Amplid on the Forum

Hi Snowboarding Forumers,

Amplid::: next level riding here. We've been keeping an eye on this forum for a few years to keep a check on what dedicated snowboarders want from their boards and get some inspiration for future products. We thought it would be cool to join the conversation and get some two way feedback going.

Prost!
Amplid Team

Yeah Krato, we're digging flat kicks for park and pipe because it really helps maximise effective edge on short board lengths but it's all about drawn-out eliptical tips for pow and all-mountain... get the board planing not ploughing. Horses for courses, but we're a small and flexible brand and Amplid's owner Peter is obsessed with shape experimentation so we're constantly tinkering with new tip shapes.

Nope we don't do Kids boards at the moment. We can't compete with the likes of Burton and K2 who do a great job and who bring the price in on the money. I guess our niche is product finish and our tech/r&d story and kids/parents aren't so bothered about that. It would be really great to see kids on our decks... maybe in the future.

Cool, thanks for letting me know, if you want to do some R&D in that department i have a wonderful 7 year old who would be willing to be a guinea pig for you over here in Norway...

Yeah figuring out a good eliptical for that transition is golden. Though I've noticed after hopping on a sleepy stevens mid season that having those diagonal carbon load bars bring a ton of perks.

If I could design a deck though, it would be flat slightly past the inserts with a lesser angular reverse camber that becomes flat as well, while the elliptical for that flat-flat transition be weighted more in slope towards the reverse. All while having diagonal pop rods in conjunction with a base pattern conentrating on strength and responsiveness on the edges of the eliptical for the flat(base) half of the elipical.

You guys have a dream job, getting to play around with this stuff.
