Korua Snowboards 2016-2017 Preview – ISPO 2016

The shape of things to come...

Nicholas Wolken (pictured) and Stephan Maurer love a powder turn, and developed a whole mess of snowboards designed to do just that.

As time went on, they tweaked their designs until they had a quiver of sticks that could handle hard-pack just as well as the soft stuff, If you share the boys’ ‘Yearning For Turning’ then Korua Shapes is a brand you absolutely have to check out.

This year a lot of things remain the same; the topsheets are white, the bases are red and the emphasis is still very much on the turn – hence the dramatically directional shape of every model in the range (with the exception of the Tranny Finder).

New developments include varying sizes for the classic models, a new camber profile, and splitboards. On top of that, every board features the name of the rider that inspired it, from Nicolas himself to ace photographer Cyril Müller.
