Text of Endeavor Snowboards

  • Endeavor Snowboards launched its first series of snowboards in 2002 featuring a full topsheet of carbon fiber. Eleven years on and Endeavor still seeks innovation with research and development at the Archetype Snowboard Lab in Vancouver, Canada. The mandate is simple - make the best riding experience possible! The Archetype Lab develops the future for Endeavor, providing a platform to take an idea to prototype in 24 hours.

    Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. - T.S. Eliot

    Todays Ideas Set Tomorrows Standards.

  • In 2011, Endeavor Snowboards built a prototyping facility in Vancouver called Archetype. This lab was created to build snowboards that would enhance the riding experience. The Archetype Series is Endeavors lightest and is the preferred board on a pow day.

    HOVER CAMBER Camber under foot and reverse camber rise out to the nose contact points, this is a directional version of our successful Multi-Camber. Designed to create maximum lift in the nose while having tons of pop and responsiveness for getting through tight tree lines.

    This is anything but your average snowboard glass. Pulled tight under tension, pressed with heat and infused with the perfect resin to glass ratio, this carbon reinforced laminate completely replaces the heavy plastic top sheet of the board. This shaves 1/2 pound of weight and makes the board one of the most responsive and poppy flexes ever ridden.

    Grown in eastern Canada this wood is so light that it shaves 18% of the weight off a finished snowboard.

    Dark Arts and Black Magic. Thats how these boards are made. So we embraced it with symbols from the occult and fortune telling rendered by hand.

    With a slightly longer nose than the tail, directional boards are designed for all mountain riding and to float in soft snow. Adding a slight taper sinks the tail and raises the nose for effortless float in deep snow conditions, but also makes exiting turns easier on groomed runs.

  • 2014

  • New for 2014, the Clout raises the bar of technological innovation. Pretensioned glass laminates eliminate the traditional cloth reinforcement with the heavy plastic top sheet found in most snowboards. This technology offers any rider the tool to advance their level of riding.

    POP CAMBER Completely flat between the bindings and camber down to the contact points, Pop Camber is designed to give the most energy transfer and pop possible. This camber profile is ideal for jumps and riders that like a fast and snappy board.

    This is anything but your average snowboard glass. Pulled tight under tension, pressed with heat and infused with the perfect resin to glass ratio. This carbon reinforced laminate completely replaces the heavy plastic top sheet of the board. This shaves 8% of weight and makes the board one of the most responsive and poppy flexes ever ridden.

    The rubber sidewall inlay absorbs pressure on impact and minimalizes sidewall damage as well as dampening vibration on hard snow easing leg fatigue.

    The Phantom Wood Core boasts a 15% reduction in weight compared to the Standard Wood Core, making the deck lighter and more responsive.

    The Clout graphic started with this question... If I went down into a secret robot laboratory, what would the stuff down there look like? I think I found the answer.

    The graphic is stripped down and utilitarian. However, the exclusive neon base colour and the unique camouflage spot varnish give it enough black-ops attitude to match the engineering in the board.

    A declassified park/pipe/freestyle weapon, the Clout is not to be underestimated. This board is not for the lazy rider with a hangover.

  • The B.O.D. stands for the Board Of Directors and is the pride and joy of the Endeavor crew. The B.O.D. is a tech-laden board which stands at the pinnacle of performance and design with zero camber, true twin and Dow Tech. Dow Tech at the contact points eliminates edge hook and creates a much looser, fun ride.

    With no pressure on the contact points due to the raised wings, this board feels loose and catch-free like a reverse camber board, however it remains more stable and predictable like a regular camber board.

    Dow-Tech raises the contact points 2mm off the snow creating a ride similar to a reverse camber without loosing the benefits of a camber board.

    An eco-alternative, basalt is the premium aerospace material made from molten basalt and was declassified by the military in 1995. An unparalleled strength-to-weight ratio gives our premium freestyle boards added performance, elasticity, and durability.

    Strategically placed carbon stiffens the board without adding weight and increases the response by adding flex memory and pop.

    All aspects of the five boards including the design on the back of the boards are hand drawn and unique. In total 30 individual illustrations had to be created to complete these boards. The theme was based on futuristic space disaster, mixing skulls of astronauts and fragmented planets, satellites, and space shuttles.

    This deck is used as the standard that snowboards are measured off, with award, after award, after award.

  • The Next Series is a freeriders dream. Taper in the tail allows it to sink slightly, which in turn lifts the nose making pow riding a breeze. Incredible to look at, the satin finished bamboo veneer topsheet serves a functional purpose of stiffening the board without the need of extra glass or carbon. Finished off with a sublimated sintered 7500 base for speed and a Phantom wood core for flex memory and pop.

    With a slightly longer nose than the tail, directional boards are designed for all mountain riding and to float in soft snow. Adding a slight taper sinks the tail and raises the nose for effortless float in deep snow conditions, but also makes exit-ing turns easier on groomed runs.

    A thin veneer of exotic, high-end bamboo creates an amazing aesthetic look while enhancing the flex and strength of the board.

    The Phantom Wood Core boasts a 15% reduction in weight compared to the Standard Wood Core, making the deck lighter and more responsive.

    I wanted to keep the content simple but strong enough to work in harmony with the bamboo top sheet. We used a wide range of color but this time instead of flooding it, the color was overlaid enough to be prevalent but still allow for the grain behind it to show through. Combining that with the content of old gangs, legions and other conjured up products really brings a high quality look to this amazing series.

    The Next is for the rider who lives for pow. It is stiff, responsive, stable, and reliable.
