Oakley Prizm

oakley Prizm

Why riding with a single lens is now an option.

Often, in a snowy environment, everything is white, depth perception is reduced and detail is lost due to a lack of contrast. Oakley Prizm uses precision color tuning to draw out crisp detail in the snow without getting washed out. Prizm accentuates contrast and increases visibility of snow contours, bumps and textures so you can identify and avoid hazards, and pick your line accordingly. In addition, Prizm enhances vision in a wide range of light conditions from bright sun to snowy skies without switching lenses. As a result, Prizm Snow lenses allow you to see clearly, react faster, and ride with more confidence. You will never see snow the same way again.


Oakley Prizm goggles are available at boardertown.co.nz and from Boardertown stores nationwide.

Let Evolve Skateboards change your commute

Evolve Skateboards

Evolve Skateboards create high performance electric longboards that are perfect for the morning commute or to get the adrenaline going.  

With numerous awards including the prestigious Good Design award for the Carbon GT, Evolve Skateboards have been meticulous in designing the ultimate electric skateboards.  Both the Carbon GT and Bamboo GT feature twin 3,000 watt motors capable of speeds of up to 42km/h over a range of 35km with enough power to handle a 25 degree incline with ease (Evolve Skateboards even recently tackled the world's steepest street, Baldwin Street in Dunedin).  All powered by a 36V Li-Ion battery and controlled via a bluetooth handset with digital display.

Each of the Carbon GT and Bamboo GT models comes in 3 variants.  The Street variant comes with traditional longboard wheels providing the fastest acceleration and greatest range. The All Terrain (AT) variant with 7" pneumatic tyres for a smoother ride that is capable of tackling most terrain.  Not sure on which one to choose?  The 2 in 1 model comes with both Street and AT wheel configurations which can be easily swapped over.

To make sure that Evolve Skateboards are suitable for everyone, choose from 4 different modes - Slow, Eco, Fast or GT.  Get moving with the Slow mode before moving on to the Eco mode for a faster commute.  Want more?  Change up to Fast mode or for the most extreme option, choose GT mode for unbelievable acceleration.  The boards also feature regenerative breaking (recharge your battery as you brake) and reverse mode.

Call 0800 4  BTOWN to book an Evolve Demo at Boardertown stores today or order online and get free freight nationwide.

Internationally renowned artist Lucas Beaufort visits Boardertown College Hill

Skateboarding has always walked hand in hand with the art community.  Art has influenced skateboarding and skateboarders have influenced art.  The rise of social media has allowed for artists to connect to the skateboard community in new ways.  French artist Lucas Beaufort knows this too well.  His unique take on art and his series of prints created on skateboard photography has been embraced around the globe.  Through this Lucas has embarked on a trip around the world, leaving his mark on skateboarders, surfers and snowboarders.  Thanks to Converse, the Boardertown College Hill team were lucky enough to have Lucas stop by and create an artwork to hang in store.  

The new artwork is hanging in store and is open to view during store hours.
