Paradigma– We sharpened our Swiss Army Knife
Amplid’s all-mountain wonder board returns with an even more explosive personality.
This year, Amplid’s R&D team stripped back the Paradigma to its outline shape and asked themselves; “What does an intermediate snowboarder need to take their riding to the next level?”. The answer was more board control and stability.
New Cruise Camber has half the depth of Amplid’s POP Camber. This ‘half-fat’ camber distributes pressure evenly along the Paradigma’s edge very efficiently; the result is surprisingly good edge hold in a snowboard with a forgiving nature. A touch of early rise in the nose eliminates any catchiness when on a flat base and boosts its powder shredding credentials.
Using the ‘Targeted Composite Application’ philosophy, Amplid enhanced the Paradigma’s best characteristics. Carbon stringers were added along the centreline magnifying its pop. Basalt Suspension Strips, which are visible through the topsheet, guarantee that the Paradigma remains cool, calm and collected in variable snow conditions.
The Paradigma’s ability to slay park, pipe, piste and powder grant it certified ‘Quiver Killer’ status.
