"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."
Introducing 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.
Drift X Mine 77: 2021
Check out our ongoing collaboration with Mine 77, the personal brand of the late Jake Burton Carpenter, snowboarding pioneer and founder of Burton Snowboards. New Mine 77 Drift boards coming in 2021
Here's what Jake 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."
