Description

TESTER: Ian Haney

BOARD: Rossignol Shashimi 156

TEST YEAR:   2019 SHAPERSUMMIT SNOWBOARD REVIEWS

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  6

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Very smooth and easy to ride in variable conditions. Urethane is a fantastic material imo

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Lots of taper. Would be interested to try a slightly larger size or a little less taper, back foot is pretty narrow and tail can be a little bit washy

OVERALL COMMENTS: Very fun easy to ride board. Great for long runs in variable conditions. Floats well for being on the shorter side and holds its line well. I’d like to see a bit more width under the back foot is all

BOARD STYLE: POWDER BOARD   FREERIDE BOARD    

CONDITIONS TESTED IN: HARDPACK    POWDER

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 7:  5

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS: PRETTY DARN FUN

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:  Felt pretty lively. Less material in the tail due to the width makes it feel a bit less snappy than others

RATE FLOAT IN POW FROM 1 TO 7:  6

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: EASY TO STAY UP

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: Huge nose and large taper makes it easy to stay on top.

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 7:  5

GRAPHICS COMMENT: I’M FEELING IT

ADDITIONAL GRAPHICS COMMENTS: Like the variety of colors available. Little bit louder than what I’d normally lean towards, but love that you can see the construction of the board.
