Deep Snow Pleasures

Regular price $899.00 Sale price $799.00

"WNDR Alpine's widest ski is one that, unsurprisingly, really shines in deep conditions, but with a level of adaptability that is rare among ~120mm-wide skis." - Blister Review

Light enough for a big day of human-powered access and agile enough to get the most out of any terrain, The Reason 120 is the shape for the days we all dream of. A girthy 120mm waist width provides effortless buoyancy in the deepest and lightest powder, while a spry 20m turn radius keeps the Reason easy to manage in tight terrain. The Reason’s Algal Core and Algal Wall work in conjunction to provide added stability and torsional stiffness to the platform, enabling it to be driven hard through variable snow. All in all, the Reason is a ski dedicated to deep snow pleasures that still shines in less-than-primo conditions.

OUR COMPONENTS

Algal Core

Algal Core is a vertically laminated composite of biobased high density polyurethane and domestically sourced aspen. This combination reduces weight and offers damping properties otherwise unattainable in solid wood core construction while remaining stable and intuitive to ride. Polyurethane biobased carbon content 41% by ASTM D6866-18 Method B.

Algal Wall

Algal Wall is a biobased cast polyurethane sidewall that protects the Algal Core and delivers better damping than a traditional, petroleum based ABS sidewall. Unlike traditional manufacturing techniques, we use a channel in the outside of the core as a mold for pouring in the liquid sidewall material. This creates a virtually seamless and unbreakable bond with the aspen as the sidewall hardens, increasing the overall structural integrity of the snowboard. This novel manufacturing technique diverts plastic waste from the landfill compared to traditional use of extruded plastic sidewalls. Polyurethane biobased carbon content ~68% by ASTM D6866-18 Method B.

Spiral Plate

Spiral Plate binding insert outperforms our traditional maple inserts in pullout strength testing conducted in house, resulting in better binding screw retention and enabling a more even, longitudinal flexing ski. SpiralMade™ materials are made using waste from our production process in Salt Lake City, diverting materials that would otherwise go straight to the landfill and using them to boost product performance.
