Sustainable snowboard made with bio-resin

Sicomin has supplied one of its resins to help make a snowboard with a reduced environmental impact.

The Highpath snowboard is made by sports manufacturer Salomon using GreenPoxy 28 material as well as a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified core, bamboo veneers, a castor bean topsheet, 50% recycled content in the base and 20% recycled aluminum in the edges.

“The Highpath is a culmination of our efforts to design a high-performance, all-mountain snowboard that paves the way for a more sustainable ride,” said Thierry Marion, product manager at Salomon.
