TOP 5 POWDER BOARDS 2018
March is here and the weather is shifting towards spring, bringing us bluebird days, BBQ’s and some dirty goggle tans. Despite this increase in temperature, this season’s quite ridiculous snowfall has left a solid base for fresh snow to settle on, especially at higher altitude resorts, making it a great opportunity to grab some last-minute backcountry runs in the sunshine.
Below you’ll find the best boards we’ve enjoyed shredding powder with this season, and best of all their all now in our sale.
Short and fat, the 420 floats over everything from champagne powder to crud while the tight sidecut and stubby length make it easy to manoeuvre through tree lines and on the piste.
Internally it has a super-light core reinforced with bamboo all sandwiched between tri-ax glass resulting in a poppy, lightweight and stable ride.
A playful backcountry board that lets you bring park tricks to the deep snow, it comes with a tapered twin shape balancing riding switch, controlled spins and impressive float.
The board’s profile is Salomon’s famed Rock Out camber which combines flat between your bindings for stability, camber near the feet for response and a rocker on the tip/tail to avoid catching an edge.
Great fun all over the mountain it excels in powder, keeping you wanting one more run.
Profile: Powder Hull
The 20/20 is all about YES combining their revolutionary powder hull with a twin shape board. Two concave shapes at the nose and tail draw air under the board while dropping the tail creating the float and manoeuvrability of a directional board that spins as a balanced twin.
FT Story Board
A high-performance board aimed at experienced riders, it provides extra lift in deep snow while remaining light and agile for fun tree runs and wet snow. Inside, you’ll find a lively and responsive Superfly core with a hybrid carbon/glass layer on top delivering support and pop in all the right places.
Profile: Directional Rocker
Built around a directional rocker profile, Jones have created a mellow riding board that come with a softer tail for user-friendly powder turns and control while the full poplar core delivers reliable poppy performance when you need it.
