Unity Snowboards 2010-2011

06 Mar, 2010


Unity Snowboards is one of those snowboard companies building and riding boards in the US and based out of Silverthorne, Colorado they have  a handful of mountains outside their backdoor.  They’ve grown their line from freeride to park and continue to advance each of their models over the years.  Unity is very much the small snowboard company but it gives you a refreshing look at how a company should be, Pete is out riding the products and when you talk to Unity you never worry about who to talk to.  Chances are if you watched the Grand Prix or Dew Tour this year you would have seen three riders throwing down on Unity Snowboards in the superpipe, finally giving Unity some recognition they deserve for their hardwork.

For 10-11, Unity expands reverse camber into their lineup with the Reverse, Dominion with a freeride powder rockered nose and the women’s Virgo.  Unity’s Reverse and Virgo feature 2mm of camber between the feet and 6mm of reverse camber from the feet towards the nose/tail giving.

    I really enjoyed riding the Unity Dominion, and I was trying to see if someone could give me a detailed comparison between the Unity Dominion and the Unity Reverse. I’m looking for the best freeride board between both. Thanks
