Description

Why THE Alfa is for you

THE Alfa is an all-mountain hero that can do everything and is for everyone. It’s built to perform great on all levels, whatever your style or terrain. With THE Alfa, you can explore the entire mountain without compromising. Making turns when going slow feels effortless, and it keeps stable at high speeds, including riding icy slopes. THE Alfa is for all levels (of fun).

Let’s get technical 


Triax Fiberglass has 3 layers, this makes the board more energetic and delivers maximum power transfer to the edges.

1 of 6
A dose of carbon that adds stiffness, liveliness, and more powerful rebound.

Goodwood Lite Core’s mix of woods provide boards stability and a perfect balance between stiffness and flexibility. 3 of 6

Pow Savers are extra inserts to set your bindings back and to transform your board into a powder board.

The finished product is a superstrong, lightweight, and porous base. The porousness holds wax better and longer. Carbon and graphite additives make this base super-fast gliding too. 6 of 6

THE Tech highlights

Edge Lift Technology

Edge Lift Technology

Our boards are 3D pressed with a subtle lift (max. 1.5mm) of the base and edges at the corners. This raises the contact-points just off the snow. With THE Edge Lift Technology, you’re less likely to catch edges when riding. This makes it easier to make turns with more natural turn initiation and exit, you’ll have a smoother ride, more fun to learn new tricks, and it provides extra floatation in the powder.

Multi-Grip Technology

Multi-Grip Technology

Multi-Grip technology means extra contact points on the heel- and toe sides for extra grip in icy conditions. Think of it as snow-chains on your car tires. But Multi-grip technology is extremely subtle at just under 1mm bumps on the edges underneath your binding areas. It’s almost invisible to the naked eye and unnoticeable in softer snow, but it results in smooth rides with extra grip in harder snow.

THE Shape

Looking sideways: Cam Rock.
The Alfa has camber under the bindings and flat in between for stability and pop, without being too aggressive. The Alfa also has rocker in the nose and tail for easy turn initiation and exit. This wavy curved shape gives THE Alfa its versatility. It doesn’t focus on any specific terrain, but excels everywhere.

Looking down: Directional Twin.The nose and tail shape are the same in both directions, but the nose is longer than the tail because you’re standing a little back from the center. This makes THE Alfa very all-round, stable at any speed, and easy to turn.

If you’ve been riding for a while, you’ll know there are a lot of unique words and phrases used. Same goes when choosing the right board, but no worries, we’ve got your back. Discover below what all those flashy terms mean.

THE Alfa

A lightweight two- and three layer fiberglass wrap that provides strength. Fiberglass is a durable material that increases board life.

Triax Fiberglass has 3 layers, the main one is woven lengthwise (0º) and the 2 additional layers are woven at 30º angles. This makes the board more energetic and delivers maximum power transfer to the edges. Learn more

Stringers reinforce our boards. Made from original materials that have unique qualities. Our Stringers are placed at very specific areas on our boards in order to create the desired advantage.

A dose of carbon that adds stiffness, liveliness, and more powerful rebound. The stringers direct energy into focussed areas of the board. The Carbon Stringers provide stability at high speeds and maneuverability at low speeds. While the V-shaped stringers in nose and tail direct power to the contact points of the edges for optimum edge grip. Learn more

Our Carbon-Kevlar-Basalt stringers are made of three types of awesomeness. Carbon adds stiffness and more rebound, while Kevlar provides durability and dampening at high speed. Basalt, which is volcanic rock, provides strength. Basalt is also environmentally friendly, sustainable, and did we already mention it’s made from volcanoes? Learn more

THE Goodwood Lite Core comprises four different FSC certified woods: Beech, Paulownia, Poplar and Spruce.

Beech is a hardwood that provides stiffness. Paulownia is very lightweight, but almost as strong as hardwood. Poplar wood is a highly sought-after material for snowboards. It’s semi-hard, strong and flexible. Flexible spruce grows comparatively fast, making it also the environmentally better choice. Learn more

Pow Savers are extra inserts to set your bindings back and to transform your board into a powder board. When using the Pow Savers, your board’s nose will be longer and the tail shorter, meaning it’s much easier lifting the nose.

You’ll be glad for them when you wake up, and outside it’s covered in a fresh coat of powder. It also avoids back-leg burners and nose-dive cartwheels. Learn more

A lightweight two- and three layer fiberglass wrap that provides strength. Fiberglass is a durable material that increases board life.

Biax Fiberglass is woven lengthwise (0º) and at a 90º angle with the board, providing longitudinal stiffness with torsional forgiveness, for a stable and smooth feeling and easy turning. Learn more

The Graphite Carbon Sintered Base layer is made from crushed polyethylene pellets and pieces of carbon and graphite. By crushing them under high pressure, rather than melting, tiny gaps or pores are created.

The finished product is a superstrong, lightweight, and porous base. The porousness holds wax better and longer. Carbon and graphite additives make this base super-fast gliding too. Learn more
