Snowboarding and longboarding are the top sports that are played in different parts of the world. These sports have gone through several changes in the past few years. Some changes were made in the rules and regulations of these sports and some changes were made in the shape of the boards that are used for these sports but recently some new changes are made to the materials that are used to manufacture these boards.
The reason why several top companies have made changes to the material is that many customers complained about the quality of material over the past year. Most of the manufacturers thought that is it was just because of the rough use of the board but after an increase in the complaints, they realized that there is definitely something wrong with the material and they decided to conduct several experiments to analyze the quality of the material.
Finally, they realized that the material they were using in the past was not strong enough to bear the weight of an adult. So, some top companies decided to use a different material on their boards. Here are the top materials and surfaces that are now being used for snowboarding and longboarding in 2018.
Bamboo is one of the strongest materials that are used in the production of longboards and snowboards. This is a flexible material and has the ability to bear the weight of a strong adult. The companies ran several experiments on this material to make sure that it may not disappoint them in the future. Now, the complaints have reduced a lot and the users that have bought the boards made with this material are completely satisfied with the performance of this material.
The maple was used in the production of longboards in the past but it failed to provide the expected performance to the customers. So, the companies decided to use the Chinese hardwood maple instead of the regular maple they were using in this past. The beauty of this material is that it provides better performance to the users and it is not even heavy. That’s the main reasons due to which most of the customers are buying the longboards made with this material.
Carbon fiber is another most popular material that is being used in the production of longboards and snowboards. The flexibility of this material has helped it achieve a higher rank in the industry of longboards and snowboards because flexibility is the most important requirement of the longboarding and snowboarding.
