Loaded Algernon Snowboard Multiple Sizes

by: Loaded

We love to snowboard and we've been having a blast tweaking and testing variations of this design and are excited to finally share it with you. It was from snowboard design and construction that Loaded birthed our first skateboards 14 years ago. It only makes sense to take what we have learned along the way and apply it back to snow. We are going to build a limited run of boards, out of love, with the goal to shift the paradigm toward a more sustainable future for the community. Experimenting with subtleties and simplicity, we pared down each feature over the course of many years. We achieved a uniquely accessible, intuitive, responsive snowboard that can crush high speed carves on groomers, charge through the crud, send off the biggest cheese wedge and float down a powder pillow line. It’s not a quiver killer, but it’s pretty darn close.

Building a snowboard from scratch allowed Loaded to develop a new sizing system for the Algernon. Typically boards are designed for a specific rider, usually a pro, and then scaled up and down from that template. Loaded wanted every size of the Algernon to ride as intended without losing any resolution from scaling. To do so, Loaded created a formula considering boot size, stance width and rider weight and then applied this to each individual board size, essentially creating four unique boards that all ride exactly as calculated.
