RIDE DVA $230
The DVA’s sleek styling is complemented by top-notch functionality and comfort. Testers appreciated the tool-less adjustments, which fostered a secure fit and were easily accessed by flipping the incorporated rubber pads. The forged aluminum micro-disk baseplate created a seamless integration between binding, board, and boot, allowing testers to easily dial in stance preferences. Female-specific Slime backs provided the response necessary when riding steep, long lines but had just enough give in the park. And thanks to their plush nature, testers deemed the DVA’s ankle straps some of the most comfortable of the test. The DVA is anything but a high-maintenance diva.
RAD: Slime backs are rigid enough to meet allmountain demands but not too stiff.
BAD: The DVA is on the heavier end of the spectrum.
