With easy turn initiation and an all-around forgiving ride, the sub 300-dollar Control is pure bang for the buck.
In its second Top 25 appearance in as many years, the 2000/01 model’s already well-devised shape saw the addition of a tip-to-tail woodcore. That core, and a rider-friendly flex, led to a recurrence of words like, “springy,” and “snappy,” on testers’ scorecards. Robyn found the Control a killer multi-use board; it ranked high in versatility with almost all the testers, but was especially liked by lighter, more finesse-type riders.
Under the power of stronger or heavier handlers, the Control might not have what it takes to keep you chargin’ (it’s pretty soft), but for an ultra-fun, low-effort outing, it’s just the call.
