Grassroots Slasher 140 Snowboard Review 2018-2019- Rated Radical!

Description

TESTER: Chris Pearson

BOARD: Grassroots Slasher 140

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 10:  Radical (10)

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Couldn’t believe how natural it felt to carve powder turns with no bindings

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: That I couldn’t spend more time on it

OVERALL COMMENTS: Felt a little deeper and more connected with the snow and board than with the larger surface area of the flying carpet. The tail punched into the snow a bit more so I had a little bit better control over speed and inspired a bit more confidence to turn harder and make some tighter slashes.

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 7:  RADICAL

SHAPE COMMENT: AT THING OF BEAUTY

ADDITIONAL SHAPE COMMENTS:  More maneuverable in thinner snowpack than the flying carpet

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 7:   RADICAL

FLEX COMMENT:  JUST RIGHT

ADDITIONAL FLEX COMMENT:  Fairly stiff but had much more flex than I expected just by looking at how thick it is

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS:   6

STABILITY COMMENT: PRETTY GOOD

ADDITIONAL STABILITY COMMENTS: Double concave had a nice feel in the powder and I imagine has an impact on how well you can bite into the snow as you roll the board into a carve

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 7: 

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:  Only played with pumping and trying to pop ollies and shove its a bit towards the bottom of my runs so I don’t have enough experience to rate how it performed. Would love to spend more time on one of these to work on bindingless ollie technique

RATE FLOAT IN POW FROM 1 TO 7:    RADICAL

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: EFFORTLESSLY FLOATY

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW:

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 7:  RADICAL

GRAPHICS COMMENT: AESTHETIC AND INSPIRING

ADDITIONAL GRAPHICS COMMENTS: Love the mountain cutout on the foot pad and all of the die-sub base graphics are awesome
