New Swoard Dual2: preview

Post by Swoard team » Thursday 10 November 2016, 19:22

Okay, next weekend during the Rock On Snowboard Tour (in Tignes, France) some riders will see the new Dual2.
Thus we can't keep it secret any longer. :D Here is how it looks.

All details will be given soon. What made the success of the 1st generation comes with increased dampening, stability, comfort and still improved performances.
Best board ever for soft boots riders (and even hard boots riders) who love this dual program: freecarve and freeride. Availability: end of December 2016.

It was hard work of development, but very exciting.
Special thanks to Lionel (the artist) and Patrice (the perfectionist) for the graphics. We hope you like it. 8)

As said on Facebook, we change graphics (and the number of generation) only when there is a big change in construction and materials.
We remain faithful to our philosophy. 8)

Thank you! We are glad many people on the social networks are liking the graphics. :oops:
We wanted to make something coherent with previous generation and other Swoard models, but including an evolution.

Though the cost of materials is still increasing, and the construction is more complex than Dual1, we want to keep same price for Dual2 ! :D :bravo:

Hello!

It will be after Christmas. Before is too uncertain because of Christmas rush, heavy traffic and delays from the logistics company, etc.
Thank you for you patience. The new model is worth this waiting. :D

We need some more videos of riding with the Dual. :-) It seems sorely unrepresented in the videos, official and unofficial. Indeed, the best one seems to be from Petr:
I wish I could master the back-side turn in the same way, he makes it look effortless.

Hi there,

Do you have a specific date that it can be ordered on the site?

Cheers!

Not specific but approximate, as it depends on various persons and IT: before mid-January.

It gives some time to mother nature for sending us some fresh snow... It's so dry in the Alps. :cry:

Hi,

I don't want to seem too pushy, but is there a date yet for when the new dual will be available (and expected delivery)? I'm getting really close to a deadline for ordering a new board and am forced to make a choice in the next couple of days.

Thanks,

Sam
