Ben Bogart's pro model has become popular for both male and female boarders, ranging in size from 146 to 155. This year it scored yet another well-deserving Good Wood accolade, with one tester describing it as a "cooperative board that does everything you want it to." This snowboard promises a downright fun ride from hit to hit and sports a flat camber profile all the way through. Testers noted that its middle-of-the-road stiffness made for a stable and predictable ride that was "solid for popping on and off rails," while also proving versatile outside of the park.

Good Wood 2019 presented by

Buying a new snowboard shouldn't be an arduous task. But with hundreds of options to choose from, narrowing down options can be an overwhelming process. The internal struggle boils down to the reality that these things aren't cheap. With that in mind, Good Wood's intent has always been to best serve you in your quest to purchase the deck most deserving of your money. This season, our diverse crew of testers returned to the steeps of Snowbird, Utah for the all-mountain category and the progressive features of Carinthia at Mount Snow, Vermont for the park division. In the end, we came back with a collection of boards that are worthy of TransWorld's esteemed Good Wood stamp of approval.

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.
