Women snowboarders don’t want men’s gear that’s been shrunk down and made pink these days. Check out these cool women’s specific gear options that are especially great for park riding.
Ride Bandita Contraband Bindings
These lightweight, comfortable bindings feature a single ratchet technology for speedy entry and exit. The secure V-Strap™ may look like a thong for your foot, but it locks down tight and keeps your feet stable so you’ll have an easier time throwing tricks in the park. Features include a highback for a women’s fit and premium flex, a Wedgie 2.5 footbed to provide an added dose of comfort and a Urethane Roller basepad to help absorb the shock of high impact park riding. $219.99, ridesnowboards.com
Vans Aura Snowboard Boot
The Vanslite Snowaffle Sole has ImpactSorb, which dampens shocks and cushions the foot during hard landings in the park. The double BOA closures deliver specific tightening across the upper region, forefoot and instep of the boot, providing an excellent fit. The heel is held in place by the thermal liner, which also delivers soft cushioned EVA support and features a comfort flex toe box to prevent toe cramps and chills. $239, vanssnow.com
Vans Hana Insulated Pant
This pant features a loose, women’s specific fit with fully taped seams and 10,000 mm rated fabric to keep you dry on really wet days. Extra insulation in the knees and butt keeps key areas warm, and gaiters block snow from getting down your boots. But the coolest feature of these pants is the zip-to-jacket interface which works with many Vans jackets and prevents snow from getting down your pants when you land in powder. $179.95, vanssnow.com
