The 2012/13 season is right around the corner. These are our top three, highly anticipated boards from our favorite manufacturers including Burton, Ride, and K2. Next week we’re featuring three more boards from three different brands. All of these boards can currently be found on BuySnow.com and are ready to ship today.
- Burton – 2013 Custom Flying V
- Juiced up and ready for lift-off, the Custom Flying V™ continues as the benchmark all other boards are compared to. The one-board answer for all terrain, its proven design improves power, pop, and handling with evolutions like Squeezebox and Lightning Bolts to energize the ride. Available in two versions, riders like Mikkel Bang can get the best of both worlds with the hybrid Flying V, or be like Nicolas Müller and stick with the precise control of camber.
All mountain freestyle chargers will benefit from the new versatile Hybrid LowRizeTM shape designed with the playful LowRizeTM rocker in the tip and tail, and the responsive level micro-camber zone under foot. By moving the carbon to the outside edge of the board they are maximizing the response, grip and stability, making this twin ideal for going big while maintaining an all around playful feel.
The 2012/2013 K2 Happy Hour is the result of K2 leaving their team alone to do what they want with each and every element of this all-new deck. A bit scary really. We are lucky no one was hurt. But, the end result is the most bizarro, genius fun board the K2 team has ever ridden.
