Forum Rat Snowboard - Blem 2013

The Forum Rat Snowboard is a limited-distribution board, only available to exclusive specialty shops. It's loaded with Pop Camber for bigger ollies up to rails, wall rides, and ledges; while Bad Ass materials fend off metal, cement, and blacktop scarring. If you are charging through the gnarliest of gnar, keep charging with the Forum Rat Snowboard. Note: *This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.*
Rocker Type
Pop Camber - This profile has added Pop zones that increase the surface area just inside the contact points at the nose and tail. The Pop zones create a bigger area to ollie off, and that means bigger ollies. The increased surface also gives more to balance on when pressing, combined with a reduced camber height means longer locked-in presses.
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - 2, a softer flex meant for the park, so you can pop, press, and jib with ease.
Sidecut
Twin
Core
Bad Ass - Featured in Forum's urban decks, this core is meant to take a beating. It’s strong and durable without adding weight, yet still maintains a lively ride. It is also beefed up under each foot with high strength-to-weight wood for better durability where you need it most.
Laminates
Bad Ass Glass - Featured in Forum's urban boards and built to withstand life on the streets, Bad Ass Glass features a unique layup that is 20% stronger than anything previously developed. All this added strength without any extra weight or sacrificing flex.
Base
FreeBase - Waxes easy for speed, emphasizes die-cut graphics, and protects the core from getting worked on run-outs though the parking lot
Edges
Beveled Edges - No need to take that stone to your edges anymore, and forget catching your edge on that rusty rail or that rutted-out transition, this 3-degree slant will give you the confidence to stomp the double kink first try.
Additional Features
Bad Ass Materials - All Forum's urban decks come fully reinforced with a complete package of stronger, more durable solid wood cores, crack-proof glass, and tougher, thicker edges that stand up to the abuse of cement, wood, and metal urban riding.
Binding Compatibility
2 x 4 Inserts pattern

Specs

  • Terrain: Freestyle
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Flat/Camber/Flat
    Flat/Camber/Flat
    This profile is very similar to full camber, except that it has a mellower flat area from the bindings out. This will make it more forgiving and easier to do some tricks in the park.
  • Flex Rating: Soft
    Soft
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
