What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

OUR PROJECT

It’s been a long time since the last major technical evolution in the winter sport industry. Years ago already, carving and rocker, initially developed for snowboards, changed our way to ride the snow forever.

In 2017, we are releasing a new generation snowboards. The Anticonf “Cut Back” and “Bad Kid” were born from the union of green and high performance. They are among the most eco-friendly boards ever built.

Underlying technologies are expected to bring a new revolution in the winter sports and were recently awarded as best winter innovation by the international ISPO sports trade show.

Product development is now finalized and first pre-series models have been successfully tested. Our next challenges are to finance our first batch of boards and keep optimizing our production. This is where we need you!

We are offering you the opportunity to ride the first models of our next snowboards! 

OUR PRODUCT

To most in the industry, green means lower performance. Not to us! For our project, we decided to take the research & development upside down and start from the green materials and the opportunities they represent.

Creative process is initiated from green materials’ mechanical properties. Among best performing materials: cork, bamboo, flax and bio epoxy resin, all have their advantages compared to traditional components.  

Based on these materials, classical parts such as the traditional snowboard wooden core are redesigned from scratch resulting in our patent-pending technology: the Next Core ©. This new generation of core is composed of bamboo stringers bent in cork.

Thanks to its unique composition, energies are directed exactly where they are needed. Weight is saved where mechanical resistance isn’t required and vibrations are absorbed by cork.

Additionally, during the stratification process, traditional glass fiber is replaced by 100% natural flax fiber and bio-epoxy resin is used to replace classical resins.

Final result is one of the greenest snowboard ever made. Performances are enhanced by the Next Core © for a better  dynamic and a lighter and smoother ride.

YOUR REWARDS

To finance our first board batch, we propose a range of products from the classical stickers pack to our snowboard itself. Any of your contribution is important to us and we guarantee the product quality and a fast delivery.

But the first way you can contribute to our project success is to share it with your friends, on your social pages or simply spread the word!

Entry contribution from 10 CHF will be rewarded by a pack of 5 stickers. If you are supporting us from 20 CHF or 30 CHF, you will get an Anticonf branded cap or t-shirt. With a 65 CHF contribution, you can also go for our high quality sweater printed in Switzerland and featuring a cork tag reminding our board composition. 

As an intermediary product, we propose our Anticonf snowboard helmet. This product has a unique design and many features that will make the difference. Its size adjustment feature makes it very comfortable and the magnetic strap allows you to easily buckle it even with glove. The inner layer can be exchanged for summer usage (summer layer not included). Pledge is set at 150 CHF which represents a -20% discount vs. the usual helmet retail price.

Last but not least, we propose 2 different versions of our snowboard for a pledge of 950 CHF

The Anticonf “Cut Back” is designed for carving and freeride. It has an asymmetric shape and is super intuitive and smooth to ride. Its long nose makes it ideal for powder surfing while the short and rigid tail enhanced the on-track dynamic and makes the board ideal to carve. Like all our product, the “Cut Back” is powered by our exclusive Next Core © technology that makes the board lighter and improves its responsiveness. The cork and flax fiber absorb the vibrations for more riding comfort. 2 sizes will be proposed: 158 cm and 162 cm

Full board specs available here

The Anticonf “Bad Kid” is designed as a polyvalent and efficient board. This all mountain twin tip model, has a powerful pop that makes it super playful and will please all freestylers. Like all our product, the “Bad Kid” is powered by our exclusive Next Core © technology that makes the board lighter and improves its responsiveness. The cork and flax fiber absorb the vibrations for more riding comfort. 2 sizes will be proposed: 152 cm and 156 cm

Full board specs available here

Our boards are all hand made in our Switzerland manufacture allowing us to ensure a top notch quality level.

We hope you’ll like our project as much as we do. Thanks for your support and enjoy the ride!

The Anticonf team

Risks and challenges

All our boards are produced in our own manufacture. Thanks to this production management we have full control over the quality of our products and can secure the production timing.

Our main challenge isn't on the product side, it's actually related to funding. Hence why we are launching through crowdfunding. We need your help to purchase the materials that will be used for the board and to optimize our production process to produce even higher quality boards.
