Arbor Coda 156 SNOWBOARD REVIEW 2016

Description

TESTER: Chad Cremers

BOARD: Arbor Coda 156

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 10:  6

OVERALL COMMENTS: Grip tech is a bit grabby and unpredictable, but a fun all mountain board that is fairly damp yet poppy and playful, with good a flex and sidecut. If this thing had normal edges it would be a radical board!

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 5:     4

SHAPE COMMENT: directional twin with a cool noise and tail shape.

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 5:     4

FLEX COMMENT: mid-stiff flex that is nice and fun for all-mountain riding.

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS:    2

STABILITY THROUGH TURNS: grip-tech is a little unpredictable making it hard to initiate and exit a smooth powerful carve without loosing energy, it’s also not that noticeable in steeper firm snow.

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 5:    4

GRAPHICS COMMENT: Similar graphics to arbors of years past with a nice looking bamboo top sheet and a overlain graphic.

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 5:    4

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS: Fun all mountain board that has some pop but is also damp enough to ride through chop and not get bucked.

RATE FLOAT IN POW IF AVAILABLE FROM 1 TO 5:    4

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: Didn’t ride powder but it seems that it would perform like a normal camber snowboard which is awesome! It’s also not a powder shape that really excels in the deep.

ANYTHING YOU WOULD CHANGE ABOUT THIS BOARD TO MAKE IT BETTER:  Remove the grip-tech.
