Forum Snowboards is one of the most well-recognized and respected brands in the snowboarding industry today. As Forum Snowboards celebrates ten years on-snow one thing stays consistent, relying heavily upon their team of world class pro riders for invaluable on-snow performance feedback. This season they also made their Forum high-performance boot range lighter, smaller and more comfortable than anything in their class.
Forum Snowboards prides itself in being a leader of innovative Forum boots, Forum hoodies, Forum bindings and fitting you in everything you need for a day on and off the slopes. Forum Snowboards is geared toward raising the bar for snowboard equipment, now it's up to the other companies if they can keep up.
Fully loaded and built for nothing less than adventure, the Forum Holy Moly 155 is ready for any trick in the book. The Combo Platter profile combines the pop, edge grip and stability of the camber with the forgiving and playful ride of the rocker. This completely new profile has 3.75cm wide platters running 25cm along each edge, located just under the toes and heels of your feet. By lifting the edges up off the snow 2mm in those key areas, the board has a less catchy feel but still maintains smooth grip and control when you put it on edge. This profile is rounded out by a powerful nose and tail for big takeoffs and landings. The Holy Moly 155 sports Really Light Core (he lightest, strongest, and poppiest core. Built using 64% sustainable lightweight wood with beech inlays to beef up underfoot stability and add a bit more spring), Light Triax™ with Carbon (xtra spring and tip-to-tail response was added by layering this strips of carbon fiber over the Light Triax laminate) and Swinger's Club technology (makes the board spin faster and float with less effort). Add on the Forum Republic bindings and you’ll be pounding the slopes with your bros in no time.
Before you head out on your shred weekend, pick up the Forum Giard Jacket to keep your style as fresh as the powder on the mountain. The DWR-treated shell repels moisture while the zippered underarms give you extra ventilation. If any company is committed to the integrity, thrill and perseverance of the ride, it's Forum Snowboards. Not only does it show in the highest quality of snowboard boots and bindings, it shows when you hit the mountain. Let Forum Snowboards be the one you choose, from start to finish. Get your gear on at the Rideshop on Zappos.com.

We are proud to announce that you can now find Celtek products in the Rideshop on Zappos.com.
Gregory packs were founded in 1977 in San Diego, California by outdoor enthusiast Wayne Gregory. With almost 40 years of designing and building outdoor products under his belt, Wayne Gregory is committed to ensuring that each and every pack exceeds your expectations. Along with a team of talented associate designers, Gregory continues to seek out new technology improvements and evolve with ever-changing comfort specific designs.
The Gregory® Torre 33 is a roll-top pack with a separating skirt and long zipper that runs down the length of the pack. Open it all up in one fell swoop and load in larger items like your rope, rack and helmet with ease. You can pack it up to the top and still be able to secure it so all of your gear is safely inside. The adjustable ice axe/trekking pole loops can be tucked away and you’ll really love the hydration port on your way to the summit. This pack features Fusion LTS Suspension that includes:
- Ultra-soft, precurved 3D waistbelt and harness provide maximum comfort by eliminating wrinkles and hot spots on main contact areas of the hips and shoulders.
- The narrow waistbelt profile allows for superior range of motion.
- Wraptor stabilizer pulls the backpanel of the pack in toward the lumbar area, transferring the weight evenly over a wider area. This stabilizes the backpanel and alleviates pack bounce during high aerobic activity.
- Removable HDPE framesheet with a removable single aluminum stay is supported by a horizontal anti-barreling cross-stay. This ensures that the pack will not barrel under extreme weight.
- Dual density foam lumbar pad correctly transfers the weight of the pack to your hips.
