Is a few laps on each snowboard really enough time to do a review? It’s probably more common than you think.
The Ride Alter Ego snowboard has a split tail that you can lock or unlock for different board feel.
Arbor has given the Coda a brand new shape for 2014 and although I haven’t ridden this board before, I liked both the Blacklist and the Element RX that I’ve ridden in the past so I was anxious to see how well this all-mountain board would stack up. I was too busy riding knee deep…
I hit up the Burton tent. It had snowed a ton the previous day so I was looking for a board that would handle whatever was left of the sidepow, and since I’d had my eye on a Sherlock anyways it felt like a good time to try it out.
This year’s Holy Moly II is basically an overhaul of the original so I’m not sure why they stuck with that name rather than call it something else. I didn’t ride the original so I can’t make a comparison to that, but here’s how the very last “best park board in the world” stacks up.
The Machete GT is a board that has had my curiosity for some time now. When I first heard about a Ride board coming with a new tech called “Pop Walls” I was very interested.
I’ve been hearing a lot about Arbor snowboards lately and although they’ve always appealed to me aesthetically with a lot of sexy woodgrain topsheets, I’ve never had a chance to ride one. This year at Test Fest I finally got a chance and started out with the Blacklist, a midwide true twin park-flexing all-mountain do-it-all board.
Burton’s flagship deck, if you haven’t heard of the Custom go put your ski-blades back on and get out of here. How’s it stack up?
