Forum Recon Snowboard - Sample 2014

Plowing runs and buttering rails will never feel as natural as they do on the Forum Recon Snowboard. Are you regular? Goofy? Whatever you are, this is the board that will help take your park riding to the next level. The Free Base is tough as nails and allows you to ride easy, even through some sketchy crud or into the parking lot if you happen to overshoot your target. Now, it's time to get poppy with the ChillyDog core and get out on some sick homemade kickers with the Forum Recon Snowboard. *This is a new demo product used only for show. It has never been used but may have slight cosmetic wear from transit.*
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 softer 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
Shape
Directional Twin
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
Die-cut Base - Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
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: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • 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.
  • Shape: Directional Twin
  • 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.
