We've featured Brixton quite a few times here on Much Awesome and we're doing so again today. It's because they're awesome and make awesome stuff. This time around they've teamed up with skate company Krooked to collaborate on a new,...

A lot of quality snowboarding products have already been released for the 2014 winter season and a large handful of these products are thanks to the brains and brawn over at GNU. The 2014 GNU Pickle Snowboard is no different. The...
The Nitro Demand Snowboard has been available for several years now but the 2013 model is better than ever. The board is geared towards younger riders, hence its smaller profile, but it actually works just as well with older and more experienced riders in those situations where a smaller board is more ideal. In fact, the Demand has even become popular with members of the Nitro Professional Team.
Splitboards are the best way to access hike-in backcountry terrain far beyond lift country. But they’re also among the most expensive boards on the market, often approaching $1,000. That’s not necessarily a bad price if you plan to abandon the resort entirely, but kind of steep when used as a complement to an equally expensive season pass. To make matters worse, you probably have an entire section of your garage dedicated to your current quiver of boards, making you hesitant to buy yet another. Could this be the solution?
Over the past few years, skiers and snowboarders have migrated increasingly from resort slopes and parks to surrounding sidecountry and onward to deeper, more remote backcountry peaks and lines. While backcountry riding has opened up all kinds of new possibilities, it’s also increased the need for more purpose-built gear. K2 answers this need with the all-new Kwicker splitboard package, which promises to be the most user-friendly splitboarding solution on the market.

Opening like a book, the Gravis Trekker Travel Bag has more than enough room for all of your stuff. It is tough and durable so it can stand up to almost any traveling abuse that you can throw at it. Better yet, it’s small enough to be considered a carry-on by most major airlines.
Cushioned sneakers designed to help athletes jump higher have been around for decades. Basically, the compressed sole of such shoes returns energy vertically, enabling an athlete to leap to greater heights while expending less energy themselves. Adidas has taken this...

For years, snowboarders have been at the mercy of the resort when it comes to fixing and fine-tuning gear. Fix-up benches have become commonplace, but they were once few and far between. And while there have always been plenty of pocket-sized multi-tools on the market, there aren't many designed around the specific hardware needed for riding.
