TESTER: Jack Stevens
BOARD: Arbor Clovis 156
TEST YEAR: 2019 SHAPERSUMMIT SNOWBOARD REVIEWS
OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM 1 TO 7: 5
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: The board turned easily, and was a lot of fun popping off hits, landing stable, and surfacing in pow.
WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: It felt loose at times, not as stable as I would’ve liked in some chop
OVERALL COMMENTS: I felt comfortable in the board. In powder it surfaced quite well, it popped nice because it had a tail, and turned nice with camber under feet. At times I wish it was a bit more stable on he chop, maybe a slightly stiffer nose? Or a touch more camber? Either way, lots of fun.
