helps!

There was a time when Oxygen was the shit, much like Lamar, Sims, Avalanche, Liquid etc. If I remember correctly they were bought out by another comapany and it was all downhill from there. I haven't heard or seen much of them in about 4-5yrs though.
