Some dece shots of some 2020 decks. I'll admit, the Deep Thinker x Harring graphic isn't as horrendous as initially thought. Still my least fave since its inception, though.

The all black FT is clean.  Also, NEED specs on these Hillside Aesmo decks

^the one thing that really makes me want to try the CR59 is that I would be able to make the deepest carves possible because I wouldn't boot out. However, that same width doesn't sound as fun at slow speed navigating through chopped up snow. 

It's stable and manageable in all conditions we've faced this season in Ontario. Carves really deep; the lines behind me are super thin because it's so wide. I haven't washed out at all. The width isn't something I think about, even when riding slower. It's definitely a charger, though, and I feel more rewarded by riding it fast and recklessly. 

Didn't love it in tighter, tracked out trees, but I don't really enjoy anything for those circumstances anyway. Not the funnest board on jumps as the tail's too short and stiff to load, but I've been under the impression that it's designed to stay on the snow and grip turns, which it does insanely well. The one concern I had was that the inserts were dimpling the base. I know well enough to remove my bindings when I wax, so that's not the issue. I don't overtighten my bolts, either. I figure it's just my heavy frame turning really hard, really fast and flexing the board torsionally. At this point it only seems to be a cosmetic issue as it hasn't had any effect on performance.

I should also add that it took some time to break in. At first, it felt even stiffer than the last time I rode a 2012 Custom X or the old Burton Dragon. It was exhausting to ride and felt "overbuilt." It's mellowed out noticeably since then. Stiff, but not like riding a door. 

I know Korua has been a thumbs-down experience for a handful of dudes here, but I've got nothing but good things to say. Probably not the right thread for this post either, but whatever. They're fucking fun. 

I agree with pretty much all of this, turns on my 56 Stealth have prob been my most memorable and deepest turns I've had on a board to date. Def is pretty stiff (esp if you're in the middle of weight class for the size), and takes getting used to especially during the above stated break-in period. But it is a ton of fun turning with, especially in softer conditions. And I personally enjoy taking mine on medium to bigger (ish) jumps, as I've found it's relatively easy to get sent to the flats on smaller jumps whenever I'm on my Koruas.

And I've been having that same dimpling issue on the base of my Korua boards also, was worried that it was from how tight I made the binding screws. Good to know it's not just me. Really been wondering what's causing this as I don't see this on my Orbit or Dump Truck at all.

it used to happen on virtually every snowboard. some companies/factories have obviously progressed past this, apparently some haven't.

maybe its from severe over tightening?

it doesn't really matter in the big picture

Ah, I see makes sense. And tbh, I do crank my bolts pretty tight. But like you mentioned, as long as it has no real effect on the performance of the base long term, I can be at peace lol.

I write here because i don t find the correct thread ..

last week i ve seen tech9 boards and i ve to say that they seem very interesting .. but my doubt is they are freestyle/jib focused ( i'm a man that like to carving on slopes to high speed and powder), someone have tested them?

I ve seen also the Zion , seem made well with cheap prices ..

what do you say about these 2 brands?

Thx a lot.

lolz 1) stop looking at Tech9 and 2) if you enjoy riding fast and carving why not consider the ridiculously fashionable and mystical world of directional boards??

I think Zoolander did the Haring collab first?

I’m down with the Zoo x Haring x B collab!! Watch out for MAGNUM as I’m coming down the slopes. Ya’ll ain’t ready!!

the only thing that kinda sucks is the wax stays thicker there

-- attachment is not available --

if you are not able to carve on groomers without your preferite quiver fishtail big nose fashion board is your problem not mine ... i carve with twins board too.. don t worry 

Instead to create flame , maybe it will  better explain your "full of contents" reply , not? if u really know anything about this.. i doubt it.

 

hey man, be easy.  According to Mike Ranquet, Terje says if you ain't hitting superpipe or AK lines, snowboarding is the rollerblading of board sports. So, yea, can't take any of this too seriously.  There's way too many assumptions here and the language barrier is tough.  I'm done responding bc I honestly don't even know how to and don't care to.  Anyways, welcome to EL I guess? Thanks for joining and starting to post.  Happy shredding.

Soy i m very easy man ..

I didn t say that i don like the quiver boards, in fact for the next season i want to take me home Ofsr quiver (Russ,Half and Cabin fever) they ve very amazing shapes and i love them ... my speech was concern about commercial fashion brands . Ofsr in italy is totally unknown 😀

So wait... these are mothership made? How does that fit in line with all Niche’s super duper eco friendly stuff? We know that place runs clean and is a pretty rad facility but other than the graphics, which look like they could be on Capita decks, Niche’s whole image seems to be more in line with Mervin. i.e. liscensing the mag and using all that basalt eco stuff instead of carbon. 

Btw I haven’t looked at niche decks in years but you screamed AETHER so loud in here and then dropped capita in the mix, I had to take a peak. The pyre actually looks dope.. directional, setback camber, no mag and I can throw it my recycle bin when I’m done😁

Hah. Had the aether out today and it's just solid at everything. But it wasn't all hardpack and on some groomer turns it dig in too much too deep, probably the only negative about it.. Interested in the non mag theme or knew as well.

Landed my first proper fs 540 into pow (well more like new soft snow over soft uneven tracked out snow) on it. Good times moment that will be a thing to remember! ... Wasn't super clean though.

Does anyone know any details about the three Kilroy boards that Burton is going to offer? Particularly interested in the 3D one.

Weird how Ride went from being completely off my radar of anything interesting to having several interesting things in a blip.
