"Snowshoes. Splitboards. Cross country skis. They all have their drawbacks when heading into the backcountry. Drift Boards borrow elements from each to give you the best way to reach remote powder."
What people are saying:
“Drift boards have opened up a new world of backcountry exploration and snowboarding for me. Love it.”
“Drift boards are, hands down, one of the best things that happened since the birth of snowboards! Instant love.”
“I am blown away by what you can do on Drift boards. Feels like you’re a ninja.”
“Best human powered backcountry movement in the game.”
“They straight up haul on those long, steady climbs. Add that to the fact that you can bring up any board you want…”
“They are epic. A total game changer for me.”
“Incredible. You guys nailed it with these.”
The Oxygen Drift Boards!
For those looking to find some pow without spending much cash.
Made from glass fiber instead of carbon, these are the same size as our carbon boards, with the same skin and the same binding (molded composite instead of CNC aluminum).
The Oxygen boards include a bit more flex and weight than the carbon version and feature a very cool transparent top sheet that shows the natural wood core.
Here's what Jake Burton Carpenter had to say about Drift boards:
"Back before snowboarders were allowed on lifts, it was just you, your friends, and plenty of powder. That’s the soul of this sport for me, and in many ways, nothing’s changed. To this day, some of my best turns were the ones I earned and, in my opinion, these approach “skeez” we designed with Drift are the best way up the mountain. On the climb, they function like a splitboard with grippy skins on the bottom, a binding that hinges at the toe, and heel elevators to keep you level and comfortable. When it’s time to ride, you can jump right into your powder board of choice with your favorite boots. Strap the skeez right to your pack—they’re so light you won’t even notice. Any board carry straps will do but check out the skee-carry system I designed on the Mine77 Touring Pack—it carries them perfectly. Oh, and don’t make the same mistake as me—get yourself some good collapsible poles."
