Technology

OVERVIEW

All Snoplanks are constructed with a solid bamboo core that is laminated with fiberglass and carbon fiber for strength and responsiveness. The taper and flex are unique to Snoplanks as the core is seamless from tip to tail creating a high performance product with increased float and pop in all conditions. The camber profiles and shapes of Snoplanks provide superior turning ability in the steep and deep and can be ridden slightly shorter than your normal setup due to these characteristics. These boards and skis are truly unlike any other currently on the market in both construction as well as feel.

BY RIDERS FOR RIDERS

Rider driven innovation has been and continues to be a key element in steering the course of SnoPlanks shapes and construction. All SnoPlanks are tested and proven in a wide variety of terrain and conditions and approved by our team prior to release.  Our ambassadors provide us with feedback this can be immediately infused into the production process to make our boards and skis, more high performance and innovative than any other product on the market. This is the advantage of being a manufacturer and not simply a supplier. We are able to constantly innovate and progress because we make everything by hand in the USA.

ENVIRONMENTAL 

With every plank we strive to be as environmentally sound as possible. Sustainable bamboo, entropy resin, and naturally sourced finishing oils give us both a high end product and a product that has a smaller carbon footprint. In addition scrap materials are utilized to make skateboards in the summer months in a collaborative effort with legendary shaper and surfer Gerry Lopez. 

Snoplanks proudly supports Protect Our Winters and gives a portion of every sale back to their organization in order to assist in the efforts to fight global climate change.
