Roxy Snowboards 2010-2011

05 Mar, 2010


Welcome to the world of Roxy, where women rip and design the boards that other women ride. It’s a new generation of riders, designers and a factory known as Mervin Manufacturing that builds them. Roxy caught me by surprise a couple years ago  when I first stepped on a Roxy board and since then, every board I’ve ridden is a breath of fresh air for female snowboarders.

For 10-11 the women get C2 technology in big ways, three models receive reverse camber for a mixture of riding styles from freeriding to park, aggressive to playful. Those models are the eminence, envi and ollie pop. BTX continues on with the Ally and something new in store the silhouette B, Sugar B and Inspire B all feature Banana (without the traction) meant to make learning easier for beginner to intermediate riders linking turns at slower speeds with catch-free riding.

    hi shay,
    i’m fairly new to snowboarding and in need of some help. i just bought the roxy ally, with tnt-base. i’m wondering, what i should do with waxing. how often should i wax it and with what kind of a wax. i’d like to be environment friendly. are “green” waxes any good?

    roxy’s web site (or mervin’s, gnu’s or lib tech’s) didn’t offer any help…

    thanks in advance,
    emma.

    Emma, great question on waxing! I think it’s a good choice to wax the board every couple days of riding. You could definitely go with greener waxes and just pick them per your riding weather conditions. Cold wax on cold days, warm wax for slushy warm conditions and all mountain for a mix. I generally stick with all mountain wax for my personal boards.

    Hi there,

    I really love the Roxy Silhouette 2011 board (peacock design) & wondered if you can help advise what size because some people say 141 others say 146.
    I’m just under 5’3 120lbs & US size 7 boot.
    I held a 141 up to me & it comes to the middle of my mouth (I can kiss the top!). The 146 comes to the bridge of my nose.
    I will be riding on piste (no parks at all) & am intermediate/beginner, like speed but not tooooo fast, mainly just a leisurely rider & happy with that as I’m not a daredevil!
    My instructor says this is a good board for me but I’m just confused on size.
    Ps I know it’s an old board but I have located some for sale. Thanks muchly!

      Hi Amba! So the old way of holding a board up to your chin is not the right way to find a board size. It’s decided more on weight, riding style and experience. Height plays little into board size. Since you aren’t riding parks, weigh 120lbs and are more off-piste, I would definitely go for atleast the 146cm. The 141 is way too small for your weight.
