Cipher Snowboard 2013

When conservatives and liberals collide, usually chaos ensues. However, the Artec Cipher Snowboard seamlessly combines a classic snowboard design with cutting edge tech to give you an extremely versatile, freestyle-focused snowboard. Using a classic camber profile, you get the superior pop and control you grew up with, while the new ComposiTec Beam increases board control and responsiveness. These two technologies, one old-school and one cutting edge, combine to give you a board with unmatched stability and control. The Artec Cipher Snowboard is able to blend conservative style with liberal tech features to provide the best park board around!

Product Details

Rocker Type

HyperTec CamberIncreases responsiveness and pop providing a powerful freestyle platform


Soft / MediumPerfect for freestyle riding: soft enough for buttering while stiff enough for great response


Blunt Twin Tip


SuproTec WoodcoreA perfect blend of Poplar and Aspen provides a lively, responsive and extremely stable ride.


ComposiTec BeamA lightweight composite carbon-Kevlar® reinforcement material adds to the board's torsional stability. This enables the rider to conserve energy and increases control when riding on either edge.

NorTec FiberglassThis stronger laminate allows for thinner wood cores, thus reducing the board's weight. It offers the optimized combination of flex and torsion to give you an ultra-stable and ultra-responsive ride.


TriTEC SidewallsThis is a 30˚ slanted sidewall constructed using two horizontal layers of traditional ABS material to carry power and energy to the board's edge. A visco-elastic layer positioned between those two layers reduces vibrations and increases control.


AlphaTec BaseThe lightest base material known to man is used to create this incredible base. Durable and stone grinded, this is the ultimate gliding surface.

Product Details


UniTec Pro BaseplateA solid one-piece fiberglass-reinforced construction with unique edge bevel offers superior structural integrity, maximum comfort and allows for optimum board flexing. Tool-free adjustable toe ramps puts a perfect boot/binding fit in your hands.

EVA PadsShock absorbing EVA foam material reduces impact energy when hitting bumps and stomping landings.

Disc PaddingDisc padding in the flat-bottom of the binding improves contact between the binding and boots of all sizes and prevents unnecessary foot pain, keeping the outsole 100% flat.


ReacTecArtec straightened and heightened the high back profile, increasing the transfer of energy from the rider's calf to the edge of the board. High back rotation and tool-free forward lean adjustment combine for full adjustability. These changes were designed to give you maximum edge control and power transfer.

Extended Highback EVA PaddingThis offers the rider even more comfort through heelside turns and additionally prevents unwanted pressure points on the calf.


ComforTec StrapAnatomically designed, these straps are pre-shaped to fit over boots perfectly. An Integrated 3D reinforced frame offers secure hold with no pressure points for ultimate performance.

DiTec Toe StrapThis feature adds length options and enhanced comfort and fit to the toe strap ensuring a perfect fit for all kinds of boot toe shapes. Effortless adjustability options allow fine-tuning of the length and pad centering for maximum performance and comfort.
