Freeride and Backcountry Snowboards
Slalom and Giant Slalom
While length is an important factor in board selection, width will have a much bigger affect on the fun factor. Too wide or too narrow and your on snow experience can turn to misery. Every board we produce is adjusted to fit your foot, so you can be sure to avoid toe and heel drag, or never have to work harder than necessary to put the board on edge because it is too wide. The typical length advice for a beginning rider is a board that comes somewhere between your chin and nose. You’ll find we make boards from 120cm in length up to 228cm. Obviously, that rule gets broken, so if you’re not sure on length for a particular model, e-mail or call us for advice when you are looking at our snowboards for sale.
A Donek comes with your choice of graphics on almost every model, so you aren’t forced to make a compromise when it comes to your riding needs and personal style. If you can’t find a graphic you like on our web site, you can always design your own or request contact information for an artist we work with to help you in that endeavor. If you’re looking for a graphic we use to produce, but can’t find it on our site, let us know, we can probably still print it. When looking for a snowboard for sale that has graphics you like and meets your riding needs, you may struggle find a match with other brands.
If you look at the snowboards for sale on our web site, you’ll find a huge variety. Beginning riders are likely to want to investigate the phoenix series first. This is the most versatile model we produce, allowing you to experience almost every aspect of the mountain while being easy to ride. If you’re interested in learning to ride hard shell boots for carving or racing, we recommend you start by looking at the Pilot and Axxess series boards.
There are not a lot of competitive snowboards for sale these days. When it comes to winning races no other North American made brand of boards was on the podium in the speed events more than Donek. From the USASA nationals to the Winter Olympics no other brand of snowboards provides the support that Donek does to adaptive athletes either. We are proud to sponsor the top paralympic athletes in the world and wish them luck in their journey to the 2018 Olympic games in Pyeong Chang, South Korea.
