For ladies getting started and looking to make a lifetime of riding lifts, the Cadence offers the right amount of versatile forgiveness to push your progression. As the only fully rockered women's deck on this winners list, the Cadence is a pressable-butter machine that's soft and easy to ride. One eager tester exclaimed, "Holy butterific! I don't think you can ride this board without trying at trying at least one butter!" Testers found this true twin to be friendly when trying new tricks, but noted it was too squirrelly when attempting bigger landings. "Holy butterific! I don't think you can ride this board without trying at trying at least one butter!" one eager tester exclaimed. "I loved how soft it was, but definitely felt like it would wash out at higher speeds," offered another. Testers also noted the Cadence was mellow to maneuver, tricks swung around easily and they didn't worry about getting caught up thanks to the skatey, GripTech edges. With a 100% sustainable poplar wood core, the Cadence is lightweight, and snappy, but too mushy for larger-sized jumps. This deck comes in a bevy of sizes, so whether you're a bigger gal, or a pint-sized ripper, there's a chance a Cadence will be sized for you.
