Above: The 2019-2020 Telos Lineup
California is home to the mythical Mount Shasta, said to be the location of the legendary lost city of Telos. Buried deep in the recesses of the mountain, an ancient and technologically superior race of beings apparently lived out their days as the sister city of the fabled Atlantis. Telos snowboards created their brand ethos around this story, combining trippy graphics depicting the rise and fall of the empire, with their focus on creating technologically superior products.
The Ride and Seek is one of the most exciting boards we’ve laid our eyes on in a while and comes in both a split and a solid board form. With a full swallow tail profile, and an elongated nose profile, we’re already drooling about the powder riding capabilities of this beast.
Twice as nice is the DST, because one swallow tail isn’t enough, right? The Double Swallow Tail also comes in an ultra-light carbon version, and word on the street is its one of the lightest snowboards on the planet, but still retains its durability from the carbon weave.
The Back\Slash has a volume shifted profile and sports a big old wide nose and a super shallow surfer tail to keep you floating in the deep stuff. Far from a one hit wonder, the strong cambered section and sidecut will get you ripping and gripping like nobody’s business on piste. Again, it comes in both a solid and split form, and utilises Telos’ boltless clip system on the splitboard version.
“By Definition a Telos is an ultimate goal or purpose”
The Blunt is their more freestyle focused offering and has a super soft flex pattern paired with a twin shape and a cambered profile underfoot to give an ultimate playful feel. It comes in smaller sizes as well, so for littler riders or for those who just like to really dominate their board, it’s a great option.
And the ultimate goal of Telos, is to create a line of products that blows minds, and we’re excited to see the future with them.
