Winning its third Good Wood award in a row, the Space Metal Fantasy is crafted to catapult riders to the outer limits of park riding with its hybrid camber profile and twin shape that testers said encouraged personal progression. “This board was super responsive, and I loved how it saved me when I was hauling ass into a big jump and almost ate it,” one lady reported, smiling. It maneuvered easily, locked onto jibs, and was snappy, so testers felt comfortable hitting big kickers and attempting new spins. The profile is flat between the inserts, transitions to reverse camber underfoot, then kicks back to flat in the tip and tail for a smooth, catch-free ride.

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

141 – 6.8 – 23.1
143 – 6.9 – 23.3
145 – 7.1 – 23.6
147 – 7.3 – 23.9
149 – 7.5 – 24.1
151 – 7.7 – 24.3
153 – 7.9 – 24.5

Flex: 4/10

Camber: Urban Profile (Flat between the feet transitions to mellow rocker outside then 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.
