Snowboarding, at its core, is an art form. It's a sensation, a self-expression, an escape from both the chaos and mundaneness of life. The lines you draw down the mountain, the excitement of changing conditions, the communities of people you ride with -- these are what make snowboarding so great. Whether you're sitting atop an untouched powder run or an unblemished groomer, the only laws that dictate how you get down are those laid out by Mother Nature. How you make it to the bottom is up to your creativity and the turns you make are the brush strokes you paint with. Snowboard design has returned to it's roots, with the art of the turn at the forefront, emphasized by an influx of trench-laying directional camber boards and surf-inspired shapes. At evo, we're calling this The Art of the Turn -- a step in the right direction towards smooth, creative, and timelessly euphoric carves.

In an industry that uses wood, epoxy and fiberglass as its building blocks, while also being reliant on cold temperatures and precipitation, sustainable and eco-friendly construction methods are quickly gaining in both popularity and recognition. Green-construction leader Mervin Mfg (Lib Tech, GNU, Roxy) and its Sequim, WA factory has an industry-leading track record of ingenious, low-waste manufacturing like Bio Beans topsheets, Eco Sub printing and recycled sidewalls. Across the Atlantic, CAPiTA's new "Mothership" factory offers a cutting-edge building that runs entirely off of hydropower. Like Mervin, CAPiTA takes every opportunity to use advanced recycling and production techniques from the likes of water-based inks, plant-based resin and solvent-less finishing. Other brands like Burton and Niche have also joined the movement, using a new epoxy called ReRez, which allows shaping fall-off and end-of-life boards to be fully deconstructed for effective material re-use. By choosing eco-friendly constructions we can help offset the impacts of our favorite winter pastime.

Slim is in, fam! And no, we're not talking about your waistline. Beyond the obvious reduction in weight, these sleek boot and binding profiles have a truer flex and connection that offers better board feel and responsiveness. What's more, low profile snowboard boots typically have an outsole footprint that's a whole size less than traditional boot lasts from a few years ago; in other words, you may be able to size your bindings down! Toe and heel drag were sooo 2016!
