BOARD: Franco Bronco Not sure
TEST YEAR: 2019 SHAPERSUMMIT SNOWBOARD REVIEWS
OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM 1 TO 7: 6
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Camber on a unique shape.
WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: It’s orange and blue.
OVERALL COMMENTS: I didn’t expect this board to be one of my favorites but it was. The shape was obvious it would perform in pow but I didn’t expect the ride from the pow to variability to transition so well. I think that’s where the camber comes in. I’m a sucker for camber. You’d be ripping pow effortlessly and pop out in to some moguls/ variable snow and there was no difference in my exertion of energy, that’s a big deal for me. I want to go for one type of terrain to another and feel like nothing changed. This board did that.
