Stepchild Pony : Good Wood 2015

Women’s All-Mountain Snowboard Reviews

Because every girl wants to ride a Pony, Stepchild created a female-specific deck that's all about being fun, snappy, and awesome in all conditions. The playful flex and Cherry Pop profile puts reverse camber in the center, camber underfoot and reverses it out to the tip and tail for reliable snap and solid control. The badass graphic will have you wanting to slay all day, just to show your pretty kitty off.  Meow.

Price: $399

Available Sizes: 143, 147, 151

Tester Comments

"Playful, light, and poppy. It's enough to fit all skill sets. Butter-able without catch but holds its own over large jumps and through thick chunks."

Good Wood 2015 Snowboard Test Presented by

How do you pick the board that rides the way you want from the thousands of options out there? The answer: with the Good Wood 2015 Snowboard Test results. This year our 18 testers spent eight days hammering 400 boards through the park and pistes of Winter Park, Colorado. Each of these testers rides a little differently from one another, so there's something to be said when a board stokes out all who tried it. With the scores tallied for the 16th annual Good Wood, we present the best performing all-mountain and park boards of the year.

How The Boards Are Scored

Shortly after burning some laps on each board, our test crew inputs scores for 18 characteristics that measure the ride 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 often does break a deck or three. Once the winners are calculated, the testers are long gone, and the cardboard dust has settled from shipping, we package the tester feedback and send it to the brands involved, which they can use to help make better boards.
