Best Snowboard Deals 2021: Lowest Priced Gear You Can Find Online

Snowboarding gear can be expensive. A decent board can cost you over $500, and you’re lucky if you get a lift ticket for less than $60.

I’ve always been someone who loves a good deal. I am currently riding a youth-size snowboard that I love. It was a closeout deck for $120, and I ride it more than my regular snowboard setup. Excellent snowboard deals are out there, and I want to help you find them.

The following is a curated list of snowboards that I’ve found at any moment. At the time of writing, these are available. However, please know a great deal is the type of thing you act on because these will sell out.

I’ll do my best to keep this list of snowboard gear up to date, so here goes.

Here is a collection of every board that is on sale that I could find. This is a collection of the previous 2021 season’s decks.

Best Snowboard Deals: Lib Tech Board

Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard 2020 Version


Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard 2020 Version



Lib Tech’s Skate Banana is an easy to ride twin-shaped all-mountain freestyle board. This snowboard deal is for last year’s model, and the only real difference is that it has a different graphic than the newer version.

The board’s shape is what makes it easy and fun to ride. This snowboard is a hybrid rocker-shaped (banana-shaped) between your feet with slight camber zones under your feet to the nose and tail. The banana shape makes for a playful ride to learn butter and press tricks easier than some other boards on this list. The Skate Banana won’t catch an edge easily, so it is a beginner-friendly board.

This board is lightweight, flexible, and has some technology built into its edges that most snowboards don’t have. It is called Magne-Traction. If you were to look at the edges, it would look like a serrated knife. The benefit is that it can hold an edge wall you carve.

If you’re looking for a playful board that you can ride the entire mountain with, take a look at this deal.

Sizes: 154cm, 156cm Wide

The Capita Supernova is now on sale for a steal of a price.

The Supernova is Capita’s directional all-mountain freeride board, and it is perfect for intermediate to advanced riders who love to carve and go fast. This board rips, and it won the Transworld snowboarding good wood award for two years for a good reason.

The board profile is a hybrid shape that is perfect for riding powder or carving resort terrain. The profile has rocker in the nose and under your foot and then camber just after your front foot through the rest of the snowboard. The rocker zone will help this board float, and the camber will help you get the response to carve quickly and confidently.

The Supernova has plenty of tech built into it. It has Capita’s fast sintered base and carbon fiber to help give it a springboard like pop.

If you weren’t lucky enough to get a 2021 Capita Doa before it sold out, consider its more powder friendly cousin, the Capita Supernova. There are a few larger sizes left of this one, so if you are a heavier rider who wants to ride some powder and charge the entire mountain, this is the deal I would consider buying.

Best Park Snowboard Deal

GNU Headspace


GNU Headspace



The GNU Head Space is one of the best park snowboards for 2021. It is on sale now for $100 off, and at that price, it is an insane deal.

This is an asymmetrical twin snowboard with the c3 rocker profile. Think of this as a camber dominant snowboard even though there is a mild rocker between your feet. The result is a playful, easy-to-ride snowboard blended with the stability and precision of the camber profile. The GNU Head Space has all of the pop and precision you would need to launch yourself off jumps while still being playful enough for jibs.

While I would put this board more in the park-focused crowd, it really has all you need to be your all-mountain board. The Head Space features Magne-Traction Serrated Edges giving it extra grip as you carve. If you’re on the east coast like me, the serrated edges will be useful on those icy days as they can carve on any terrain type.

If you’re looking for a park set up that you could easily ride the entire resort with, take advantage of this great deal before the board sells out.


Pros

  • The c3 profile shape
  • Magne-Traction™: Unreal edge hold
  • The balance of the asymetrical shape

Cons

  • Limited 1-year manufacturer warranty (some of the other warrantys are a little longer)
  • Might not be the best in deeper conditions. (Intended for park)
  • The extruded base isn’t the fastest. It is good enough to accelerate from rails to jumps.

How To Find the Best Discount on a Snowboard

<
  1. Use the snowboard length calculator to learn the size snowboard you need.
  2. Check out the discount or sale pages from the snowboard stores online. Here are my favorites The House’s snowboard outlet page here, Evo’s page where they show all their discounted snowboards here, or Backcountry’s “on sale” page filtered specifically to snowboards here.
  3. Find a board that matches your size, and is the right type of snowboard for the type of riding you will do. In other words, you won’t want to take a stiff freeride snowboard into the terrain park or vice versa.
