Description

TESTER: Tom frampton

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.
