Gentemstick GT 168 Snowboard Review 2018-2019

Description

TESTER: Mark Winkelaar

BOARD: Gentemstick GT 168

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  5

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: First non camber board ever under biased feet and edge control was on point. Tune was premium.

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Not much at all. I’d need one day figuring it out to call it my own.

OVERALL COMMENTS: Super maneuverable. I like these shapes. Longer thin pencils are not the focus in the current trend, but this should be in the quiver of every rider. Smooth ride and still easy to switch directions. Trees and soft bumps we’re no prob, steeps and groom we’re rad. Also the color and finish was sick. Purple Rain.

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 7:  RADICAL

SHAPE COMMENT: AT THING OF BEAUTY

ADDITIONAL SHAPE COMMENTS:  Love the tail shape. No money bumps or nonsense, just perfect design.

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 7:   6

FLEX COMMENT:  JUST RIGHT

ADDITIONAL FLEX COMMENT:  Didn’t have to think about it. Always a great sign.

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS FROM 1 TO 7:   6

STABILITY COMMENT: PRETTY GOOD

ADDITIONAL STABILITY COMMENTS:

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 7:  6

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS: 

RATE FLOAT IN POW FROM 1 TO 7:    5

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: EASY TO STAY UP

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: Hunting pow was tricky, but soft was available. No prob.

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 7:  RADICAL

GRAPHICS COMMENT: AESTHETIC AND INSPIRING

ADDITIONAL GRAPHICS COMMENTS: Clean finish. Love the Gentemstick logo in the top sheet surface

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY: This is one I would wanna quiver.
