Grease Gun $700

Transworld Snowboarding - - MEN’S ALL MOUNTAIN -

If one board in the test cap­tured snow­board­ing’s core essence, this was it. Not only are these hand­made boards built to or­der in Bri­tish Co­lum­bia, with tinted resin top­sheets that dif­fer deck to deck, what sets their ride apart is how they in­voke a time­less, carve-ori­ented feel, re­call­ing snow­board­ing’s surfing roots. Thanks to a ta­pered di­rec­tional shape and deep, groomer-hun­gry side­cut, the Grease Gun is equally in its el­e­ment on hard­pack and slash­ing waist-deep pow. As one tester ex­plained, “It had a snappy fin­ish in turns and though upon first flex felt soft, on-hill it was per­fect: poppy and plenty sta­ble.”
