This is a board for the rider that wants something unique, fun, and capable in all conditions. I would say my favorite two categories on this board are carving and park. If you are looking to add a specialty board to the quiver or just find something different for a daily driver, this snowboard fits the bill. At the end of the day, I can say with confidence you’re going to be stoked on the Warpig.
The Never Summer Twenty Five is a great choice for the experienced rider looking for something that can take on steep lines, swivel through tree lines, and carve up groomers; it’s also going to be a solid choice on powder days providing lots of float. I would recommend this snowboard to intermediate riders and up due to the directional shape, stiff flex, and aggressive feel it provides.
The K2 Party Platter is a lively snowboard that is best suited for powder, carving, and generally just having a good time whatever the snow conditions may be. Its directional shape and short tail make the board very maneuverable and provide a fun, surfy feel on groomers. The two biggest highlights for me on this snowboard is how well it is able to carve and hold an edge, and how quickly you are able transition from edge to edge and change directions (even in deep heavy snow).
The GNU Nicolas Müllair snowboard is a top contender for the freerider looking for a powerful carving board that also floats easily in powder. Capable of charging variable terrain with superior grip and floating with ease in bottomless powder, this is a versatile snowboard that any experienced rider would enjoy.
The first thing I noticed when I picked up the Bataleon Magic carpet is how light it is! This snowboard has a very lightweight construction (mainly coming from the core materials used), which is a nice benefit. The side cut is also really fun for carving with speed and also feels maneuverable at slow speeds. However the biggest highlight on this snowboard is the 3BT three-dimensional base shape that impacts all aspects of the performance of this snowboard, in a good way.
The Rossignol Sushi is an excellent addition to your quiver as a dedicated powder board that can also double as fun carving snowboard. I would reserve this snowboard for deep powder days and early morning groomer laps. Overall the Sushi is a really fun snowboard, the shape alone lets you know you are about to have a good time! I would recommend this snowboard to intermediate riders and up.
You can see just from looking at the Burton Fish that this is a snowboard that is going to thrive in the powder. From the 30mm taper in the nose to the double swallowtail this board is built to float and slash on those deep days, but also has an aggressive sidecut that provides hard arcing turns when carving up groomers. This board is a great choice to get the most out of those deeper days.
The Lib Tech Travis Rice Pro HP is a great choice for the all-mountain rider who enjoys charging with speed and likes to get aggressive with their carves, having super-strong and reliable grip on ice is another huge bonus with this snowboard.
The Jones Flagship snowboard is something special. This is a high-end, purpose specific snowboard that has incredible lift and float through powder while also being a phenomenal all-mountain carver. The spooned nose and tail provide a very catch free feel, which balances well with the regular camber and stiff flex
From steep and deep pow lines to navigating an icy maze or sending booters, the Jones Mountain Twin will deliver. This is the powerhouse of all mountain twin snowboards, equipped to do it all.
