Boards

In ’99/00 MLY will add three new lines of boards. The Variables (153, 157, 161, and 165 cm) are freeride boards designed with a progressive sidecut that quickens turn initiation and has a freestyle-influenced nose shape that performs well in the powder. The EX series (158 and 163 cm) is a wider-width performance freestyle board designed with a directional flex, moderate sidecut, and an all-mountain freestyle nose.

The M3 series (151, 154, and 157 cm) of boards incorporates all the features of pure technical freestyle boards, including narrow waist widths, longer contact lengths, and freestyle nose shapes. Due to popular demand, M3 models in sizes 156 and 160 cm, will once again be offered. The Ultimates (144, 149, 154, and 159 cm) continue as the all-mountain freeride board. The Mavericks (164, 169, and 174 cm) are big-mountain boards designed for high-speed cruising or deep powder.

The Signatures (147, 157, and 167 cm) designed for Shannon Melhuse are an ideal Alpine freeride board. The Tempests (139, 145, and 152 cm) are narrower-width women’s freeride boards. The Essential series (135, 141, 146, 151, and 156 cm) are inexpensive woodcore freestyle boards that ride well.

All MLY boards feature vertical monocoque construction, use pre-preg fiberglass that wraps entirely around the core and results in a lighter weight and more consistent flex. All boards, except the Essentials, feature tip-to-tail woodcores. The Variables, EX, and M3 feature super lightweight cores and graphite 5000 bases. All MLY boards have full-wrap edges and sublimated topsheets.

Boots

The Emery SIS boots have been redesigned for ’99/00 with more snowboard styling, mellower colors, and increased comfort and performance. All Emery boots are Italian-made. The Be-bop and Foxtrot come with thermofit liners and ratcheting ankle straps. The One Step emphasizes simplicity and affordability. The Emery line also includes women’s and children’s SIS boots. MLY also offers the entire line of Emery traditional and plate bindings.

Bindings

In 1999, MLY will continue as the exclusive distributor of the Emery SIS system. The SIS comes in a freeride (now with an external highback), a true freestyle external highback, and tool-less rental versions.

Apparel

MLY’s apparel will include the Detonator series that incorporates a proprietary two-layer waterproof-breathable stretch woven fabric and comes complete with a full range of innovative features including zippered vents and tech hoods.

The Charge series utilizes the waterproof-breathability of Dermizax and incorporates MLY’s honeycomb Ripstop fabric. The Blast and Fuse series uses the proven waterproof-breathability of Delfy 2000 and incorporates mellow styling and all the essential tech features. The Burn, Torch, and Flame items emphasize practical design and function for a great value. MLY’s colors will be muted yet vibrant, such as rust, resin, ink, smoke, and night. MLY will also offer the Furnace down vest and jacket and complete sweater, fleece warm-up, and casual basic layer lines.

Accessories

MLY will offer a complete line of packs and bags. The Vault is a convertible gear bag with a zip-off daypack and wheels. The Cave is a unique full-wrap cargo bag with a fold-out tarp and a wet/dry stuff sack pocket. The Grotto Pack is a smaller version of the Canyon Pack. Both feature hydration pockets, adjustable shoulder and waist harnessing, and the patented Cirqueworks board carrying system. The Crevice pack and the Crack pack are simple designs that will haul your stuff well. The Abyss is a boardbag that will fit all of your gear on long trips and comes complete with wheels. The Chamber is a simple boardbag that will protect your gear.

Boards

For ’99/00, Morrow Snowboards will introduce several exciting new products. The highest-profile product next year will be the Tenth Anniversary Limited Edition Blaze Snowboard Line, a reincarnation of the first board designed and produced by Morrow Snowboards. With the Tenth Anniversary Blaze, Rob Morrow has designed the new inner-barrel construction, an even more efficient use of the already popular torque-rod technology. Added to this futuristic board is Morrow’s most advanced damping system and an all-new freeriding shape.

Morrow is introducing the Unit, a new line of freestyle boards for intermediate to advanced riders looking for a lightweight, do-anything freestyle shape. Also new is the Radium and Radium Wide snowboard line, an entry-level freeride board with high-end features. This board offers composite torsion box construction and a progressive freeriding shape, but is easy on the pocketbook. The Radium is offered in both normal and wide editions.

For ’99/00, additional sizes have been added to Morrow’s proven best-sellers, the Lithium and the Dimension.

Bindings

The well-received Engage Step-In system will be upgraded with new versions of the 09 and S7 boot. This three-point system has been designed to give the rider support and flexibility where it is needed. This combination creates a snowboard-style-friendly boot/binding system.

Traditional bindings will be updated with the introduction of two new bindings called the Supastar and the Master.
