Akomplice x Ride Snowboards

January 6th, 2015



Based on a mutual reverence for the outdoors makes Ride Snowboards and us fitting collaborators. Even more fitting is the products we are offering, which includes technical products suited for the snow as well as apparel designed for all-terrain use. From a flannel-lined 5 panel complete with ear flaps, to an asymmetrical snowboard dubbed “The Helix,” the Akomplice x Ride Snowboard collection was developed with the complete journey in mind. From stepping out the front door to stepping in at the mountain’s peak we have you covered. In addition to a weather-proof jacket, the collection includes a hearty buffalo check flannel shirt, whose pattern extends to t-shirts, crew necks, and even the lining of the varsity down jacket. Our signature touches also grace “The Helix” snowboard in the form of magical plants that adorn both the board’s top and underside. Developed with ergonomics in mind, the board’s shape is based on the asymmetry of the human body. The collaborative boots make use of proprietary technology dubbed Slime Tongue™, which allows for enhanced forward flex. See below for further technical details about the gear available now at Ride’s Webshop. The apparel collection is also available now on our webstore. Check more photos out of the collab after the jump.
