Board: Soulstick Pocket Rocket
Camber Possibility: Directional camrocker. Extra rocker within the nostril, minimal camber underneath foot, tiny rocker within the tail.
Bindings: K2 Indy
Stance: 21.5 broad 15 destructive 12 Goofy
Boots: K2 Thraxis Measurement 10
My Weight: 195lbs
Resort: Copper Mountain
Circumstances: 2 toes of contemporary, a mixture of overcast and blue skies, colder to hotter temps inflicting the blower pow to show to scorching pow, and gentle wind.
Flex: This board is definitely delicate for its dimension and form. What you get is an insanely delicate nostril that stiffens up proper earlier than the entrance insert pack after which stays at that flex right through the tail. There’s little or no torsional flex. If I needed to classify the flex it’s a barely softer than center of the street powder flex.
Stability: That width simply offers you insane stability underneath foot. The nostril is tremendous delicate and the one factor I observed was that at excessive speeds it might slap into the bottom. I’m speaking drastic pterodactyl type flapping. In actually rutted out terrain this board would get bucked round if the snow was agency or scraped off.
Ollies/Pop: All of the snap comes off the again foot and is 100% rider initiated. So hopefully you didn’t skip leg day.
Butterability: Didn’t occur.
Carving: Oh my expensive god this board was so difficult to carve with. First off you will have a board that’s wider than a Mack truck. Then you will have an efficient edge and make contact with level that modifications the way you provoke turns with this. I’ve by no means been so scared to trip a groomer in my life. It took me a number of runs to determine that you just steer this board from contained in the entrance foot and off the again foot. Virtually such as you’re using a slalom skateboard. It is advisable to get cruising earlier than you interact the sting and provoke a flip. Then when you do that you just’re mainly rocking backwards and forwards whereas heaving your weight into the camber to maintain it on edge. This board is not any resort powder pleasant within the slightest if you must trip a groomer to get round to get the products.
Rider in Thoughts: Somebody that’s going to trip nothing however untracked pow.
Private Ideas: Fuck this board gave me a piece out and a half. I haven’t been this destroyed from using a snowboard in years. My abs, quads, calves, and hips harm. You must be so aggressive with this board to get it to activate a groomer. In deep snow it’s a fucking dream, don’t let me dissuade you from that. The tail sinks, the nostril rolls up on high with no effort, however something that isn’t at the least four inches deep you’re working WAY TOO HARD for what you get. This board is 100% a novelty stick for somebody chasing pow.
