The trenches are dug and the front lines are stacked as SNOWBOARDER Magazine's 2013 Battle of the Brands is about to kick off. Sixteen of snowboarding's biggest and most influential brands have provided us with their individually filmed and edited Superpark 17 edits and they'll be going head-to-head against their opponent. Brackets were chosen at random and the stage is set for all-out war.
The brands participating in the BOTB 2013 are: Burton, Bataleon, CAPiTA, Never Summer, DC, Nitro, Giro, DAKINE, Smokin’, Mervin Manufacturing, Arbor, ThirtyTwo, Quiksilver, Ride, Volcom, and Airblaster.
Beginning on Monday, June 17th, 2013 at midnight EST, these sixteen brands will fight to the finish in three day, bracket-style elimination rounds until a winner prevails at the end of the summer. With Facebook-integrated voting only on, our viewers will be able to vote for the video they like the best, however, voters will only be able to cast one ballot in each round, so they must choose wisely.
The brackets for the 2013 Battle of the Brands have been chosen at random and they will be live on the following dates:
June 17, 2013: Nitro vs. Giro
June 20, 2013: Volcom vs. Mervin
