SIA 2011 Day One Highlights

Comments by Snowboard Magazine/

SIA 2011 kicked off in Denver today at the Colorado Convention Center with thousands of industry professionals packing on to the trade show floor to show off their latest and greatest in snowboard products.

Day one always marks one of the better days at SIA as no one has had the chance to party until 4am the night before. With cameras in hand we hit the ground running to show you the best 2012 products from your favorite snowboard companies.

Some quick points to touch on for next years gear would be colors. It seem as though bold bright colors are here to stay as many companies showed an increasing trend of bright tops and bottoms.

On the hardgoods side many companies have increased their board production to include more size options as well as custom colors and graphics. The technology only gets better as time goes on as R&D was hard at work with team riders to get their products dialed for 2012.

Check out the gallery for products from Burton, Dakine, YESnowboards, Jones Snowboards, O'Neill, anon, RED, DC, K2, Arnette, Candy Grind, Protec, Sabre and ThrityTwo.
