686 x Scion SEMA Custom Snowboard Vehicle

686 teamed up with Scion Racing and Spin Imaging to develop a snowboard themed vehicle celebrating the 20th anniversary of the 686 brand for the 2011 SEMA show. Each aspect of the build was directly inspired from a product or brand that’s progressively pushed snowboarding and skateboarding over the past 20 year history of 686. New Balance, Union Bindings, Bern Helmets, Skullcandy, Dragon Optics, Vestal were just some of the brands that have lent their technologies to add to this collaboration.
