DC PBJ Snowboard : Good Wood 2015 Reviews
Men’s Park Snowboard Under $450
It’s all in the name. DC’s classic “park board for jibbing” features simple and timeless design qualities that excel from park to street. The twin-tip shape and straight-up camber keep it poppy and predictable, while the biax fiberglass makes it soft and easy to maneuver. The Radius 2 Flat tips lock into presses and load up ollies with ease. It’s ready to ride right out of the wrapper with factory-finished three-degree edge bevel. Comes without a topsheet to save weight and liven up the flex and pop, too.
Available Sizes: 144, 149, 153, 155W, 157, 159W
“This board is f—kin’ sick. Perfect all-around park board, great on jumps and rails. Hauling ass was slightly chattery but not too bad at all. I would buy this board for sure.”
Good Wood 2015 Presented by THE-HOUSE.com
How do you pick the board that rides the way you want from the thousands of options out there? The answer: with the Good Wood 2015 Snowboard Test results. This year our 18 testers spent eight days hammering 400 boards through the park and pistes of Winter Park, Colorado. Each of these testers rides a little differently from one another, so there’s something to be said when a board stokes out all who tried it. With the scores tallied for the 16th annual Good Wood, we present the best performing all-mountain and park boards of the year.
How The Boards Are Scored
Shortly after burning some laps on each board, our test crew inputs scores for 18 characteristics that measure the ride 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 often does break a deck or three. Once the winners are calculated, the testers are long gone, and the cardboard dust has settled from shipping, we package the tester feedback and send it to the brands involved, which they can use to help make better boards.
