Artec Cipher Snowboard Package 2013
"The Cipher is my number one choice for bringing it to the mountain! Park, slopes or backcountry, this board suites me anywhere! The HyperTec camber gives me the support that I need when riding big kickers but it's still playful in the park and shreds for rails and smaller features. It has mad pop, which I can't live without, and the stability to stomp anything. The Cipher is my anywhere charger!" - Kalle Ohlson
2012-2013 Artec Cipher Men's Snowboard Key Features:
HyperTec Camber - HyperTec camber increases responsiveness and pop, providing a powerful freestyle platform. The board has continuous camber from profile mid-point to on snow contact points.
SuproTec Wood Core - Vertically laminated tip-to-tail wood core. This lively, responsive and extremely stable core features a perfect blend of poplar and aspen wood types.
TriTec Sidewalls - A 30 degree slanted sidewall construction using two horizontal layers of traditional ABS material that carry power and energy to the board's edge, while a visco-elastic layer positioned between those two layers reduces vibrations and increases control.
NorTec Fiberglass - This lay-up offers an optimized combination of flex and torsion. A stronger laminate allows use of lighter and thinner wood cores which reduces the overall weight of the snowboard. The end result is a super-stable and ultra-responsive ride.
ComposiTec Beam Technology - A lightweight composite carbon-Kevlar reinforcement material at the contact points of the tip and tail combined with NorTEC fiberglass adds to the board’s torsional stability. This enables the rider to conserve energy and increases control while riding.
AlphaTec Base - Highly porous sintered material with a high molecular mass facilitates maximum wax retention. Durable, fast and stone ground for enhanced gliding performance.

2012/2013 Artec Matrix Men's Snowboard Binding key features:
UniTec Pro Baseplate - Additional cored-out sections in the sides of the binding are added to reduce volume and weight while fiberglass reinforcement has been utilized for maximum structural integrity. Tool free adjustable toe ramps allow them to be manually adjusted to fit the front part of the boot perfectly.
ReacTec Highback - The ReacTec Pro highback is designed to deliver maximum edge control. Artec straightened and heightened the highback profile, increasing the transfer of energy from the rider's calf to the edge of the board. High back rotation and tool-free forward lean adjustment combine for full adjustability.
ComforTec Ankle Strap - Anatomically designed, these straps are pre-shaped to fit over boots perfectly. An integrated 3-D reinforcement frame offers secure hold with no pressure points for ultimate performance.
DiTec Lite Toe Strap - The padding is reduced on this toe strap for weight reduction and streamlined performance. It also allows for a full range of on-boot positioning and fastening.
EVA Pads - Shock-absorbing EVA foam material reduces impact energy when hitting bumps and stomping landings.
GripTec Pads - Sticky rubber insert on the highback padding that significantly increases boot hold and prevents unnecessary boot movements and heel lift.
Extended Highback EVA Padding - This padding offers the rider even more comfort through heelside turns and additionally prevents unwanted pressure points on the calves.
