The rocker-dominant profile of the Vixen utilizes reverse camber in the center and raised camber in the tips, which testers said created a floaty ride, stable enough to boost. “So fast and fun, this little bitty soared off kickers and felt solid on landings,” one Good Wood gal remarked. The true twin shape has a medium flex that presses easily and preloads strong ollies. As the most popular board in Smokin’s line, the Vixen claimed its third Good Wood stamp of approval for being a predicable deck poised to push park progression, thanks to its softer flex and forgiving ride.

Length (cm) – Sidecut Radius (m) – Waist Width (cm)
140 – N/A –23.3
144 – N/A – 23.3
148 – N/A – 23.5
153 – N/A – 23.8
156 – N/A – 24.2

Flex: 6/10

Camber: CTX (Rocker in the center with camber toward the tips.)

(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.)

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.
