Endeavor Snowboards 2012-2013

20 Mar, 2012


10 years is quite an accomplishment but for Endeavor it’s only the beginning. They’ve had challenges, they’ve been tested and they’ve fought through it. Snowboarder owned and operated, Endeavor Snowboards is still closed on a powder day. They’ve taken their dreams to new levels with the Archetype Snowboard Lab for R&D, new ideas and the capabilities to make, test and validate new innovation.

For 2013, Endeavor has a range of profiles for riders to choose from. The Super camber for stored energy, traditional camber for true performance, zero camber for the best of both worlds, reverse camber for a more fun ride and multi camber for fun float and a hook free ride.

Endeavor New Standard Series

Engineered fun. The first child of the Archetype R&D lab, the goal was simple: to create a completely new style of board that is stable yet loose, aggressive yet fun and soft yet poppy. Wider than the average deck, this board is designed to be ridden 3-4cm shorter than the typical board and the brand new DT2 technology will make sure that it will never hook an edge. Features zero camber w/DT2 and flat kicked nose and tail, poplar wood core, mid wide, carbon beams, extruded 1320 base, rubber inlays, insert retention, one year warranty, dowtech 2, biax, stitched sidewalls, factory wax and rail ready tune. Flex=6/10.

Sizes: 145, 148, 151, 154

Endeavor Live Series

The perfect specimen. This year marks the 10th year that the Live Series has been a part of the Endeavor line-up, so we wanted to make it the best to date. Featuring a sublimated and sintered 7500 base for speed and color brilliance, carbon double beams for pop, a direct printed TPU topsheet to show every single tiny detail of it’s art, the Live is ready for another 10 years as everyone’s favorite go-to board. Features directional twin shape, traditional camber, carbon beams, phantom core, biax, sintered 7500 base, insert retention, one year warranty, wide available, negative core profile, stitched sidewalls, factory wax and tune. Flex=6/10.

Sizes: 148, 151, 153, 156, 157W, 159, 161W, 163

Endeavor Live Reverse Series

The perfect specimen, in RC. In it’s 10th year as one of the best sellers in the Endeavor line-up, the live RC is the mellower and more rider friendly brother to the live regular camber. Reverse between the bindings and flat rise out to the contact points, this directional twin is the board that everyone can ride and have fun on. Features directional twin shape, 6mm reverse camber, sintered 7500 base, carbon beams, phantom core, biax, sintered 7500 base, insert retention, one year warranty, wide available, negative core profile, stitched sidewalls, factory wax and tune.

Endeavor Live and Live RC

Endeavor Next Series

It’s tough on the streets. If park laps and rails are the riders forte, the Color is their board. New stance widths for 2013 allow bigger stances on the shorter boards in the line.

    Well Gord, although Endeavor Snowboards are a Vancouver based snowboard company their boards appear to be produced in Asia. Reviews on the 2013 BOD are still pending however there appears to be a less informative review on the 2012 BOD available on Youtube.
