The AMPLID GREEN LIGHT PROJECT isn’t a sudden reaction to consumer demand. Since Amplid’s inception the company has strived to keep its negative impact on the environment to a minimum, after all it’s in our interest to keep the mountains white. Since day one our skis and snowboards have been manufactured by some of the most environmentally forward thinking factories in the EU. We’ve kept our carbon footprint as small as possible by sourcing all of our raw materials within a 400km radius of our factories.
Two years ago Aplid’s founders Peter Bauer and Anian Thrainer felt it was time to apportion Amplid’s twenty years of ski and snowboard R&D experience to developing high performance products created from non-toxic materials and less energy hungry manufacturing processes; the Green Light Project was born. The Green Light Project is about real eco-friendly technologies that deliver incredible performance; it’s about extending the ARC to incorporate innovative suppliers providing green and recycled material solutions and putting these materials through our rigorous testing.
The 1st step AGL Board is made with FSC certified woodcore but is currently being replaced with the a BcompCore 120 (Recycled PET & Flax Fibres) to make it 30% lighter and gives a super smooth and shock absorbing ride. The sidewalls and base material are made of recycled or reused ABS and PE material. Resin and Topsheet are biobased and non-competitive to the food chain. A beautiful, performing and sustainable board.
