Kid­well RT2 $510

Transworld Snowboarding - - MEN’S ALL MOUNTAIN -

When you’ve got a board bear­ing the Fa­ther of Freestyle’s name, it bet­ter be good. Throw­ing it back to Kid­well’s orig­i­nal 1985 Round­tail graphic, this re­vamp­ing of a SIMS clas­sic is built with the mod­ern all-moun­tain freestyler in mind. No crazy gim­micks here, just a di­rec­tional, cam­bered snow­board with enough ta­per to pro­vide op­ti­mal float on the deep days, and trench-carv­ing prow­ess on the rest. “The clas­sic, cam­bered shape keeps things pre­dictable when con­di­tions be­come less than ideal,” men­tioned one tester. “It’s a nice, mid­weight board that han­dles air­time with style and grace.” As a vet­eran tester elo­quently pointed out, “It’s a fuck­ing Kid­well.”
