There’s yet another incredible prize up for grabs this month, courtesy of Drake, Vans, Celtek, the Riders Refuge and more. One lucky reader is going to walk away with the following amazing swag.
DRAKE URBAN SNOWBOARD
This is the stick that Billy Morgan won the Battle of Britain comp on at the Relentless Freeze Festival. It’s a relatively soft-flexing true twin, which, as that name would suggest, is more than happy on rails. However the flat base means it holds an edge nicely on the piste, and as Billy’s performance proved, it’s pretty sick on kickers too!
DRAKE FIFTY BINDINGS
The perfect pair for that board, these again are Billy’s model of choice. Mid-flexing and comfortable anywhere, these are easily adjustable and lock you in tight, without feeling like bear-traps. No wonder they’ve been one of Drake’s biggest sellers for a decade or so!
VANS-CELTEK COLAB HI-STANDARD BOOTS
This year Vans hooked up with glove makers Celtek to make a special collab colourway version of their classic Hi-Standard boot. Not only do these look the dogs bollocks, their mid-soft flex means they’ll help most shredders ride like the mutt’s nuts too. Seriously steezy in every way.
VANS RIDGE INSULATED JACKET*
Vans make some of the sickest outerwear out there. This jacket is stylish without being over the top, and has a healthy 10,000MM/10,000GM waterproof / breathability rating that’ll handle most conditions. Its built with impressive attention to detail, and includes things like fully-taped seams and an iPod pocket.
VANS RIDGE INSULATED SNOWBOARD PANTS
Designed to be worn with that jacket, these are equally impressively decked out from a technical point of view. There’s the solid insulation that’ll keep you snug as a proverbial bug in a rug while riding, and more pockets than you could shake a stick at.
CELTEK-VANS COLLAB GLOVES
In return for making them those lovely boots, Celtek decided top make Vans a collab glove – isn’t that nice of them? These not only feature Vans’ instantly-recognisable checked pattern on the upper, but have palms made to look like the waffle soles on Vans classic skate shoes.
DALIKFODDA-WHITELINES COLLAB BEANIE
We hooked up with one of our favourite homegrown brands to create this rad deathpunk snowboard magazine hybrid. Basically it’s the only thing to be seen wearing on your head this season. Subscribers, of course, will already have one of these, but an extra can’t hurt, can it?
A HOLIDAY FOR TWO WITH RIDERS’ REFUGE
Riders Refuge, as their name suggests, are a snowboarder-owned and run chalet company based in Morzine, at the heart of the absolutely ma-hoosive Portes du Soleil area. As well as being able to play on the 600-plus kilometres of pistes and multiple parks that the area offers, the lucky winner and a friend or lover will be put up for seven nights in Chalet Deffert absolutely gratis. There, they will be served fine food and good quality wine – none of the usual chalet plonk. They’ll be able to try out the latest Salomon Snowboards and, best of all, they’ll be whisked to and from Geneva airport at the beginning and end of their holiday for free! So what do you have to do to get your hands on this epic prize? Well that's easy - just answer this stupidly simple question.
