Below you will find our Winter 2016/2017 Limited Edition Series of Snowboard, Splitboard and Ski models. Each is crafted in the same spirit as our Custom work, with performance and beauty at the epicentre. This collection is comprised of our favourite tried-and-tested shapes and profiles and are built with riders’ joy in mind.


The marquetry artwork is inspired both by the woodgrain itself and our beautiful surroundings. Particularly, this series explores how light both reveals and casts shadows in the alpine through silhouettes and glowing auras. This year we have drawn from the Bauhaus and Pop-Art sensibilities to create a look that is simple-yet-impactful for these functional pieces of art.

The Black Creek

the black creek snowboard image

Function: The Black Creek is built to thrive in every set of conditions that Ullr can muster. It's perfect for charging through heavy chop; weaving a line through tight trees; laying into big nose-to-the-snow carves; open throttle speed; and surfing deep powder turns. It features an early rise camber profile and carbon fibre "X" underfoot. In essence The Black Creek is a highly responsive blend of directional stability and manoeuvrability that holds a tight edge. If you are a snow lover with one board in your quiver, this is it.


Art: The moment of a moonrise above mountains is an image that is easily and permanently etched in the mind's eye.

The Tsolum

Function: In homage to the roots of freestyle, the Tsolum all-mountain twin is a hybrid of style, beauty and performance. The early-rise nose and tail provide easy transition between edges while maintaining a firm grip on the snow. A carbon fibre X under each binding increases response and durability. Camber and carbon are combined with a medium flex pattern for a strong playful ride that allows you to hot lap the park and shift straight into deep snow conditions.


Art: After blizzard winds drop, and the snow settles, we are gifted nature's frozen wave: the windlip.

The Ramblers>

the ramblers skis

Function: The Ramblers are powder skis. They’re semi-wide, directional, and sport nose and tail rocker with camber underfoot. They are ideal for playful powder turns and tight trees. They are solid edge to edge which means you will have no problem touring or traversing en route to the steep and deep.


Art: The glory of storm-riding is an acquired taste, but we all revel equally when the sun breaks through the clouds and casts the world aglow.

The Cumberland Gap

the cumberland gap snowboards

Function: Hard work, knowledge, and the Cumberland Gap will reveal new terrain options and transport you beyond the lift line. This is a directional split with stability and manoeuvrability at the core. The nose and tail rocker with camber underfoot serve to take the pressure off your turns after a long hike. Karakoram clips keep it tightly bound, so you can focus on what lies ahead. In this case the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.


Art: A view of mountains emerging from beneath land, sea or cloud is the stuff of dreams.

Experience

"This season I toured throughout the Rockies and Monashees on The Kindred Cumberland Gap with a carbon fibre upgrade. I love that weight is cut on the up track without sacrificing stiffness. It is extremely responsive and inspires confidence with every turn - the ultimate splitboard for charging big lines at high speeds.
It makes me want to go bigger every time I come to a halt in the flats and look back at my prize! If you're looking to push your free riding to the next level this is the splitboard for you."

-Tyler Turner
Team rider and Tail Guide at K3 Cat Ski

"Pillows Stacks. Single Slashes. Mogul Methods. Mandatory Straight Lines. Hot Pow. Yesterday's Champagne. TOMORROW MORNING. Switch stalefish. Buttered Knuckles. Sled Laps. Safety Meetings. Cab 2's. Corduroy. Switch Toe Carve Swaps. Holy Crails. Hard-ways. Rope Ollies. XL Jumps. Down-Flat-Down-Flat-Downs. Hard Charging. Easy Riding... The Tsolum is a samurai sword, cutlass and jungle machete all in one; beautiful enough for my mantle, technical in close combat and built for slashing your way to powder paradise. The only thing I don't like about my Kindred is taking my headphones out on the chairlift to talk about it"

"My board arrived in the mail today. All I can say is WOW! I am absolutely thrilled with the craftsmanship. It really is a unique and personalized piece of art"

"My Kindred powder skis are amazing. They keep me afloat despite my weighing over 275lbs. I visited the workshop, watching the process in stages, and know first hand the work that goes into them. Kindred is a go-to source for anyone who appreciates fine hand-crafted equipment that performs - although my wife thinks they are too pretty to ski on and should be hung as artwork!"

-Steve Touhey
Two Eagles Lodge, Union Bay BC

"The board is gorgeous. Absolutely stunning. You guys did a phenomenal job on this one. I just want to say that working with you these past 4 months has been a really great experience. I had a lot of fun the whole way through. I'll be sure to recommend you guys to anyone who asks. Thanks again for bearing with me through this complex project, and I look forward to working with you again in the future."

"My Kindred Black Creek is one of the best boards I have ridden in my 20+ years of snowboarding. The product description is totally accurate - it's a quiver-filler and one-stop-shop suitable for directional riding in most any conditions. I'm an aggressive rider who demands a lot of my board and it always does what I ask it to. It's my go-to stick."

-Rob Pickering
Oyster River, BC

"In my nearly 25 years of snowboarding I have been fortunate to ride many boards - including test riding a half dozen Kindreds - and Kindred offer aspects you simply cannot find with other snowboards. They balance meticulous hand-built principles supported by computer/tech accuracy; they offer a personalized customer experience that bigger manufacturers cannot duplicate; and most of all they boast a priceless love of building snowboards. The cherry on top is that the boards are bullet-proof and they look ridiculously good slashing powder!!"
