SLASH STRAIGHT 163 SNOWBOARD REVIEW 2015
TESTER NAME: BEN GAVELDA
OCCUPATION: TRANSWORLD SNOWBOARDING CONTRIBUTER
BOARD: SLASH STRAIGHT 163
OVERALL: Ripping board that’s right between a surfy pow shape and a big mountain charger. Not too surfy and squirrely, yet the tapered shape floats and turns well. True to it’s name it handles speed and straightlines super well.
SHAPE: Perfect blend between floaty pow shape and directional charger.
FLEX:Nice medium-stiff flex, right on point..
STABILITY: Surprisingly stable for the pointy, tapered shape. Not sure if that edge bump makes it more stable or more jittery.
POP/PLAYFULNESS: Pretty dang good pop…could use a bit more camber extending through the tail.
THE LAST WORD: Maybe a few carbon stringers for more pop? Edge bump in the middle questionable?
