The TRS is back as a Good Wood winner for a record-breaking 12th year in a row. The narrow version, for smaller riders, snagged another award for its powerful pop and versatility. Testers found the hybrid profile comprised of shortened rocker in the center, lengthened camber underfoot, and rocker in the tip and tail killed kickers and felt sturdy riding in and out of bounds. "Quick to initiate turns and a real hard carver," our tallest tester said. "I like the flex on this board, as it's super easy to pop. Nollies and butters were a breeze, though I washed out on my tail once, but that's pretty standard with this looser flex pattern," she explained. The sintered base was fast, and Magne-Traction sliced through the slop.
Length (cm) – Sidecut Radius (m) – Waist Width (cm)
148N – 7.9 – 23.7
151N – 8.1 – 24.7
Camber: XC2 (Rocker between the feet blends to camber beneath and outside them.)
(Flex is not standardized and differs by brand. The rating here is the best estimate of
the board's flex.)
(Sidecut Radius: Assuming a board 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.)
