Our roots are in snow, skate & surf so this collaboration means a lot to us. One of the things that really excited us about creating CINCO was the idea of being able to reconnect and work with friends from our community on fun collaboration projects. Making a couple snowboard with Rob Dow from Wired Snowboards seemed like the perfect way to kick things off.
We’ve known Rob for over 20 years going back to the Iris Snow / Little Bastard days. Rob has dedicated most of his life to snowboarding. He’s been a Pro rider for brands like Vans and Option, he was one of the founders of Iris Snow, Wildcats, he ran board development at Endeavor for years and more recently is the founder of Vancouver based Wired Snowboards.
Wired has a small factory in East Vancouver, not far from the old Option factory. Watching Rob and his team hand build snowboards from scratch is super impressive, they’re masters of their craft. After a quick visit earlier this fall, a couple CINCO’s with the crew and a few stories of the good old days we knew we had to make some custom boards and decided on two retro shapes, the Recon 158 and the Vantage 158. We couldn’t be happier with how they turned out and have had a blast ripping pow on them so far this season. These boards are nod to our roots, the golden years of snowboarding.
Keep an eye out for giveaways and a couple old hippies ripping up a mountain near you.
