Launch Snowboards 2012-2013

04 Jul, 2012


Launch Snowboards has taken a dream and turned it into reality. They strive to improve all things snowboarding, they recognize the snowboard progression and continue to shred with no boundaries. For 2012, they offer a range of boards for men and women.

For technology, Launch keeps it simple with true twin and directional twin shapes. The cores vary from an eco friendly renew core, pop core made of 100% poplar, P-pop core for pop and support with poplar and bamboo and the S-pop core for strength and support where you need it. The Launch Dampening System absorbs the shock and gives you stability on the mountain.

This is only a portion of the snowboard line-up, not every board is featured.
