Unity Snowboards 2012-2013

11 Apr, 2012


Unity Snowboards has been building snowboards in the heart of the Rocky Mountains since 1995 and continues to develop boards built for everything you want to ride. From big mountain peaks to splitboarding outside the boundaries to riding the perfect pipes, Unity handcrafts their boards in Colorado just minutes from the mountains they ride.

For 2013, Unity continues with the Whale model with a wide nose and shorter effective edge, it’s meant for powder but can handle the groomers.  The Dominion, Pride, Origin, Reverse and Virgo are back with some updates in store.  Unity also continues with splitboards on the dominion, reverse and whale snowboards.

Unity Whale

The Whale boards are a new type of surf style freeride board. On these shapes we moved the wide point on the nose of the board back to match where the nose rocker starts. This makes the board initiate a turn quicker than a normal shaped board with nose rocker. New this year is float rocker that lifts the nose of the board up about 2cm at the end of the effective edge. Features full length vertically laminated wood core, bulletproof sintered p-tex sidewall, trizaz finished 2001 durasurf sintered base.

Sizes: 160, 167

Features full length vertically laminated wood core, bulletproof sintered P-tex sidewall, trizac finished 4001 durasurf sintered base.

Unity Pride (not pictured)

THe Pride is the ultimate do-it-all directional freestyle board. Directional in shape and flex, this board is great for freeriding and it’s deep radial sidecuts make it great for riding the park or pipe. This year’s Pride boards has a carbon fiber X design across the body of the board. This X creates more response and snap. Overall it gives the board a very lively feel. Features full length vertically laminated wood core, bulletproof sintered P tex sidewall, trizac finished 2001 durasurf sintered base.
