Men’s All-Mountain Snowboards Over $450: Smokin Awesymmetrical
This board’s twin, asymmetrical shape rips all over the mountain. The exaggerated sidecut on the heel edge helps you initiate turns better, aiding the normally minimal amounts of pressure you put on your heels. You also have Clash Rocker: Reverse camber in between the feet and regular camber outside them. You get the quick edge-to-edge feel of the reverse camber plus the stability and predictability of camber.
Available Sizes: 148, 152, 156, 156W, 159, 159W, 162, 162W
“Solid ride. Powers through chop and has good pop. Great in the pipe, too. This is Good Wood for sure.”
