The Tempest opens doors to a world of riding temptations with its all-mountain abilities. Riders Corrie Rudshauser and Mayumi Fukuda worked on the design, and Product Manager Paolo Dabbeni explains the Tempest as a “women’s specific design with a narrower waist and tighter sidecut.”

Described by the testers as a versatile ride for the powerful ripper, Janet wrote she’d “use this board for everything. I could maneuver it well in different snow conditions and terrain.”

Though designed specifically for women, Lisa said the Tempest isn’t gender-biased: “It’s definitely for an advanced female rider, but my boyfriend could ride it too. If you ride a few times a year, don’t buy it. If you like to charge, this is a good choice.”
