Snowboard Volkl AFC

Note: The actual colour of the board's base may be different than the one shown on the picture. Brands make them randomly.

Make room for Volkl’s AFC, a snowboard featuring the All-Mountain Freestyle Camber. Behind that name hides a subtle blend of tip to tail camber with small rocker in the nose. You will also notice that there is a fish tail on the board, it brings added manoeuvrability and control on variable snow conditions. 

What can the Volkl AFC snowboard do? 

Why should you chose between piste and powder when you can have both with just one board? The AFC delivers an excellent edge grip on the hardpack and benefits from a stiff flex to carve with speed and precision. The board rails into turns with ease and stays locked in without washing out. But it’s also a great freeride board, the rocker maximises its floatation on the deep and provides tons of agility. You can run on and off piste within the same day and find new untouched spots with your mates. And why not shape a kicker in the backcountry, that would just be another way to have fun! 

Who is the Volkl AFC snowboard designed for? 

This all-mountain snowboard is best suited for advanced riders looking for an all-terrain vehicle that floats pow as well as it rips groomers. The AFC is pretty easy to manage and steers effortlessly. Highly recommended.

Snow Binding Union Force Black

You may not be a jedi, we still wish the Force to be with you. Union continues to make this iconic binding for 2017 and it would have been a shame if they’d dropped it. Featuring a Stage 4 chassis made of Duraflex ST, the binding is extremely responsive and remains incredibly light. The aluminium heelcup and the high-end magnesium buckles do nothing to make this binding heavier but they do make it stronger. The most difficult thing with the Force Black is to choose the colour that matches your jacket don’t you think? 

What can the Union Force Black snowboard binding do? 

This snowboard binding is as versatile as it is comfortable. Terrains and conditions don’t matter as long as there is snow involved. The Force Black is a precise and responsive binding allowing riders to carve neat arcs on groomers at warp speed or to surf powder like a lord and stomp pillows with style and ease. Freestyle, freeride, it’s all the same, the Force Black is tweakable thanks to a good lateral flex and it is supportive thanks to a stiff medial one. Combined with well finished straps, the binding holds on the boot perfectly and transfers your energy while it absorbs vibrations and reduces impacts. 

Who is the Union Force Black snowboard binding designed for? 

No need to know how to swing a lightsaber to manage the Force, but you do need riding skills. Advanced snowboarders should get on well with the binding. It offers versatility and responsiveness, it remails ultra light and the SonicFuse straps are so comfortable it almost feels like there are none.
