An all-new offering from Rome's ladies' line-up, the Kashmir made its debut by snagging Good Wood gold in its first year. Ladies gravitated towards this deck's progressive shape that is actually a true twin and has medium flex. Testers praised this decks stability, and lauded it for being primed for larger sized hits. "This board is on the firmer side of park-sticks, so you really had to work for those presses, but damn she was a beast on jumps," a tester grinned, post-park lap. As a good go-to when boosting bigger hits, testers found the Kashmir also rode switch well, despite its pointed tail. "Honestly, I was a wee bit nervous about that tail, but it ripped the same when riding regular or setting up for a switch hit." Thanks to its twin-shape. A smooth, surfy, solid ride, the Kashmir is ready to rip. Where would you take this Kashmir?

Good Wood 2018 presented by evo.com

With hundreds of options available, how do you pick the best snowboard for you and your riding? The 2017-2018 Good Wood board test is a great place to start. Every board in here has been through rigorous rounds of testing in the environments it's intended for, and passed. Between the feature-filled freestyle terrain at Carinthia at Mount Snow in Vermont, and the rugged steeps of Snowbird, Utah, our eclectic and discerning testers rode and rated hundred of snowboards, ultimately concluding that these are the pinnacle of this season's freestyle and freeride offerings, respectively. Our crew is comprised of riders of riders of vastly varying sizes and backgrounds, with two commonalities: they're all experienced snowboarders with astute product knowledge. When a board stokes out the majority of this group, it means something. In addition to the park and all-mountain Good Wood accolades, we award two boards in each category with the “Bang for your Buck” designation, meaning they're the top-performers with the lowest price tags. Now in its 19th year, TransWorld SNOWboarding's Good Wood is the longest-running and most credible snowboard test on the planet.

How The Boards Are Scored

Shortly after ripping laps on each model, our testers score the board based on a comprehensive set of characteristics that include edgehold, pop, swingweight, turn initiation, stability, and flex. The scorecards for the park and all-mountain categories of the test each have unique and specific criteria designed to pinpoint the strengths and weakness of a snowboard in the setting respective to its category. Beyond the quantifiable scoring, we also ask testers to comments on each facet of the board's performance. These notes we refer to extensively when writing each review. Dive into the results and see what performed for our testers, then find what will work for you.
