THE STORY
OF SILBAERG

For more than 20 years now, we have been completely addicted to snowboarding. The joy of buttery turns on untracked slopes, new tricks in the park and on the slopes or the dreamlike panoramic views still exists as in the first winter. Even at our beginnings, a then still vague wish was buzzing in our heads: someday ride a snowboard you created yourself and feel a bit like Tom Sims, how awesome would that be?

But a few years would pass before this dream came close… In the meantime, the 90s were history, and so were our youths, so we got closer to the subject during our studies in materials science. Material science doesn’t sound very cool, but in the end it can be. After graduation, we remained active as scientists in the field, researching fiber-plastic composites and stumbling upon the “anisotropy-induced coupling effect”.

If only we could make this effect controllable, it would be a revolution in snowboarding. The dream felt within reach for the first time in 2006, and yet we still spent 5 years with university research, calculations, building prototypes, lots of test runs, setbacks, evaluating measurement data and further development.


In 2011 we were finally able to found silbærg snowboards and launch sophisticated, technologically unique snowboards with patented A.L.D.-Tech.®, which won the ISPO BrandNew Award right after the first series was produced. Since then, we have been producing our fine boards largely locally in small series and continuously work on further developing our technology as well as improving the sustainability of our products.
