Ride Powgoda 162 Snowboard Review 2018-2019
TESTER: Levi Johnson
BOARD: Ride Powgoda 162
OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM 1 TO 7: 2
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: The graphic
WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: It took a lot of effort to turn.
OVERALL COMMENTS: I really didn’t like this board. It was huge with a shallow sidecute, a small effective edge, and a lunch tray to turn. I understand the concept and think this board would be really fun in deep untracked powder, but that’s the only conditions for this board.
RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 7: 5
SHAPE COMMENT: FUN TO LOOK AT
ADDITIONAL SHAPE COMMENTS: I like the way it looks. The brand is sort of a boat or sailing theme and it’s definitely a boat.
RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 7: OK
FLEX COMMENT: TOO STIFF
ADDITIONAL FLEX COMMENT: Nose to tail the flex is ok, but torsionally is way to stiff.
RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS FROM 1 TO 7: SUCKS
STABILITY COMMENT: WHY DID I RIDE THIS THING
ADDITIONAL STABILITY COMMENTS: It was pretty hard pack with lots of chunder when I road this, and it’s definitely not a board built for those conditions.
RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 7: OK
COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:
ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS: Had ok pop, but wasn’t playful at all.
RATE FLOAT IN POW FROM 1 TO 7: RADICAL
COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: EFFORTLESSLY FLOATY
ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: I didn’t get to ride it in pow, but I’m almost sure it would float great.
RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 7: 6
GRAPHICS COMMENT: I’M FEELING IT
ADDITIONAL GRAPHICS COMMENTS: Best thing about the board.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY: Me not being a very big guy and the conditions definitely didn’t do this board any favors. I would like to try it agin maybe in some mellow back country or on a 12”+ day because I think that’s really what the idea for this board was.
