Here's something a small group of us have been working hard on, and we're pretty damn excited about.

http://www.chimerasnowboards.com

We're heading up to the Baker Splitfest this weekend with our new boards in varying sizes, plus some prototypes. If you see us and want to demo a deck, stop by and say hello. Hearing rider feedback and ideas is critical for us, and your involvement would be appreciated.

Cool looking boards. If I may offer one piece of advice- add some space between the bottom of the text and the bottom of the page on your website?

I'm curious to hear more about the "killer bite" tech you guys have. Why just in the middle, on one hand, it makes sense, but on the other, I sort of want a full wrap metal edge for when I tag rocks and such.

Nice looking start - agree with the spacing at the bottom of the website. Also consider posting the relevant specs for each model and size and perhaps even the relevant weights as your killerbites are purported to reduce your overall weight of the setup.

Good luck with the new venture! :thatrocks:

Some cool ideas. :thumbsup:

Maybe change the name of that one board, the unicorn chaser :wink: Makes me think of hippies. Maybe call it the Hippy Club, and have some cool graphic of a hippy getting a taste of the baton.

^^^ Didn't notice that fullers but that's cool, I get it.

You guys have some well thought out ideas that clearly show you have some experience in the game. Everything sounds good would also like to demo one to see if it's as good as it's sounds.

Sweet - looks like you are bringing some well thought out split-specific innovations driven by experience. I especially like the no-stick topsheet. Good luck.

Chimera had a prototype at the Rogers Pass splitfest back in january. From what I see on the website I'm guessing it was the Orb. There were definitely some interesting ideas tried out with the board. Unfortunately it was much too short for an ape like me to ride. I'd be interested to check out a production model as I felt there were a few issues with the prototype. The touring bracket was mounting way too far back on the board to start with. While standing in the skin track critiquing the board with some friends we all disagreed on what would make the perfect board though. So what make one guy happy may not appeal to the next. It is super cool to see a new company entering the split game. I'm looking forward to hearing from other people who actually get to ride the boards.
