TESTER: Stephanie Nitsch

BOARD: Elevated 5’0 5’0

TEST YEAR:   2019 SHAPERSUMMIT SNOWBOARD REVIEWS

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  6

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Its love for pow

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Small margin of error if you aren’t on your game. Took more than a few nose diggers…

OVERALL COMMENTS: This board is a helluva great time if you’re more of a back foot rider. No doubt this board is designed to surf the pow turns and get barreled. Turns on a dime and makes pumping the walls easy and natural. There seems to be a sweet spot for the amount of weight I could put on the front foot…which wasn’t much. Exceed that amount and I’d find myself face first in the snow.

RATE FLOAT IN POW FROM 1 TO 7:  6

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: EFFORTLESSLY FLOATY

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: Wish I took this out earlier in the day to get those untouched pow vibes going. I only got a taste of what it can do in great snow. The rest was in choppy pow and I wasn’t able to milk this board as much as I hoped to.
