“This board does it all. It pops, presses, bonks, and rides fast,” one tester said. Most concurred the Outerspace Living felt comfortable in any situation they found themselves in. While it’s in the middle of the flex scale, the subtle early rise on the nose and tail made pressing fairly easy. It was designed to be more of an all-mountain freestyle board, but one tester, the Team Utah head snowboarding coach, confirmed the flex was also perfect for any park rider at any skill level. “Huge carves, mad pop, and an aggressive ride,” another reported. It was said to have sick flex for pressing rails and boxes, both regular and switch, and to be strong on takeoff with great pop. The twin nose and tail rock upward to add float while camber begins just outside the inserts to give it snap and keep it strong on edge. “It presses super evenly and pops back with authority,” one said, then added that Capita gave it a nice balance point when pressing and it was light and snappy, and carved and held an edge like no other. The topsheet is reinforced with Titanal (a type of really strong aluminum) strips that strengthen the topsheet and help transfer power to the core. Bonus: At just $400, you can save some cash for beer, gas, and the occasional green pass.

Length (cm) – Sidecut Radius (m) – Waist Width (cm)

150 – 7.45 – 24.95
152 – 7.6 – 24.95
154 – 7.7 – 25.15
156 – 7.8 – 26.4
158 – 7.85 – 25.45

Flex: 5/10

Camber: Freeride Profile (Positive camber between the inserts with reverse camber outside and Wah-Pow! Flat Kick tips.)

(Flex is not standardized and differs by brand. The rating here is the best estimate of
the board’s flex.)

(Sidecut Radius: If you arced the tightest turn possible to make a complete circle, the sidecut radius would be the distance between the direct center of that circle and its rim, in meters. A board with a deeper sidecut would have a smaller radius and would generally make tighter turns. As the radius number increases, a board can be expected to make wider turns. Multiple numbers on the same length board means the radius is blended.)

Good Wood 2017 Presented by evo.com

With hundreds of snowboards out there, how do you pick the best deck perfectly suited to the way you ride? Drop into our 2016-2017 Good Wood Board Test for the winning snowboards of the season. Our 30 unique testers spent eight days riding and rating more than 300 boards at Carinthia Parks of Mount Snow, Vermont, and the pistes and glades of Aspen Mountain, Colorado, and came to the consensus that these are the best boards. Each tester rides differently, so there's something to be said when a board stokes all who tried it. We’ve done away with the old price groupings and instead highlighted the two top-scoring boards in each category with the lowest prices and awarded them “Bang for your Buck” badges of approval. Now in its 18th year, our TransWorld SNOWboarding Good Wood test is the longest running and most prestigious board test on the planet.

How The Boards Are Scored

Shortly after shredding laps on each board, our testers input scores for different characteristics that measure each deck on a sliding scale. The Park and All-Mountain scorecards each have different criteria to pinpoint the strengths and weakness of each snowboard. We don't cut the boards open and examine the details, but the crew may have broken a deck or two… Go on, dive into the results and see all the winners.
