FRANCO SNOWSHAPES SWALLOWTAIL 160 REVIEW 2015
TESTER NAME: SHANE ROTHMAN
OCCUPATION: MTNWARRIOR RENEGADE, SNOWKING PARK DIGGER
BOARD: FRANCO SWALLOWTAIL 160
OVERALL: Classic/timeless piece of art that outperforms all technology
SHAPE: No tail provides for quick turns in deep pow, tapered and setback perfect for a 160
FLEX: Stiff lil tail was perfect for wheelies and even fun for Ollie’s in the hardpack
GRAPHICS: Almost too pretty to ride, but it needs to be ridden whenever it’s pretty..
STABILITY: This swallowtail is capable of high speeds, hard landings and even moguls, it is not fragile by any means.
POP/PLAYFULNESS: Get swervy in the back seat, and feel the stiffness in the little tail when you Ollie on hardpack
FLOAT IN POW: It doesn’t need the exagerrated nose because of the stance/tail.
THE LAST WORD: This may be the most beautiful board at the PowWow.
