For over a decade, Elan Snowboards has been an industry leader. As the World’s largest producer of high end snowboards, we produce decks since 1988. Year after year our products have been awarded by the worlds leading snowboard magazines.
Our research and development team is our best asset. Innovation, experience, and performance through years of industry-first designs has given us a unique perspective on snowboard design – as an approach focused on the creation of decks that help those who ride them, ride better.
There’s simply no compromise when it comes to Elan quality. That’s why all Elan snowboards are manufactured in our state-of-the-art factory in the Austrian Alps. It’s the best way to guarantee superior quality and allows us to react quickly and flexibly to the input of the P.Lab and our riders. Furthermore our factory is the only one boasting the ISO 14001 environmental certificate in production. By meeting these demands we commit ourselves to save the environment we all love so much as riders.
