DI­NOSAURS WILL DIE

Kwon $500

Transworld Snowboarding - - MEN’S ALL MOUNTAIN -

This clas­sic DWD model gets re­vamped for the sea­son, re­tain­ing pos­i­tive cam­ber be­tween the feet that gives way to a flat-to-rocker sec­tion out­side the in­serts, with the wel­comed in­tro­duc­tion of a min­i­mal ta­per and el­lip­ti­cal side­cut that make this rein­car­na­tion a powfloat­ing, carve-rail­ing all-moun­tain ma­chine that still wants to get loose in the park. Testers loved its medium flex, prais­ing the Kwon for its play­ful, jib-ready feel that main­tains enough sta­bil­ity and edge­hold to meet the de­mands of a place like Snow­bird. As one tester pointed out, “You could take it out any day and not be tossed be­tween choos­ing your park board or an all-moun­tain deck.”
