Forum Recon Snowboard - Blem 2013

You won't be calling in for backup with the Forum Recon Snowboard. Mowing down the mountain, tearing down walls, slaughtering rails or curb-stomping on kickers are not rare on a mission with this deck. A stiffer tail and ChillyDog with Pop provide a forgiving stable feel so you can show no remorse for the gruesome acts you've committed and unmatched ollie pop to give you a little extra lift every day. As you pick off those features one by one without thinking, just remember the Recon has got your back. *This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.
Rocker Type
ChillyDog with Pop - This features all the stability, predictability, and forgiving feel of Continuous Rocker, but with special focused Pop zones just outside of your stance. The core profile is matched with poppy sections in the nose and tail, and softness between the feet. Load up the increased surface area in the nose or tail for ridiculous ollie power when you need a little extra to get you up and over.
Flex
Flex Rating: 4 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - A medium flex that is perfect for popping and pressing
Sidecut
Twin-Like
Core
Popular - The freestyle feel of poplar laminates makes this a popular core with mass appeal. Light, flexible, and forgiving, with more pop than foam, this core brings the smooth and predictable rip of natural wood to the shredding masses.
Laminates
Biax - With a configuration to make any board smooth, forgiving, and fun to ride, Biax is constructed with strands that crisscross at a 90-degree angle.
Base
FreeBase - Waxes easy for speed, emphasizes die-cut graphics, and protects the core from getting worked on run-outs though the parking lot
Additional Features
Note: This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.
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: Rocker
    Rocker
    A rocker board side profile is the opposite of a camber board, with a smooth downward curvature to it and less edge contact length when the board is weighted. Rocker boards float well in powder and pivot more easily underfoot. They also tend to be less “hooky” at both tip and tail and better for landing spin maneuvers when you don’t quite have enough rotation.
  • Flex Rating: Medium
    Medium
    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.
