Biotech for backcountry pursuits—WNDR Alpine’s microalgae-based materials


By utilizing biotechnology, WNDR Alpine is designing the performance characteristics they desire directly into the materials they produce, giving them more control over how their boards ride than they would with traditional materials.

WNDR Alpine’s new BelleTour and BelleAire feature the brand’s AlgalTech® materials, which are derived from microalgae oil and deliver better damping abilities and construction than the petroleum-based materials they replace. 


“Who would've thought that aligning the thing I love most - snowboarding - with biology and material science would bring about so many possibilities, both in terms of better performing snowboards, and materials that move our industry away from petroleum.” - Alex Andrews, WNDR Alpine
