Gentemstick Mountain racer 154 SNOWBOARD REVIEW 2016

Description

TESTER: Brent Fullerton

BOARD: Gentemstick Mountain racer 154

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 10:  8

OVERALL COMMENTS: Quick and surfy

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 5:     4

SHAPE COMMENT: Condition specific shape performs best in soft snow. The lack of sidecut makes it hard to grip an edge on steeper hard pack and icy conditions but allows you to plane around in soft snow. The quick edge to edge transitions in powder offer a fun short board surfy style of riding

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 5:     4

FLEX COMMENT: A softer flex is perfect for a board that excels in soft snow. Good torsional flex for quick turns

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS:    3

STABILITY THROUGH TURNS: Good stability in soft snow and lower angle terrain. I found it to be unstable and unable to hold an edge on steeper, hard pack terrain at higher speeds

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 5:    5

GRAPHICS COMMENT: All gentem graphics are rad because they fit the simplistic design of the boards

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 5:    5

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS: Softer flex doesn’t have much pop. Incredibly playful in the soft snow and lower angle hard pack/ groomers

RATE FLOAT IN POW IF AVAILABLE FROM 1 TO 5:    5

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: Flat camber, set back stance, and a large nose with early rise combine to give this board max float

ANYTHING YOU WOULD CHANGE ABOUT THIS BOARD TO MAKE IT BETTER:  No. When I rode the mountain racer I could tell it was made for a specific style of riding
